The question is, is it funny or not…
There is an online retailer called Perpetual Kid that has created a new product for babies that resemble a beer bottle. This baby bottle is called “Lil’ Lager Baby Bottle” that will begin selling in May for $11.99.
The company’s website clearly states that “no it’s not beer, it’s just a good old smooth and creamy baby formula served up in a BPA-free phthalate free plastic bottle with a food-grade silicone nipple.
Take nursing your bottle to a new level! Cheers! Lil’ Lager, you’re a trouble maker in the making!”

The director of the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, George F. Koob, had some criticism for the new racy product, he said that it sends out the wrong message regarding alcohol usage.
“While a baby probably would not make the association between the baby bottle and beer bottles, older children in the house might, so we would argue that this could be an indirect promotion of underage drinking,” Koob wrote to USA Today via e-mail.
Koob also stated that the NIAAA does “not support any direct or indirect promotion of underage drinking even in babies.”
Just any novelty product that is a smidge racy, everyone is going to have their own opinions the “Lil’ Lager Baby Bottle”.
What’s your opinion on it?
