I’m a bit mind-boggled by a headline in the Telegraph:
Since when were scientists needed to figure this out? Haven’t we known this since oh, about half an hour after red wine was invented? For that matter, why not just say “alcohol” and be done with it?
Of course, it’s actually a serious study, and it does point out that “while red wine appears to be helpful, white wine, beer and spirits were not linked to higher fertility” . . . but the opportunity to poke fun at the scientists was irresistible! I wonder how many of us were sparked (you should pardon the expression) by one or both of our parents having an extra glass or two of wine, or something else suitably intoxicating? I suspect it might be more than we’d think . . .
