Pour me some wine

So there you are, sat with all your buddies, discussing fasting, when this Jesus tells you...

"No one sews a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment. If he does, the new piece will pull away from the old, making the tear worse. And no one pours new wine into old wineskins. If he does, the wine will burst the skins, and both the wine and the wineskins will be ruined. No, he pours new wine into new wineskins."

Just where is the 'new wineskin' today?

(By the way I know Jesus meant the Jewish sacrificial system and the contrast with the new temple within the hearts of his people and within the community of faith)

You could make this a daily feature ... "Where's the new wineskin today"?, along the lines of a spot the ball competition or something.
