    What kind of flavoring? I mean - they might could argue they had improved it

    Re: Operation Swill

    Seeeee, This is why I've always said it's so much better to buy new, full, unopened bottles of whatever high-end spirit you wish, take 'em HOME to dump 'em; then, refill 'em with your own swill, where the cleanliness and purity of your own rubbing alcohol can be trusted!
    Happy bar-hopping to all the poor fools who do that sort of thing, I guess.
    In all seriousness; I've always wondered what would prevent someone from 'stretching' their high-end liquors with some lower priced spirit; other than a moral compass... So Rare to find one of those these days.

    Oops, Sorry Gary. I see you stepped right up early!

    That was lobbed nice and slow, right over the plate

    I'm more concerned by Richnimrod's remark . . . I've always wondered why he's so eager to serve me his "good stuff", when it never tastes nearly as good as I recall?

    29 Establishments in NJ busted for scamming customers

    This is messed up. I don't like scotch, but I think I could tell if it was rubbing alcohol.

    You can trust my swill more than you can trust their swill, and you can trust me on that.

    Operation Swill

    Perhaps a new reality show named "the Jersey Swill" is in the pipeline now?
