BRITISH owned alcoholic beverages company Diageo has launched a brand new product to target the fitness market, simply called ‘Guinness Sport’.

The double strength stout will be the brand’s eighth recipe attempt with the well known Irish draft beer, and it is expected to be rolled out in the coming weeks on a ‘pilot run’.

After investing almost €2.4mn into a scientific study to monitor the effects of alcohol on athletes performances, they found there was a considerable increase in stamina and endurance, proving the age old theory that Guinness is indeed good for you.

“Sunday footballers swear by it,” said CEO Ivan Menezes. “Not only does it take the sting out of physical exercise, it also puts the fun back into whatever sport you’re playing. It’s isotonic, so it gets to your bloodstream – fast.”

However, health experts have slammed the company’s decision to market an alcoholic beverage as a fitness aid, claiming it could just add to an ever increasing binge drinking problem in both Ireland and the UK.

“Seriously, have they lost the fucking plot?” asked one spoilsport, who probably drinks tea all the time or something. “Alcohol and sport do not mix well. Look at George Best and Paul McGrath. It may help them play longer, but it will surely have detrimental effects on their long-term health”.

The new 8.2% stout is set to go on sale in all good health stores from next month.

Bottoms up.

ONE MORE THING: Like what WWN does and think Satire (known in Ireland as 'taking the piss') is worth supporting as we face the threat of legal action, the permanently offended and 'Big Tech'?

We're not arrogant enough to think we make the world a better place (that's the job of megalomaniacal dictators) but a small contribution of €5/$5 a month from readers can enable us to keep doing what we're doing, and what's more is we'll give exclusive bonus content and offers to our supporters.

WWN's least favourite phrase in the English language is 'they only love you when you're gone' so help keep us going if you can.
