Alcohol-Infused Whipped Cream Targets Four Loko-Deprived Young

That tinny, sad sound you hear is the sound of the bottom of the barrel being scraped by the manufacturers of Whipped Lightning, a booze-infused whipped cream that is now being targeted to college students mourning the loss of Four Loko.

It's got an 18 percent alcohol content, comes in numerous flavors, and is possibly the only alcoholic product that makes Jell-O shots look sophisticated by comparison. And it begs the question: Why not just consume actual alcohol, the old-fashioned kind that has been incapacitating folks for generations without the aid of dairy? Or just do a whippet, for chrissakes, and call it a day?
