‘Al­co­holic Tide Pods’

Edmonton Sun - - NEWS -

That’s right: They’re al­co­holic Tide Pods.

Well, sort of.

but as hun­dreds of baf­fled com­menters on­line im­me­di­ately wanted to know: How do you “drink” them?

“surely this is a sick joke,” said Ju­lia Mac­far­lane, a for­eign af­fairs re­porter with abc News, ask­ing the scot­tish prime min­is­ter to in­ter­vene.
