Freaky Friday for Wine Bloggers (and Those Who Know Us)

In news that may leave some readers shaking their heads, but wine bloggers laughing out loud, there is a new wine blog in town.

Likened to The Onion but for wine bloggers by WineBiz radio's Randy Hall, and already eliciting many giggles among wine bloggers on Twitter, Wine-ing 2.0 delivers a healthy dose of perspective on the wine blogging world through its gentle, dead-on humor. With the subtitle "wine blogging is for losers," it is a timely reminder that we could all take ourselves a little less seriously.

Today's most recent story involved a sex sting operation that netted three well-known wine mascots: domaine547's budo-kun, the Little Penguin, and Yellowtail's kangaroo. In other news: Gary Vaynerchuk crashed Twitter out of sheer happiness and excessive tweets, Vinography's Alder Yarrow sprained his tongue and is recovering with a Cabernet Sauvignon, and Constellation has just announced a new brand of wine called 2x4. (mock label shown at right, from Wine-ing 2.0)

It's the end of a long week here in the blogosphere, and what better way to celebrate the last day of voting in the American Wine Blog Awards than with a glass of wine, a chuckle, and a little bit of Freaky Friday madness?

not sure if I was too late to vote for you or not, I clicked the link to your blog and came back here (but it's Saturday morning, so it might be wrapped up?). Good luck!
