"Hey yo, gimme a trailload a bitches, and a case a Ripple and I'm OUT."
"You better check yoself with that ripple...that shit'll make you go blind!"
There was a wine called Ripple in the 70s/80s that was sold in a green bottle. This was where the term originated, but it is no longer only used to describe Ripple brand wine. People who use the slang term "ripple" are probably old enough to remember the origin of the word, and are making a cultural reference.
Wife: Where did that bottle of wine go?
Husband: I tried some and it was awful. I dumped it down the drain.
Wife: Oh well, it was just ripple anyway.
Husband: Yeah, it was on sale at the supermarket.
/alternative to a dope slap.
Tom: "Hay, cool A's hat!"
Jon: "It's a Braves hat. You get ripples for that."
