Tintin & Bordeaux

Tintin and Miloux Belt



2000 Les Caleches de Lanessan Bordeaux from the Haut Medoc

Chateau Lanessan put out this second growth Bordeaux in 2000 and for $15 it really hits the mark. I found it at...OW! Shit, why'd you hit me? Uh, sorry. The Gulf Foxtrot has asked me not to divulge the retailer of this fine yet affordable red. I'm wondering how the heck the French can get a bottle of this to our shores for a lousy $15 bucks when they have more middle men in the wine biz than ADG has peak lapel blazers he can't wear.

Speaking of which...here's another belt I can't wear. Tintin gear goes for an arm and leg...when you can find it. This belt went for a lot more than $15 yet it doesn't taste near as good as the Lanessan. But I can't chuck it. Not yet. Maybe...OW! Shit, why do you keep hitting me? Uh, sorry. Anyone wanna buy a belt? $15 should cover it.

Well written.

Here's a rather good warm-weather belt. An MD, gynecologist, came up with a cooler using a glass of Pabst Blue Ribbon beer and a hefty shot of Smirnoff vodka. He dubbed it
"PabstSmir."

What size is that belt?

I'd take that belt for $15 for sure.

Tin...the belt should come to me at 15 bucks in an effort to mitigate the bad feelings conjured after clicking on the peak lapel link.

Your dad should start a joke blog.

A Tintin and Snowy belt! That's just too excellent! I'd wear that on all my adventures, and then maybe they'd be as fun as theirs. As it it, I already have a Tintin watch...

Nice pairing with the Bordeaux since Belgian wines are sure to be of a lesser variety?

Wasn't intended as a joke. Just fact. So, as we used to say in the Roman Army: IVQII.
