This Week’s Sign of the Apocalypse: Four Loko. ‘Nuff Said

Sketch.

After discovering the latest omen of the world’s coming demise, the Clog encourages Berkeley students to put down their books and enjoy their short-lived time on Earth.

Call us old-fashioned or — if you really wanna go there — call us wussies [1], but we’re still kind of deeply frightened of Four Loko [2]. Believe us, we like a good beer (or four) but something about the name, combined with the fact that Four Loko is essentially a giant can of death elixir sketches us out. Just a tad.

None of this means that we necessarily support or disagree with Ramapo College [3] in New Jersey’s recent banning of the beverage, since, y’know, we’re mostly all adults here in college, and can make our own decisions [4], er, whatever.  But the stuff was reportedly involved in some of the 23 alcohol-related hospitalizations already this semester at Ramapo … so we don’t know.

We do know that humanity must not be in enough of a non-apocalyptic place to not put mass amounts of stimulants, depressants, sugar, carbonation, more sugar and gross artificial fruity after-taste in the same can. Know what we we’re saying?
