A MAN who was asked to taste the wine in a restaurant has managed to bullshit his way through it with great success.
Martin Bishop, who was on a date with Eleanor Shaw, confirmed he knows as much about wine as most people know about theoretical physics.
Shaw said: “He was really knowledgeable. He swirled the wine around in the glass and sniffed it.
“And then he used a straw to blow bubbles in it, which isn’t something I’ve seen before but apparently it’s how you check the consistency of the texture.”
Bishop said: “The waiter asked if I wanted to taste the wine. I have no idea what that is even for.
“I used to think it was to see if you liked the wine or not, but apparently it’s not that, it’s for something else, and I’ve no idea what. I just know you’re supposed to stare at the wine, drink a tiny amount of it and then say something.
“Blowing the bubbles was improvised and risky. Thank god she’s a bit thick.”
