You know the excellent Thunder Rocks cover of "What's the Word" where they sing

"What's the word, Thunderbird, what's that joy, NATURE BOY!"

Naturally, I am familiar with Thunderbird wine, but I never could figure out what the second part meant.

Well, there I was one day listening to Ichiban, and Frantic Ernie Durham was pitching a cheap wine called... "NATURE BOY" !!! BINGO !!!!

Thunder Rocks - What's the Word

Another Ichiban favorite, The Casual-Aires Featuring Maurice Simon - (What's the Word) Thunderbird

What's the price ? Thirty twice ! 

But for different versions of the song, as well as a great wino line that I hope to use one day, I can't do better than The Hound, in his blog !!!

Bottoms up !!!
