I Was round a friends house a few days ago and we had decided to open up a bottle of wine noticing that we were lacking a corkscrew we went about trying other methods to get to our precious elixir. We tried using scissors and knives to cut or pull the cork out but these did not work, our next attempt was at smashing the top of the bottle off which resulted in a broken chopping board and a cut hand. In a final last ditch attempt we decided to push the cork inside the bottle.....Using a wooden spoon and the force of two dudes, we pushed as hard as we could down onto the cork which was slowly making its way inside the bottle.
Then the wine bottle freaking exploded !! Not a tame smash either literally exploded, sent shards of splintered glass to a wide area of the room. It was unexpected to say the least (although predicted by Mike). Needless to say we didnt get to have any wine. So we celebrated the event with some champagne instead.
