These days a cup of coffee can cost more than a bottle of wine.
Which is why the “Buck Brothers” have become a household name.
4 Bucks is shorthand for Starbucks, given that the cost of a typical visit can run us $4.
2 Buck Chuck is the Charles Shaw wine that Trader Joe’s sells $2/bottle.
And I thought that was the whole family, but imagine my surprise when I discovered an errant “love child”.
Stick with me on this one for a minute while I try and explain.
In doing a simple image search on Google, looking for a picture of a Chas Shaw bottle of wine, I entered “2 Buck Chuck” into the search box.
Remember that Google is pretty smart, but it’s still just a computer. Anyway, the result of that search was … wait for it … 6-1/2″ Buck Chuck for Hardinge CNC Lathe, which is great if you work in a machine shop, but not so good in a wine bar!
And here we have a third Buck Brother, he looks to be a tall dude, over 6 feet. Actually 6 1/2. And Google picked him out because of the ‘2 Buck Chuck’ embedded in the description!
6-1/2“ Buck Chuck
As they say,
On the internet, nobody knows you’re a dog … or a Buck Chuck!
