Scandal Edition

Wine

The Big DuBoeuf-ski - It seems Mssr. Duboeuf is not the only 'bad boy George' to roam the halls of power.  The DuDude "faces a £130,000 fine for allegedly tampering with 300,000 bottles of wine..."Duboeuf appeared in court on Tuesday to deny accusations of 'fraud and attempted fraud concerning the origin and quality of wines'." [Decanter via Vinosense]

Reader Jameson of Le Wine Blog reports back from his debauche-filled weekend in Sin City:  "I was at a restaurant in Vegas and they were offering the Beringer White Zinfandel for 30 bucks a bottle.  I think that is the most gougetastic pricing I have ever seen.  I think this is a maybe $3 cost wine for a restaurant.  Unbelieveable."  Let's hope that what happens in Vegas stays in L.V.  Eegad.

The Desert One Debacle - Not necessarily a scandal, per se, but certainly a fascinating, if little known bit of history.  Read about it in this month's Atlantic.

Lenn

Forrest Whitaker? WTF? ;)

I gotta check this thing out..maybe I look like Chris Rock?

Lenn

I was wrong...it came back with Billy Ocean.

Get out of my dreams....get into my car...

Steve-o

Quincy Jones for me. Can't say I see a resemblence...! (Indeed, given the hat I was wearing in the photo, I thought I would end up with Mike Nesmith, for sure...)

beau

Yeah but Quincy is just so damn cool. Maybe it was your photo's aura of coolness?

Cam Wheeler

I got Jesse Jackson on one photo and Bruce Willis on another - could kind of see a bit of facial structure resemblance on both.

Better than my (male) friend who was also in the second photo and was recognised as Christina Ricci!

Andrew

It must be the ears....
