The following has absolutely nothing to do with wine, except that it was sent to me by one of my favorite winemakers. I’m protecting his identity… just because… But, I’ve decided that this would be a great #FunnyFriday… So, get yourself a glass of wine and have a fun beginning to your weekend.

This comes from two math teachers with a combined total of 70 years experience. It has an indisputable mathematical logic. It also made me Laugh Out Loud. This is strictly a mathematical viewpoint..and it goes like this:

What does it mean to give MORE than 100%?

Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100 percent? We’ve all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give over 100 percent.

How about achieving 103 percent?

What makes up 100 percent in life?

Here’s a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these questions:


A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z is represented as:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26



8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 =98%



11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 =96%

But ,


1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 =100%



2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 =103%

AND, look how far ass kissing will take you.


1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7 = 118%

So, one can conclude with mathematical certainty, that while Hard work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, it’s the Bullshit and Ass Kissing that will put you over the top.

Irreverent? Yeah.

Funny? Yeah.

Can we laugh at ourselves in wine country? I am right now…
