Humorous whisky quotesFebruary 22nd, 2009
I think we could all use a good laugh right now, with all the doom and gloom going on around us.
Two weeks ago my family spent a few days in Miami warming our bones and relaxing a bit. While we were down there, the Miami Boat Show was going on. One of our friends sells boats and was down there for the show. He offered to take out in one of his company’s demo boats. It was a beautiful day, so we took him up on his offer.
While we were out on the boat, we started talking with the captain who was running the boat. Eventually he found out we publish a whisky magazine. I asked him if he drinks whisky and he nodded yes. He hesitated for a brief moment and then replied:
The last time I turned down a whisky, I didn’t understand the question.
I thought that was pretty funny. Then, later on, as we were bringing the boat back into the dock, we got to talking about whisky again, when he came up with this one:
The last time I drank whisky, I started returning things I never stole.
We liked that one too! Some famous writer or poet probably came up with these quotes. I can’t imagine they were his original sayings, but I enjoyed them nonetheless.
So, how about you? Do you have a humorous whisky quote you would like to share with us, and perhaps brighten up our day a little?
