Hey, Let’s Kill The French Wine Industry!!
If I got together some co-conspirators, huddled in a dark place with candles aglow and hatched a diabolical plan to destroy the French wine industry, one of the things at the top of my LIST OF DIABOLICAL THINGS TO DESTROY THE FRENCH WINE INDUSTRY would be to ban free tastings of wine.
But since I don't know any dark places, have no candles and can't think of a single person who would want to conspire to destroy the French wine industry…Oh…wait, it appears there are some potential co-conspirators out there for me to huddle with.
But they beat me to the most obvious plan for destroying the most prestigious industry the French possess.
These French! They have no sense of efficiency.Clearly they are attempting to destroy the French wine industry, but their problem is that they are going about it in drips and drabs. And this is what separates the Boy countries from the Men Countries. There are much easier, quicker and effective ways to kill the cash cow of France.
Come'on you guys! Think straight and just do the following as quickly as possible and be done with it.
1. Enact Prohibition
2. Put a 90% tax on the sale of all grapes for production purposes
3. Ban all visual representations of wine in public
That should do the trick.
