News, but not the serious kind
Hey, who barfed on the president’s rug?
Blog Guy, I want some White House insider information. What do guests normally drink when they go to an Oval Office meeting?
Well, I’ve blown up a portion of a high-resolution photo released by the White House, and you can see a typical tray of drinks being passed around. I can try to guess what they are, unless you expect accuracy…
No, I expect virtually nothing from your blog.
Hey, thanks. Okay, that clear glass, I’m going to say that’s a good vodka, maybe Ketel One. Then let’s see, a couple of tumblers of a single malt Scotch, I think Laphroig. In-between, that red drink looks like a big shot of 40-year-old port.
Hard to tell, but I’m going with a Cordon Bleu cognac, for cautious guests who don’t want to look like they’re drinking alcohol in their Oval Office souvenir photo.
Blog Guy, what are you basing this on? Why do you think the most influential people on earth, sitting in the president’s office, would just be getting s**tfaced on expensive booze?
I’m just going by what I’d do if I were the president.
