We have seen many cases recently in the media of interspecies surrogate mothers (some of which are actually males taking on the role of the mother when humans feed the infant and the animal surrogate "mother" takes care of everything else).

I think that the "ties that bind us" as living things are greater than we realize/appreciate much of the time.
A valid point, screature. Paix, mon ami.

CBC interviewed one of the creators of this concept on Q. It's an interesting take on how to get eyeballs on content.

Aykroyd is a partner in the business, so no surprise as to his reaction there... but...

Nah. I think I will pass... do you know what that stuff costs?

The "buzz" is the same whether it is Absolute, Smirnoff, Grey Goose, Crystal Head... I mean it's Vodka!

Not exactly the tastiest of spirits.

But it is kind neat that someone took the time to make the skull look like a living person...

Someone looking for a job perhaps... or maybe just bored?

Got to agree with you there. Unless you are a finesse martini snob, buy the cheapest vodka you can find and enjoy mixing it with whatever you prefer. One thing I will say is that if you buy a Polish vodka, rather than Russian, you will get a milder (taste?) as it is made from grain and not potatoes. The truth is it will give you a much lessor hangover than potato vodka.
