consumer humor

I'm not in the mood to be too serious this evening. Here's a product that can come in handy in a variety of situations: the Beerbelly. It's a drink bladder that is shaped like a flabby belly. The capacity of the Beerbelly is up to 80 ounces of the liquid of your choice. It comes with a sling to hold the bladder and has a drinking tube that can be trimmed to the perfect, easy access length for each individual. The Beerbelly website even has a tips and tricks page, to help consumers maximize their uses of the Beerbelly.

With the beverages ranging from $5 to $7.50 at ball games; $5, on average, at the movies; $1.25 for a 20 ounce soda at the store-- these guys are on to something =). Plus, the beverage could be a whole lot more fun that a diet cola.

OMG ... gross. But freakin' funny too!

Since they mention that women might not want to be seen with a beer belly, they might try inventing a beer bra instead. Swelling in the upper torso would certainly look less out of place.

I'm partical to the bodacious beer booty for women, myself. The website shows the drink bladder being run over by a car and not bursting-- sitting on it should be fine. Also, a little less conspicious that deflating cleavage.

Yeah, I thought it was gross, too. But a delicious,hysterical kind of weird gross =).

I don't know that I want to be seen drinking out of a tube coming from any region near my ass. That's wrong on many, many levels.

I like the beer booty. It has the advantage of the weight being carried on the hips to minimize back strain and providing cushioning for comfortable sitting.

Just route the tube up through a pant leg, under the shirt, and out the collar.

Okay, I can't spell. I should rephrase my "partical" to the correct "partial." Also, my "that" should be a "than."

Sheesh-- who let me leave comments while otherwise inhibited?
