Fizzy DSK drink shameful

Dominique Strauss-Kahn

Things are lurching from bad to worse in France with news that a fizzy drink with so-called aphrodisiac qualities has been launched under the initials of disgraced International Monetary Fund boss Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

And the brew – Drink Safran Kiwi (DSK of course) is about to hit French nightclubs and is blatantly pitched towards the “in-crowd nightclubbers’’ .   Its designer Stephane Briault reckons patrons will mix it with a hard drink.

Did anyone think upon the ethics of releasing such a product carrying such a name?  That the real DSK allegedly tried to rape a chamber maid in New York and got out of a gaol sentence by the skin of his teeth?  What shameful commercialism to capitalise on this alleged act and to add that the drink DSK could be an aid to sex.  There is much to admire in France’s romance culture, but this is surely shameful.
