“Someone please call 9 Wine Wine”

"Someone please call 9 Wine Wine”—a wine joke on a “911” emergency call—is a saying that has been printed on many images. “DIAL 9-WINE-WINE: When in pain, call the local liquor store” was printed in the Toronto (ON) Star on February 19, 1994. “I need wine. Someone please call rescue 9 - wine - wine!” was posted on Twitter by Cyndi Reyes on October 1, 2009.

“Someone call 9 wine wine for @_TCOMP322 she’s got a broken spirit smile” was posted on Twitter by SupremeCYLR on October 27, 2011. “Somebody please call 9-wine-wine!” was posted on Twitter by Yanna Stoeva on May 9, 2014.

“Someone please call 9 Wine Wine” became popular in July 2018, probably because of an image. “Someone please call 9 Wine Wine!” was posted on Facebook on July 13, 2018. “Someone please call 9 WINE WINE” was posted on Twitter by Paola Tovar on July 19, 2018.
