Ah, but reptilian bladders; now that's the stuff of prestige.

Have you ever tried "3 snake gall-bladder wine"? I have. It's enough to make you look forward to a "Blue Ribbon"!

All of you people putting quotes around Blue Ribbon have clearly never had a $2 PBR at Bigfoot in Silver Lake, CA.

Ah how about the beer known as "The Beast?"

"8 ball"

"Mickey's Double Deuce"


And by the way since food could fit in this category

What is a "tatered num num?"

No indeed I haven't ... but I put quotes around "Blue Ribbon" 'cos I can get something that purports to be that in supermarkets here in Xiamen, and I am willing to bet that it bears about as much similarity to real, original Blue Ribbon as the LandLakes Medium "Cheddar" sold by Carrefour here bears to real (e.g. Montgomery's or Keane's) Cheddar ... which is virtually none.

I'll just stick to pink gin ... made with vodka.

Well, not quite.

I'll also go for more than my faire share of Metaxa 5 star brandy (the 7 star is okay too but a touch smooth). A bit fruity, excellent with good coffee (but for heaven's sake, don't put it IN the coffee -- you'll lose some of the alcohol). It's Greek, by the way, and the Greeks will tell you bitterly how the French nicked the recipe fir brandy from them. :mrgreen:

Unwooded chardonnay served me well in the now departed heat of summer. Like the adult's raspberry cordial.

Cheers, Geoff
