I'm going nuts trying to figure out that this red dog cap means. Usually they are pretty straight forward, but this time I have no idea. The "KW" is problematic.

Click on the link below to see the picture of the bottle cap.

Fve stars, Mark, you solved it!

I didn't even see the seven. I would have never figures out that KW = knowing warning. These things have got more complicated since my college days, when we used to solve them off of Luck Lager bottle caps.

Ditto on the work front. My current project sucks swampwater, it is painful.

It is not "ate" otherwise they would just used an "8" instead of a "trademarked 8 ball". That "TM" must mean something as it does not add to the identification of the "8 ball" itself....

It is probably something really stupid. I am just too smart to figuire it out.

Hmmm...so the consensus is that Mark's answer is wrong...I thought that "knowing warning" was a stretch.

The one thing that "KW" can mean is "kilowatt", a unit of power. Does that help any of you genius puzzle solvers out there?

If the "TM" means it's a "Magic 8 Ball" and the "KW" is a unit of power, then it could mean that Red Dog has magic powers.

Or not.

My wild guess:
"Red dog over shadows 8-ball's power"

8-ball is the slang for "Olde English 800", another SAB/Miller product.

No idea why the trademark symboled the 8-ball.

On second thought, I think it is just
"Red dog overshadows magic 8-ball's power"

That makes more sense, and would explain the trademark.

Kilowat is Kw not KW, right Chumley?

Where do you folks get the "red" in red dog? Or is that dog the symbol for "red dog" beer so it is just assumed?

Is there a beer called "bulldog"?

If it were "HW" instead of "KW", I'd suggest it was "dog 8 homework". But it isn't an H, it's a K.

So what did he eat?

The (TM) is on the whole picture, I believe, not just the 8-ball, and it isn't actually part of the content. And not that it matters, but that 7 is actually a 1.

I like Walt's guess myself, i don't think these things are supposed to be overly complicated. At least, that's what I remember from my college days when I used to drink megaswill and solve these.

Which begs the question to be asked: Why are you drinking Red Dog, oh Drunkster?
I consulted my super-smart wife (she solves the dailey crossword puzzle in 3-5 minutes, as opposed to the 20-25 min the paper suggests as a solving time). She votes for Tom's second answer. Just leave it to Red Dog to turn a bottle cap rebus into an advertisement.

kilowatt is "kW"
not KW
not kw
not Kw

Proper names, such as Watt (after James Watt) are the only capitalized units in the International System of units, or SI, which stands for Systeme International. The French invented the kilogram and the meter so they got naming rights. I think mega (M) is the only exception.

edit: but I doubt the dude at Miller that dreams these up knows that

It's a fairly beer. It's fairly good and fairly cheap. I have an emergency twelve pack in my kegerator.

Yes, that one is good. The most sensible so far and this question has been posted on numberous forums and this one has produced the best answers. Tom's solution is good. I like it, but it seems too complicated. I'm gonna send miller an email and ask them. I'm sure they will not know either.

Look at the picture. The dog is 'behind the eight ball,' common idiom for 'in trouble.' I'm lost on the KW part, though.

That doesn't explain the "KW", BBB.

According to the International Standards Organization (ISO), "KW" means Kuwait.

I think we're getting close.

KW = Kuwait??? I always thought they unofficially abbreviated it "Q8".

Come on, guys, that's a pretty big stretch.

I figured it out (because I'm smart like that), and that ain't it. It has nothing to do with Kuwait.

I need to be drinking the beer to solve these, but cannot see myself drinking Red Dog. I think there was only 1 or 2 Lucky Lager caps we didn't solve in college - something to be damn proud of.

I seem to remember Falstaff having these bottle-cap riddles as well.

Ralph,
I was there for only 2 years before transfering to Rutgers. I was in Zeta II dorm from 1985 to 1987.

1979? Where you there when Gallagher was there? On campus life was something like a Zoo when I was there. I knew a lot of people that were in trouble for grades simply because they spent too much time at the pool and partying.

One of my buddy's son is going there next year and he says that the campus has really changed for the better.

ELK, I was also weaned on Coors, but drank Lucky Lager (along with lots of Bud) while at college in northern California (we used to make fun of one roomate who drank Anchor Porter back then).

But I think I saw the Falstaff caps for awhile back here in Colorado.

Just drove by USF this weekend on the way to Skippers. There's a lot more buildings and a lot lets lawn than I remember from the late 70's early 80's. Had a bunch of friends that went there then.
