    Wal-Mart announced that, sometime in 2008, it will begin offering customers a new discount item --- Wal-Mart's own brand of wine. The world's largest retail chain is teaming up with Ernest & Julio Gallo Winery of California to produce the spirits at an affordable price, in the $2 - $5 ! range. Wine connoisseurs may not be inclined to put a bottle of Wal-Mart brand into their shopping carts, but "there is a market for inexpensive wine," said Kathy Micken, professor of marketing at University of Arkansas, Bentonville.

    "But the right name is important."

    Customer surveys were conducted to determine the most attractive name for the Wal-Mart wine brand. The top surveyed names in order of popularity were:

    10. Chateau Traileur Parc
    9. White Trashfindel
    8. Big Red Gulp
    7. World Championship Riesling
    6. NASCARbernet
    5. Chef Boyardeaux
    4. Peanut Noir
    3. I Can't Believe it's not Vinegar
    2. Grape Expectations
    1. Nasti Spumante

    The beauty of Wal-Mart wine is that it can be served with either white meat (Possum) or red meat (Squirrel)

    P.S. Don't bother writing back that this is a hoax.
    I know possum is not a white meat!

    Nice! While you're picking up the wine, make sure you pick plenty of the perfect vessel for such fine grape!
