The taste of Two Dogs is a bad joke

Duncan MacGillivray, the Australian who invented Two Dogs alcoholic lemonade, has come clean and explained how he chose the drink’s name. It is the punchline of a famous and rather coarse joke.

A little Native American boy asks the chief of his village: “Why is mummy called Little Running Stream?”

The chief replied: “Well, when your mummy was born, I looked out of the teepee, and the first thing I clapped eyes on was a little running stream, and that was what I called her.”

The boy then asked: “So why is daddy called Big White Cloud?”

The chief answered: “When your daddy was born, I looked out of the teepee and saw a big white cloud, so that was what I called him. Why do you ask, Two Dogs F***ing?”
