Make mine a Grey Goose

Are you kidding me? How stupid can the advertising people behind the scenes at Absolute vodka be? They just ran (and promptly pulled) an ad that stated "In An Absolut World" half the U.S. would be controlled by Mexico, as depicted by an 1830s map (where most of the modern western section of the U.S. was still part of Mexico).

Idiots. I smell a major boycott. I'm not one who usually gets my feathers ruffled about such things (edited to add that my husband just informed me that I am the queen of ruffled feathers; however, that's neither here nor there ...), but come on.

I do believe I'll refrain from drinking any Absolut from now on ... shaken, not stirred.
