Saturday Satire on Eco-Crap

Make you Fink on Friday, er Saturday

Question…

Do we really need this crap?

For the wine geek who has everything: the cork presenter

The Alessi cork presenter

Designed by graphic arts superstar Milton Glaser, Alessi’s new cork presenter is polished stainless steel and will set you back just $30.

Not for a casual meal at home, though.

This may be more appropriate for those engaged in a formal entertaining style. The Alessi cork presenter was, in fact, designed for Eleven Madison Park, the highly lauded New York City restaurant helmed by Daniel Humm who won Outstanding Chef at this year’s James Beard Awards. Outstanding service is one reason the restaurant did so well — in addition to Humm’s meticulously elegant American cooking.

Opinion:

The Alessi cork presenter!

A variation on the theme

What a load of utter crap!

We don’t need crap like this in the world.

I have eaten in plenty of posh restaurants around the world. The cork has always been presented on a washable cloth napkin, perfectly satisfactory.

Now some over-paid twerp has designed another cork presenter.

Raw materials, mining, manufacturing, electricity, packaging, advertising, transport…

All so the 1% can have a friggin’ stainless steel cork presenter!

I get so riled.

Here we are struggling to save the planet, and it is really a case of “save the planet from us!”

We are squeezing it dry, trying to wring the last drop of blood from a dying dirt ball.

All the pomp and ceremony is not needed. The 1% don’t need a cork presenter.

Things like cork presenters are just one more nail in the coffin for the rest of us.

As useless as tits on a bull!

Humanity has to change. The sooner the day of reckoning comes, the better for everybody.
