I like how one of the topics the article is filed under is "dining and drinking."

Also, without knowing what kind of Cabernet Sauvignon it was, I can't become emotionally involved in this story.

A lot of people in this country pooh-pooh Australian table wines. This is a pity, as many fine Australian wines appeal not only to the Australian palette, but also to the cognoscenti of Great Britain.

'Black stump Bordeaux' is rightly praised as a peppermint flavoured Burgundy, whilst a good 'Sydney Syrup' can rank with any of the world's best sugary wines.

'Chateau Bleu', too, has won many prizes; not least for its taste, and its lingering afterburn.

'Old Smokey, 1968' has been compared favourably to a Welsh claret, whilst the Australian wino society thouroughly recommends a 1970 'Côtes du Rod Laver', which, believe me, has a kick on it like a mule: 8 bottles of this, and you're really finished -- at the opening of the Sydney Bridge Club, they were fishing them out of the main sewers every half an hour.

Of the sparkling wines, the most famous is 'Perth Pink'. This is a bottle with a message in, and the message is BEWARE!. This is not a wine for drinking -- this is a wine for laying down and avoiding.

Another good fighting wine is 'Melbourne Old-and-Yellow', which is particularly heavy, and should be used only for hand-to-hand combat.

Quite the reverse is true of 'Chateau Chunder', which is an appellation controlee, specially grown for those keen on regurgitation -- a fine wine which really opens up the sluices at both ends.

Real emetic fans will also go for a 'Hobart Muddy', and a prize winning 'Cuvée Réserve Chateau Bottled Nuit San Wogga Wogga', which has a bouquet like an aborigine's armpit.

Duncan said he slipped into the house to get keys to his car, according to the police arrest affidavit, which does not explain why Duncan's keys might have been in Copeland's house.

This was a strange sentence in the article, I am also not sure if this is true why he was going to open the door for his 'accomplice.'

The vast majority of burglaries happen during the normal working hours of 8am-5pm. Burglars are cowards, they don't want anyone in the house when they go in.

Just because someone does something in the simplest manner with the least amount of resistance, it does not make them a coward. If you ask me, it takes a large amount of courage and an extra helping of stupid to try and pull it off when you merely think no one is home.

No, they are just smart cowards. They don't have any courage at all or else they wouldn't be stealing stuff in the first place. A person with courage will bust their ass at a shiatty job to support themselves and their family even though they know they could do it much easier by stealing from others. Looking into the face of difficulty and doing it anyway just because it's the right thing to do is moral courage. I hate thieves.

You're right, home-invasion robberies never occur.

Can't believe the cops only charged him with trespassing. Clearly, they'd tried to set him up and were going to pull the invasion with him in the house.

Cleese did play the maitre d' in the Meaning of Life Creosote scene, though. And he was the one who suggested everything on the menu and did the vast majority of the talking. IIRC, he was the one who wanted to do that skit because he realized that his part was the best part. Idle did the follow-up scene.
