    True, promoting a scarce product definitely reeks of elitism and obviousness. Would be a lot cooler if he chose to champion something everyone could get their hands on. Like, OGD... or better yet, Pinnacle cake flavored vodka.

    Yeah, the douchebags will get ya. Just imagine this reality show pitch... "It's Moonshiners meets Finding Bigfoot, we call it 'Dusty Hunters', produced by Ryan Seacrest." Then, we're all screwed.

    You fellas remember when during a live broad cast Julia Child pulled the Thanksgiving turkey out of the oven and dropped it on the floor? She calmly picked it up and remarked, "What the guests don't know won't hurt them", that woman had style.

    Compared to Miss Julia the Tonys and Guys of the World are mere posers.

    Turns out that anecdote is what the youngsters are calling "urban legend."

    Mrs. Child verified the story in an interview some years back.

    No idea, it was in one of the food magazines published prior to the internet, probably early 70s.
