☘ 058; [video]

I don't get it, why's everything gotta have a name for it?

[The slightly crooked video comes from a Pokegear carelessly dropped on what seems to be a bar. Lancer, in all his blinding Hawaiian shirted glory, was the one having spoken.]

Like this one here, what the hell's a 'Kirlia Royale'? Or a 'Seafoam Island Iced Tea'? '

You know there's no tea in a Seafoam Island Iced Tea, don't you? It's only called that because of its resemblance to nonalcoholic iced tea — you'd probably like it, if you can get past the name. Which isn't as bad as you're making it out to be, by the way.

I didn't say it was bad, I was about to say it's just stupid. You don't need dumb names for everything. [IN MY DAY WE DRANK UPHILL BOTH WAYS] Here, hang on a second-- [There was a sudden motion as the Pokegear was jostled in a quick flash of a brightly-colored shirt. Having apparently jumped the bar and waving off the poor bartender with a muttered 'it's fine, ain't like I'm not paying for it', he quickly set himself to mixing some unholy concoction in a glass, which he set in front of Carmen.]

[...Who wisely seemed just a little skeptical as to whether or not she should drink it.]


...Ah, it's a "tip and an apology" kind of night, I see.

[THAT'S CORRECT, CARMEN. Because Lancer is on a mission.] It's fine, ain't like we can't afford it. Look--I invented my own drink.

[That earned him a raised eyebrow, and rightfully so.]

And I get the honor of first taste? Color me flattered. All right, maestro, what do you call this masterpiece of yours?

Who cares what it's called, try it. [Dismissively, he proceeded to make a second one for himself.]

Oh, no, if I'm drinking it, then you're naming it — an equivalent exchange. Now, what do you call it?

Okay, fine. I call it, 'it's got booze in it, so drink it'.

[With that bit of infallible ye olde Irish logic, the video cut out.]

...Well, I suppose that's still a better name than the Arbok Poisonspit. Are you both still alive?

[That is a most important question.]
paladinlost: (thoughtful)

And here I was, thinking you'd put some effort into that drink. Does this mean it was less dangerous than it looked?

Please tell me you just made up "the Arbok Poisonspit" on the spot, and that's not a real drink.

The bartender in Violet assured me that the numbness of my tongue was a known effect, and that it would fade away after three hours. He was off by one.

[Why yes, he put something called the Arbok Poisonspit in his mouth. Willingly.]

... A valid one? I get that humans can be picky, but it's just a drink. They're all the same.

[Except milk. Milk is a foul disgusting drink and Lapis ain't going near it ever again because what the fuck humans leave the fluids of other animals out of this.]

[The person giggling sounds entirely too young to be listening to bar banter, but that's what you get when you make a public video. And also have the kind of good-natured bickering he'd grown accustomed to hearing while traveling with his friends.]

You can think of a better name than that... It'd be hard to say, "yes, hello, I'll have a 'it's got booze in it, so drink it', please!"
stonebones: (a curse or a blessing)

I don't know... I'd still feel bad for the bartender! Then they have to make all the decisions not knowing what you like. Or what if they're having a bad day and give you something that costs a lot of money?

[He laughs again at that before continuing with his upbeat tone:]

Plus, if the inventor doesn't really care what it is, why should anyone else? It doesn't matter that some people aren't picky if you don't bother to give them a real option.

[This merits presidential attention.]

What I never got is how come some things get a name and some don't. Like, say, how come when you put some Jack Granbulls in with some vermouth, it's a Manhattan, but when you put Jack in with Coke, it's just a Jack and Coke.

I believe the point of names is so that if you like a particular drink, you can more easily ask for more of the same.

*without, y'know, needing to describe its precise contents*

Probably when they realized that not only was it possible to get drunk, but to choose what kind of flavor you became drunk on, I imagine...
