No Bottle Opener? You’re Not Screwed
Ever tried to be all romantic while wooing a babe by bringing a bottle of wine somewhere, only to realize you didn’t bring an opener? How embarrassing for you. Watch this video, and you won’t end up in the ER next time. How are those cuts healing, by the way?
There’s nothing more frustrating than a stubborn cork standing in between us and our good decisions juice. If it were beer, we’d struggle with that lighter trick for 15 minutes, slowly losing our confidence and end up breaking a tooth in a frustrated, overcompensatory attempt at masculinity. At least we have an open beer at the end of all that, though. Wine corks? They’re a bit tougher, and you don’t want to be the dude who gets little bits of cork in the wine — that dude is a jerk.
Thankfully, Household Hacker made this informative video that shows us seven different ways to get a cork out sans opener; one of them even involves getting to use a bike pump, which makes us feel a little like Wylie Coyote. Which we’re cool with.
We’d also like to congratulate them on their use of the sentence: “Pippity poppity, time to get sloppy.” Great work. Just really excellent.
