babble

Postby thefrogwhisperer » Mon Jul 02, 2012 12:55 am

i know this is random, but at my local trader joes they have a new wine called babble, and the label has Mr. Tenniel's illustration from the chapter a caucus race and a long tale with the mouse talking to all the animals (and alice). but he's holding a wine glass and bottle, and alice is not in the picture!

your thoughts? AIW:-o

Someone gave me an empty bottle and it's sitting in my bedroom with fake roses in it! I think they substituted the Gryphon for Alice because people might not see it as appropriate to put a little girl on wine or maybe to prevent children from thinking it's for them to drink....I don't know, just some thoughts. :-)

If I was cleverer, I'd make a joke about that bit where the hare says "Have some wine" even though there isn't any. :|

I was thinking about that quote when I filled my bottle with the fake flowers. It adds to the duality of it being a Wonderland themed decoration; red roses for the Queen and no wine:-)
