marleymarley: she said pensively as she sipped her Samuel Adams Boston Lager. It’s a conspiracy, perpetrated on the American people by the hops cartel. They meet in semi-secret in the gardens behind Masonic Temples and plot how to convince craft brewers that what people really want in a beer is more hops. Hops, hops, and more hops.

Smart move, Macy's.
Very clever, using “Seasons of Love” for your Christmas ads. Much smarter than the first pass from the ad agency where you used “Everyone Has AIDS”.
