Lede, Don’t Follow

img_20161004_165541Don’t let the nascent oak in the nose fool you. Don’t let the SOS-pad you’ll have to take to your Riedels wear you down. Don’t fall for the steely dirt road winding up high through evergreens buried deep in rocky volcano. Don’t let the obliterating fruit JAM tickle your pink parts. What will keep you up at night is the tannin: nutty, round, rigorous I-can’t-feel-my-face towering mouth-numbing tannin. THIS. Boys and girls. THIS is the finest 13 I have had to date.

  1. I swear to God you are channeling my headlines! I usually write my headlines before my posts, and sometimes even before my visits. I had Cliff Lede on my list and had written this as a headline. I guess punsters will usually land on the same idea. Well done!
