FINE WINE - MEN - WOMENStomped grapes

To Women:

Men are like fine wine. They all start out like grapes, and it's our

job to stomp on them and keep them in the dark until they mature into

something with which you'd like to have dinner with.

Men's counter view:

Women are like fine wine. They all start out fresh, fruity and

intoxicating to the mind and then turn full-bodied with age until they

go all sour and vinegary and give you a headache.


Montrachet, Puligny or Chassagne,

What are they? But Chardonnay!

In Bordeaux, it's Cabernet,

With Chateau this and that.

In Burgundy, Pinot Noir is where its at,

With domaine here and there,

And a clos or two in between,

What it all comes to,

Be it red or white, still or sparkling,

Even rose, which is neither here nor there,

It's all wine to me,
