    Default Help with labeling. ( Humor )

    My name is Larry and my no good Brotherinlaw is Scott. This year I would like to label the pints or quarts of syrup we give to family and friends.
    Seeing that I own the land, equipment and building I thought my name should come first and his second. Thus Larott's Syrup. Nice sounding Canadian name for a couple of guys from Wisconsin making Maple Syrup. But....... I could never do all the syruping without his help as he is there almost every step of the way, so I could put his name first and mine second. Thus that gives us Scary Syrup. Your votes will be the deciding factor.
    Thanks, Trapper

    I chuckled at the "no good brother inlaw" part! I'd try to get that on it somehow. Well, that is as long as it does not start a Hatfield & McCoy type affair, lol.

    Twisted, that's what I originally was going to post but I figured nobody other than people from Wisconsin or Michigan would understand. LOL

    If this is going to just friends and family, they already know who you are so why not call your syrup ( LARRY & SCOTTS) pure maple syrup? Also your name is first! If you sell it the name of the person reasonable for it needs to be on jug by law! ( Name ,address, and Phone number ) that wouldbe on a tag of yours on jugs some were ! pretty much saying who the real owner is! Just a thought.

    LOL, I would never sell it. It costs me $500 worth of firewood and beer to produce $400 worth of syrup if you know what I mean!
