As a firm believer in the notion that wine, like life itself, should not be taken terribly seriously, I am a sucker for anyone who can provide flippancy, tomfoolery and especially biting wit on the topic. Two fabulous recent examples via the Interwebs:
• My favorite network sitcom, “30 Rock,” recently had a skewering send-up of a couple of its characters and fermented grape juice. Stellar blogger Dr. Vino has more.
• The inimitable, insanely hilarious Hosemaster of Wine is back blogging after a way-too-long hiatus. Do not even remotely consider taking a sip of anything while reading his two-part series on “Parkerstein,” here and here. His more recent stuff is also obscenely funny, and occasionally funnily obscene.
