Why are we stabbing wine?

They lacked a corkscrew, and I threw the suggestion out to push the cork into the bottle, and then they tried doing it with a steak knife ... and things went downhill. I did ultimately get the cork in without making too much of a mess, though.

He started it.

Take a piece of string, soak it in alcohol, and tie it tight around the neck of the bottle, then light it on fire. Let it burn for a minute or two, then dunk it in ice water and cleanly snap off the neck, and you should get a clean break. You may get some ground glass in your wine, but that's what makes you a man. A Batman. That's how you get the voice.

I once read a book in which a man is murdered by being feed ground glass in his food. It was horrible, and I am terrified of eating any glass now. So call me a sissy boy, but I would not want to do that.

Sissy boy.

Assless red fluffy chaps and frilly panties ain't "normal".

Depends on the crowd you roll with, I guess.

True that. In the crowd I roll with, they're commonplace enough that we've noticed that "assless chaps" is a tautology, so we've taken to calling pants "assful pants" to at least be consistent.

Better yet, take off your shoe but the bottle in your shoe, with the base of the bottle at the heel. Bang bottle against a wall repeatedly and the cork will push out.

This method only has the risk of lacerations on the outside of your body instead of inside.

I read that too, but it turns out it doesn't work like that. Ground glass is relatively harmless, if somewhat bland.

It's a trap so you'll eat Rallick's ground glass souffle unsuspecting of the horrors it will release within. Not from the glass. He uses a LOT of cumin.

What's wrong with cumin?

There's a severe lack of pictures to make fun of being posted!

This arrived today! I don't usually wear t-shirts but I had to make an exception for a Union Jack made of TARDISs, obviously.
