She put the car in reverse, I hopped out & grabbed the poster. It was in such great shape I forgot how long its been since Spud had graced our television screens. After the poster & i got back into the car. Val took off like we stole it. Because, lets face it, its more fun that way.

Well this got me thinking about Spuds. I was seven when Spuds hit the small screen and I've never been fan of bud (i like good beer). I didn't know much about the dog, the myth, the legend. So turned to google to find out. What I found was surprising. Spuds was a he played by a she.
She had the greatest name ever. Honey Tree Evil Eye, born on October 7, 1983.
What was Budweiser thinking? All those pictures of Spuds with the ladies, at parties in boy dog clothes!! Imagine how adorable it could have been if Spuds was a girl. The Barbie dog of beer. Were they afraid men would take this to mean Bud was a "girl beer"? Probably, if you make a beer that tastes like water you can't have much common sense.

Honey Tree Evil Eye died on May 31, 1993. This year on the anniversary of her death, N.V. shall unveil a poster to commemorate Honey Tree Evil Eye. Not that we don't love the character of Spuds Mackenzie. But Spuds gets all the spotlight. He has been mentioned in songs, comics, and cartoons. People looking for english bull terriers google "the Spuds Mackenzie dog" Honey Tree did her job & she did it well. What if Gypsy Rose Lee was known as "that girl who danced"? No, Honey Tree Evil Eye deserves her day in the sun. After all, she got people to drink Bud.
|Whats the difference between bud & having sex in a canoe? Beats me, they're both fucking close to water.|
