“Who knows about African wines? A Somali, eh”

A “sommelier” is not necessarily from the African country of Somalia, but a pun was posted on the website PunGents.com on AUgust 19, 2013:

“Who knows about African wines? A Somali, eh.”


Wikipedia: Sommelier
A sommelier (/ˈsɒməljeɪ/ or /sʌməlˈjeɪ/; French pronunciation: ​[sɔməlje]), or wine steward, is a trained and knowledgeable wine professional, normally working in fine restaurants, who specializes in all aspects of wine service as well as wine and food pairing. The role in fine dining today is much more specialized and informed than that of a wine waiter. Sommeliers Australia state that the role is strategically on par with that of the chef de cuisine.
