Popcorn will get these money grubbing pricks back. When I heard they where going to put out his 'Shine legally, my first thought was, Christ, they corporate pigs are going to whore out Popcorn's name to sell shitty wannabe hooch.
Looking at the website, http://www.popcornsuttonswhiskey.com/, it comes in at 93 proof. Just under the threshold, and with some of the news stories on the page it looks over run with Nashville country music industry hipster twatbags.
Yeah...I almost puked when I looked at the "Popcorn Sutton's" website. The man had his faults, was stubborn and unbending, but he lived true to his own ideals; finally becoming so despondent from constantly having to deal with other people's authority that he took his own life, rather than go to prison. And then here come the mass-marketing-minded ghouls, quite content to pick Popcorn's bones and trade off his name.
