We may not have thunder buddies, but we do have thunder drinks.

Fans are wicked stoked because tonight finally premieres what people are calling, “the movie of the summer”, Ted 2.  The film’s crude humor is sure to have you gasping for air through laughter– but mostly make you wish you had an inappropriate bear companion as a best friend.

Just like little John, whose older self is played by Mark Wahlberg, many kids spend years hoping that one night their favorite stuffed pals will come to life. Finally, after years of imaginary friends and wishes not granted, it becomes time to let go of the dream for a thunder buddy and rely on something else– thunder drinks. Better yet, thunder drinks to drink with buddies.

Life can give you thunder sometimes, and its up to you to find a way to make it through the storms. From our knowledge, a strong cocktail usually does the trick. After a hard day at work, a break-up, or an argument with an annoying neighbor, remember, at the end of a week there is a cocktail and some friends capable of fending “God’s farts” away.

In honor of Ted and Ted 2 taking place in Boston, the home of thick accents, crazy sport fans, and reckless drivers, do it like the “mass-holes” do and sip on a Bostonian this weekend. This thunder drink will bring out the “Bahston” in you.

Remember, “When you hear the sound of thunder, don’t you get too scared.” — John and Ted
