“Good friends are like fine wine—that’s why I keep mine locked in the cellar”

American comedian Tim Hawkins tweeted on December 1, 2012:

“Good friends are like fine wine. That’s why I keep mine locked in the cellar.”

The joke quickly became very popular. “Good food, good friends, good wine, good times” is a related saying, but without the humor.

Great friends are like a fine wine, mostly because I keep both of those things locked in a cellar.
