Hop on the Night Train

Everything you always wanted to know about the five worst wines in the world but were afraid to ask. My parents ran a liquor store for 11 years or so, I'm sure they both know the names of all the rest of the stuff winos drink. I distinctly remember one booze called, I kid you not, "fighting cock." Was a whisky, I believe (but probably only in the broadest of terms), and it had a flammability warning on it.

eMail this entry!

Yep, it's a whiskey, 103 proof. (My ex & I ran a liquor store for 13 yrs.) Most of our hardcore winos drank Mogen David 20/20 (20 proof), aka "Mad Dog". The high alcohol content is obtained by the addition of pure grain alcohol.

Nasty stuff.

I am familiar with three out of the five. MD 20-20, Wild Irish Rose,& "what's the word?" Thunderbird which comes in a blue label as well as the red label for the wine expert!

Long time ago and far away. I am sure there are more out there now.

I love a good fightin
g cock, but wild irish rose is defintely a whole new level as you can tell by my spelling. I am ready to experience what;s the word Thundeerbird (it was in our case about a whino)

The future lawywers of america

Folks, you're forgetting the gutter of gutter-wines, the "fuck you up"-est of them all.

Long live Manischewitz!

I work for "A Very Large Alcohol Distribution Comapny," and I have the lowdown on the gutter wines:

M/D 20/20 and Manischewitz (along with a few other nasties) come in more flavors than you can shake a fucking stick at. M/D, at last check at 16 flavors (Banana Red and Strawberry-Kiwi Creamsicle being the newest) and Manis coming in a close second with 12 (Kiwi Creamsicle being the newest).

Just some fun info, and making sure no one forgot Manis!

Due respect, but finding out there's a Strawberry-Kiwi Creamsicle flavored night train has to rank right up there with finding out why moms need diaper-sized pads after delivery. I didn't need to know either, and both are going to leave me scarred.

with drinks like 20/20, it's the screw on cap thats the sign of top quality. and if you want to throw up the next morning, just place the cap to your nose and breathe in the sweet aroma of alcohol, artificial flavourings and vomit.

DO IT! I'm drinking wild irish right now and it's 11:51am. P.S. Don't blame me for stinkin' up the library.
