I tried to drink a bit more off camera and just couldnt choke it down. I honestly thought that it HAD to have some redeeming qualities, but alas, it did not. I feel relatively certain that it will not get any better with age.

Truly a terrible idea on my part.

Oh man, I busted a gut laughing over that video--best thing to happen to me today. Thanks for taking us along for the ride, and for posting the results online. I still stand by my initial vote...I'm glad you tried it, even if it came out pretty much the way most thought it would. The boundaries of knowledge have been pushed outward, cheers!

Ok, I got the video loaded up, but there is a fair amount of traffic past my office today, so I will have to hold off on watching until lunchtime. After reading these comments I don't want to risk laughing out loud with obscene adjectives mixed in from amazement/horror.

And, Creamy, you really didn't look anything like I pictured you. That's a good thing. I was picturing someone who looked a bit more like Louis CK. Maybe part of that comes from your avatar.

Looking forward to this! I should drop my backup disk off to the bank before lunch and grab some Pepto-Bismol before I watch. Maybe skip eating today.

What you didnt see in the second sip was the fact that the slime is uneven. As I tilted to get a larger sip I had a few seconds of slimeless mead followed by a gush of slime that hit my mouth at once. Unpleasant.

Oy, watching that glutinous gel oooze through the strainer into the glass, I just threw up in my mouth....A LOT!



I'm going to stick to my bacon bourbon I made last night. Thanks for sharing.

And you do look a little like TSA, but not as creepy.

Probably just stating the obvious here, but why not the two together?!
