How Arnold Palmer Awkwardly Ordered Arnold Palmer Drinks


Golfing legend Arnold Palmer died at 87 years old Sunday, leaving a void not only in the sports world, but the world as a whole. As we mourn one of the greatest athletes of all time, we also honor the legacy he left behind. Part of that legacy impacted the food world immensely, as the mixture of iced tea and lemonade will forever live in his namesake.

In an ESPN 30 for 30 documentary episode, the golfing legend talked about his lemonade-tea mixture, how it came about, and more interestingly, the weird feeling in having to order a drink named after himself.

It’s not a problem that regular folk like you and I have, but how did he place the order without it being awkward?

Palmer said in the docu-series:

“I was embarrassed to ask for an Arnold Palmer. ‘Can I have an iced tea, and put about a third of it in lemonade.’ They said, ‘Oh, you want an Arnold Palmer!'”

The best part about that story is the server not knowing who he was talking to.

It could have been worse. Palmer could have taken Michael Trostel’s suggestion, saying, “Excuse me. I’ll have a me.”

The whole video is pretty interesting, but peep him talking about his encounter at the 8 minute mark.


Molds To Make Eggs Shaped Like Golf, Tennis Or Soccer Balls


These are plastic molds that make your eggs shaped like a golf, tennis, or soccer ball. They were designed by Avichai Tadmor and now being sold over at Monkey Business for $12.

Basically you just boil an egg, peel it, pop it in the mold until it cools and presto! You’ve got an egg shaped like a ball. Not entirely sure why you’d want an egg shaped like a ball, but I’ve heard of crazier things. I can’t think of any now, but I’m certain I have.

Almost 1,000 Chickens Beaten to Death with Golf Club During Foster Farms Break-in


The Huffington Post reports that someone broke into a poultry plant near Fresno, Calif., early on Sept. 20 and clubbed almost 1,000 chickens to death with a golf club. Police say that the chicken assailant snuck into the chicken sheds at a Foster Farms site and killed 920 chickens before leaving the scene.

The estimated damage of the chicken carnage is $5,000. While this is considered to be a random act of violence, the Fresno County Sheriff’s Department is looking for leads to the chicken killer. Foster Farms has since issued a statement calling the incident an “unconscionable act of animal cruelty.”

Because a piece of the golf club was discovered at the scene of the incident, police suspect it was the weapon used in the assault; another weapon may have been used as well.

Men’s Button-Ups Designed for Opening Twist-Off Beers


So you’re at a party and your coordination’s a little . . . off. Your normally work-beaten hands are suddenly weak and clammy and no matter how much you scrunch your face, you just can’t . . . seem  . . . to open . . .  this damn . . . beer bottle. Normally you’d have to concede, ask someone else to open it, or pretend you didn’t even really want beer in the first place. But now, there’s a shirt for that.

The folks at bougie men’s clothing company Criquet have designed a whole line of shirts meant to get you through the toughest of times, with a reinforced shirt lining that prevents you from completely trashing the fabric of your button-up whilst twisting open beer bottles. Not typically newsworthy, except that they advertise it as being the perfect twist top-opener. Sure, we’d much prefer shirts with actual built-in bottle openers (perhaps built into the button lining, though whoever can work one into a clubbing dress would be a godsend), but at least Criquet’s hearts are in the right place.

Arnold Palmer Goes Alcoholic

Arizona Arnold Palmer Hard Ice Tea Lemonade

Ah, the Arnold Palmer. To be honest it’s my favorite golfer’s name turned iced beverage – definitely beats the Phil Michelson drink for left handers and Elin Nordegren’s favorite snow cone, Tiger’s Blood. The combination of tea and lemonade also might be one of the best teams, narrowly defeating Sonny and Cher but coming just short of ketchup and french fries (/pure science). And adding malt liquor to the equation? Even Better.

Hornell Brewing Company, parent company and distributor of Arizona Iced Teas announced that the new ‘Arnold Palmer Hard‘ will contain 5% alcohol by volume in 24-ounce cans. It is currently available in the following states: Arizona, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Michigan, Nevada, New Mexico, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania and will continue to roll out nationally.

What do you think FOODBEASTS? Will you pick up one of these 24-ounce cans? Will you continue to make your own with Seagrams Sweet Tea Vodka?

FOODBEAST PartnerThe likelihood of eventually seeking help at alcohol rehab centers is considerably lesser when drinking is done moderately and responsibly.
