Botcho homo

Posted in Junk for Jehovah


‘Some works remain unchanged over the years,’ croons Spanish winemaker Bodegas Ruberte. ‘But others are botched by a paintbrush-wieding, 81 year-old parishioner’ – no, hang on, that should read: ‘But others, such as Ecce Homo, are interpreted to write a new chapter in its history.’ Mmmm, much better.

The winemaker is cashing in on celebrating the restoration of the fresco of Jesus in Zaragoza, Spain, with this new wine, El Ecce Homo.

Perfect for communion tables everywhere. But hopefully not as tasteless as the restoration.

€9.25 from Bodegas Ruberte
