Red Bull Being Blackmailed By Extortionists Threatening To Contaminate Cans With Feces

Energy drink and vodka mixer Red Bull has announced that it is being blackmailed by a person or group of people who have threatened to place cans of the sugary caffeine supplement contaminated with feces on store shelves. While the threats have been coming for several weeks, the Vienna-based company's checks of grocery store supplies have found no contaminated cans so far.

Facedrink, the Social Energy Drink

In what one would initially think is a joke, the energy drink you see to the left, unfortunately dubbed "Facedrink," seems to actually be real. It can still be a joke, sure, but it seems to be a purchasable, tangible item selling on Amazon for $18 for a six-pack.

So, regular energy. But Facebook-branded. I'm not entirely sure how it was allowed to make a product so closely resembling Facebook, but that is probably because Facebook hasn't caught up to it yet. Also, naming your possibly-real-possibly-not energy drink after something that sounds like a new subsection of fetish videos? Come on, man.

The Hopsicle Experience or simply Hopsicle, served by a Mexican saloon in New York called Diablo Royale Este, consists of a can of Tecate injected with simple syrup and lime juice, fitted with a wooden stick, and frozen for four days, whereupon the top is chopped off with a samurai sword and it is consumed with a popsicle stick. Sounds tasty.
