wine and mccarthyism

Three guys & one girl are sitting at Table 60, and two of them are drinking wine. I offer them another glass.

GUY: Sure, I'll take another glass of this "dry white".

ME: Okay, it's albarino, by the way. (To the girl) Would you like another glass of red?

GIRL: Yes, please.

GUY: Oh, didn't you say you wanted to switch to the "dry white"?

GIRL: No, I'll have more of this -- it's "fruity and red."

GUY: You know, there was a time when you may have gotten kicked out of this country for possessing those qualities.

ME: Yes, there was. Sadly, it was in the not so distant past.

Cheers to the clever guy at Table 60.
