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.
