They really are reaching now, aren’t they?
The Beeb was awash this morning with news that you can now buy a glass that will contain a -wait for it- a a whole bottle of wine! Arggh! Somebody alert the authorities!
Because of course, if someone usually drinks three or four glasses of wine then obviously if they use this type of glass then their consumption will skyrocket to three or four bottles! Ooman natcha, innit. People are greedy and furthermore too dim to appreciate the difference between a glass holding 25ml and a glass holding 70cl. Something Must Be Done! And just WHAT about the drain on the NHS, that’s what I’d like to know!!
Which all pre supposes that it’s actually anybody’s damn business how many bottles of wine an individual may or may not choose to drink, which of course it isn’t. Oh, and to cap it all off, this isn’t even news (it’s olds). Here’s a picture of my sister-in-law drinking vodka and coke out of just such a glass two christmases ago:
