Mr. Meyer: “Doctor, you remember this strengthening solution you prescribed me yesterday?”

Doctor: “Yes, what’s the matter?”

Mr. Meyer: “I would like to use it but I can’t open the bottle!”

They're getting more inventive every day! LOL.  :D :D


Marianne Rooster

Lol, Rooster - the "mute" version seems to make sense: there must have been a very loud ouch ...



Pulling corks is for the hoi polloi.  :P

Virginia TheOtherTink

Well O'Tink that fellow has never lived in logging country...not only do we stir our coffee with our thumbs, but when we want a bottle of likker we just hit the neck on the counter top and drink from the jagged edge...

@ Viriginia,

At 1000 degrees below zero, no doubt:D  (a physically impossible temperature! )

But the logger's method would be frowned upon in a fancy French restaurant.  The sommelier would faint on the spot.  :O

Virginia TheOtherTink

Yes it's true, O'Tink...sadly most of the sommeliers who find themselves in SW Washington State end up fainting on whatever spot they may occupy...:silly: (sigh)

Marianne TheOtherTink

Lol, T(h)ink, and there are also less "civilised methods" to open a bottle of wine - or champagne - no need to blame the "loggers" - lol:


And I remember that we had, sometimes, problems with a crumbling cork ...

As to more radical methods:



TheOtherTink TheOtherTink

Marianne, I like the pot method the best.  :D

Marianne TheOtherTink

Lol, T(h)ink, I suppose that you are referring to the "coolest way" to open a bottle.


TheOtherTink TheOtherTink

No, I was referring the pot method of the ones offered in your clip, but I agree the coolest way is better.  :D

Marianne TheOtherTink

Lol, thank you, T(h)ink, I'll have to note the term "pot method".



Marianne, this is one of the major frustrations of remaining single all my life...whenever there is a difficult bottle or jar to open, I have to run out into the street and look for a person of the male persuasion to ask for help! :D  <3

@ Virginia,

Physics to the rescue: image

Marianne Virginia

Lol, Virginia, if no man was available, wasn't there any woman who could (or would) help? Or was asking for help subject to male persuasion?

(But I must admit that my aunt had, besides various activities, fruit and vegetable cultures, also a vine yard.)

Funny, sometimes, on our side, also men needed help to open a bottle - lol.

THAT is an impressive lid-opening enterprise, Other Tink!

TheOtherTink Virginia

Where there's a will, there's a way, Virginia.  :D
