Offbeat: Jones Soda subjects Tofurky soda on the Thanksgiving world

  • While many think that eating turkey is the only way to celebrate Thanksgiving, we at Jones Soda suggest that this year you try something new and toast the noble bird with a cold bottle of Tofurky & Gravy.
  • Jones Soda President and CEO Joth Ricci • Describing his company’s new “Tofurky & Gravy” seasonal soda. This company, famously, has sold holiday packs for a number of years, finding excuses to subject the public to wildly awful flavors of soda, but the idea of a Tofurky one takes the cake. Proceeds from the $11.99 holiday pack, which also includes three normal flavors (a change from prior years, when the other flavors were often as disgusting as the turkey), will go to PAWS, an animal charity. • source

Culture, Music: Go Karma! Billy Bob Thornton learns not to piss off Canadians

  • All mashed potatoes, no gravy Thornton managed to tick off an entire country of disengaged music fans with an interview last week. Thornton, whose rep as an actor makes his music instantly suspect, got angry with a CBC interviewer after he mentioned Thornton’s acting career. Later in the interview, he said Canadian audiences “just sort of sit there” and compared them to mashed potatoes sans gravy.
  • Karma’s a strange mistress The comments, particularly the ones about fans, made his Thursday show in Toronto very tense, with audience members loudly booing his band, The Boxmasters. During the set, fans shouted, “Here comes the gravy!” Strangely enough, most of Thornton’s band came down with the flu and couldn’t play the rest of their Canadian dates in Montreal or London, Ont. Hmm. source
