Actually I hear that you can break the neck off and then filter the wine through something (can't remember what -- coffee filter maybe) to prevent any slivers of glass.

But a better idea is to go buy a corkscrew.

Solid advice...I did this for a whole year because someone kept stealing [censored] from my house, including 2 corkscrews.

this was the best answer, pushing the cork in seems hackish. although so is buying wine and not having a corkscrew.

Or better yet, buying a few of the $1 plastic corkscrews that they sell in every liqour store, and keeping them in the house?
