File this one under "Hunh?" Pop megastar Justin Timberlake is releasing his own tequila. It's called 901, after the area code of his hometown, Memphis. OK. No big deal. But check out this detail from the People article:
In development for more than two years, the liquor will hit store shelves in early May in New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas and St. Louis.
One of these things is not like the other.

You can bet that Gut Check will be giving 901 a try. In the meantime, enjoy my favorite JT tune:
