Mental Health Break: Wine Reviews

The Summer 2011 edition of Lapham’s Quarterly covers about 4,000 years of food history, and every story contained within is a gem in its own right.

But Patton Oswalt’s wine reviews especially cracked me up.

My fave:  Cracking Crow Hill, Australian Shiraz

A binky wosgow of keezy plinkers, hoop-daddied for a ‘dillo’s wink and flappled in a pongo. Hints of sweet bashie, roasted wopabaggle, and frum-dipped mollys. A right chickamoo!

In one tidy volume, you get H.L. Mencken, Upton Sinclair, Marcel Proust, Henry David Thoreau, Charles Dickens, Homer, Petronius, Baudelaire, Evelyn Waugh, Beowulf, Nabokov, St. Augustine, Calvin Trillin, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Willa Cather … well, you get the idea.

Listen to an interview with Lewis Lapham here.
