It's Not Your Father's Thunderbird

Wal-Mart announced that it is going into the wine business, teaming up with Gallo Winery of Modesto, California, to produce an affordable ($6 to $8) bottle of *vino* for the masses. The principal red varietal will be a charming little number called Arkansas Beaujolais, made of muscatel and just a hint of wood alcohol, while white-wine lovers will enjoy Chardonnay Pea Ridge, with an aroma of the woolly muskrat competing fiercely for prominence with the underappreciated wild Ozark smudgepot grape.

St Genevieve's Texas Red....1.5L or STE GENEVIEVE CABERNET SAUVIGNON 1.5L for under 10 bucks.
Great with BBQ or fried pork rinds.

throw in some store-branded saltines and we could do communion there.

Your being too kind.

The wines that you were talking about
-would go for closer to $50 dollars a bottle.

The 7 to 8 dollar range would be flavored with
incestuous sweat and chewun teebakker speet.

(insert dueling banjos here)

Do we really want to know how sweat becomes "incestuous?"...no, actually, please don't tell me.

I'll take "How To Know When Your Business is Screwed" for $300, Alex

oh wait... does the portfolio include a box version?

HOW LOW CAN YOU GO? Come on. Close the DOOR to These silly ( insert Python line here) subplots. While I know Wal-Mart has no shame and Gallo is unashamedly capitalist enough to go along; must you Joe Bob?

Python humor ? I say, one does find British humor superior to American comedy.
The above wine story, rather made me think of 'Posh Nosh' humor.

It made me think of the movie "Sideways".
JACK Do not sabotage me. If you want to be a lightweight, that's your call. But do not sabotage me.
MILES Aye-aye, captain.
JACK And if they want to drink Merlot, we're drinking Merlot.
MILES If anyone orders Merlot, I'm leaving. I am not drinking any fucking Merlot!
