Ever not have a corkscrew?
You have to watch it - the guy doesn't speak
any english - but - you can tell what he is doing.

I never imagined. My corkscrew broke one night and I had to just push the cork in. Next time I'll try a shoe.

Last week I drove a 3" drywall screw into a cork and then pulled it out with a pair of pliers. Surely the shoe method would be preferable for polite company.

depends whose shoe it was. Kind of embarrasing to ask a guest for their shoe dont you think?

OH! I forgot you are in the "back woods" and you don't wear shoes?

I wonder if that's how the wino's open their bottles? Can't imagine them carrying around a cork screw. :ib

I tried the shoe method yesterday on a bottle of pear wine. Didn't work for me. Guess I don't have big feet.......and you know what they say about guys with big feet?

They need big shoes!
