Holy hangovers, Batman! More than a few Cyberwar Superheroes will be laying low today, methinks, having lost a battle with the dread green kryptonite of Shamrock Shake Jamesons Shooters a mere few hours ago. The taste of regret is bittersweet…and a little bit metallic.

Peel yourselves out of whatever bunker you ended up staggering into last night. Locate, if you can, your clothing, and restore it to your person.  Bisect an orange with your machete and suck on that puppy like your life depended on it. Now toss back a 16 ouncer of wholesome, delicious java and get ready to face the future.
