Guinness for guernseys

Hefeweizen for the heifers: Brewers, farmers and lawmakers alike are concerned about the language in a proposed FDA rule that would require beer makers to dry spent grain, a by-product of brewing, that they give to farmers for free as cattle feed. Drying would add cost for them, the brewers say.

Dairy farmers say it would increase their costs, too, because they’d have to start buying beer for their cows to keep them contented.

Just sprinkle some more cheese on it: The makers of Dreamfields Pasta have agreed to settle a lawsuit and will pay $5 million to consumers who bought what it advertised as a low-carbohydrate alternative to traditional pasta. Studies found the claim was false.

Prior to the settlement, lawyers for the pasta maker argued that the low-carb claim wasn’t about the pasta but about the cardboard box it came in.

He’s just big-boned: Japanese moviegoers say they are unimpressed with the computer-generated Godzilla in the new movie set for release this weekend. The new Godzilla’s head is too small, his arms hang limply, and some have called him too fat.

Hurt by the criticism, a sullen Godzilla bought 40,000 pints of Ben &Jerry’s, sprinkled some crushed Tokyo over the top and shame ate the whole thing.
