This Can Only End Badly…

Virgin America will be offering Le Tourment Vert absinthe for sale and consumption at 30,000 feet, starting in May.

Via Boing Boing:

Incidentally, Virgin America (which today started service to/from Orange County) is also expanding the number of craft in its fleet that offer in-flight WiFi. Absinthe + internet + idle time? Can’t wait to read the mile-high tweets that result.

Personally, I can’t wait for the airborne grousing from the absinthe nerd crew that Le Tourment Vert isn’t “real absinthe.”

    “I can’t wait for the airborne grousing from the absinthe nerd crew that Le Tourment Vert isn’t “real absinthe.””

    And I thought one of the rules of good blogging was not to antagonise your readers!

    I’m just waiting for Twilight Zone-esque gremlin sightings as a result.

    I really am a nerd, so I take no offense, Christopher.:) On the other hand, I have no clue what Todd is referring to in that link, though it appears as though he is calling us absintheurs “nasty”…

    Christopher, you may not have heard about it, but in the past few weeks there has been an ENORMOUS amount of backlash directed at LTV. The “owner” visited the Wormwood Society and couldn’t answer half the questions, and Alan and I (among others in the Absinthe Mafia…) got tons of heat from one of their reps on Twitter…

    The Absinthe Mafia? What is that please and what has it to do with the Wormwood Society?

    The “Absinthe Mafia” bit was pure sarcasm.:) Sorry, I should’ve been more clear that I wasn’t serious.

    I do not understand the sarcasm. Can you explain that for me? Who is Alan in “Alan and I” and who are “others”? Do they constitute some form of “fun” organisation? Can anyone join? Can you share the joke as I do not get it.
