Ha ha ,well the guy is hardly a wine connoisseur so maybe you are right !

Just thinking about the amount of the fine -- 75 bucks won't even get you a motel for the night around here , I was at a couple of bike shops the other day KTM $102/hr ,Kawi $92/hr labour charge .That kind of puts it in perspective .

Strawberry Hill is from the Vineyards de Boone, along with Apple and a few other chioce grapes. They usually age their fine wines, such as these, for many minutes. Another trademark is this winery is it's use of convenient screw top bottle closures, insuring freshness.

When their wines are forcefully expelled from the human stomach onto a lawn, the grass does not die. As a young lad very interested in unusual chemistry, I performed some interesting tests.

I think we assumed you got the joke about the cheap wines. The drinks mentioned are ultra cheap liquors that are very popular in places like the skid rows of America, or college students who need to get drunk but can't afford enough to do the job.

Drinky poos

Canucks don't drink sherry [much]
At a friend's party the hostess was distracted as she was serving drinks ,when she returned a couple of "rustics" had poured themselves a sherry -half pint glasses full of Harveys Bristol Cream and ice !
Very unusual .
