Uh Oh: Wine On Amazon

" Inc. is planning an online marketplace for wine sales directly to consumers, said executives for several California wineries, marking the Seattle Web giant’s second foray into the business in three years."
—Oh, man, this is some seriously DEVIOUS strategy right here. You order a bunch of wine from Amazon, get drunk, and then order a bunch of other crap you would never buy when sober. Soon Jeff Bezos will own us all!

@deepomega I like how whenever I am moved to comment on something, you are always there as well! We clearly have very similar values and/or slacking-off-at-work patterns.

Goodbye, world outside my home, it was nice knowing you!

I still need something to drink while I wait for UPS.

re: drunk Amazoning…one of our out-of-town friends had a birthday recently, & a few days later a mysterious package arrived at our home via Amazon, containing a fake poo & a note reading "HAHAHA IT'S STILL MY BIRTHDAY MOTHERFUCKERS!!!!!!" he had no memory of ordering it, & now I desperately want drunk-reverse-birthday-gift-buying to become a Thing.
