TWC is a firm believer that dialing .357 is more efficient than dialing 911. Apparently, dialing B-O-R-D-E-A-U-X is another option.
A tip of the glass to the Box Wine Guy, who spins the tale of a DC home invasion robbery foiled with a glass of wine.....
After the guy sticks a gun to a fourteen year old girl's head, quick thinking Cristina Rowan says,
We were just finishing dinner. Why don't you have a glass of wine with us?
That's pretty much right out of a Monty Python skit.
The intruder had a sip of their Chateau Malescot St-Exupery and said, Damn, that's good wine.
Course it was red wine. Good red wine. Would a glass of Chardonnay have done the trick? Be still.
I suppose the DC government will use this incident in its ongoing efforts to annul amendment two. Except for Carl Rowan, who went for a gun instead of a glass, DC residents don't need handguns, they need wine.
(pretty sure Cristina is not related to Carl)
