Tipsy Orion

Stumble Upon Toolbar

The other day I walked into a local wine store and noticed the "Orion" brand of Port and Sherry. I immediately noticed that a few things were not right with our mythic hero of old.  Above is a photo of the label contrasted with a real photo of Orion.

Firstly, his left foot (Rigel) is out of place. His belt is too loose (from too much Turkey dinner perhaps). In fact, it's right out to his bow! And he seems to be having an outbreak of some sort around his right shoulder (Beteleguese).  I expect the poor fellow will fall flat on his face.

BTW. It's that time of year again as Orion returns to the evening sky.
