Taobao begins selling ‘Suarez corkscrews’
Uruguay soccer star Luis Suarez’s apparent biting during a recent World Cup game has inspired Chinese entrepreneurs to begin selling a range of corkscrews called the “Suarez Corkscrews” that are said to “open bottles nice and easy”. About 20 stores are selling the products on Taobao, a popular shopping site in China, though it’s unknown who is manufacturing them. An image of the Uruguayan’s open mouth is used in the products’ packaging. They cost between several hundred yuan and 10,000 yuan ($1,605).
