Wimpy, Wimpy, Wino


"Silver-plated wine holder adds polish to your finest vintage or an everyday red or white. Opens easily for quick bottle replacement. 4"Dia. x 11.5"T. $50.00"

My eyes are bleeding. Are wine bottles really that cumbersome and heavy? Do they really need "polish"?

I'm surprised the folks at Horchow didn't claim something like: "Identical to those used in fine European restaurants" or "endorsed by the Pope."

I would love to be a fly on the wall when the drunken host or hostess tries to switch out the empty bottle for a new one. This is just another tragically designed "silver plated" piece of shit doomed to tarnish for eternity under the kitchen sink.
