He will drink no wine before its time

And it's always time somewhere, it appears.

Look, I admit that I feel guilty about laughing at this. Orson Welles made two of my all-time faves, Citizen Kane and Touch of Evil. So enjoy this while cringing for the genius that was.

BTW, I was never able to understand the Paul Masson slogan: "We will serve no wine before it's time" (i.e., before it is time to serve the wine) or "...before its time" (i.e., before the wine's time)? Neither way particularly makes a lot of sense. And I think the wine was pretty bad, too.

Via Gawker.

mwaaaAAAHhah hah, French Champagne!

Champagne gives me awful headaches. Much like the one Orson must have had the next day.

Of course it makes sense. That fine winery will not sell unmatured, unrefined wine surely you can taste it in every refined drop, no?

Plus I've heard that Paul Masson wine goes very well with frozen peas.
