The best part of any major housekeeping operation…

Is finding all the superfluous, stray, half-empty and out-of-date booze, and ‘cleaning it up’.

I’m all about sacrificing for my fambly.

Out-of-date booze must be consumed immediatly upon discovery.

I hope you survive.

They have seasonal sales on liquor in the UK where you can stock up at half price or something?

Looks like vodka, gin, wine and something called ‘spitfire’.

If you really want to make your cousin feel welcome, mix a bunch of that together and offer him a tall tumbler when he walks in the door. And have another tumbler of colored water that looks the same. Drink from THAT one yourself…

I’ve never had out of date booze. Anyway, some one sent me this: https://the-chicken-chick.com/chicken-mating-how-does-that-work/

Out of date booze? I didn’t know that was a thing. Never happens here.

That’s an impressive booze stash…almost as good as mine. I actually had to buy a big IKEA wardrobe to gather all my booze in one spot, instead of stashed in every corner.

Just pour it all into a trash can and mix it with red Kool Aid. I guess a punch bowl would work if you wanted to be all classy about it. In my younger days we used to call that Red Death, everybody just brought whatever alcohol was laying around and mixed it together.

It’s been said already but who knew booze could go bad.

I saw this doc on WWI where they excavated home made booze sent by families to their soldiers. I dont know if they tasted it but it looked good. The contents of one bottle was bright orange. At 100 years, it seemed to hold up well. 🙂

If anything, I expected to see a pantry full of baked beans.

“Out-of-date booze” is a sin. A venial sin to be sure, but a sin nevertheless.

That bottle of “Spitfire” has a crimped cap, so it must be something brewed. The name is either an homage to a noble aircraft or a warning not to drink it too fast.

@Ric Fan – ITYM “Beanz”

@Pupster – We used grape Kool-Aid and called it “Purple Jesus”

I see some nice bombers there:

Wychwood “King Goblin”
Shepherd Neame “Spitfire”

Also a case or so of something in cans.

Not enough resolution to identify anything else.

Helluva party-in-the-making!!…

…and a big-time hangover or two in the near-future, as well, no doubt…

Ric Fan – so they do it by rubbing buttholes? Ewww. I always figured roosters had something … some thing … under the feathers. But this is pretty primitive. So now I’m curious; are all birds built this way?

The cans are a soft lemonade mixer. The liquor can’t go off, naturally, but some of the beer (correctly identified by Rich Rostrom) is pretty elderly, and some of the wine is hopeless. One bottle of Chardonnay has gone a rich brown.

p.s. Uncle B said, “they’ll think we’re alcoholics!” and I said, “nah…alcoholics are the ones with zero full bottles.”

And what I expected to find – looking at the picture and 17 comments – was a bunch of people enclosing their mailing addresses and prepaid post links to ‘help’ you by giving you a place to ‘store’ those bottles of unconsumable old alcohol.

Nah, like sugar, the stuff never gets old.

In fact on NCIS last night (Mrs D is binge watching…again) Ducky samples some of the Cognac ( not to be confused with the low cal Japanese rubber food ) Napoleon drank at his coronation in 1802. The writers had the villain say “Napoleon drank this brandy at his coronation” and my brain said “Then I don’t want THAT! I’ll have some of the brandy from the same cask, but I don’t want the stuff HE DRANK – it’s not brandy any more!”

My suggestion that I didn’t post yesterday was to just do-your-cousin-in before he/she gets there, but I suppose you like him/her and that solution is right out. So you’ll have to carry on cleaning.

And Uncle B, she’s right there would BE no partially full bottles to take a photo of. Think of it as a mark of your years, collectors as it were.

I dunno but I think so. Have you ever seen a bird’s penis? Me, neither. You would have thought stoaty wd have informed us of this chicken quirk. I wonder what other secrets she is hiding?

I’m not a drinker… but if I were, I would seek out SPITFIRE!

Never occurred to me, does liquor have a “use by” date??

One other thought…

“I’m not drinking alone if the dog’s also in the house… right?”

Apparently ducks have a different system. No joke. Or was it geese. No I think it was ducks. Seems like the she parts are like mazes unless the he parts are from the same species variation to prevent, well, cross variational duck rape.

Recent studies have revealed that trans-sexual ducks can’t get dates though.

Yeah, I think it’s ducks. Something, something, six-foot-long penis shaped like a corkscrew. Or something.

Cousin is a she. We were close growing up, as I had all brothers (and far apart in age).

Right you are! And this illustrates the upside of intestinal parasites. You’re never alone!

Oh…now I get it.

I thought there was a rule I didn’t know about that discouraged one from drinking if you’re alone in the house with the dog.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
