That big instrument of Chef's (I am talking about the can opener, Jenise - wash your mind out with soap!) reminded me of something.
There are various yuppie have-to-have-the-best items out there and one of them is the table mounted several hundred buck crank operated fancy shmancy mega-corkscrew, in brass with bronze accents, costing as much as a bottle of Mouton.
I attended at a friend's place and lo and behold - his latest and proudest acquisition was one of these ridiculuous monstrosities.
I asked him if it would open any kind of bottle used for wine and he rambled on about how he had used it on halves, singles, magnums. I then told him I'd love to see it in action and pulled the bottle I'd brought out of the bag and handed it to him - an upwardly mobile excellent Aussie Cabernet - in a screw cap bottle.....
So mark my words - there will soon be a comparable apparatus decked out in golden finery for removing screw caps - jealous yuppies just gotta have them (and will restaurants be far behind?)
