We did the usual bullshit. Old world-new world. Varietal. Identify the two cabernet sauvignons. Would we pay over a hundred dollars for a wine that is debatably better than a $40.00 bottle of wine?  The Shiraz and the Ducru came from a private collection and were offered to us at a very discounted price. See Eady does know people in high places. The only thing we did correctly was prove our ineptness...again! Rather than go through each wine and the results I thought a joke would be better received. That is if anyone is still reading at this point.

 

A blind guy sits down for dinner and says to the waiter, "I'm blind and can't read the menu. Bring me a dirty fork, I'll smell it, and order from there."  The waiter brings him a greasy fork, the blind guy smells it and says, "Ah, that brings back memories. I'll have the meatloaf and mash potatoes." The waiter is amazed and tells his wife, June, who is the chef and she cooks the meal.

 

The next day the blind guy comes in again and the waiter brings him another dirty fork.  The blind guy smells it and states, "Smells great. I'll take the macaroni and cheese with broccoli."

 

The waiter thinks the blind guy is bullshitting him, so when he comes in the next day he tells his wife, June, to rub the fork around her crotch. She does so, and the waiter takes the fork to the blind guy.  He smells the fork and exclaims, "Are you kidding me, I didn't know June worked her!"
