    Want a Good Laugh? Read this TTB Brochure

    Want a good laugh? Read this TTB brochure, especially the part about "How TTB Protects the Public."

    I tend not to be as cynical (or worse) about the federal government as many people, but this is ridiculous. How many 'product integrity field investigations' do you think they conduct in a year? They can't even find mistakes on the COLA applications (potato whiskey anyone?). I hope we can get a couple of reps interested in this problem, because it's a disgrace.

    See also this thread.

    I noticed there isn't any contact information for consumer questions or to report abuse.

    So that's what they're calling "drinks after lunch" these days...


    (The pamphlet itself is ridiculous and looks like it was drawn up by an unpaid summer intern in 1993 -- cheap-looking clip art, unprofessional appearance, missing contact information, etc. I also notice their examples avoided the thorny thicket that is whiskey...)

    Why would there need to be when the TTB is so good at their jobs?...

    How about they pay us on commission when we find an error or violation on a product label? We could split the fine with the government, no cost to taxpayers.
