After I posted yesterday’s blog about the outdoor wall urinal, I started clicking on interesting links. I passed through 2leep.com, then clickety-clicked through several articles on oddee.com—stopping on 12 Creative Beverage Packing Designs (the last one is mildly NSFW, depending on whether or not you could tell what it is without the label). Which has a “related” link below to what I really want to talk about:
It’s a real product and, better yet, the website features an auto-play infomercial hosted by Dan-freaking-Akroyd.* So bizarre. I want one, no matter how crappy the vodka might be. I’ll set it (empty or full) next to the bust-of-Napoleon brandy bottle I brought home from France many years ago. I think it’s appropriate timing for me to discover Crystal Skull Vodka since I just recently met Karen Allen at the Sundance Film Festival. Even though I didn’t think too highly of Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull, it’s hard to argue with the awesomeness of crystal skulls.
Too bad Crystal Skull Vodka is not currently sold in Utah (and I doubt they ever will be). I’ll have to travel to Wyoming or depend on the kindness of an out-of-state friend to bring me one (and for the record, I’m okay if the vodka is pre-drained. I can find something else with which to fill its head!)

A former coworker, younger than me, once told me that he didn’t go on the internet much because he got bored. The internet bored him. I was flummoxed and fell into a mild state of shock. Obviously we never became friends. When I came to, I still should have punched some sense into his face.
*Tmesis in action.
