    And thus nuclear fusion wasn't discovered by an MIT nuclear scientist, but by a lonely man, in his basement with some infected hot sauce....

    I'm confused. You hadn't opened the hot sauce you bought a year ago yet? What were you waiting for the perfect burrito?

    I hate when I just accidentally stumble on a bottle of wax dipped, $15, barrel aged, waited in line 3 hours for hot sauce.

    Naw, didn't even wait a minute for the actual hot sauce. As for $15... Eh, won't be the first time I've let food go bad. Pretty sure won't be the last either.

    Too be fair those cigars are delicious. It doesnt taste like drinking a stout. But it had some extra stouty sweetness that is a nice change of pace.

    Is this the first DLD thread that you're following? It's usually 80 to a 100 pages long, with about 2 pages out of that with pertinent info. Rest is a shit-show.

    Just wait until we get to the 'how will/should the variants be distributed?' That will take up at least 40 pages.

    I'm almost certain that's from one of the comic books. Someone already debunked this on a Three Floyds Facebook group.

    These are my favorites, to add:

    - So I buy two tickets but I only get one allotment?
    - So I buy two tickets and I get two allotments buy my guest doesn't get any allotment?
    - What is a ticket holder? I am holding the tickets right now, but if my friend holds them later then do I not get an allotment?
    - So I can buy two tickets? Or my guest can buy two tickets also?
    - How many allotments do I get if I buy two tickets and bring a guest?
    - So I can bring a guest with my ticket and the second ticket holder can also bring a guest?
    - How do you read & comprehend English?

    That's definitely the artwork from the cover of the 5th issue of the comic book (which BTW is still not scheduled to ship until April 26th and I think it would be HILARIOUS if it didn't come out until after Dark Lord Day) but the Dark Lord Russian Imperial Stout logo is definitely not on the cover of the comic. Plus Zimmer design does 3 Floyds labels so I'm gonna say this is legit.

    WOW! Actual news!

    Group A gets first crack at the comic variants. Group E will most likely get the ones printed on rice toilet paper....

    Yeah, but those were just the base comic. These are the base comics aged for a year. At least triple the value, right?

    Oh snap! Telling us it wasn't a label, it was just a comic book. Nice try with the Comicon.
