Mead-evil witticism of the week

David Myers of Redstone Meadery sez:

"Mead is something that comes around like clockwork every 2,000 to 3,000 years," Myers said. "I saw the wave coming and decided to get on."
Slate evaluates the possibilities of such a wave, and is skeptical. Despite extensive and mostly pleasant interaction with the SCA, I've never really liked mead. Its ancient popularity, I think, came from the fact that really sweet foods were hard to come by. Now they aren't.

Thanks again to Dr. Nokes of Unlocked Wordhoard.
