Link to da funny

Bored again on the webz, I was looking at Shorpy, which led to me going on a search engine for cheap wines. I came to this little gem called Bum Wine dot com.

My first wander about concerned some of the more popular wines like Night Train and Thunderbird. But what caught my eye was a description for a wine called Cisco. Here is a small excerpt;

"...The FTC also forced them to drop their marketing slogan, "Takes You by Surprise," even though it was entirely accurate.  Read the FTC's full investigation on their own web page at this link.  Since those days, Cisco is harder to find outside the slums, although the FTC's demonizing of the drink only bolstered its reputation for getting people trashed.  Anyone who overlooks the warning and confuses this with a casual wine cooler is going to get more than they bargained for.  Cisco will make a new man out of you.  And he wants some too."


I do remember the days of the koolaid flavored wines. Yechh. Except for Tickle Pink... the chix did dig dem some Tickle Pink!

I was never a big fan of the Kool-Aid wines, but I sure did drink a bunch o' cheap-ass jug wines back in the day.

The sweet cheap wines are not really nice. I think of them as training wines for youth or the last chance to catch a buzz for the homeless.
