At least it's a Merlot...

Jack: If they want to drink Merlot, we're drinking Merlot.
Miles Raymond: No, if anyone orders Merlot, I'm leaving. I am NOT drinking any ****ing Merlot!


Perhaps if it had been Jesus Juice merlot...

Ha, thanks for that. Funny movie, good memories and that just brought both back :)

Were I to care I would be slightly offended by all of those, but thankfully/sadly I don't care, so it's fine. I doubt I'll be buying it because it's a trend-setterr label, doubtfully a good taste :rolleyes:

I think it's cool. Jesus was partial to the odd wine or six. I've never understood the christians who say it's against their religion to drink when Jesus himself drank. It's so weird.

We had Duff beer here in Australia for a while, made by a brewery in South Australia. They got sued and shut down by the creators of The Simpsons and now the stuff is worth an absolute fortune.

Historically, at least in America, it was part of the reason for Prohibition - religion took on the vices of America and wine, beer, alcohol was anything but Jesus Juice - it was all the work of the other guy :D

I don't like the image because of the MJ reference. I think that might be crossing over the wrong lines for me and regardless on what it tastes like, I'd probably avoid buying a bottle.

I love the HeBrew Chosen Ale - that's classic :D

I keep forgetting you guys had prohibition. Rum was an official currency down here for a while.

nice! a liquid currency - but how would you know if it was watered down a bit, eh? :D

Can't even imagine what prohibition would be like. Saying that drink is the work of the devil is like saying guns kill people....but we don't need to go there

I find it funny as, well, you know. Jesus did turn water into wine, right?

Right behind you.
Reminds me of that family guy episode

Peter: (while drinking communal wine in church) "whoa is this really the blood of Christ?"
Priest: "Yes."
Peter: "Wow, that guy must've been wasted"


Odd that as a Christian, I find this to be less offensive than Jesus Juice. But I can see the humor in both :)

I could be wrong here, but I have been told... back in the day - dudes like Jesus drank wine 'cause it was healthier than the water available. So really JC had to drink the stuff (Funny 'cause I had an uncle who had to drink the stuff too, Jesus went to heaven, and my uncle goes to meetings).

Thanks for that, I forgot about that one! Ah, good old Family Guy....

Maybe it's because I'm desensitized and not easily offended, but I find this absolutely hilarious. Where can I buy some? :D

Damn it, it's 6:15am and all this wine talk makes me want to go open another bottle of Pinot.

I'm not an alcoholic, they go to meetings.

:D Let's go hang in Montreal and drink Jesus Juice until we fall into the gutter! Doesn't that sound fun? :)
Why can I picture us stumbling down the streets of old Montreal, each with bottles of clearly-marked Jesus Juice in our hands and being bastards to everybody, all too clearly? :D
