C18H27NO3: Really? People are taken in just because of a novelty label?whocares.jpg
Sugarbombs: Not done in 1 or 0. Still looks like two noses.
dv-ous: C18H27NO3: Really? People are taken in just because of a novelty label?whocares.jpgwell, I mean, my corner liquor store has 30+ brands in the $8-$18 range, half of which weren't there last year, half of which won't be there next year, and all of which have an 80-something Wine Spectator score.So, I can either buy the one I always buy, or try something else for the fun of it, knowing that it won't be degreaser.If I'm feeling adventurous, the only distinguishing characteristic is the label.
Ensayia: Then I would put it down and move on. Wine is gross.
RealAmericanHero: Ensayia: Then I would put it down and move on. Wine is gross.What? It's essentially the only form of alcohol that doesn't taste like it was fermented in a vat spiced with rags which were infused with the greases of a hobo's ass.I'll never understand the beer lovers and the people that insist any sort of liquor can taste like anything other than reeking bum sweat or gasoline.
Cranky McOldfart: Don't feel bad; a lot of idiots have trouble understanding other people.
E5bie: Mikey1969:Sure, the label is supposed to catch your eye, but judging a wine based solely on the label is gonna have you drinking Thunderbird and Mad Dog 20/20 just as soon as they hire a new marketing firm.LOLZ. Funee 'cause it's true!I used to drink the bottle with the picture of a kangaroo on it, but the one with the footprint logo comes in more convenient sizes, so I drink that one now.
RealAmericanHero: Cranky McOldfart: Don't feel bad; a lot of idiots have trouble understanding other people.I realize you just tried to troll me, but I'm just confused. Total whiff. I'm like not even worth it. And it didn't work anyway. Gotta step up your game, bro.
Fireproof: I'm definetly seeing a mouth on the turbaned guy's forehead.
Mikey1969: Sugarbombs: Not done in 1 or 0. Still looks like two noses.Yep, not a good example of this illusion at all. The image in the Boobies is at least a better attempt, but still not great.What I truly can't belive is that someone was SO wowed by this that it merited an entire article about it.

Mikey1969: Then you're not doing it right... I don't even drink wine, and I know that people try wines they've never heard of before because of the winery, the style, the ingredients, the awards it may have won, all kinds of stuff, but not the frigging label.
aaronius: That's ok, wine only turns into alcohol if you let it sit.

I don't even drink wine, and I know that people try wines they've never heard of before because of the winery, the style, the ingredients, the awards it may have won, all kinds of stuff, but not the frigging label.Apparently you've never been to a store with a good selection of wine, or at least never looked around one. Talking 100+ brands, which would put 30+ in the $8-18 range dv-ous mentioned. Really, you're going to expect someone to know that many brands offhand, half of which will be from Europe, Australia, or South America, while new brands are coming and going every few weeks? Do your friends want validation from experts before they'll even touch it?Wine is hardly special, once you're familiar it can be just as much an impulse buy item as anything else in the store. I've found great stuff cheap with random buys.Sure, the label is supposed to catch your eye, but judging a wine based solely on the label is gonna have you drinking Thunderbird and Mad Dog 20/20 just as soon as they hire a new marketing firm.Don't forget that he's also partly judging it on price. MD20/20 isn't exactly $8-18 a fifth.
Cagey B: Most people don't have noses or mustaches on their forehead.
