“If you ever have trouble opening a bottle of champagne, hit it with a ship”

Paul F. Taylor submitted this champagne bottle joke to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2009:

“If you ever have trouble opening a bottle of champagne. My advice, hit it with a ship. I’ve seen people do that. It works.”

The joke has been included in at least two joke books.
