Four Loko, the absinthe of our generation?

Original Four Loko inspired art by Ben Houston.

Just as Four Loko hysteria is reaching a manic frenzy, the news comes that the FDA is banning the sale of caffeinated alcoholic beverages. Is Four Loko our absinthe? From Thought Catalog:
Four Loko has also inspired several artists. Decades from now, art historians will likely draw parallels between Four Loko and absinthe. They might even call Four Loko “the absinthe of America” and maybe professors will ask their students to write essays comparing and contrasting Picasso’s early, absinthe inspired paintings with the work of Gwop Gang Muzik and Snack Theater.

Maybe we should stock up, or at least try some before it's gone from store shelves.
