|02:28 pm - Little things what amuse me|
The fact that Arizona Iced Tea has official Arnold Palmer-approved Arnold Palmer iced tea beverage (half iced tea, half lemonade) is very amusing to me. Apocryphally, Mr. Palmer created the drink (yeah, and Shirley Temple invented the ginger ale and grenadine) but it's a fact that he liked it so much, ordering it all the time at the 19th hole and other places, that it was unofficially named after him.
Now it's come full circle and I think he even trademarked the drink name.
I don't know why but this amuses me to no end.
--how could anyone believe even apocryphally that he created that idea? I'm pretty sure people have been drinking lemonade ice tea since the invention of the icebox, if not earlier. POPULAR MYTHOLOGY: BE MORE PLAUSIBLE. >:0
I also heard that Homer Simpson apocryphally created the Flamin' Moe.
(but yeah, iced tea with lemon is nothing new, innit? I shoulda taken credit for, in sixth grade, creating an orange juice/seltzer creation. Yeah!)
no kidding - I know there's a place (sunshine something or other) in Augusta, GA that serves it. Not the Arizona brand - but their own lemonadey iced tea goodness.
