Taxidermy and Beer Together in Horrifying Harmony

Brew Dog, a Scottish craft beer company, has created limited edition ales at super-strength (55% alcohol, more than the typical whiskey at 40%), contained in bottles with small animal carcasses, like stoats and squirrels, around them. Word has it the animals were not killed by the brewers, but found dead. The brewers say:
This 55% beer should be drank in small servings whilst exuding an endearing pseudo vigilance and reverence for Mr Stoat. This is to be enjoyed with a weather eye on the horizon for inflatable alcohol industry Nazis, judgemental washed up neo-prohibitionists or any grandiloquent, ostentatious foxes.
The video below may tell more of the story.

Quote of the Day: US Airways Passenger Donna Adamo

"I felt like they were crawling all over me because it only takes one maggot to upset your world. And as they're telling us to stay calm and seated, I see a maggot looking back at me and I'm thinking, 'These are anaerobic, flesh-eating larvae that the flight attendants don't have to sit with.'"
That's Donna Adamo, who saw maggots dropping from an overhead compartment above her on a US Airways flight from Atlanta to Charlotte.

According to the airline, the maggots came from another passenger's spoiled meat.
