Shocking image of toddler sipping a Bud Light at Cleveland Browns tailgate goes viral
mail online ^ | staff

Posted on 10/16/2013 8:07:22 PM PDT by Morgana

A shocking photograph of a toddler drinking from a can of Bud Light at a Cleveland Browns' tailgating party has gone viral after it was posted online.

The photo was posted on Webstagram by John Cogar, a personalization specialist at Party City who lives in North Olmsted, Ohio.

He posted the image on Monday along with the comment 'starting early these days!'

The timing suggests the photo might have been taken at a tailgate on Sunday when the Cleveland Browns visited the Detroit Lions and lost 31:17.

Tailgate parties are a football ritual, with supporters gathering at the stadium carpark before a game for social festivities typically involving a barbeque and drinking.

No, he is sipping something from a beer can, how does anyone know if its a beer.
Besides if it is beer, light beer, that will turn him off beer altogether.

I don’t see what is so “shocking” about this.

200 years ago, kids used to drink beer regularly. Drinking the water could have resulted in death.

For a long, long time, mothers have given kids beer to get them to fall asleep.

If there’s some huge scandal here, I’m not seeing it.

He’s going to need a lot more of that before he’s done.

What “shocking”?

I suppose your kid has never grabbed your beer?

The “shocking” thing is that there’s a job called “personalization specialist” and that someone actually gets paid to do whatever that is. As for the beer thing? Yawn.

Hey, that’s personalization specialist... at Party City. Must be a fancy term for a salesman, with a common mission to upsell the heck out of the wares. Par-tay!!

When I was in Germany, I was shocked to see a bunch of 10 year olds, who after playing soccer, were all drinking beer.

Then I got over it and realized it mattered not at all.

if the parent said,
“hey, a sip of beer will not kill him, kids in Europe drink wine as soon as they can walk, and i’m sick of the government dictating how I raise my kids”,
I could live with that. however, just knowing how inner city parents are, i’m assuming the father (if there is one, usually its an uncle or cousin), just doesn’t give a crap.

I used to get off of work sometimes in the morning (service calls in the middle of the night or whatever).

So, sometimes at 7am, I would fire up the grill with my toddler son hanging with me in the yard, and crack a few beers while the meat cooked. Waving to my neighbors as they headed off to work. Everyone once in awhile, one would stop buy for a steak sammich for the ride to the city.

My son, being my son, loved to crush the beer cans under foot. He also liked to emulate his dad, and put the empty beer cans up to his mouth before doing so. He also would walk around with my cigar butts in his mouth. And he would drive his pedal car down the sidewalk with a cigar butt hanging from his mouth, twin holsters on his hips, cap guns, cowboy hat, and cowboy boots... all in a diaper and nothing else, lol Getting laughs from the neighbors. He also played “gasp” ARMY!!!!! He and his friends running around shooting caps at each other, and they all would come and empty my ashtray of cigar butts, biting down hard on them, while they did their best to storm the beaches of my yard.

Now, in this day in age, I would probably be put in jail. But, I saw nothing wrong with it. The kid was just being a kid, hanging out with his pops. Cruisin the yard in his diaper, with an empty beer can and an unlit cigar butt in his mouth.

Moments I will cherish for ever. I have some photos of this routine, and I still am heartwarmed when we break out the photo albums.

I must be some sort of Ogre...

Exactly! When my boy was around two I had him and his sister a my place of employment on a Friday afternoon. He wanted my beer so I finished it, bought a coke and poured it in the empty bottle and gave it to him. Yes, pictures were taken and my boy was dubbed “Mini-Me”.

Budweiser should release a socially responsible ad condemning that behavior.
