Wines and Guns!

God bless America. More specifically, the NRA. On the heels of everyone and their dog having a wine club (seriously, you think that sound from the backyard is him slurping on bones?), the association protecting our right to bear arms thinks a fusion of guns and alcohol is in order. Brilliant! Our country has one of the highest rates of alcoholism and homicide in the developed world. Let’s encourage irresponsible drinking and marry the two, feeding the beast a bit more. Can you just see the logo? A rifle crossed with a Burgundian bottle? Or perhaps balancing a cluster of grapes on its smoking tip? Does Heston spit? Would he lead tastings? Is he a Syrah man? Everyone knows that pepper and dark fruit go smashingly well with a 12-gauge shotgun. Post tasting group activities? We usually end up discussing restaurants or watching a movie. But the NRA Wine Club can head out for a round of shooting! Clink. Normally www.nrawineclub.com, the site’s currently down so I can’t link to it.
