Listen to the Crockcast and see what you think. No matter what you conclude, the label “brotherhood” in this case certainly qualifies as a CROCK.

Sour Grapes = Crime Wine Documentary
It’s fun and profitable to pull one over on “The Man”. So, why not sell him cheap wine at million dollar price points? Katherine shares the story of Sour Grapes, a Crime Wine Documentary. In it a fraudster wine expert sells millions of dollars worth of fake wine to pretentious douchebags.
How did he do it? Labels! – talk about a Crock. This is the ultimate. The fraudster soaked off the original (cheap) labels and concocted extravagant fakes then glued the copies on to fool the wine snobs.
It’s undeniably a freaking blast to sit back and watch these guys burn their billions on garbage wine while they pontificate to the camera. Not to mention how much the fraudster looks like our very own MichaelJ. Check out his pic above for proof!
