Champagne Gun

What does a bored billionaire do when he's temporarily run out of hundred-dollar bills to light his cigars with? Now he can turn his champagne bottles into spray guns and soak guests with premium bubbly!

If you need to ask how much this costs, then you're not part of the target market. (It's $495)

For $495 couldn't they have paid for some music?

BTW, does this have the TSA stamp of approval?

In 1987 I had the opportunity to tour a sparkling wine manufacturer in France in the Loire River valley near Tours. Within the caves along the river the winery was in the first phases of automating a process of turning bottles in the fermenting racks so that sediment would settle into the neck of the bottle which would then be removed further along the processing line. The fermenting racks resembled rocket launchers. Found a picture of a modern machine.

To be used when hijacking a Gulfstream V.

Surely you wouldn't wear a bathing suit when using this.

Yuck! Champagne is sticky when it dries -- it'll be a nuisance until you thoroughly wash the floors and your clothes. Use this in a swimming pool, and you'll have to kick the chlorine high because the alcohol will dissolve out, leaving a feast for bacteria.

Party popper. I mean pooper.

Looks like fun, maybe with soda water though. I'd rather drink the alcohol. 😝

For us 99% I could probably build a Coke and Mentos semi-automatic for $4.95 and you will get a similar mess. Biggest problem is to get a flunky to clean it up.

Shouldn't those things have an orange-colored tip so that cops won't think it's a real gun and shoot you?

That can turn a fun thing into a tragedy.

Champagne is headache wine, anyway. Give me a decent Burgundy - or a Prosecco.

From what I've heard lately you can take a jug of Thunderbird, pass it through a blender and save boo-coo bucks on you wine bill.

Expat: do you have to count back from five when you open that bottle?

Bottle??? T-Bird comes in a bottle again?

Give a low-life a billion dollars, and you get a low-life with more expensive toys.

Well Harvey, I'd rather they play with something like this instead of running for office!
