Yep. And all sorts of "health food" restaurants opened with 1,000 calorie yogurt parfaits and avocado smoothies that had 10,000 grams of fat.
But, it was like, healthy fat right? [continues sucking down big gulp avocado smoothie]
And wine coolers...don't forget about the wine coolers. Sure, they had about 12 lbs. of sugar per bottle to disguise the battery acid-grade reject wine that was too acrid to use even for a Franzia box, but there was 0.02% real fruit juice so it was the drink of choice for the sporty junk bond broker.

Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

I feel like there's a sensible middle ground where Medulla is a cranky old man AND Millennials are kind of terrible.

Head off to CERN and see if you can find evidence that such a thing is more than just theoretical, you damned late Xer.

Really? All the millennials I know love both. This better not be another boring anti-IPA diversion.

You're ruining them by coming into them instead of leaving us old people alone to drink away years of failures.

I just saw a photo of a domestic tallboy served in a paper bag with orange slices and a dusting of Cajun seasoning on the "rim" for nine fucking dollars at a "dive" bar in Brooklyn and yeah, Millennials. Y'all are unfairly blamed for a lot of things, but this is on you.

Was avocado big in the 70s? That's interesting.
As a paint color, yes.

What's bothering you here is the young middle class.
