Wine Madness

[Picture of wine shelves at supermarket]I WAS SURPRISED AT THE WINE SHELVES AT MY LOCAL SUPERMARKET RECENTLY.

There were wines priced at £3.99, £4.09, £4.49, £4.69 and £4.99. So, basically we can say between £4 and £5. Fair enough. But what caught my eye was the £13.19 price tag.

This stopped me in my tracks.

Further investigation showed that this wine was priced at 225 cl. The others would be the usual 70cl wine bottle. This means that this wine would be just £4.10 for a 70cl bottle.  I have to admit that I could see no 225 cl bottle or boxes, so this must be some computer madness.

I wonder that the person putting on this ticket did not stop and think.  Things are definitely getting worse!

“Wine”

GETTING WORSE  OFTEN POSTS ABOUT PUNCTUATION, ESPECIALLY IN PUBLIC NOTICES.

Happy New Year!

Seductive Wine

[Photo of Dr Loosen red wine]IN A LOCAL SUPERMARKET I CAME ACROSS THIS BOTTLE OF WINE AND THOUGHT I WOULD SHARE IT WITH YOU HERE.

It is called Dr Loosen. Simple as that.

I would imagine that some Lothario would buy this to seduce his Calista merely on the strength of the unusual name.  Perhaps it would loosen things up, or loosen her clothing!

The Price of Sectarian Wine

THIS IS NOT JUST WINE, THIS IS SECTARIAN WI[Picture of wine display at M&S]NE FROM MARKS AND SPENCER.

I noticed the prominent display of wine near the check-outs on Sauchiehall Street’s M&S.  Named “Vin de Pays du Gers”, this tipple would appeal to the Gers fans, and is competitively priced to compete with the more usual swally, Buckfast.

Things are, however, getting worse when M&S decide to price this wine at £16.90 for ten.

Free Wine?

Paul Rodgers replaced Freddie mercury as lead singer in Queen, and was once the frontman for Bad Co. and Free.

Who knew he had his own champagne (non vintage)? At nearly £26 it is a great pity it is so far from being “Free”!

Yes, things are getting worse when we can make such poor jokes!  Happy New Year!
