    I knew a guy who would open a beer and have a glass or 1/2 then put a stopper in it for next week! I dont see the point of this. I guess it would prevent a European wasp landing in the can for sweet goodies & then biting the drinker.
    It would prevent many of us keeping the ring pull to give to a charity that uses them to make wheelchairs for underprivilaged kids.

    Well, ring pulls drive worthy causes, here In USA too.
    Far as corking cans though, that's new to me. But if Queensland distributes ale in Fosters sized containers, maybe...but not a whole week!

    I do recall early 60's era, an 'accessory' lid to close off open cans with bugs as the sales main point. A lot of people ingest bees with soda...at least staves off choking hazard.
    Has to be some joke about getting/not getting a buzz.

    Sorry, the stopper was in a stubby (glass bottle) about 375ml, same size as our common cans. I did know folk that would use a silver spoon in a bottle or can to supposedly to prevent the effervescence disappearing over night.

    Hard to improve on perfection. The Germans perfected the recloseable beverage container many decades ago Not to mention some of the best bier in the world

    The really extra good thing about these (we have them also) is that the bottle can be reused & pressureised whereas the screw top ones cant be used for ginger beer or homebrewd beer and go to glass recycling. They have mountains of crushed glass in Europe mainly from Australian wines. Recycling? What are they going to do with all that? Maybe make rockets, vessels, cars, houses, space stations? exorbitant waste! I have no idea just beam me up scotty.

    I found one worse than the, ahem, Doodle Finger, shown below for comparison below. Here we have evidence found in the wild of (possibly a hoax?) the french fry tip itself being used to hold the aforementioned fry as it is consumed, and then the tip is...discarded???

    We're through the looking glass now.
