oh man, where do i sign up?

In honor of the lamentably hilarious death of owner of the Segway company, who piloted his self-balancing scooter off a cliff, I thought I'd mention a relevant Paris attraction I discovered in the course of unrelated research for this blog: Segway wine tours.

You know how Segways always seem out of place, no matter where they are? Just imagine a fleet of them steered by tipsy tourists, knocking over racks and bottles, breaking glasses, running over pedestrians... An experience no one could ever forget.

I'm seriously in awe of whoever thought of this. Also I just had a good idea for my next birthday party.


  1. I just love your blog...

  2. Sorry, dude... the owner of a company who had a Seway, not the owner of the Segway company.

  3. Dear Anonymous #2,

    If you have different information, I think your beef might be with the various news organisations of the world, rather than this wine blog. For example:

    (Reuters) - The British millionaire businessman who owns the firm Segway has been found dead at the bottom of a cliff with one of the two-wheeled electric scooters near his body, police said on Monday.

    I just work with what I'm given.

    Thanks for reading though!

  4. So when's this birthday party of yours? :)

  5. Not for a while. But let's hang before then! I owe you folks a superb dinner.
