Esau

Eeeewweee!!!

They're actually drinking the wine that they're dipped in!!!! Ack!!! This brings new meaning to the word "bodily fluids"!

This must be Realist's worst nightmare, considering Realist's obsessive nature with hygiene!

Though, in this case, I would be as severely opposed!

Tim J.

What a bunch of winers!

st. michael

Somebody cut the cheese!

Curious

Archbishop Milingo announced a new revision to his Mass this week which promises to be a "fully immersive Eucharistic experience". Reverend Moon has heartily endorsed the reform.

Curious

"Sounds kinda sticky" (for the Veggie Tales followers out there)

Tim M.

"... and for the first course, don't forget to shower off first before you dive into the chocolate pudding filled swimming pool."

John E

An austere unfiltered "full-bodied" wine with a warm salty finish.

HokiePundit

Despite being enough to convince Pharoah, Hotep and Huy's effort to replicate the turning of the Nile into blood was seen as a mere fake by other observers.

John E

Whenever I ask them where the bathroom is all they do is lift up their glasses and say "koko desu!". I guess I'll keep drinking till I find out.

Nobody puts new wine into old wineskins,
but you can come put your old skin in our new wine!

JM

Perhaps it's their interpretation of the "Red River".

Exodus 7:17 This is what the LORD says: By this you will know that I am the LORD : With the staff that is in my hand I will strike the water of the Nile, and it will be changed into blood.

Suzanne

Bottoms Up!

J.R. Stoodley

Fortunately the wine in the glasses looks darker than the wine they are bathing in, so I don't think it is the same.

I am rather disturbed by the thought of if that wine was consecrated. Washed in the blood of the Lamb anyone? Here's to hopeing no wacko liberal reads this and thinks it is actually a good idea.

Ed Peters

How's this? "A bunch of stupid people get a pool full of wine. How stupid."

Esau

Too late -- Mahoney is already considering it! ;^)

I will NOT swim in Merlot!

patrick

Here's another:
'Look at all my trials and tribulations
Sinking in a gentle pool of wine
Don't disturb me now I can see the answers
Till this evening is this morning life is fine.'

I have a feeling it's just colored water...

Then again, maybe I'm just seeing things through rosé-colored glasses...

Jeff Miller

Jesus surprises and delights a wedding party at Cana, Japan.

patrick

As I'm in Japan, I'd love to see that picture. I think I'd just wait for Jesus to multiply ramen or sashimi to feed 5000 people who were stranded on trains or to walk on top of Tokyo Bay.

Old Zhou

Don't drink the white wine.

Maureen

Honey, I Shrunk the Wine Tasting.

Starring Esther Williams and Johnny Weissmuller in the dramatic new musical, When It's Floodtime in Napa!

JohnD

This wine has a flavor of peach, honey, and... chlorine.

SIGNS NEEDED:

"BEWARE OF THE WARM SPOTS IN THE WINE!"

"WELCOME TO OUR INOT NOIR, NOTICE THERE'S NO 'P'"!

chris-2-4

OR IS IT...

"WELCOME TO OUR PEE NO NOIR!"

POURQUOI VOUS SPLASHEZ MOI AVEC RED WINE S'IL VOUS PLAIT?

Paul Barnes

Heaven?

That's probably the college student in me talking...

Esau

...Or Hell, if the folks were damned there for all eternity and had to suffer eternally, drinking the wine of their bodily fluids in saecula saeculorum!

Old Zhou

For those who are sceptics, it is real red wine in the spa.

This is one of the Yunessun amusement spas in Hakone, about 75 km south of Tokyo.

You can enjoy a dip in the wine spa for $3,500 Yen (about $30).

That price will also get you into the Green Tea spa and the Coffee spa.

What, no Warm Maple Syrup spa?

Esau

Thanks, Old Zhou!

Yet, the thought that this is actually real doesn't bring any comfort; in fact, it makes it even more gross -- to think that people would actually pay $3,500 yen for what could potentially be contaminated with urine (among other things) doesn't seem all that inviting!

I mean, that's like paying money to drink off of someone's toilet bowl! Double Eeeeewwweee!

Fr. Stephanos, O.S.B.

At the Cana Wedding, after Jesus changed the six jars of purification water into wine, the guests decided they still needed that bath anyway....

David Frizell's wife finally hired a wino to decorate their home, including the backyard.

Banzai Cabernet.

Margaret

Eeeeewwww...

joe

"Officer, honest, I split the bottle of wine with ten friends, how drunk could I be?" Buuuuuuurp!

Puzzled

What a terrible waste, Old Zhou.

Francis DS

Bottoms Up!

:-) :-) Please, no!

Mr. Frizz

This isn't very funny, but it made me think of ..

I'm goin', I'm goin' where the water tastes like wine.
Well, I'm goin' where the water tastes like wine.
You can jump in the water and stay drunk all the time.

Anyway, it looks like they're having more fun than I usually do of a weekend, these days ..

"I thought you said this wine was dry?"

Georgette

"I thought you said this wine was dry?"

"I did...You don't see anybody using towels, do you?"

patrick

I doubt they'd urinate on the pool. Japanese are usually cleanliness-loving people. You're not even allowed to bathe in a tub if you didn't wash yourself first!

patrick

I suddenly thought whatif they had a Green Tea spa, Miso soup spa, Ramen broth Spa and a Pool of Sake?

Realist

Holy Wine Fonts? Probably somewhat more sanitary than the current practice. Do flu/cold viruses thrive in wine? Maybe Holy Gin or Holy Vodka Fonts would be a better choice?

Michael

When the priest says for all, that is a lot of wine you are talking about.

tokyo jane

They are not drinking the bath water its Beaujolais Nouveau wine, and while the bath water has some wine mixed in they arent that stupid to drink it.

I have been there, no free wine at that time though, and it is a fun place. It is the only hotspring in Japan that I know of where you can wear your bathing suit, otherwise you're nude and separatd by gender. This way you can go with friends/family of the opposite sex and have fun trying the 20+ differnt baths such as wine, coffee, rose, baths made of different woods and so on.

Thats said my caption would be either
"kampai" (cheers)
or
"kami ni kansha" (thanks be to God!)

patrick

in older baths in Japan, segregation between gender was almost nonexistent.
But seriously why would people bathe in liquor?

Rye Whiskey, Rye Whiskey I cry
If I don't get rye whiskey, I'll live 'til I die.
If the ocean was whiskey and I was a duck,
I'd dive to the bottom, and never come up.
Old song often performed by the late Tex Ritter

Kris

You think the wine pool is bad, you should see their cigar bar...talk about second hand smoke!

Maureen

"But seriously why would people bathe in liquor?"

Because it's there.

Actually, a nice heated and diluted bath of wine probably would be kinda pleasant. But first, I'd have to mull it over. :)

NW

New members of Congress enjoy freshman orientation.

Laura

Anyone else notice the little kid?!

joe

Wine? not impressive.

A pool of Jose Cuervo, now that's impressive.

bill912

Just don't light a match near it, Joe.

Sylvia

Anyone else notice the little kid?!

^^ My first thoughts exactly!

Fairy

Why drink it when you can swim in it?
