Ya feel me DOGG?

from the "I tell the truth and I know what I’m talking about" department

In an amazing turnabout, the European Community has decided to immediately suspend the integration of Italian wine appellations into the PDO (Protected Designations of Origin) system. Last minute negotiations between the EU and Veneto President Luca Zaia have been reported and there appears to have been an 11th hour change. Reports have it that actor and record producer Cordozar Calvin Broadus, a.k.a. Snoop Dogg and President Zaia have formed a promotion company in the Veneto to realign Italian wines to fit a "more youthful and energetic" profile. The designation will immediately known as D.O.G.G. and the first designees, 13 of them, will receive the highly coveted denominations at a ceremony on Asolo on November 31, 2010.


The first wines so designated will be:

Toscana
Mastino di Scanzano
Fetchicaia
Bullgheri

Emilia-Romagna
Pugadebit di Romagna
Lambarksco

Piemonte
Baubauesco “Montefido”
Barketto d'Aqui

Campania
Fleano da Avellino
Fangina

Pug-lia
Scoopertino

Lombardia
Franciapoodle

Friuli
Picolitter

Trentino-Alpo Adige
Teroldogo

A viral write in campaign has been raging on the Facebook Social Network and tensions have been high.

An unusually calm Zaia made a joint statement with Snoop Dog:
“We will dizzle our best bizzle to get Italian wine wizzle back on shizzle track and in the hizzle hearts of young urbizzle Amerikizzles.”

More details as they break…

Will they be in a circle sniffing in Asola and then start marking terrano?

Somehow, someway, Zaia keeps on coming up with funky assed shit, like every single day!

There are rumors that he is changing the DOP (that's PDO in Italian) into DOPE!
