I almost forgot about this!

A few months ago, the New York Times wrote an article on the rise of absinthe as alcohol of choice for young, hip people.

This excerpt from the piece just had me dying of laughter:

"If absinthe were a band, it would be Interpol, third-hand piffle masquerading as transgressive pop culture. If absinthe were sneakers, it would be a pair of laceless Chuck Taylors designed by John Varvatos for Converse. If it were facial hair, it would be the soul patch. If absinthe were a finish on kitchen and bath fixtures, it would be brushed nickel."

How very droll!
