Last Laugh

Remember when morons reportedly thought there was some sort of connection between the deadly coronavirus and the brand of light beer called Corona Extra?

Beer Run

Grupo Model, the company that makes Corona, said in a statement provided to CNN that it's standing by with a plan to "guarantee the supply of beer" if Mexico reconsiders its non-essential categorization.

And CNN also reported that Constellation Brands, which distributes Model's beverages in the United States, said during an earnings call that it has a backup supply and doesn't expect any shortages.
