Geez, some folks must have more money than sense. If I had a spare $27G sittin' around, I might be thinkin' about replacin' Sammy the Sequoia who ain't no spring chickin' with 115,000 miles, or maybe I would stash a few thousand away in my kids' college funds. Of course a VA-CAY to Australia would be the ultimate guilty pleasure for me, but I ain't got that chunk of change. However, Lyle Shellenberg, a retired businessman from Salem, Oregon, apparently does, and he chose to lay it all down on a 50 year old bottle of Glenfiddich Scotch. Dang, that shizz must be liquid gold to cost that much.
Mr. Shellenberg became one of only six people in the country to own this limited edition bottle. He says his ties to Glenfiddich go back 40 years when he toured the distillery in Scotland with his grandfather. I believe that was about the same time he started to grow that porn star mustache. Now Mr. Shellenberg did say he wanted to own something that no one else in the state would have. Of course if he slams that scotch himself he could have a $27,000 hangover. Not many folks can make that claim to fame fo' sho!!
Call me crazy, but somethin' tells me that an expensive hangover from drinkin' liquid gold ain't no different from a hangover on the cheap. Plus, Two Buck Chuck ain't so bad goin' down. I have a feelin' it's all 'bout the same comin' back up.
