Energy drink update!!!

Exclamation marks denote high energy

Energy drinks. Who knew they'd be such a source of extraordinary literature? To add to the growing swell of Peach Fanta - and let's not forget the fizzy milk vibrancy drink - there is a whole WORLD out there. Millions of them. I did not know this. Perhaps I am behind the times in energy drinks. It's because I'm so darn lethargic all the time.

First up, a devoted blog.

It has a list of no fewer than 46 energy drinks. And their names! Ammo Blu Razz, Cougar - Double Shot and Crakshot, to name a few. These are quite literally going to BLOW YOUR MIND.

Favourite quote, in a review of number 1: Before you slam this little bugger make sure you shake well, otherwise you are going to get some flavor crystals in your last gulp.

Clearly written after abundant consumption of Ammo Blu Razz.

Anyway, in conclusion. Thank you Farley Katz, for this in response.

Word of the week: Michellania


Each week The Staggers will pick a new word to describe our uncharted political and socioeconomic territory. 

After brash Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump paraded his family at the national convention, the word of the week is:

Michellania (n)

A speech made of words and phrases gathered from different sources, such as Michelle Obama speeches and Rick Astley lyrics.

Usage: 

"I listened hard, but all I heard was michellania."

"Can you really tell the difference between all this michellania?"

"This michellania - you couldn't make it up."
