This summer, Budweiser cans will have the word “America” on the front, lyrics to “This Land is Your Land” underneath, excerpts from “The Star Spangled Banner” and “America the Beautiful” all around, and the nation’s motto at the bottom.
But not the official “In God We Trust” motto; instead, they’re going with the original, unofficial, better one.
Say goodbye, at least temporarily, to “king of beers.” Say hello to “e pluribus unum.”
Will anyone care? Probably not.
Will people drink it? Not if they can help it.
Do people even know what “e pluribus unum” means? Hell, after drinking a few cans, you won’t even be able to pronounce it.
But allow me to help Christian groups with their inevitable pushback against this godless alcoholic blasphemy: Their beer’s watered down, and their motto is, too.
