Gonet Champagne Launch and an obnoxious ignorant glutton

Today, I was very happy to see my good friend, Chantal Gonet on the occasion of the launch of her 2002 Blanc de Blancs Belemnita cuvee
of which there are only 2000 bottles. Her champagnes are good. I know as I have harvested the grapes in Le Mesnil sur Oger and helped to
make the champagne. Chantal is not only good looking but is one of the nciest and charming ladies I have ever met.
Canapes were served, one of which was Tasmanian Salmon with horseradish spiked cream cheese. It went well with the delicate "Belemnita" cuvee.
As I was enjoying the pairing of the champagne with the creamy slamon topped with a caper and fresh shallots, I was very amused to hear the asinine remark
of a particularly obnoxious, drunken, insecure, arrogant, horizontally and aesthetically challenged glutton who boasted, "Salmon are bisexual and swim up river!"
What an imbecile! As anyone who knows the reproductive cycle of the Salmonidae family, which includes trout, this is simply UNTRUE. I have made a special study of the Reproductive and Life Cycles of trout and salmon. In the world, it is always amusing to laugh at these pathetic twerps, especially when they go spouting thier mouths off about things they know nothing about. As Edith Piaf sang, "Je ne regrette rien!" Salud!
