Sangaria sells faux alcohol beer (complete with foaming goodness) made specially for children.

The Black Vinegar Robot looks like the gender confused bastard child of Darth Vader and The Iron Giant. Wait, it gets weirder. The robot has been designed to serve Tamanoi (Japanese Vinegar) to guests, or more probably to orchestrate a battle in the nether regions of space.
Watch the exciting new Trailer for the Transformers Movie. The visuals and action scenes look really good, and I can’t wait to watch the movie. I just hope that the script measures up and will not be a disappointment like Superman Returns.
