Just got back from excellent burritos and this still looks delicious. I'm sure you enjoyed the heck out of them?

Absolutely! I enjoyed em very much! I even grilled them perfectly, which wasn’t quite that easy since I had hot dogs and hamburgers on it as well, and these were some of the thickest fillets I have eaten!

Schlitz:  I've not seen any of that on the shelf for years, or even heard of anybody drinking it.  Back in the day (mid-1970s) , smaller breweries were bemoaning the "Augie & Joe" duopoly, referring to August Busch and Joseph Schlitz, with warnings of doom that their giant national brewing operations with regional "factories" enjoying economies of sale and national advertising would drive all other breweries out of business.  How times have changed since then.

For years, Schlitz was "The beer that made Milwaukee famous" (advertising slogan recited in every Schlitz ad).  Then, it became the beer that made cougars infamous.  (One of the greatest ad campaign disasters in history:  a guy with a pet full-grown cougar looked into the camera and snarled, "Take away my gusto?" then looked at the cougar and, nodding toward the camera, said, "meet your lunch."  The campaign became known as the "Drink my beer or I'll kill you" campaign, and made Schlitz (and its devoted customers) into laughing-stock; and Schitz sales dropped 50% almost overnight.)

That's a good post.

Thanks for posting that. That's the first I ever saw it. Not surprising since I was out of country for a few years at that time.

You might notice that the title of the commercial is "Wilderness Man," and he is out in the woods with a cougar, and he is holding in his hand a nearly full, icy, glass beer stein full of sudsy lager.  Who poured that for him?
