I got up early today so I amused myself by looking for vintage appetizer picks on eBay. these seem more Beatlesque to me but who can be sure?
They thought of everything here – themed glasses, coordinating stir sticks. I wonder how many of these are out there? It just seems to me that the target consumer of duck hunting themed bar ware is probably not drinking anything that requires a stir stick.
It’s too early in the day to look at a “Vtg NUDE NAKED LADY BOOBIE BOOB MUG Nipple COFFEE CUP” so we’ll just skip that one. This one is a bit more tasteful, but just a bit:
At the risk of TMI, I can attest based on my own modest research that the image on the gin container is pretty much the way things end up when you drink the stuff.
Just kidding! That’s not really true. I take my boots off.
And what’s a martini without a little vermouth? Very little vermouth.
This has what looks to be a pliable green olive-like bulb on the end that is somewhat reminiscent of an infant mucus syringe or an old toilet float.
Believe it or not, there are 7 pages of musical decanters for sale today on eBay. Most of them play Little Brown Jug or How Dry I Am. I was momentarily distracted by the J.R. Ewing likeness that played the theme song from Dallas but really I’m more fascinated by “The Dancing Scot”:
Doesn’t it seem to you that you would only be able see the dancing scottish man in his kilt when the decanter is empty? They must have approved production based on the design without thinking the whole thing through.
You’d be surprised how many people I’ve come across that have no idea what a church key is. In case you are one of them, here it is:
I love the simplicity of the seller’s description. No details necessary – everybody knows! In fact, they do not. Is it a regional thing? Are these bottle openers known as church keys outside of the northeast? The advent of the twist-off cap made these unnecessary and our children won’t know about them. Sadness.
