See no evil, hear no evil, taste no wine


These three little wise monkeys may have an aversion to wine, but perhaps they are just watching over it for you. In fact, that’s exactly what these Banana Kids Wine Stoppers by Alessi are meant to do. Some may consider them to be turning a blind eye towards your imbibitions, and perhaps that’s not too bad of an idea. As the saying goes: see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. If you’re using these wine stoppers to save a bottle of Two Buck Chuck, then these monkeys are wise indeed.
