This is dedicated to all Poetbay wine drinkers! Cheers!

Ask a silly question

The metric inspector, armed with notebook and pen,
Asked the vintner why there were twelve bottles in
A case of wine;
The vintner, armed with corkscrew and pin,
Replied with truth divine,
'Why, twelve is two more than ten'.

Of course it is. Some people just love to ask silly questions. Pass the cabernet and cheers to you.
