Mom & Son Team Create Wine Condom

In a press release posted on PR Newswire the new Wine Condom bottle closure is described as the “brainchild of 20 year-old Mitch Strahan & his stand-up comedian, single mom, Laura Bartlett.” The idea came when Bartlett lost the cork to a bottle and topped it instead with plastic wrap and a rubber band, to which Strahan responded “Mom, that’s so ghetto!” But “what started out as a just a joke soon proved to have advantages over conventional wine stoppers; mainly they sit flush with the rim of the bottle, thereby making it fit easier in refrigerator doors & shelves.” Bonus: it works on beer bottles too.
