Weird announcement to have to make ... but, I just got word that a certain vodka company didn't like the name "ABSOLUTExclusive" and so we're going to have to change it. Seriously. I think it's hilariously stupid, but ... not my call. I spent a few seconds debating if we should just go with something like "GREYGOOSExclusives" or maybe go with a whiskey brand? Since it's obviously alcohol related. Maybe all go buy these shirts in protest? In the end I talked to staff and we decided to just call the section "exclusives." So, we'll be making those changes shortly where we can and I'll be buying my vodka from companies that don't have more money and lawyers than common sense.
