The real classic corkscrew bottle opener had no plastic insert in the 
base. 100% metal. I know, I've played with one for years as a kid.

Your Honor, the above named Defendant has just provided the Court with a clear
and unambiguous admission of guilt.

As this is the first offense, POV State is willing to suspend the traditional
clock cycle time spent on hard-coding macros as provided for in the
documentation.

Let the fine be set at 250 POV units.

- B. E. Esq.

You're too kind...I'm sure that wasn't my first offense....maybe today. :)
In my defense, I did manage to post a scene file that parsed without errors. Who
knew?

In Re Case File PR-NG-2023-5-21-01, Miller, Mike:

Ah.  A repeat offender.  Habitual offender, even.

In consideration of the facts amended to the case file as stated above, good
behaviour, and community service, the fine is waived.

Upon removal of the offending plastic piece which initiated these proceedings,
conviction will be eligible for expungement.

Prosecution rests.

- B. E. Esq.

haha... habitual offender for sure.
....and I'll try to refrain from the liberal use of 'classic' to describe the
junk I've collected in the last 65 years - accept for my wife - she is a
classic. :)

....all in good fun. Mike.

Beautifully made and rendered! Kudos.

I object, Your Honor! Case law from 1837 clearly states that the fine should be
no more than 10 POV units, "in perpetuity". My learned opponent is quite
mistaken on that point. Economic inflation should have no bearing on the case.

K.W Esq., for the defense
