The Great Playmobil Mutiny


I got pretty freaked out when I saw this on the Dreg’s Report, because it confirmed my suspicions that there are indeed spy cameras in Mutineer HQ. This is an exact replica of our old office at around 9 AM every day, right down to the Delong’s Wine Chart (which is awesome)…Bastards.

According to DelongWine.com, “The set includes miniature bottles, glassware and figures based on wine personalities Jancis Robinson, Andrea Immer Robinson, Gary Vaynerchuk and Robert M. Parker, Jr. in a relaxed wine bar setting. The details of the licensing deals are unclear, however, since none of the parties were willing to disclose terms.

Apparently people are pretty pissed about this, including the Wine and Spirits Wholesalers Association. The article continues to say, “The WSWA has gone so far as to propose legislation that would block interstate shipping of this toy. ‘We already have WSWA-friendly UPS drivers confiscating this item,’ added [Bruno] Ashwip.

The only question is, when will the special edition Playmobil “Wine Mutineer” come out? I’ll have a bottle of absinthe in one hand, my press credentials in the other, wearing a 3 piece suit with an ascot.

    Hey, Bruno Asswipe is a good friend of mine!

    You do realize you’re quoting an April Fools piece, right?

    A 19 day late April fools day joke…right on. If the blog would have been posted on April 1st everyone would have known it was a joke. Clever… I think? Hah
