Are you 51 fifty?

Who the hell wants a sweet potato flavored drink, seriously.

EDIT: In less than a day since posting this, I have since learned, from a completely unrelated source no less, that sweet potato drinks are just a thing. Saw a picture of a Japanese one. Still sounds incredibly gross to me, but I guess there are indeed people that want them.

"To Taaka! A level 14 shaman."

I love that video. From Jeff's disgust to Ryan casually taking a sip, to Dave's joy... It's just good.

As someone who does not like the sweet potatoes, drinking a sweet potato drink sounds unpleasant.

I don't like sweet potatoes either, but whipped sweet potato casserole with a brown sugar pecan glaze and toasted marshmallows is a wonderful thing.

You did not live the madness. Sipping energy drinks like it's tea time? Why not hold your pinky aloft while you're at it? In the words of one Vincent Caravella: What are you doing?! You gotta shotgun the shit, son. Don't even let it touch your tongue. It needs to go from the can to your throat to your fucking soul!

Live the madness! 51 Fifty, motherfucker! TAKE IT TO THE EXTREME!!!!

And now I want to scour the earth looking for an energy drink for Jeff that has the sweet, refreshing flavors of Pear, Pineapple and Lima Bean.

Oh man, we actually have these in a weird dollar store. The weird part is I live in Southern New Hampshire. I kind of thought they were exclusive to that store, it turns out they're sold in both Reno, and Manchester, the Reno of NH.
