Ah, The Delicious Taste Of Tentacle Rape

When the folks at Mnemosyne aren't busy running MMORPG Rubies Of Eventide, the busy themselves with other pursuits, such as developing the world's first beverage with the great taste of anime tentacle rape.

Tentacle Grape is a caffienated grape soda that Mnemosyne is targeting at gamers, cosplayers, and comic book fans. It is also perhaps the best name I've ever seen for a product you actually ingest. You can currently pre-order the soda (pre-ordering soda?) in six-packs for $15.99 plus shipping from the drink's website, with each order before January 5th eligible for free Tentacle Grape bumper stickers or condoms (soda pre-order bonuses?).

"Obviously I don't take the brand very seriously… we can't. The best I can do is develop products that I'd want to buy myself and frankly this is the right combination of ridiculous and delicious." Says brand creator, Dekker Dreyer.

I don't know about delicious yet, but they've hit ridiculous squarely on the head.
