    Zum Wohl. Quite literally "To Health". The winner will be the healthiest drunk in town!

  • Ian Dalziel,

    Low humz and peach thrills...
    So there's a rad new obstler to swallow on the block...
    it's a must you say...
    and we're to take the piss but luckily
    ' it’s not going to flood our stream'

    :- )

    What no Peach!
    Only Plum, Feijoa and some fruit called Natural?


    Bar plum plug!
    and what about us unsweet, if not tart, non-tweeters?
    the tyranny of technology wins again!

    #zumwohl Hark, no low humz but a clarion call for sliver wits to bottle or kirsch the ruling classes...

    (Interesting to note that Mr D Farrar was a child alcoholic/imbiber)

  • Steve Barnes,

    This is so weird, I had a dream about Schnapps last night.
    Well, not just about Shnapps, I fought a God and the God won.
    But what about the guy's name "Ulf Fuhrer"?
    I think I have one thing to add, Ulf, do you think it will be a hit, le shnapps?

    I also dreamed about Labour willing the Election ;-)

    Well done for securing some advertising revenue!

    It's a bit ballsy of them to lay claim to being the first NZ produced schnapps though. There's a reasonably well-known producer in Tauranga that has been distilling excellent schnapps for a decade now. Just saying ...

  • Russell Brown,

    A catch-up of top tweets:

    Yesterday’s winner was:

    @kebabette: Guyon: n. slang The physical manifestation of political excitement. As in Leonard Cohen song “Don’t go home with your guy-on” #zumwohl

    Top contenders:

    @kaupapa: Mass poisoning for those playing the “actually” drinking game #johnkey #votenz #zumwohl

    @rorymccourt: Sean Fitzpatrick from Liberterianz spends 3 minutes showing the audience how to find their idealogical G-spot #tawadebate #nzvotes #zumwohl

    @Lol_Nats: If I had a swig of booze for every time John Key said actually, I’d be more drunk than I already am now #zumwohl #nzvotes

    @N_BenWilson_Z: Future Investment Fund. Because we don’t know what assets we want, but we do know that we don’t want the assets we have! #votenz #zumwohl

    Feel kinda bad I couldn't bust out a bottle for Ben and Sacha too. It’ll happen.

    Honoured to be noted - thought the subject matter might cause some pause :)

    Nah. We seem to have a liberal brief :-)

    Also happy to be noted. I thought my effort lacked punch, and didn't hold too much hope. This 140 character business is taking some getting used to.

    But I am coming around to Twitter. It's good for joking around, and a continual stream of interesting links.
