THE WAKKER WEEKLY - Issue #1276 - Posted on: 13-Jul-2015
Bushwakker NewsOur July premium wines are from Australia. The red is The Forbidden Red from the Urban Myth Winery; $8.50 for a glass and $24.95 for a half litre. The white is McGuigan Black Label Moscato, $6.50 for a glass and $19.95 for a half litre. Our guest draught tap is currently pouring the Saugatuck Neapolitan Milk Stout from Michigan. $9.50 pint. Yes, chocolate, vanilla and strawberry characteristics found here! Next up is the Stiegl Radler Grapefuit Lager from Austria. The next beer in our single hop series beer is hopped with Zythos, a HopUnion (a hop provider) proprietary blend, but the same blend is used at all stages of the brewing process; lots of tropical, citric flavors and aromas. For those who mourn the demotion of Sodbuster Brown Ale from its status as a “year-round” beer to “seasonal”, a brew of Sodbuster is working its way through the brewery. It’s already been fermented and is now in the conditioning stage.

Time OutA guy dials his home phone from work. A strange woman answers. The guy says, "Who is this?" This is the maid.", answered the woman. We don't have a maid!" I was just hired this morning by the lady of the house." Well, this is her husband. Is she there?" Ummm .... she's upstairs in the bedroom with someone who I just figured was her husband." The guy is fuming. He says to the maid, "Listen, would you like to make $50,000?" What do I have to do?" I want you to get my gun from my desk in the den and shoot that bitch and the jerk she is with." The maid puts down the phone. The guy hears footsteps, followed by two gunshots. The maid comes back to the phone. "What should I do with the bodies?" Throw them in the swimming pool!" What?! There's no pool here?" Long pause... "Uh .... is this 832-4821?"
