“Is that you or the wine talking?” (joke)

A popular wine joke has a couple together, sharing wine. “I love you,” says the woman. “Is that you or the wine talking?” asks the man. “It’s me talking to the wine,” the woman replies.

The joke has been cited since at least 2010 and was on Twitter on March 16, 2011. “Is that you or the beer talking?” is a similar joke, usually with the sex roles reversed.
