Are We Not Men?*

Because life's apparently just too short to have to actively combine one's alcohol with one's nitrous oxide, one welcomes word of Whipped Lightning, "the world's first deliciously-daring whipped cream." It's alcohol-fortified-whipped-cream-in-a-can, properly known as "whipahol," available in 4 flavors (Amaretto, Cinnamon, Orange, and Macadamia).

Personally, I prefer my cocktails made either out of whiskey and ice or by Jim Meehan, so I may well not be the appropriate market for this. The delightful Ezra Poundcake has some choice words on the subject, as do her commenters. Anyone care to weigh in?
