The Beer Ratchet

The other night at the Tiki bar, John mentioned that he had gone to an O.S.U. football game recently and had stopped in at a bar across the street from the horseshoe and had a few beers before the game. He said that you had to buy tickets from one booth and take them to the bar to redeem them for your beer. The tickets were $3.50 each, and it took two tickets for one beer. John went to the game with his lovely daughter and her new husband, and since the outing was his treat, he felt obliged to pay. They had two beers each. He told his daughter that, whatever happens, don’t spill the beer! It was $42 for a six-pack!

After sitting there at the Tiki bar for a while and telling this story to Frank, they decided that what they really needed to invent was the beer ratchet. Much like the tie-down straps that people use to secure cargo to their truck, the beer ratchet would hold your beer in your hand and prevent you from losing it by setting it down, and also to prevent you from spilling it in a crowded bar. To my knowledge, no such item exists. I suggested, that in a pinch, duct tape would serve the purpose, seeing as how most of life’s little problems can be solved with this sticky, gray wonder-tool. Apparently, I was not alone in thinking this.
See pictures.

I don't know any of these people, I just found them on the internet.

  1. I want to follow these ladies around to see how they manage to pee with bottles taped to their hands (maybe they have to go 'round commando in skirts after awhile! heh! [to quote Potato Head: "hey, I can dream, can't I?"])

    also, how do you look at your watch without spilling??
