 File under: Sublime Porte 

#1 We do, but Turkey is no longer an ally.

#2 Luxembourg

You know I used to drink that stuff

until my toe nails fell off one day.

Maybe that's what "Crémants" means

after all the label has toe nails all around

#3 A sociable beast is the Ottoman,
Half muscleman, half hippopotaman,
So call at his burrow
Come teatime tomorrow...
Though he'll probably let just your bottom in.

#5 You know I was engaged in light heartedness, per the above, Vin & Crémants is really Wine and Champagnes. The word Champagne can only be used by a region of France, to describe their sparkling wine, per EU law, so the Dutchy of Luxembourg came up with a law to describe their regional sparkling wine "Luxembourg Crémants"

My late wife and I used to enjoy drinking it at our Thanksgiving meal out with our, now departed, friends.

Somewhat expensive, but worth it...

give it a try, you will not be sorry,

The wheel of life only spins once,

go for it.

#7 God bless you, Snomoter -- though you wouldn't want to take that check to the bank -- and may you all be reunited -- over crėmant or Riunite, as the case may be -- at such time as pleases you.

#9 Going full devil's advocate...

Herr Schlosser, mit polish und Wasser,
Shines letters hot from the embosser.
"Since everyone whines,
We are changing the signs,
So I brighten the brass on this 'TOSSER.'"

#10 Without Turkey, we can't present Russia with two avenues of invasion. That's the whole reason they're in NATO in the first place.

#11 Just like that IV ID (Mech) that Turkey allowed to invade Iraq in the war. Oh, wait. They didn't

#12 What I heard in my head:
Without Russia, we can't present Turkey with two avenues of invasion.

#13 Like the next will be a ground war.
After a point of burning, firefighters call it a recovery, not a rescue.
