Some of us are just more discerning, whether it is food or drink. Quality counts, crap is for everyone else.


Drink it or sink it.

I sinked most of a bottle of inferior Rye last week (that Pepper 1776). I tried it, I poured it out and I want and goat a bottle of Bulleit.

That column spent much ink mocking people and products the author looks down on. How snobbish of him.

Sippin' on a 2013 Goose Island Bourbon County Stout right now.

How awful to be a beer snob.


Oh, wait, Goose Island is owned by Anheuser Busch, never mind.

It's a good think folks don't get all worked up like that about absinthe.

Do they?

Nah…



Not here, anyway. Thank goodness.

I wish I could afford to sink my disappointing purchases.

Regardless, I read the article. Then followed a link to Elizabeth Gunnison Dunn's article on why tipping should be outlawed, which I enjoyed quite a bit more.

Once you've purchased the bottle the economics of whether you can afford it is done and dusted. Whether you want to go ahead and abuse yourself with something which you subsequently discover is not to your liking is a completely different issue. Cool, fresh water will see you through until you can afford another bottle. Personal choice is a burdensome responsibility. But someone needs to see to it.

I agree about tipping though. A living wage for honest work. Period.

As Tibro stated, the money's spent. I can't afford it either but life's too short to drink shit.

That Esquire writer was awfully familiar with a lot of details, so unless he watched those people as a scientist, like that woman who spent time among the apes, he's right in it with them. If you snub those people, you're still a snob; I think he knows this full well and the whole thing was tongue in cheek.

Looks worse when you put that flower next to it.

Sort of like that extremely short lived old avatar of yours that I may have been the only one quick enough to have espied.

Some would call that sleeping in the bed you've made for yourself.
