Sip Softly and Carry a Big Corkscrew

Today’s funny is a takeoff from President Theodore Roosevelt’s “speak softly and carry a big stick.”


As a huge supporter of Oregon and Washington wine, I speak in a rational and soft manner, but carry a big corkscrew to open some bottles and prove my point.

Roosevelt used the phrase to describe the Monroe Doctrine, which said that “further efforts by European nations to colonize land or interfere with states in North or South America would be viewed as acts of aggression requiring U.S. intervention” – from Wikipedia.

Roosevelt thought the saying was from West Africa,but there’s no proof that’s the case.

Support Oregon and Washington wine – carry that corkscrew, and a bottle of wine, and show them what we’re made of!
