Haughty Frogs Exposed as Cheap Wine Guzzlers

Beaujolais, Baby!
 
If I get drunk enough I will peel a skin strip from your arm, shoulder-to-wrist with an Oxo brand vegi peeler, and then crumple it up in a ball and wipe my ass with it.

Far from the refined, cultured, expensive wine drinking snobs they like to portray themselves as, the French are actually a nation of cheap, off the shelf wine buyers, according to the results of a new study on wine purchasing habits.

The study, conducted by the SECODIP research firm, found that not only does the average Frenchie prefer cheap, fortified wine over the select brands that made their country famous, but that most Frogs are only willing to pay a dollar or two for a bottle of wine, which means they're buying up the equivalent of Boone's Farm or Night Train Express in droves.

The study also indicated that Frenchies everywhere are regressing into the role of Continental rednecks at an alarming rate. Currently, 65% of French wine consumers buy their hootch from supermarkets, compared to just 39% only nine years ago. The average supermarket price for wine in France is 16 francs, or just $2.50, making the American thirst for box wines like Gallo and Franzia seem positively elitist in comparison.

Haw haw, Frenchies are big slobs!

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
