Back to the gadgets

June 7, 2007

Journal, Lauren

Going along with the love of gadgets, I must mention this from my father. He also loves techno-stuff (he’s got one of those cool iBook laptops with magnetic cable connectors), but he also appreciates the simpler doodads. While in Blue Hill, he gave us a very nifty little bottle closer that keeps pop from going flat. Since Lloyd likes to drink A&W Cream Soda, and usually buys it in 2-liter bottles,  this was a timely gift.

We're gonna pump (clap) you up.

The best part is how the directions make it sound kind of dangerous: “Do not us on glass bottles. Do not over pump. Direct away from eyes/face when releasing pressure (opening bottle).” It’s like a bomb of soda goodness!

    Those legal disclaimers make me shake my head. They forgot to include “Do not try to swallow this device” and “Do not use on skin” and “Not for use with gasoline canisters”


  2. Beth Said on:

    Perhaps it should also say, “Not to be used as a cure for constipation.” Stupid people might try that.


  3. Peggy Said on:

    Or, “Do not insert in any body cavities.”

    You guys and dolls are so funny! Thanks
