At some function the other day... Labels: jokes
Pretty waitress : Would you like wine or beer?
Vincent : Beer please. And after that some whiskey would do just fine...
Pretty waitress : How about you, sir? Beer or wine?
Slyvester : What wine is that? I want to see the bottle..
*inspects the label carefully*
Slyvester : Aaahh....Cabinet Sawvinon. Yes, I want some.
And then, as you would expect Slyvester then proceeded to sniff around the glass, hovering it so close to his nose that some of his nose hair might have dropped right in. He swirls the glass so much you would think he's trying to create a storm in a teacup (pardon the bad joke). The yuppie then proceeds to take another whiff of the cabinet before finally deciding that his tongue is ready for all that rotten grape.
Slyvester : Errgh! Scuse me! Scuse ME!
Waitress : Yes, sir?
Slyvester : This wine is not cold enough. Give me some ice.
*plonks 4 cubes of ice into the wine glass*
Vincent : Dude...what the fuck are you doing?
Slyvester : This wine is too warm.
Vincent : SO!?!? That doesn't mean you plonk ice into your wine!!
Slyvester : No la. It's meant to be like that. For beer, you don't put ice. But for wine, you are meant to use ice to chill it.
Vincent : No way!
Slyvester : Yes, trust me. I always drink wine.
Vincent : Eh, red wine is supposed to be drank at room temperature la. Ok, you can argue that room temperature in France and places like that is 15 degrees....so you are supposed to chill it in a bloody ice bucket!
Slyvester : Oh, ice bucket is ok, but ice cubed are preferred.
Vincent : Alrite. I've learnt a new lesson today.
I am proud of myself. I have learnt to control my anger and not shout at idiots. It is a skill which I believe would prove useful in the months to come.
I'm quite a wine drinker myself and never have i heard of anyone 'plonking' ice cubes into their glasses of wine to cool it.
Actually if most people knew how to hold a wine glass properly, it bloody wouldn't keep getting warmed up.
You're right when you say that red wine is supposed to be drank at room temperature.
Which made me cringe when he says "it's meant to be like that".
That's like saying beer should be drank warm, not ice-cold.
Yes, I hate warm beer. =P
but i would love to have a friend like yours. he will unintentionally provide entertainment for you and your friends whenever all of you go out. he will also be the star of most of the classic stories that you and your friends tell and laugh to over and over again.
Then again if he gets the tab, I am fucking fine with it.
Room temperature, in laboratory reports, is taken to be roughly 21–23 degrees Celsius (69-73 degrees Fahrenheit), or 294–296 kelvin.
so i dont think its a matter of which country are you in....and by the way...rooms in France are not kept at 15C.....think those Frenchie would catch a cold in that temp.
