FDA to ban Four Loko nationwide

Gawker has all the bad news (and a nice haiku) right here.

So what’s the plan? Hoard case after case? Start an underground Four Loko club? A medical Four Loko dispensary? What do we do?

    “After a slice of pizza and some water Ortiz said he felt ‘much better’”.

    Not the smartest follow-up to an anti-drinking campaign. I can hear everyone now: Drink all you want, puke, and get some pizza and water. You’ll be golden!”

    If they had let us keep our Sparks, this Four Loco drama could have been avoided. I am down to TWO cans of original Sparks! :(

  4. Guess this’ll peel all the ‘how dare you post a picture of someone doing something compromising!’ dingbats off the “Tubby Tagger” post.

    Never had a problem with it. A bit sweet but a nice alternative to redbull mix drinks. I think it can be reduced into a nice vinaigrette for salad as well. Once again American culture consigned to history. I’ll buy some for my cellar.

    So… now I have to combine caffeine and alcohol all by myself?

    Can anyone tell me how to do that?

    Jeepers, what year is it? In 1985, the kids in rural Austria would pour a Red Bull into a beer, do a shot of vodka, and chase it with the beer/Bull mix.

    1985. A quarter century ago.

    Are you people trying to do some sort of weird hipster retro thing here? PBR must be an homage to 1986′s Blue Velvet, I guess. Fuck — the eighties are still back.

    I hated the eighties.

      ur argument holds no ground..i almost had a seizure trying to read it.

      • ahsah says:

        Oh you must drink some four loko prior to reading his comment. Reading it minus the loko is the equivalent of watching a 3D movie without the glasses. Obviously.

    I had one of these last night, just one and I had to be hospitalized later. I threw up countless times, I blacked out, and have memory loss of a period of time… it was not fun. :(

  14. butterbean says:

    you could always get yerself some MateVeza, it’s 4LOCO for Mr Fancypants, and extremely legal.

  15. Nuru says:

    I’ve never tried this drink so I just don’t get it. How is this different from a redbull vodka?

  16. Codeh says:

    I don’t mind it being banned. Mostly because I wouldn’t miss it.

  17. Asrail says:
