Tip Toad Through the Tulips

When I first saw the top of this cork I couldn't help but sing "Tiptoe Through the Tulips". I guess this is because verbalizing the words results in the realization of "tip toad" as the homophonic past tense "tiptoed".





Once I looked again at the name of the wine, however, I realized that the "tip" on the cork is meant to be interpreted as a command.



Good thing I had a friend with whom to "tip the Toad Hollow" otherwise I might have become very tipsy.
