Electric Screwdriver Wine Bottle Opener
Alcohol and power-tools, baby: God's combo.
You wanna know what my problem with wine is? It isn't alcoholic enough. Sure if I take two bottles to the face the whole world starts spinning, but then what? Exactly, I almost drown in the bathtub. My neighbor already told me he's not dragging me out again, whether I promise to wear swim trunks or not. Still, maybe you like wine. Maybe you're classy. BWAHAHAHAHA!! *wiping tear* You -- classy.
The Bosch IXO Vino is a cordless screwdriver with a very special attachment. Specifically, a corkscrew that allows you to open wine bottles. That's right, you can pass this puppy off as a fancy wine opener. Otherwise, it's a pretty nice little screwdriver with a lithium-ion battery for cordless operation. Unfortunately the $63 price tag seems a bit salty for what it does.
You know, wine-related posts always remind me of the first time I ever went to a really fancy restaurant. Somebody suggested I order the table some wine, so I did, then the wine steward comes back and wants me to sniff this butt-plug. I THOUGHT THIS PLACE WAS SUPPOSED TO BE CLASSY AND THIS GUY'S BRINGING USED SEX TOYS TO OUR TABLE!! "Um, GW? That was the wine cork." You sure? It looked a little messy on one end.
Thanks to Etienne and Betsy, who break the tops off bottles so they have no choice but to drink the whole thing in one sitting. Now that's what I'm talkin' about!
