Two Buck Chuck July 13, 2007

Two Buck Chuck is an alcoholic beverage (sounds cooler). It’s a wine which is actually a product of bad-ass bacteria shitting and vomiting and dieing in their own vomit (seriously, read more info if you wanna know that). So, this wine won in a contest and stuff. I don’t care.

Now, I thought – is Chuck going to be on the 2 bucks? Or is he going to roundhouse kick it? Ok, that doesn’t make sense. Anyway.

On a totally different note, do you know where dollar came from? From Joahimstaler which is the Valley of Joahim where they used to manufacture money. It later became just taler, then the Dannish used daler and the Anglophones thought it was too weird for them and they switched to dollar. Bizzare.  Buck by the way might come from bucksin which means something like “dear fur” (not as dear like dear but dear as animal). Uhh.
