Goon — A quick aside

300px-a_4_litre_cask_of_australian_red_wine.jpg

Goon is a box of crap wine. A two liter box usually goes for about $8-15, and it’s pretty much all I’ve been drinking in Australia. There are many fond admirers of the goon — there’s even a Facebook group dedicated to it. One of the most exciting goon activities is to “slap” the goon. The bag the wine comes in (inside the box) is eerily indestructible. You can slap it as hard and as many times as you’d like, and the thing will not break. Hence, many exciting nights of slapping the goon (which, I believe, also means “to drink”). One made it all the way through Fraser island, another lasted a good 5 days from Surf Camp to Byron Bay. Long live the goon!
