LCBO Strike?! Screw them and drink amazing Ontario Wines & Beers

It looks like the LCBO (aka the “Lick Beau”) could be offline for the summer, which means many of us will be forced to drink beer from the beer store, which does not have the greatest selection of beers, or wine from “the wine rack” which has an equally dismal selection of wines.

Did you know that we have over 100 boutique wineries in Ontario, with almost all of them not being sold in the lcbo.  Many of these wines are amazing but many vintners don’t have the budget or resources to deal with the lcbo, check them out, I promise you wont be disappointed.

Not to be forgotten, the OCB makes some great beers, and are often on the way when doing a wine tour, check them out as well!

FAKE MEAT? WTF!

The thought of someday putting a piece of meat on my grill that was produced by some sort of science magic aka “in vitro”, really does not light me up. Farming and butchering is a nobel trade, as is the preparation of delicious bbq. 

While on the topic of fake meat, What the hell is up with all the Meat and Dairy Analogs? Tofurkey brats ? soy burgers ?  Garden riblets? Soy Milk? When was the last time you saw a soybean with a nipple? There are tons of non meat products out there that I love, Grilled veggies are awesome! I would not want to eat simulated vegetables, why would anyone want to eat simulated meat? 

Fake Meat Prize!

April fools day – Joke of the day.

In Pharmacology, all drugs have two names, a trade name and a generic name.

For example, the trade name of Tylenol also has a generic name of Acetaminophen. Aleve is also called Naproxen. Amoxil is also called Amoxicillin and Advil is also called Ibuprofen.

The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were  Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.  

Pfizer Corp. announced today that Viagra will soon be available in liquid form and will be marketed by Pepsi Cola as a power beverage suitable for use as a mixer. It will now be possible for a man to literally pour himself a stiff one. Obviously we can no longer call this a soft drink, and it gives new meaning to the names of “cocktails”, “highballs” and just a good old-fashioned “stiff drink”. Pepsi will market the new concoction using the name: MOUNT & DO.

Thought  for the day: There is more money being spent on breast implants and Viagra today than on Alzheimer’s research. This means that by 2040, there should be a large elderly population with perky boobs and huge erections and absolutely no recollection of what to do with them.
