From the Screening Room to the Tasting Room

I like irony, it tickles me.

A pron star has produced a highly rated red wine, which might as well be called Boobs and Wine from all the photos I've seen so far. And the irony is what she says in the interview,
"I never wanted to just do gimmick. That would just happen with me being a porn star, me having a photographer shoot the label, how risque could I get on the label -- all those things," Samson, the stage name for 31-year-old Natalie Oliveros, said in an interview.
Funny how every single photo involved in this new wine shows a set of boobs in very close proximity and exposure or some other risque pose that says "I used to have sex on camera and now I make wine, hehehe". Mmmmm, iron-ocalicious.

Bleh.

But far, far less annoying and stupid than a new law in Texas where the fucking genius cops are going to go undercover into bars and observe people drinking beer and, holy em-effing-shizzle, they get drunk. And then arrest them for it. Thanks Texas. It looks like a Battle Royale between you and South Dakota for Biggest DutchBag State in the Country. Woohoo! I love the incredibly pathetic justification for it too (well not really)
The goal, she [Carolyn Beck, the spokeswoman for the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission] said, was to detain drunks before they leave a bar and go do something dangerous like drive a car.
Or walk home or skip home or get a cab or go make a booty call. Oooh, thanks Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission for being my daddy and making sure I don't misbehave or fall down and hurt myself.

Or wait, nevermind, I don't live in fucking Texas. Hell, I won't even take a flight with a layover in Texas. As a commenter on MeFi suggested, can't we just cut Texas loose from the Union altogether?
