A Whale of a Good Time: WLD 072


Welcome to the show drinkers and thank you for drinking along with us for episode 72. Man, have you guys recovered from episode 71 yet? Before we meet our panel tonight, I wanted to take a minute to raise a glass to everyone that’s listening right now. A toast.

Thank you for joining us on this drinking frontier,
We hope you’re enjoying your wine or craft beer.
But if it’s an “America”, dump that crap out,
Or John may leave us to mope and to pout.
It’s time for me to ask you to make our hearts glow,
By finding us online and subscribing to the show.
Be it iTunes, or Android, Stitcher or Google Play,
Subscribe and you’ll get the show every Fri-day.
But enough of this nonsense, let’s get on with the show, 
Jeff’s got to tell us all about his Bordeaux.
Holy cow, this toast, it’s been quite a spectacle,
you know John cannot wait to say smoked whale testicle.
 With that, let’s find out who we’re drinking with tonight…
