There's an educational lesson buried in here. If you're trying to
learn how to open a bottle of wine without a corkscrew and you
mean business, you might be more interested in the
more technical but less fun version of the story.
It's me, honey.
A bottle of wine.
This is a good vintage.
How about it?
Just twist the cap...
It seems to have a cork.
No cork screw? I'm sad.
I'll use my teeth.
No, let's try some of these fancy tools.
A cheese grater!
Its working grate.
Surely my surgical forceps will succeed.
Eureka!! I knew the answer all along.
Follow me to the hall.
My sensei taught me an ancient technique...
using the back of a pen...
to push the cork...
into the bottle.
Victory is mine (with only minor injuries).
Indeed, this is a good vintage.
