Stick a Cork in it

Oh, sweet irony. You would expect a website like Wine Enthusiast to sell things like wine racks, corkscrews and glassware. But you wouldn't expect them to push something as ridiculous as this:


I really don't get this. At all.
The point of the Wine Glass Holder Necklace is, as you might expect, to allow you to keep your hands free at parties by "keeping your wine close at heart." (Yeah, I almost puked too.)

Who is that busy at a party that they need both hands free? I thought the whole point of holding a glass at a party was to avoid too much contact with people you don't care for. Now that your hands are free, people are going to try to hug you. Do you really want that?

But what I really want to know is: How will this look on a woman? And who will pick up the dry cleaning tab when her breasts inadvertently tilt the glass right into her cleavage and she ends up looking like Carrie? (at least from the chest down)


Keep your hands free at parties by keeping your wine close at heart! This clever little clip with adjustable strap holds a regular-size stemmed glass to your chest, giving you the freedom to snack and socialize as you sip! $24.95 [wine enthusiast]

That's only useful if you don't have any hands.
