This is Marilyn Manson’s new brand of absinthe, “Mansinthe.” I didn’t make up that name. It’s what it’s called. Mansinthe. Pretty clever– not. I don’t know what MM actually has to do with this product, except that it has his name all over it.
Marilyn Manson is so predictable. Of course he wants his name attached to absinthe. We get it, Marilyn. You’re dark. Good for you.
Anyway, Manson’s girlfriend, Evan Rachel Wood, recently tried the soon-to-be-legalized substance and this is what she had to say about it:
“For my birthday, I did one shot to try it, and that was it,” Wood said. “I was drunk immediately. Being who he is, Manson wanted to make it as strong as it could possibly be, so it’s got the highest amount of wormwood that you can have legally. One shot of it, and you’re out for the night. Three shots of it, you’re dead.”
Is it just me, or does Mansinthe sound totally awesome? Just kidding. (Just kidding about just kidding.) No, but seriously. Three shots of it and you’re dead? Mansinthe sounds strikingly similar to wheatgrass shots. I know they’re supposed to be healthy, but after three shots of w-grass, I assure you, you will want to die. Or be dead. Also, I wonder if Evan Rachel’s age has something to do with the effect Mansinthe has on her. Since she’s like, fourteen.
Whatever. In the end, I think it’s safe to make the assumption that I will most likely try this product once it’s available. Well, I might not, since I’m a wimp. But I’m sure someone I know will. I’ll let you know if it kills them.
