Plus, in an unrelated story, scientists use GPS tracking to prove a long-standing "selfish herd" theory amongst sheep.

that was an incredible segue.

And this is why I only drink Olde English. Kinda like dating a fat chick, you don't feel bad when it ends.

Difficulty: Club allowed customer to fondle "priceless" artifact knowing full well he was drunk; it's not like it was an unrelated accident where he fell into a shelf holding the liquor. Plus it had already been drunk from, possibly many times by then, so the value certainly wasn't full, and even if it was, the price they originally bought it for just a few years prior was less than half the quoted amount.

Conclusion: An insurance scam by a club that's losing money. Most Playboy Clubs have already closed, this one was probably next on the block.
 
2012-07-25 11:19:29 AM
Ah, just saw the part about how it wasn't even insured at all. In that case, plain old incompetence rules the day, then.

FTA: "Unfortunately for all, the bottle of Clos de Griffier Vieux wasn't insured because it had already been open. "

Sorry, McGruff.

Did the bar bill this clumsy, over-privileged oaf the 77K or did they totally pussy out and let the profits literally go down the drain?

Must be swell to be so filthy stinking rich that you not only can buy such expensive cocktails, but you can go "whoops! My bad!" just to make sure that no one else on Earth can enjoy it.

So, what else has Mitt Romney been up to this week?

Um, the article says "...wasn't insured because it had already been open".

So you're wrong.

OTOH I don't see how they can be too pissed at him. Not if he's a "regular" who just spent 10 grand on drinks before he did it.

I hate to say this, I really do, but there is only one thing to do if you break a 1788 vintage $77,000 bottle of Cognac at the London Playboy Club.

Suck rug.

Suck rug like courtiers at the Court of the Dowager Empress of China.

What's that noise? Thunder? No, it is thousands of Farkers kicking themselves in the ass for missing the Post of the Day, Week, Month and possibly Year.

Boo yah!

Careful! You're going to pull a muscle if you keep patting yourself on the back like that.

And replaced with the exact same HuffPo article linked above, once the malware thing was discovered.

Yes, this is still a repeat.

Well if they had a PHD in chemistry and were a bartender could they be a mixologist or would it be Dr. Bartender?

Next mission, great internet righter of wrongs: Read the post after the one you want to reply to, first. (Gunderson gets a pass because I'm sure he was replying before I posted.)

They have one in Cancun and the hotel that my brother, his fiance, my wife and I were staying at was right next to it. We figured we'd go in because apparently they have a casino. It was... strange. We never actually got IN. When we walked up, we were told that it was closed. We asked when it opened and they said it was closed. We tried a couple times, saw some people going in, but it was always closed. Very weird.

Just so you know -- "you break it, you buy it" is not legally enforceable.
