Folks, I’ve had a really bad week.
So I’m going to take some advice from my dad, who always thinks it’s better to laugh then cry when things go bad. Every Friday my dad will email out “The Friday Funny”. Granted some of these chestnuts are usually pretty lame, but this week’s is a keeper.
So I now present to you…
Bob Allore’s Friday Funny:
Soon Wal-Mart customers in the US will be able to sample a new discount item — Wal-Mart’s own brand of wine. The world’s largest retail chain is teaming up with E & J Gallo Winery of Modesto, CA, to produce wines at an affordable price, in the $2-5 range. While wine connoisseurs may not be inclined to throw a bottle of Wal-Mart brand wine into their shopping carts, there is a market for cheap wine, said Kathy Micken, professor of marketing at Roger Williams University in Bristol, R.I. Comments Williams, “The right name is important.”
With that in mind, here are The Top 12 suggested names for Wal-Mart wine:
12. Chateau Traileur Parc
11. White Trashfindel
10. Big Red Gulp
9. Grape Expectations
8. Domaine Wal-Mart “Merde du Pays”
6. Chef Boyardeaux
5. Peanut Noir
4. Chateau des Moines
3. I Can’t Believe It’s Not Vinegar !
2. World Championship Riesling
And the number 1 name for Wal-Mart Wine…
1. Nasti Spumante
