Wonder if they'd give us a discount so we could "complete our set"

Hard eyeroll at the Cow.

A Cow is not available in Chicago which is why I referenced in regards to the faux MKE Bloody for the Chicago wannabes.

A sidecar is a cocktail.

The beer you get with your bloody is either called a chaser / beer chaser or a snit (if it comes in a glass).

Personal favorite beer chaser is the High Life pony.

I thought so too, but as it was explained to me, a Bloody is savored, not chased. A sidecar is an accoutrement.

That's some malarkey.

You take a drink of a spicy bloody and then you chase that drink with a sip of lager beer to cleanse / refresh the palate.
But I like to throw handfuls...

I chased my Bloody Mary with a beer ... after I was done with the Bloody Mary. That's how I roll!

A sidecar, I believe historically, is a balance of brandy with a lemon liqueur...maybe more as a digestive....which refers to a balance of sweet and acidic...similar to a bloody balancer in that slang usage of the term.

A chaser follows a shot or sip of hard liquor like a shot of whiskey where the definition comes from I believe.  Again a balancer.  I have also seen people pour the beer directly into the Bloody to balance the acid and spice in one sip. I thought that was weird too but it’s not bad when the Bloody is overbalanced.

I can see the history and application of either term.  That said, I am now using snit...although I had always thought it was a chaser too. Only in MKE do we get into such discussions of bar terms.

Ok .. I think it's time to show my boys a Halloween/horror type movie.

Halloween?
Nightmare on Elm Street?
Poltergeist?
Exorcist?
Scream?
Child's Play (Chucky)?

Admittedly, I haven't watched any of those movies in 30 years.  I fear they haven't "aged" well.

I would put Nightmare on Elm Street right up there with Exorcist and probably scarier to kids since it is about kids (plus it has Johnny Depp in his 1st flick)

Halloween. I watch it every year and think it holds up just fine.

IMO, Exorcist and Halloween are too much for kids of that age.

The first time I saw The Exorcist, it was the heavily edited network television version and I was in high school. I still had nightmares.

I had just turned 13 when The Exorcist came out. My older brother and I went to see it, and several people left the theater during the movie. Couldn't take it. I talked about how cool it was, but I did have nightmares for several nights.

I do think kids now are generally less bothered by some of this stuff. They play gory, violent video games, watch incredibly gruesome shows like Stranger Things and The Walking Dead, etc.

If I had an 11-year-old who didn't watch any of the above and sometimes has nightmares, no way would I let him see The Exorcist. But if viewing gore, blood and "mature themes" already was normal to him, he might actually think The Exorcist was tame. Or funny.

They've seen Ghostbusters.

Honestly .. over the years, there's been zero movies that .. impacted the kids.  They don't get over-excited like watching an Avengers movie might do .. they don't get scared either.   Aliens, Terminator 2 .. no impact.

I'm not sure they could be scared of a movie, like .. they know it's just a movie.  Which is sad.

Don't let anyone tell you the Arby's gene skips a generation.

So yeah, I wanna peg the needle for scientific reasons.

You're going to have to go nuclear then and show them a replay of the Murray St. game.

My kids were in a home daycare where one of the other kids was a 3- or 4-year-old whose siblings were all teenagers who thought it was funny to play R-rated horror movies on the VCR and let their little brother watch with them.  The babysitter said he would draw pictures of a bloody person with an ax buried in his skull and big knives plunged all over his body.  When the sitter asked about the picture, the kid said, "That's my dad."

The ultimate horror show: A highlight reel of Austin Croshere, Larry Hughes, Jean Felix, Quincy Pondexter, Brook Lopez and Reece Gaines.

If that doesn't give them nightmares, they should be banned from MU games for life.

Can I ask why?

In all honesty, what is with people and the sadistic pleasure they take in deliberately scaring their children around Halloween?



But to the question, the answer is Gremlins.  Although that's more of a Christmas movie.
Wow, I'm very concerned for Benny.  Being able to mimic Myron Medcalf's writing so closely implies an oncoming case of dementia.
