Wine Tasting- A Special Skill

At a wine merchant’s warehouse the regular taster died, and the director started looking for a quality replacement to hire.
A retired Chief Petty Officer, drunk and with a ragged dirty look, came to apply for the position. The director wondered how to send him away.
The merchant gave him a glass of wine to taste.
The old Chief tried it and said, “It’s a Muscat three years old, grown on a north slope, matured in steel containers. Low grade but acceptable.”
“That’s correct,” said the boss, looking at his secretary, somewhat surprised. “Here’s another glass, what do you make of this, please?”
“It’s a cabernet, eight years old, south-western slope, oak barrels, matured at eight degrees. I think it requires three more years for finest results.”
“Absolutely correct.” This time the director was really taken aback. “A third glass.”
The tipsy old salt tried a little and calmly said, ‘‘It’s a pinot blanc champagne, high grade and exclusive.’’
The director was astonished. This time he winked at his secretary to suggest something. She left the room and came back in with a glass of urine.
The old Navy Chief tried it.
“Even though it’s not properly chilled, it’s a blonde, 26 years old, three months pregnant, and if I don’t get the job, I’ll name the father.”
