Talking wine

A cartoon in the latest (June 8th/15th) New Yorker by Jason Adam Katzenstein:


It’s the wine talking is used to confess something you might not have said if you hadn’t drunk some wine. But it’s a formulaic expression, so it can be deployed in other ways, for instance to introduce talk about wine.

In the cartoon, the wine is literally talking.

I haven’t found much on the artist, but here’s a particularly silly cartoon of his from last year:


It’s all about confessions.
