Ugh “French champagne”
Sorry another one I get a chuckle over. Have an aquaintence who likes to pretend she’s upper class etc who comes out with that line. I haven’t been mean enough to embarrass her in front of everyone by pointing out that ALL champagne is French (but not all French sparkling is champagne).

Interesting stat recently , about how much cheaper the wines were compared to water.
   I think a minimum price has been put on resale wines in Oz recently ,    It had become tooooo cheap.

Clap It's so refreshing to be corrected by someone who knows what they are talking about!

Spot on again E&E ... not sure if TJ and Gai were aware of that, or what a bottle cost!Wink

aaaah yes, always enjoyed the ole Two Dogs! ... I prefer the punchline;

But you just can't go wrong with a good racially inspired joke!Big smile

It's funny ,   I always think of that joke when WHALE returns from Holidays and disrupts the much more pleasant and peaceful forum that exists when he's chomping at the bit .
Same pattern , he tries to ignite E&E , who probably prefers the periods when Whale is pleading to get back.

I think the reason for an automatic punchline between our notorious poster and that joke reminder is =
   Both are about Fcuking Dogs.

No worries Tontonan, I wouldn’t have known any different myself until the other day.
Makes for a nice conversation starter though 😀

Does your unbacked winner = Phelps , make it to the Hall of Fame .

Kerryn Phelps and wife become proxy parents ( wasn't gelded )
Has children from a normal marriage so she's been both sides of the fence .

   In Racing terms that's Bi sexual .      They hate the term because if a Doctor is that stuffed up in the head ,   The Dollars may not walk through the door.
But Now Parliament is a different kettle of fish ...   It's added points to get at the Peoples Tax.
How do people vote for these mis fits.

gotta love a Bi Election, when one actually gets elected!LOL

Was Gai at the Celebration party? ... she can hear a cork pop from 3 electorates away you know! I'm surprised that she didn't give the Victory Speech and claim that she was responsible for making Phelps "the Politician that she is today!" - pretty sure she also gave Young Tom the inside info to lay the LNP candidate till his nose bled ... she had the Indy,  "trained" to the minute, and had declared to all and sundry that Phelps was "a Great Each Way Chance!!!" 

As for "Hall of Fame" status, you would think that she would need to hold the seat at the next general election ... chances are that there will be a bigger stronger field for that, and with Gai likely to "tip" the lot of them as "each way all day", if Phelps fails it will all be Bott's fault.

Hey Doc, if you want to get on the ‘giving up meekly in the home straight’ bandwagon, you may want to change stables and start following the Baker stable.
Music Magnate was a nice example for you.
