    Was he/it some cartoon kind of cartoon character?

    I think that should be Marvin The Paranoid Android, a character from The Hitchikers Guide To The Galaxy.

    Ah, Kevin, thanks for that... I didn't really follow The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy that much. I only watched it occasionally.

    I can see where John is coming from now

    Default Chaps, if you fancy a top-notch Rioja...

    Well, I've just enjoyed a none too shabby bottle of Rioja from Tesco's 'Finest' range with some extra matured Welsh beef sirloin steak, griddled under charcoals, and served with a béarnaise sauce, green beans, sautéed mushrooms, 'proper' French Fries, and a side salad. Yum!

    The wine is called Vina Maria, and it's a 2002 Reserva. I'm buggered if I can remember how much it was, though... Probably just short of a tenner. But you can really taste the aged for (6 years), 'oaky' quality and rich tannins this wine has. It is also silky smooth with a ripe 'jammy' quality and the traditional vanilla notes associated with a fine Rioja. Slurp!

    Right, after a somewhat boozy lunch I'm off to chill out to some quality choons...

    Laterz!

    I was just going to extoll the virtues of 'Owd Rodger' (for it is he) 7.6% of the most amazing elixir ever... the wife treated me to a case of 12 from some internet emporium having come across a bottle or two on holiday, and I guess I'm about half way through the shipment.

    Adnams Broadside is great. Sainsbury's stock it, Tescos recently discontinued their stock...

    As a session ale I like Tesco's 3% 'Best Bitter'.

    Old Peculiar is a regular favourite.

    And Uley Old Spot on draught when I'm out in the country.

    Oh yes

    It was Owd Roger that nearly caused my death by alcohol as a student!

    Nowadays, however, as a sophisticated adult in responsible employment, I nearly kill myself with far posher drinks than that.

    Lately I've been trying many many Rosé wines, and whilst I love them all, I have found that some of them give me deadly heartburn. Typical for something pleasurable.

    You're not supposed to eat the cork, too. That's where you're going wrong mate
