How do you get some free publicity for your product? Have Donald Trump tweet that he’s dropping it from all of his properties. The beneficiary of the positive publicity this time is The Glenfiddich Distillery after they named Michael Forbes as the recipient of their “Top Scot” at the 2012 Spirit of Scotland Awards.

Donald Trump tweets about Glenfiddich and Michael Forbes.

Farmer Michael Forbes was featured in the documentary “You’ve Been Trumped” about the Donalds bullying effort to build a golf resort on a formerly pristine section of Scottish coastline. In the film, Donald Trump refers to Michael Forbes as the “village idiot” for not backing down and selling his farm to Trump. Now, Mr. Forbes is the Top Scot and Glenfiddich has a new customer – me.

For the record, I’m not a single malt scotch drinker; my tastes are limited to the lower on-sale light beer shelf. But thanks to Mr. Trump’s seal of disapproval, the Glenfiddich single malt is impossible to resist and I’ going to take one for the team and buy a bottle.

Jubbling first wrote about Donald Trump’s Aberdeen golf course when he tried to block a wind farm project off the Scottish coast. His opposition to the off-shore wind turbines followed his usual tactic of threats and name calling. It makes it so easy, with the holidays approaching, to wish that Mr. Trump would be visited by 3 ghosts. [Grist]

Ttsongsul (Feces Wine): Reduce, Reuse, Recycle Gone Wrong.

Ttsongsul "Feces Wine"From RocketNews24:

“Ttsongsul, or ‘feces wine,’ is a Korean drink made by pouring soju, a distilled grain alcohol, into a pit filled with chicken, dog, or human feces, and leaving the mixture in the pit for three to four months until it ferments. It is then extracted from the pit and drank straight with the belief that it can cure illness and help in the aid of bone fractures.”
