    What sound does a grape make when an elephant steps on it?

    A: None. It just lets out a little wine.

  2. Craig Cooper says:

    Did you hear about the new blend of pinot blanc, pinot noir, and pinot grigio that acts as a diuretic? It’s called pinot more

  3. Craig Cooper says:

    On his first date with a beautiful woman, Joe decided to impress her with his knowledge of wine. He told the wine steward to bring a bottle of 1980 Penfolds Grange

    Upon tasting the wine, Joe berated the steward, “No, no, this is not a 1980 Penfolds Grange..this is a 1990 cab sav from the limestone coast! Please bring me what I ordered.”

    Watching the drama from the bar, an old drunk came up to the table and said, “Wow, that’s an impressive ability. Can you tell me what’s in my glass?”

    Not wanting to pass up an opportunity to impress his date, Joe sipped at the drunk’s glass.

    “Christ, this tastes like piss!” he exclaimed and spat the mouthful out.

    “That’s exactly right,” said the drunk. “Now tell me when and where I was born

    Men are like a fine wine. They start out as grapes. It’s our job to stomp them, and then keep them in the dark until they mature. And hopefully they’ll turn out to be something we would like to have dinner with.

    A dinner party of different nationalities had arrived at a restaurant. They each ordered a glass of wine, but when the wine arrived they noticed that each of the glasses had a fly in it.

    * The Swede demanded to have new wine in the same glass.

    * The Englishman demanded to have new wine in a new glass.

    * The Finn picked the fly out of the wine and drank the wine.

    * The Russian drank the wine, fly and all.

    * The Chinese ate the fly but left the wine.

    * The Jew caught the fly and sold it to the Chinese.

    * The Roman drank two thirds of the wine and then demanded to have new wine.

    * The Norwegian took the fly and went off to fish for cod.

    * The Irishman ground the fly and mixed it in the wine, which he then donated to the Englishman.

    * The American sued the restaurant and claimed for a 65 million dollar compensation for mental suffering.

    * The Scotsman grabbed the fly by the throat and roared: ‘Now spit out all that you swallowed!!’

  6. Mel says:

    An Irish priest is driving down to New York and gets stopped for speeding in Connecticut. The state trooper smells alcohol on the priest’s breath and then sees an empty wine bottle on the floor of the car.
    He says, “Sir, have you been drinking?”
    “Just water,” says the priest. The trooper says, “Then why do I smell wine?”
    The priest looks at the bottle and says, “Good Lord! He’s done it again!”
