We all love grog, right? That tasty drink based on rum, with some lemon juice, cinnamon, sugar, or whatever else you want to put in it. Of course, nobody in their right mind would drink the stuff you’d get when mixing up the Monkey Island recipe, as described by the important-looking pirates in The Secret of Monkey Island.

During his ‘investigation’ on Facebook, he came across an especially shocking recipe for an alcoholic drink that young people in Argentina drink these days. Called ‘Grog XD’ (note the failure to recognize the smiley on the reporter’s part), it’s basically the Monkey Island grog mixture, with a few ingredients removed. The joke was lost on the ‘journalist’, as you can see:
