The third Thursday of November was yesterday, which means that the Beaujolais Nouveau arrived, and oenophiles from all area codes were really pleased.
Meanwhile, there is one very particular population that must be besides themselves with joy. To illustrate:
Yes, that’s right: Hello Kitty Beaujolais! It’s only available in Japan, and comes in plastic bottles. We’re not sure what to make of this, really. On the one hand, there’s probably a pretty huge market for this. On the other, the “market” in question is probably roughly 10 years old.
The bottle also has a little feel-good message on the side: “Let people all over the world drink delicious wine and live their days in happiness.” Truth be told, this just makes us want to go on eBay to try to scare up a bottle. Imagine rolling up into Cochon or Pumpkin with one of these babies! In a word: ballin’.
