No, but I have a strong image in my head of Steve Martin as a waiter in (I think) one of the earlier Muppet movies presenting one of the "finest wines of Idaho". "Would you like to smell the bottlecap?"

A local winery recently admitted that modern bottlecaps are better than corks but that no serious winemaker would dare try it until some French wineries did it. So it only makes sense for Idaho to make wine, too.

(Tempted to post photos of my various moose items from around the house, but I think we're already far enough off topic, and I don't know where my camera batteries are, anyway.)

Re: How much do you drink?

I'll probably regret posting this and will want to drink turpentine after the S**t storm starts. Something about Beaver Fever Girls Beer Bust.
But let me just say that this is at a much higher level than what our Cut-Throat foisted on us.

No matter how innocent a topic of a post, the thread always seems to digress into sex. Is this what happens in ER? I guess all roads lead to porn?

Re: How much do you drink?

I can explain this one. These ladies read the earlier thread about the importance of flossing for heart health. Yet the uniforms that they are required to wear by their employer don’t have a pocket where a girl could keep her packet of floss.

Realizing the paramount importance of gum health, these girls who epitomize the Sisterhood of modern women today are helping one another out with the only implements they have available.

Hey, I just noticed, I'm out of floss too!

Seems like a pretty good deal - $1 beaver shots. Can someone explain this? Also, there is free pool and parking. You could do a lot worse with your entertainment dollar. God I hope the women on this forum are understanding and forgiving. Bless them...

Dan, the club is referred to as "FI (squared)" in the ad. Is this the amount of cash you are required to have to frequent this establishment? 8)

You could probably kiss your FI good bye if you went here too often. Kind of place Lawrence from Office Space would go:

Peter Gibbons: What would you do if you had a million dollars?
Lawrence: I'll tell you what I'd do, man, two chicks at the same time, man.
Peter Gibbons: That's it? If you had a million dollars, you'd do two chicks at the same time?
Lawrence: Damn straight. I always wanted to do that, man. And I think if I had a million dollars I could hook that up, cause chicks dig a dude with money.
Peter Gibbons: Well, not all chicks.
Lawrence: Well the kind of chicks that'd double up on a dude like me do.
Peter Gibbons: Good point.

Re: How much do you drink?

I'm guessing that anyone reading this topic has one in hand.
I'm nursing a glass of that Round Hill that I pulled from my wine cellar.
I'm hoping that with your help we can move on well past the post of Miss Dairyland Wisconsin
On second view, nursing is not a good word choice in the same message that includes Miss Wisconsin..
