So (un)necessary

beer pong rackMS reader Lisa tipped me off about this site, where you can purchase all kinds of random drinking game doo-dads, such as the Beer Pong Game Rack With Freezable Center (pictured).

With this one-of-a-kind device, you can not only guarantee a perfect rack -- ALL THE TIME -- but you fill it in water and put it in the freezer before playing so it keeps your beer icy cold!

All this for a mere $21.95, plus shipping and handling.

That's right folks, the double awesome, one-of-a-kind Beer Pong Game Rack could be yours for the price of one 30-pack of Bud Ice.

Personally, I'd rather drink the Bud Ice. But hey -- that's just one man's opinion. I'm sure there are plenty of college kids with money to burn on useless beer pong memorabilia much like this here. Otherwise, this site wouldn't be in existence.

I did, however, find one beer pong accessory I liked ...

Oh yeah.

Now this, I'm diggin'. But $59.95? That's just out of my range. 

But maybe I'm coming from the wrong perspective. Maybe I should look at it like I'm still in college -- when I had roommates.

See, $59.95 split four ways ain't that bad. That's what, like $15 a person? Yeah, that's more like it. 

But what college house also has a pool? Hmmm ...

Maybe I'm thinking about this a little too hard. Either way, I'm diggin' it.

The item number for the rack w/ freezable center is "NICERACK"

Good find, Lisa


Since September first we have been introduced to;

Beer Stein Bong With “Speed Hole” Drinking Technology
Beer Launching Fridge
Beer on a stick
Beer clothing
Asahi Robocoo
Sneaky Leaker
And now these,
the Beer Pong Game Rack With Freezable Center
Inflatable Floating Pool Beer Pong Table.

Don’t you think these need to give these products their own category?
Possibly, Beer Novelties
So Unnecessary But Fun

GDA, I'm one step ahead of you. Take a gander at the sidebar to the right. There, you will find, under categories, "Drink-ology." Oh yeah!

Someone should alert karlosi & his friend to "Bone Chillers Ice Cube Tray"

When hubby and I got married a few months back, he got me this for a wedding present:

Gee, and all I gave him was my undying love and devotion.

While I stand corrected, Drink-ology, at least to me, sounds a little bit too much like Mixology.

Investigating the site, I found these items which referback to the post on absinthe.
