Product + Placement = Perfection

(Ed. Note: I know that the Olympics are over, but apparently Molson has placed several of these machines in various destinations around Europe this past summer.  Here’s hoping that they will continue this awesome promo in different locales for years to come.)  

What Molson Canadian has done for Team Canada in Sochi this year is nothing short of brilliant.  Team Canada, you have done Bob and Doug Mackenzie, as well as everyone else in the Great White North, proud.

Yes, you read that correctly.  Team Canada has a beer refrigerator, provided by Molson, that can only be opened with a Canadian passport.  No church key required, apparently.

Why I don’t roll (or blog) on Shabbos

Shabbos (or Shabbat, in modern Hebrew) is the Jewish Sabbath, which starts from Friday right before sundown, and carries through until about an hour after nightfall on Saturday evening.  During this time, traditional Jews refrain from certain activities classified as “labor” – in other words, it is a “day of rest”.  No iPhones, no laptop, no Twitter (unless you set it up to run in advance, which could be the subject of a whole other post).

So yes, I am, like Mr. Sobchak,  “shomer Shabbos” – and while there are 39 different types of work that are technically forbidden, I’ll let this mug tie it all together with Walter’s top 3:
