Wendy was acting rather bitchy towards JC, so Sloan used an apt description of her behavior in lieu of her name in asking who she was.

@Questioner,
Thanks for that explanation. No harm done, it seems. Sometimes when I read threads I do a superficial drive-by and miss this stuff. How deprived I am!

I believe you misspelled 'depraved'. Drunk Mr. Green

@izzythepush,
Makes me laugh to see Budweiser with fancy Euro-clothes. Especially after decades of seeing it littering backyards and highways. Of course I recently learned that Anheuser-Busch sold off Bud to Brits and now is owned by Brazilian-Belgian co called InBev.

@Ragman,
Budweiser is a Czech beer that has been brewed since the early 17th Century. The Americans stole the name, and would have grabbed the beer too were it not for Vaclav Havel. American budweiser has to be sold on the continent as bud, although, shamefully not in the UK, the name budweiser is reserved for the Czech brew.

They are two separate beers, they share a name, but nothing else. Czech beer is the best beer in the world btw.
My mouse is playing up, otherwise I would post a link, google budweiser budvar. In America the beer is called Czechvar.

@izzythepush,
"The Americans" did not steal the name. Adolphus Busch used the name when, with his father-in-law, he began brewing his lager in St. Louis, 135 years ago. I'd link the information for you, but if you mouse is playing up, you probably wouldn't be able to go look at it.

I love the way people in Europe are so quick to blame the entire population of a large nation for any little, minor quibble they have.

@Setanta,
Correct. The name was not 'stolen'.

Here's that link:

@Ragman,
Here, let's quote the information relevant to the claim:

Quote:
In 1891 Adolphus bought from Carl Conrad the trademark and name Budweiser.


Izzy's mouse might still be on the fritz.

@Setanta,
I'm very sorry for maligning an entire nation, for accusing you of stealing names. It doesn't alter the fact they're two seperate beers though.

Carl Conrad was a St. Louis wine merchant who just registered the name. He didn't buy the name from the legitimate owners.

@izzythepush,
Yes, certainly. And Busch was smart about it, too. The slogan for the Bohemian brewer had long been that it was "the beer of Kings." Busch used the slogan, "the King of beers." At the time he settled in St. Louis, southeast Missouri and southwest Illinois were heavily populated by German-speaking immigrants, who undoubtedly got the joke.

@izzythepush,
The point, however, was that no one "stole" anything.
