First of all, let's just make things known that it's a proven fact* that Guinness drank outside of Ireland just isn't the same.
Agreed? Agreed. Which is why when we spotted a photo of Guinness cans for sale in Japan by Reddit user mlargh with the caption 'WTF Japan', we thought they we just giving out for Japan selling cans of Guinness. Fair.
But then we realised something was amiss...
*My tastebuds prove this
All seems fine at first glance... Just some nice tasty Guinness, right?
But then you notice something's not quite right. Is that... Is that really a BRITISH flag?
It sure is.
Commenters on Reddit are getting pretty worked up about whether or not the Japanese store is correct to label Guinness as a British drink.
Some people are of the opinion that since Guinness is historically Irish, and so should be represented with an Irish flag.
Whereas others are saying that because Guinness is owned by Diageo, a UK company, it's perfectly right that there's a British flag beside the cans
Hmm. What do you think?
