My wife and I frequent an excellent hole-in-the-wall Italian restaurant. They have a delicious menu but an absolutely abysmal wine list. Their house wine has the taste of Styrofoam and I think they purchase their other wines from the local 7-Eleven. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a wine connoisseur, but I know what I don't like. We normally apply the time honored solution to this problem and bring in our own bottle of wine. If we carry in a nice BV cabernet, say, we ask the waiter what the "corking fee" is. This is usually a nominal two dollars. The wine at this particular restaurant is so bad that if we were to bring in a jug of cheap Gallo wine (you know, the kind without a cork) it would be a vast improvement over their normal fare. Can you picture my wife and I inquiring of the waiter what the "screwing fee" is? David Levine I am to blame for this joke because I made it up myself.
