      You probably have your security settings very high, there definitely seems to be some active scripting on the page which can trigger false alerts, but I haven't gotten any messages.

      Don't worry, you are entirely sane.

            Or at least offer another offering that's distilled 9 times. Non creative marketing people

                Sure, I wouldn't mind spending some time with those girls.

                Oh wait, there was something for sale on that site?

                    It's only distilled 6 times, so I won't touch it. Ha!

                      I'm sure it will, yes.
                      The times I have ridiculed the gun and skull shaped bottle crap at the liquor store I have been informed by employees that they are huge sellers. People are morons. Marketing works.

                        I believe you, but those sorts of bottles have *never* sold well in the retail stores in which I've worked . . . then again, I've worked in retail stores primarily in the greater Los Angeles and San Francisco Bay areas so perhaps that might explain it . . . the only "gimmicky" bottles that sold well in my 40 years of experience were those 5.0L, really, really tall (like 36"), thin-necked bottles of Italian red . . .

                          Heh. The skull one isn't half bad. A tad overpriced but not in ridiculous territory, at least at my local. I like Tito's myself.

                            They have little tiny mini-skulls of vodka on the front counter at my local liquor store, and I have to admit, I was tempted to buy one, just because they were cute.

                              I would like an empty skull bottle for my daughter if anyone wants to send one to me ;)

                              Actually, I'd like to decant Campari into one and keep it on display in the kitchen. That would be pretty cool for Dia de los Muertos.

                                I did buy a couple of the clear vodka skulls a few years back for holiday gifts. They were adorable. Lol, E-Dan, I'd send you ours but the hubby is very attached to it. :)

                                I'm actually kinda irritated that they spelled 'recipes' wrong on the website. Twice. Maybe they asked the bimbos to spellcheck after the shoot?

                                  And they misspelled it differently each time - recipies, recepies.

                                I'm not sure if this is the same, however Crystal Head Vodka, in a "life size" glass skull bottle is actually Dan Akroyd's venture into the vodka industry. I've never personally had it, but I've heard good things about it.
