Klein Bottle Opener

31f-H3biqVL

For a sec there I thought I'd died and gone to hyperspace.

There are a few reading this who just chuckled for reasons other than the usual.

But I digress.

Sure, you could buy a Craftsman-handle bottle opener as featured in Wired magazine's annual holiday gift issue but why wouldn't you want something a bit more, I dunno, tool-(in the worst sense of the word)-like?

I know I would.

$9.84.

Fair warning: If this item does not appear in Mike Anderson's Christmas stocking, his henchwomen, led by the irrepressible @chelssmiesterr, better have a plenty good explanation why not.

Just sayin'

Michael and John, you're spot on.

I visited Bathsheba Grossman's website and was gobsmacked by her opener a little over two years ago:

I had seen it in an ad in the back pages of Scientific American.

The link above appears in the second sentence of this post โ€” the word "reasons."

True, a bit obtuse and indirect, but I can be like that.
