For those of you following the Flying Dog Raging Bitch controversy, here’s the Canadian equivalent. According to the Globe and Mail:
“The beer, made by Flying Monkeys Craft Brewery of Barrier, Ont., was deemed potentially upsetting in light of Canada’s military missions in Libya and Afghanistan. Then there was the uncomfortable association of “smashed” and “bombed” with getting tanked in the civilian sense.”
I have no idea what Canada’s freedom of speech laws are, please fill me in. Also…does “getting tanked in the civilian sense” mean getting wasted (I’m certainly going to start employing that phrase, regardless)? Or…does this literally mean….getting run over by a tank… or something?
