Wal-Mart Wine

Far be it from me to regurgitate items from my Inbox, so I'm pilfering this from someone else's Inbox. But, I had to pass this on for some *pun alert* cheap laughs:

Some Walmart customers soon will be able to sample a new discount item: Wal-Mart's own brand of wine.

The world's largest retail chain is teaming up with E&J Gallo Winery of Modesto, California, to produce the spirits at an affordable price, in the $2-5 range.

While wine connoisseurs may not be inclined to throw bottle of Walmart brand wine into their shopping carts, there is a market for cheap wine, said Kathy Micken, professor of marketing at Roger Williams University in Bristol, R.I. She said: "The right name is important." So, here we go:

The Top 12 suggested names for Walmart Wine:

12. Chateau Traileur Parc
11. White Trashfindel
10. Big Red Gulp
 9. Grape Expectations
 8. Domaine Wal-Mart "Merde du Pays"
 7. NASCARbernet
 6. Chef Boyardeaux
 5. Peanut Noir
 4. Chateau des Moines
 3. I Can't Believe It's Not Vinegar!
 2. World Championship Riesling

And the number 1 name for Wal-Mart Wine ....

 1. Nasti Spumante

The beauty of Wal-Mart wine is that it can be served with white meat (Possum) and red meat (squirrel).
