The Nose Is #TeamCaptainBudweiser

May 13, 2016

Last Friday, "Captain America: Civil War" debuted in theaters. It is the inaugural film in 2016's summer movie season. It's also the third Captain America picture. And people are calling it The Avengers 2.5. It is the first movie in Phase Three of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, of which it is the thirteenth film. Some people are choosing sides, declaring allegiance to one "team" or another. Some people just want to know if Bucky got his plums.

I don't really understand a lot of that stuff I just typed, but I do know that The Nose has gone to see this "Civil War," and this hour, we report back from the front lines.

Meanwhile, in The Week in Questionable Advertising: Budweiser will temporarily rename its beer "America." And bare-chested billboard bros might maybe be your mom's nurse. Or something.
