It's great how most of its about Ted but they have that glowing green bottle at the top.

I'm disheartened to learn that in spite of being a hard core connoisseur, I'll never know how to become a hard hard core connoisseur.

"So, $75 euros a bottle doesn't sound so bad when you get to keep your ears, now, does it? "

We already know what Jack has to say about that one.

Yes, quite frankly I was also completely unaware that there was a rank above "hard-core connoisseur".
Clearly we need a new designation for this rarified level.

I'm thinking "bukkake connoisseur".

I'm not sure. I'm still only at the "hard-core" level myself.

My thought is just that interviews can mis-represent things you say in the most creative of ways.

Of course. And if you don't paint the scene with the brightest of primary colours, the interview will be sub-edited to death. Ted's doing what any intelligent businessman should do in a press interview.

BTW, it was Ogden Nash, not Willie Wonka.

More importantly, is he really 39?

Actually there is. It's called manufacturer.

I'm surprised they didn't use a jade pic for the article. I wonder if Ted offered photo stock for the article, or they just liked the shock value of the glowing green shit.

At least they didn't show a flaming shot.

So how many posts do you need to make for that title?
