What really always scares people as they’re about to give a toast, is the thought of popping someone’s eyeball out with the cork, as it’s violently expelled from the Champagne bottle. And although for the spectators this always adds an element of excitement (“Will that bitchy mother-in-law get it?”), there are those among us who might prefer to play it safe, and use the Cork Catcher.
To use it, simply place the device onto the bottle, press down firmly, then turn the bottle whilst holding the catcher in place. You still get the “theatre” and “pop” of opening your expensive bottle of bubbly – but without the risk to life and limb.
Though they may not know it, your partygoers will probably appreciate the trip to the ER you saved them with your ?20 investment.
