I've got my proctologists grip with my thumb firmly inserted into the punt....What now? ...he asked coyly...Have her grasp the stem and put your pinot in her vinum....use great care not to get any on her dress....it might cause a stain....

Thanks, very interesting.

I always assumed that the punt was to deceive the buyer into thinking there was more wine in the bottle. I guess I'm just cynical.

Great stuff, BestInShow! Did you know you can train a dog to bring you a glass of red wine? It's called a Bordeaux collie. <exits stage left...>

Yuk, yuk. That's funny.

Unlike the crass, juvenile, inappropriate, filthy, sexual comments added by SolarEagle, and (no surprise here) no class phoenix911.

".Have her grasp the stem and put your pinot in her vinum....use great care not to get any on her dress....it might cause a stain...."

You can't possibly expect anybody here to believe that you and 911, especially, were not alluding to Bill Clinton's exploits when we have an admitted p^^^y grabber in the Oval Office.

Do I have to spell it out for you? It's obvious 911 gets it, as does everyone else in most of the free world! You guys can play your games,don't expect some here to appreciate the trash.

Don't insult the collective intelligence of the entire forum!

Well I can't speak for 911, I'm sure he thought that to be clever....But you should properly hold the stem of your wine glass when pouring, pinot is a type of wine, and vinum is a type of wine glass.....and finally wine is notorious for staining....Any interpretations you made, came for your own mind....You seem to have a filthy mind, and also to be quite upset about it....seek help

Nice try. I don't buy it and neither will the other adults on the forum.

Yes I did,... the content is true and if you put that together yourself, I'm impressed.

for me, for the lack of the growing old gene and fossilizing, I just thought it'll be a good time to place Bill's new show for the fifthly minds here. You know,... trying to lift a certain few that really took last November 8th, 2016 really hard and melting down.

meanwhile,... lyn gets hungry and goes through a McDonalds drive through and orders a #2, #3, #4, #5 and #6.... ahhhh, give me and #1 too.

That was indeed a classy Lassie pun.

As to what SE and Lyn seem to be batting back and forth, on further review nothing out of the ordinary to see here, the play stands as called (for SE).
