He thinks a water bottle costs 25-45 dollars? Is that U.S. dollars?

A friend of mine uses a Hershey Syrup bottle for his water in the gym. He loves all of the looks people give him when he takes a huge swig.

The crazy part is that he’s a bit of an organic-food health nut and had to get the empty bottle from his sister.

Drinking?

Are we sure he’s not spitting into the bottle?

Update: Because, you know, chocolate spittle fetish.

I’ve been tempted to carry around a hip flask of chicken broth for this kind of gag.

“Hey ya wanna nip?”

sputters “WTF is this soup?!”

As weird as the optics are, even if it were chocolate is that worse than him eating a few chocolate bars during a legislative session? It’s all just chocolate.

i totally respect this. we need more visible people in government walking the talk of reusing and recycling. (and fwiw, i’d totally put whiskey in there)

Sure, you can get a plastic one for a couple bucks, but a bottle with a longer life and keeps cold more than a couple hours is $10-20, minimum.

I believe the expression You do you! fits this occasion.

I can’t be the only person to use some milk to wash out the last of the chocolate syrup, right?

Chocolate syrup is not chocolate.

Well, it’s “chocolatey tasting”, I’m sure there’s some cacao in it. There are a lot of different types of chocolate preparations, some better than others, how about “it’s all just candy”?

I agree it is weird, and if this was the worst/weirdest thing about him I would happily like to discuss it. HOWEVER…he’s part of the GOP…so given just that fact alone…fuck this bullshit, because I know he’s a sycophant asshole.
