The Simpsons: Brought to You by the Ümlaut (and Katy Perry?)

The best part about The SimpsonsThe Fight Before Christmas” holiday special wasn’t the Treehouse of Horror -style format. Nor Katy Perry outdoing her “shocking” Sesame Street appearance through an oral sex joke with a Muppet Mo. Nope, it was how the entire episode was brought to you by the Ümlaut. (Thanks, Brookelynn!)

Mërry Christmas!

Video: BrewDog’s Sink The Bismarck (41% ABV!!!)

Drama in the fight for the World’s Strongest Beer!

The video’s funny, for sure. But calling their German competitors “Sausage Munchers”? It’s a play right out of Monty C. Burns’ battle book. And I can’t wait to see what happens next

Monty Burns “Ooh, The Germans” from The Simpsons

Quick recap: Shortly after Scotland’s BrewDog announced the whopping 32% ABV Tactical Nuclear Penguin with this fun and drunk penguin-laden video, Germany’s Schorschbrau dropped a big “Nein! ” bomb with a crushing 40% brew. BrewDog‘s responded with an even funnier video for an even bigger beer, 41% ABV Sink The Bismark!. Patience, Schorschbrau. Climb the ladder.

Beer: Happy Birthday to the Beer Can!

75 years ago today, beer was first put into a can by Krueger Brewing of Newark (followed by the first major brewery to do so, Pabst).

To celebrate I’ll be poppin’ some serious cannage all week. Woo-hoo! Sadly, the Duff can above is only an energy drink. However, a nice Sharpied umlaut would instantly convert it to imported energy drink, Düff. Price change!

Funny how the can is coming back in popularity, thanks to brewers like Oskar Blues who started canning in 2003 and even SF’s 21st Amendment in 2008. Now it’s pretty easy to find craft beer in a can. It’s just expensive. A four pack of Maui Brewing Company Coconut Porter will set you back almost ten bones. Y’ouch. But so damn tasty.

Avery just announced they’ll start canning their beers this April.

Here’s more info on beer can history and design at Web Urbanist.
(Thanks for the heads up, Pissed Ramblings!)

The USPS is releasing Simpsons stamps on May 7. They’re even letting you vote on your favorite. No, not your favorite character you want to see made into a stamp. Your favorite of these five. “Woo. Hoo.” Go snooze around the USPS Simpsons site. And drop all hopes of licking a Duffman stamp and tasting sweet, beer-y glueness.

Movies: Variations on a Logo

I love it when studios/agencies take time to add little touches to the things that come standard. Here’s a humongous gallery of creative variations on opening logos (1947–Present).
