UH-OH
« on: September 06, 2013, 09:27:38 AM »
At a wine merchant's warehouse the regular taster died, and the director started looking for a new one to hire.

A retired Master Chief Petty Officer, drunk and with a ragged dirty look, came to apply for the position. The director wondered how to send him away.  They gave him a glass of wine to taste.

The old Chief tried it and said, "It's a Muscat three years old, grown on a north slope, matured in steel containers. Low grade but acceptable."  "That's correct," said the boss.
"Another glass, please. After tasting the wine,the Chief declared, " a cabernet, eight years old, south-western slope, oak barrels, matured at eight degrees. Requires three more years for finest results."  "Absolutely correct.
A third glass."

''It's a pinot blanc champagne, high grade and exclusive,'' calmly said the drunk.
The director was astonished and winked at his secretary to suggest something. She left the room and came back in with a glass of urine.

The old Navy Chief tried it. "It's a blonde, 26 years old, three months pregnant, and if I don't get the job, I'll name the father.
"Listen to the mustn'ts, child. Listen to the don'ts. Listen to the shouldn'ts, the impossibles, the won'ts. Listen to the never haves, then listen close to me . . . Anything can happen, child. Anything can be"
