I think we found our role model.
Wisconsin consumes more brandy than the other 49 states combined. When I was a kid, whenever I caught a cold, my mom used to give me a nip of brandy at bedtime. Many years later, I moved to Connecticut, went to a liiquor store and couldn’t find brandy. When I asked the clerk, he said, “What flavor?” They had all kinds of flavored brandy – apricot, peach, and so forth, but only one bottle of actual brandy.

That is just wrong. DBC Do Better Connecticut!
I’d kill everyone here for a drop of Brandy Old-Fashioned. Or I could go to the kitchen and just make one I suppose.
“So, which do you prefer? Brand X? Or BrandY?
Oh, you need to repeat the test? No problem, no problem, lemme just fill those glasses up for you, dear…”

I’m reminded of the story of the town fool. Whenever anyone would offer him the choice between a crumpled up dollar bill or a shiny new quarter he would always choose the quarter and everyone would laugh at him. One day a friend asked why he didn’t take the dollar so people wouldn’t laugh at him anymore and he replied, ‘yes, but they wouldn’t offer me money any more either”.

Now that’s a great way to finagle free booze.
I think we found Nanny Ogg.
I’d hang out with her.
I think I’ll have another go.
