@Lustig Andrei,
what about two dogs wine?

(as a gentleman, I'll not state what they are doing on the label...)

@Lustig Andrei,
I thought it was four feathers, but either way it was definately a brand. Probably still is, but who has shelf space for all of them.

@roger,
Yeah, maybe it was four, roger. It's so long ago I'm miscounting things here. And Ballantine Ale had the three-ring logo, like the Olympic logo but two rings shy.

The distillery's own website claims the potation is still available in Utah. Prob'ly just haven't caught up yet.

@Lustig Andrei,
I'm a little confused as to why Idaho has a problem. There is nothing here to suggest that the five wives are married to one man. Give this bottle to someone outside Idaho or Utah and ask them why five wives are making vodka and they'd probably laugh and say they got tired of their husbands spending their money to get it elsewhere. Why would anyone associate this with the LDS church?

@farmerman,
You're right.
There is no 'good' vodka.
There's vodka.
There's cheap vodka.
There's really cheap vodka.
There is no-good vodka.
Bad vodka.
Awful vodka.

Right. They could be five girlfriends, married to five different guys. I would suppose that one could assert that there is an "inside joke" happening, but it certainly is no reason to ban it.

Reminds me of the old saying, "He would see something dirty in the crotch of a tree."

@Lustig Andrei,
Funny when I saw the title here - I thought it would be five wives not necessarily married to the same man - just simply five married women.

So no not offensive.

@tsarstepan,
I love the oddball winery names - often times I buy just for that reason when I am giving a bottle of wine to some one.

@Linkat,
Good point, Linkat. Probably most people who are not LDS would think of it that way rather than assuming polygamy automatically.

My first thought when seeing the name was that it was made by (or named after) 5 women who were married.

Even after seeing it was made in Idaho, it wouldn't have occured to me.

I think people have too much time on their hands, and have to find stuff to bitch about.

@chai2,
Did you know there is such a word or very close to it?

Lobstrosities are bizarre creatures that live on the beaches of the Western Sea. They look like a cross between scorpions and giant lobsters measuring about four feet long, with sharp serrated beaks, and eyes on stalks.

It's all about the hidden messages:
What about the secret behind the name E.J. Korvettes ?

@Joe Nation,
My early life had been spent in the purwsuit of new vodka drink. I thik I was the first one to ever drink a Harvey Wallbanger . When I lived in Nawlins we used to go over to the quarter and drink these things called Hurricanes which contained grenadine, vodka and some other ****.
Everytime I drank a vodka drink I became a character from "Sweet Thursday" or "Cannery Row"

@Linkat,
Yes, and they say things like "Badink badunk, patink patunk, right before they bite off your trigger finger.

That's what they did to Roland Deschane in the 2nd book.

chai(maybe it wasn't his trigger finger, but it was definately a finger)tea
