The beer drinker on your holiday list will love the Talking
Beer Opener. The best thing about it is that it doesn't keep
Suggested by Rosanne Strassberg of Miami.
If there's one thing that beer drinkers need, it's encouragement
to drink more beer. Unfortunately, there are times when the beer
drinker finds himself in a situation where there are no other humans
around to perform this vital function.
If you have such a person on your holiday list, then this is
the perfect gift item: a beer-bottle opener that, thanks to the
miracle of electronics, says, ``Oh, yeah! Time for a beer!''
That's all this item says, and it says it every time it is activated.
It could be 7 a.m. on a Wednesday morning, but as far as this
item is concerned, it's BREWSKI TIME! The lucky recipient of this
gift may never make it to work again.
