Default Re-usable corks?

I find it hard to believe they're any use, but they are by a homebrew co. (rather than being aimed at using as a stopper between glasses).

any one used them?

Because a cork is a thing that goes in the neck of the bottle, along with it being made from the cork tree. You couldn't exactly call it a plastic, could you? No one would know what you're talking about

"Cork" has become more than just a noun, it's also a verb; like "shovel." I know there's a proper term for such words, I just can't think of it after a bottle of riesling.
