If it was in your ass you'd know where it was

This goes to show there is a hobby for everyone. I'm curious to know the "training" involved in learning how to stick an entire wine bottle up there. Or maybe not.

I'm curious to know what sort of wine bottle we're talking about. B may be able to help out. If we're talking a Riesling or Gewurtztraminer, then probably not a big deal. Syrah bottles can be a bit trickier, as would champagne. Don't even want to think about MD 20/20 or, god forbid, a box of Franzia.

Let's hope it was not one of these:

CHAMPAGNE Magnum: 1.5 liters (two bottles) Jeroboam: 3 liters (four bottles) Rehoboam: 4.5 liters (six bottles) Methuselah: 6 liters (eight bottles) Salmanazar: 9 liters (12 bottles) Balthazar: 12 liters (16 bottles) Nebuchadnezzar: 15 liters (20 bottles)

Even larger sizes are occasionally seen, although they are very rare:

Solomon: 20 liters (28 bottles) Primat: 27 liters (36 bottles)

BORDEAUX Magnum: 1.5 liters (two bottles) Marie-Jeanne: 2.25 liters (three bottles) Double Magnum: 3 liters (four bottles) Jeroboam: 4.5 liters (six bottles) * Impèriale: 6 liters (eight bottles)

*Because of recent U.S. regulations limiting larger bottles to even liter sizes, some modern red-wine "Jeroboams" are now 5 liters rather than the traditional 4.5.
