Two 10knot 2006 Atlantises and one Moonraker? What does that mean?

t means that a Moonraker is really rare, that’s what! Think about it. This place is willing to give you two lost cities before they’d even think about giving you a second Moonraker. That’s two whole bottles worth of Atlantis, each complete with layers of cassis, raspberries, and strawberries that merge vibrantly on the palate, before, of course, the violets appear and the olives roll in along with juicy red plum! That’s ridiculous!

And if Moonkrakers are rarer than Atlantis, what does that mean? It means that lunar farming is going to be a huge pain in the butt! The fact that you will have an easier time getting your hands on Atlantis, a city defined as “lost,” than a Moonraker means your moonfields are never getting tilled. Because even after searching all over, you might never find that perfect tool, with its wisp of mocha on the nose and a palate that shifts from blackberry to fig notes, with its touch of spice adding complexity reminiscent of old world savoriness and its flurry of red berry fruits and deep red plums swathed in soft tannins lingering on your palate.

And what does that mean? It means you should vote for me, Todd Kwigswort, for town supervisor. Because I understand the problems of tomorrow today!
