Looks like someone needs to get the sand out of their who-ha, and there was a lot whining in that first post.

Here's something that guy will probably never realize, if you dont like, dont support it. Dont go around crying like.....

....well you get the point.

Ok... I could not see any replies since I'm not signing up for that site just to see them. But... What's the big deal? From his descriptions I was expecting something a bit more... Extreme.

I definately agree with some of the posts that the thread would have been deleted or locked sooner if it wasn't started by someone related to them. I can't tell you how many times I get the rss feed and then click on it to read the thread and it has been deleted.

It was a fun read though...think I'll go buy me some Clown Shoes tonight.

edit: this one just just deleted in like 30 seconds:

Let's see how many threads about Clown Shoes can get locked...

Is this guy (girl?) bitching because they use a little bit of sex (and I use the term VERY loosely) to sell beer? Has anybody seen a BMC commercial lately? How is simply having a black woman with angel wings on a beer considered racist and sexist? Uhm... A black woman is not an inherently offensive image. Tramp stamp is a slang term in common use, not some derogitory sexist thing. And the robot? Come on... that's BARELY suggestive.

I couldn't see the remainder of the thread, but that opener is just lame.

I'm going to return some bottles today, and buy a few more.

Now they're all going to be Clown Shoes beers.

I like their beers, and their labels.

"God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion.... And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms.... The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." - Thomas Jefferson, in letter to William S. Smith, 1787

Talk about judging a book by its cover...The guy needs to focus on the taste, not the label.

Having said that, I've not been impressed with a single Clown Shoes beer. They clearly need to use clever labels to sell their beer cause the taste alone won't do it.

These Clown Shoes guys are pushing the limits of decency and it shouldn't be tolerated! Laugh all you want but this form of suggestive marketing just leads to EVIL things like dancing or drinking! Sinners, sinners, SINNERS! (removes tongue from cheek)
