Joke of The Day

 A wealthy playboy met a beautiful young girl in an exclusive
 lounge. He took her to his lavish apartment where he soon
 discovered she was not a tramp, but was well groomed and
 apparently very intelligent. Hoping to get her into bed he
 began showing her his collection of expensive paintings,
 first editions by famous authors and offered her a glass
 of wine.

 He asked whether she preferred Port or Sherry and she said,
 "Oh, Sherry by all means. To me it's the nectar of the gods.
 Just looking at it in a crystal-clear decanter fills me with a
 glorious sense of anticipation. When the stopper is removed
 and the gorgeous liquid is poured into my glass, I inhale the
 enchanting aroma and I'm lifted on the wings of ecstasy. It
 seems as though I'm about to drink a magic potion and my
 whole being begins to glow. The sound of a thousand violins
 being softly played fills my ears and I'm transported into
 another world.

 "On the other hand, Port makes me fart."

Quote of the Day

"I am a drinker with a writing problem."
- Brendan Behan (February 9th 1923 to  March 20th 1964), an Irish poet.
"I only drink on two occasions - When I am thirsty and when I'm not thirsty."
- Brendan Behan
