Let's Get EFFEN Drunk.

At right is Effen Vodka, out of the Netherlands. In Dutch, "Effen" means smooth. I don't know if this particular vodka, the 1,056th new vodka brand rolled out in the last year, was named over there or over here. I don't really care. And, that's all I have to say about the naming of this product. Thank you.

What's good about this is the rubber grip on the bottle, which makes it a handy replacement for gatorade during my morning Jog.

This is the worst vodka ever. A friend of mine had a pile of this to give out free at one of her events (they sponsored!), and I bravely sipped some. It tastes like cough syrup, but with less cherry flavor. And extra rancidity.

I'm an effen whore.

Guarantee you wouldn't be able to distinguish it from any other vodka. (Hell, I can't). What I like about it is it's expensive. And remember kids: high price = high quality... Right?

Clever retort:

... catch Rosie O'Donnell naked in the guys locker room in the midst of a steamy shower, convince her that I'm Ellen, bend her over and then blow into and french her dripping, strangely mauve colored anus while she belts out a chorus from Seussical The Musical.

Hmm, I wonder if this tastes any better than my usual evening cocktail of Listerine on the rocks?
