Vin de Merde

Pissed off French winemakers will sue you if you insult their wine. Actually, you have to defame it by calling it "vin de merde.* It's defamatory in France.

It was a little rougher justice outside Golgotha about 2000 years ago. When faced with some vin de merde, Jesus wouldn't drink it:

"They wanted Jesus to drink wine mixed with something bitter. Jesus tasted it but he would not drink it."

He was killed shortly thereafter.

By the way, Bill Clinton (from the Bible Belt) made the claim that he tried pot, but didn't inhale. He ripped that straight from the Book of Mark: "Bill tried it but he would not inhale it."

* - "Shit wine."
