Pass the corkscrew please…


"The stomach is the teacher of the arts and the dispenser of invention." ~ Aulus Persius Flaccus ~

Have you ever gone to a party or picnic and brought a bottle of wine only to discover that there is no corkscrew?

Other than trying to pry the cork out with a penknife and your teeth, you can switch to a can of beer and use the pull-tab, or you can open the wine bottle with your shoe.

And, I’m not talking about beating the bottle to death with the heel of your shoe; I’m suggesting you use the inside of the shoe. Not convinced – take a look below.

The following embedded video, from tvvn.org’s YouTube channel is entirely in French. It is nonetheless quite understandable because of the excellent accompanying demonstration.

This is guaranteed to be a conversation starter.

Now, will somebody please pass the cheese and crackers?
