• Who woulda thunk it? Apparently, references to the Jonestown Massacre, where 900 cult members died in a mass suicide/murder in 1978 after drinking a cyanide-laced punch, is not amusing – nor appropriately edgy – fodder to trump up the finer aspects of the qualities of a restaurant in Indiana. Hacienda has pulled the ads, which read, “We’re like a cult with better Kool-Aid,” over a glass containing a mixed drink, as well as the phrase “To die for!” after several complaints. Mmm…Kool-Aid. Yummy. [Yahoo!]
