    BUT, Obamanation can teach you to whine…

  2. Crabby Old Bat says:

    That cork right there? You didn’t make that. Someone else made caused that to happen.

  3. Jimmy says:

    Harvey, sailors can’t cork their own wine bottle while ON LIBERTY.

  4. Iowa Jim says:

    That link was quite a corker!!

  5. CTCompromise says:

    One of my ancestors was from Cork..I’m pretty sure she was the hand punched, top quality sort.

    It took a real genius to look at a piece of bark like that and say, “You know? I think you could use something like this to plug the neck of a wine bottle!”

  7. Professor Hale says:

    The modern wine industry used plastic corks. They are superior to the natural ones and factories can produce as many as you like for pennies.

  8. Harvey says:

    @7 – True, although there’s a certain aesthetic pleasantness about natural corks. Plus their use and continued popularity indicates that civilization is still strong enough to support a luxury industry.

  9. Professor Hale says:

    I know what you mean. But there is no USB port on my Brother typwriter.

  10. Harvey says:

    @9 – Luddite! You need to spend the money and get a new Apple iYpewriter.

    Careful, though, it’s made out of glass and will shatter if you hit the keys too hard.
