I remember a few years ago watching a movie set in the future where all restaurants were Taco Bell.

All I can say after reading this news today is thank God for homebrewing and thank God for micro-breweries.

Apparently from now on BMC will be B M/C. Or something.

Question: if Miller and Coors merge will Miller products taste more watery?

That movie was Idiocracy, and it is truly a great film. "HOW ABOUT A BIG-ASS TACO!!??

Um, if miller products were any more watery, they'd be water.

No, it was Demolition Man. All restaurants are taco bell! It had that chick in it -- oh I can never remember her name, the one from the movie where she plays an FBI agent in a beauty pageant.
"All beers are Miller/Coors." I can't imagine that!
The silver/gold bullet -- taste great, less filling, and also a viable substitute for your daily water intake requirements... Damn health food, for crying out loud!

The movie was Demolition Man.
The question is will they be using rice or corn?
And what will they call it?
Coolers?

Well, they did something similar in Idiocracy too. I haven't seen demolition man in at least 5 years, and hopefully it'll be 5 more...

It was Sandra Bullock, playing the role of her wonderful acting career alongside a couple of other career performances by Snipes and Stallone.

Odd this wasn't in this morning's WSJ.
Maybe next time we're at the bar with "Miller Lite girls" they'll come by when nobody is drinking Lite but someone is drinking Coors or Blue Moon...
Seriously, we got majorly snubbed by the "event marketing" girls during last Sundays Pat's game & Sox game.

Yeah, that was it, Sandra Bullock. I thought Rob Schneider carried the movie, personally.
