1)A long-winded method is to freeze the wine so that it expands enough to push the cork half way out. Now pull the cork out, and stand the wine in warm water until it reaches a pleasing temparature.

2) A medium sized screw, a screwdrive and a pair of pliers works, believe it or not.

simple

put the penny on the cork, roll up a couple of cards to make a sturdy tube and use the side of the deck to drive the cork into the bottle. then report back to us if the wine was good. if you fail hang yourself with the floss as you are of no use to the world

[/ QUOTE ]

not sure if this would work, wouldnt the pressure built up in the bottle prevent this

edit: if you have a pair of cutco kitchen shears -- maybe other kinds will work, havent seen it though ---- you can trim around the outer edge of the penny and it will form something very similar to a corkscrew

smash the bottle inside a large bucket. Filter the liquid out using a coffee filter.

(*that may or may not be a stupid idea and it may or may not require hospitalisation during the breakage of the bottle or possibily during the drinkage of the wine)
