Were you trying to determine if the Boone's Farm was properly termed plonk? Or merely trying to determine the proper service to use?

Very good, max; you were able to deduce the article from which I took the image and caption.

Did I blow up your troll, Ben? I'm sorry. It didn't look like a troll.

Apparently your mileage may vary in Montana.

Finally, Plonk is blessed by original works of art produced not only to create historical resonance within our building, but with specific intent for the particular walls on which they reside.

maybe i told it already, ot joke
so in the winter a bear was hitting his head against a tree: - damn, damn, damn, shouldn't have been drinking coffee in the autumn
i think it's wrong to serve plonk in the plastic cups, who knows alcohol may dissolve those estrogen like substances in plastic more powerfully than f.e water, male drinkers could be endangered, more gynecomastias or prostate cancer

Actually, I thought it was a Does a bear shit in the woods? joke and couldn't figure it out until I read 9.

8: He he.

A lot of read's jokes have a rhythm that is very different than American jokes, a rhythm which I associate with Russian jokes. The jokes don't have a set up and then a punch line. Instead they are just a single funny image.

Is this something other people have noticed, or am I just making up random cultural stereotypes again?

The best success I've had with bad wine is to heat it up and add sugar ans spice -- mulled wine. Sure, it's cheating, but if you like mulled wine, it works.

Sort of like pop wine really, get the alcohol down without tasting the vehicle itself.

13 -- [Taking the question seriously.] There are a series of rhetorical questions, that one can use to respond to a foolishly obvious question posed by someone who should know better, e.g., is the Pope Catholic, does a bear shit in the woods, is a pig's ass pork, are the Kennedys gunshy. I'm sure there are many more.

13: Oh, it was just a passing thought - I saw 9 almost simultaneously with 8 and got the joke, and I thought it was funny.

Right, as CC says, "Does a bear shit in the woods?" is supposed to be a question that's so obviously true, that you can say it as a response to a question with an obvious answer.

I just thought "coffee" -> "using the bathroom"...you all can see how my digestive process works.

Further to 18: You can get extra funny by mixing and matching: "Does the Pope shit in the woods?" "Is a Kennedy's ass pork?"

But think of all the fun you would miss out on if you avoided doing something just because it involved contact with a carcinogen!

i mean i hope nobody was aware perhaps about that danger in this case, so i'm like a pioneer
if there was no that possibility i have nothing against using the plastic cups, nothing like esthetic objection, coz always think like, cheaper better
but if plastics are plus to that, non-degradeable and are environmental hazard too, maybe their use should be banned in eateries

If we didn't have plastic, what would we put all of our cancer-causing soft drinks (or milk) in in our supermarkets? Glass?
