A well-regarded gastropub in the Rosebank neighborhood of Staten Island called the Phunky Elephant thought it’d be cute to take a cue from Family Guy and put a “Roofie Colada” on its drink menu. The name is obviously offensive, but so is the ingredient list: coffee ice cream, fried doughnuts, Kahlua, vanilla-flavored vodka, caramel, and chocolate syrup, all served in a pint glass. When a customer pointed out that it wasn’t great to feature a drink that touts an association with rape, the staff reportedly responded with nothing more than a laugh. Now, though, the Phunky Elephant is sorry, sort of.
“For the record, you know there aren’t any date rape drugs in the dessert right?” the restaurant wrote on Facebook, before posting a more detailed note explaining the “desert [sic] name was simply a homage to an adult cartoon and there was no malice.”After that, it turned to Seth MacFarlane to see if the Family Guy creator might be of any assistance.
Needless to say, if you’re seeking out MacFarlane’s help to make yourself look better, you messed up.
