Lawson, I'll Have Wine

Here is Lawson Little, a famous golfer back in the 1930s and 40s (this ad is from 1941). He looks a trifle uneasy, but please don't let that put you off. He is a fabulous host and if you were at one of his parties - let's pretend that we are, just for a moment - he would be hoping that you'd demand something to drink. Don't just stand there being polite and thirsty! Mr. Little's guests quickly learn that he appreciates them speaking up and saying - all together now! - "Lawson, I'll have wine."

Now, this ad implies that "next time you entertain at your home," you might be welcoming Lawson and his friends sportswriter Grantland Rice and painter Norman Rockwell - "and many another good host." Yes, even good hosts like to drop by someone else's place once in awhile. And when they do, they'll be saying "Make mine wine." Red wine is what they prefer, it looks like. Also Brie and Ritz crackers, although that is a little harder to discern.

Being a good host was more than handing over a glass of wine and a Ritz cracker, of course - then and now. A good web host will give you a place to hang out online - just like Lawson and his pals are hanging out, in the little picture (I love how Lawson never seems to socialize without his golf club). And a good host also sometimes offers you coupons that are just as tasty as a glass of Burgundy. Just savor this handy burstnet coupon 2013 and get a good deal on domain coupons for places like, Yahoo! and Network Solutions, among others. For example, how about 50% off on Yahoo web hosting (code: YWHBIGC50) or a Dreamhost-97 coupon (code: SAVEMAXNOW). You can pick whichever coupon code suits you best. And then you can raise a toast to all those savings - Lawson Little will be glad to top up your glass.

Replacement batteries and wooden barriers aside (ahem)... I think Lawson uses his golf club like shy kids use a teddy bear. How cute! And wine, who would turn down wine? Drink enough of it and you'll be able to tune out the golfing stories! 8-)
