That's really interesting, but I've always just used a screwdriver and pushed the cork into the bottle the times I've been without a corkscrew.

Leave it to the French to sort out how to open a bottle of wine with a shoe.

Verrrrry interesting, lol, but don't think I'll be trying that any day soon. Though I did just watch a couple of enterprising friends improvise a corkscrew with a drywall nail and a pair of pliers this weekend. Worked like a charm!

That is freaking amazing! I must try it. But since I don't know French, I'm concerned that as he was talking during the demonstration, he may have said something really important, like "if you use a women's shoe, it will explode" or "this only works with this one brand and vintage" or "this is a cork I removed and re-inserted a few hours ago" or "beware, I'm magic."
