The Champagne Cork Parachute

Cork ParachuteWhat’s the perfect accompaniment to a nice, classy bottle of champagne? It’s a pink and grey, reusable champagne cork parachute obviously. Because, you know how annoying it is when you can’t find the cork. Fortunately, though, with the reusable cork parachute you never need worry about any nasty cork accidents apparently (if anybody has had a nasty cork accident, we’d really rather not hear details – and definitely no pictures).

To make it even classier, the parachute comes with its own rather fetching gold, plastic rocket container. As soon as the cork reaches adequate height and is ready to begin its apparently danger filled traverse back down to earth (or any object in the way of the earth), the parachute will deploy and the cork will flutter elegantly and, above all, safely back down to the ground.

Seriously, I don’t think you’re going to see these at the next wedding reception you visit and Lewis Hamilton is probably quite unlikely to crack open his winner’s bottle of bubbly having spent a minute attaching his parachute. But, if this is the kind of thing that floats your boat, or even if you do happen to have unmentionable (please) first hand experience of the nastiness of corks then you can pick one up for less than a fiver at IWOOT.
