Today's Sign Of The Apocalypse

Douchebags of the world rejoice! You can have your ugly and drink it, too.


The best part is that I learned of this product when I saw it for sale at Whole Foods, a chain that conspicuously cultivates an air of snooty distinction. "Please enjoy our artisan cheeses, our organic quinoa salad, and our wine made by the guy who brought you $50 trucker hats."

I love wine. I love tattoos. But I don't love this. Probably because Ed Hardy is one of the world's biggest wankers. I'm guessing it tastes like Essence of Pretentious Dickhead?

Does your Whole Foods smell like urine and unkempt bodies, too? Or is that a uniquely North Carolina phenomenon?

Trinity said...

I don't have an opinion on the Whole Foods side of things but I think that Ed Hardy is actually a 5 year old retarded kid with a pack of crayons and whatever he draws, they just slap on a polo and pop the collar.

Didn't I threaten to buy a bottle and bring it to your place? I'm pretty sure I did. Thanks a lot for not remembering my terribly unfunny attempts at annoying you!

words...words...words... said...

Red, I imagine if you said that to me I'd mentally shut off at that point, and have no recollection of the entire incident. So you may very well be right. Still, for the record, hot women are free to bring any brand of wine into my home at any time.

As for Ed Hardy, he's not so much a douche himself. He was a popular tattoo artist who sold the rights to reproduce his art to Christian Audigier, a hack French fashion designer and bon vivant. Audigier was responsible for the 90s Von Dutch fad, and when that collapsed he moved on to Ed Hardy. Hardy himself has been quoted as saying that the whole thing makes him feel like an ass and he wishes he had never signed the deal.

So....is this a recommendation or not? :)

I kind of dig Whole Foods stuff in general although it's on the expensive side sometimes, but that wine looks sort of....trying too hard. I'm more a Trader Joe's girl. God, I wish we had Trader Joe's up here.

I wonder what they suggest you serve with it? A bag of pork rinds would be my guess.

Soda and Candy said...

Ugh, it probably tastes like a mouthful of Axe.

I think I'll show up at your door on your next birthday wearing a trucker hat and a whipped cream bikini, holding a bottle of that wine and some organic quinoa salad. We'll pass the night by applying temporary tattoos and shooting cans out back.

Considering Ed Hardy was a student of Sailor Jerry, a very famous American tattoo artist who also has his own line of rum (he's dead, the rum is tasty), this doesn't surprise me at all. And I like his tattoos, too.

I'm going to assume that the point of your post is not that he's an ass but that WF is too snooty for a guy like him and it's odd they are selling his products.

You've been memed
