Big Jokes



A good long time friend of mine, over the years, has given me a number of “joke” gifts. I'm a big guy, so he gets me big things. One year it was a 4 foot long screwdriver. Another year it was a 3 foot long adjustable wrench. The real joke is that I've had situations where those gifts were just the tool for the job.

He's really outdone himself this time. On the right is a normal flask. On the left is the new gift, a half gallon sized flask.




Yes, I've got a practical use for the that too. Glass containers on a sailboat are not a good idea. Nobody wants to pick up broken glass on a pitching sailboat. So I'm thinking a half gallon of single malt speyside scotch will be just the thing, protection against snakebite, frostbite and whatever ails ya.

Thanks Max!

  2. My question is...will it fit in your back pocket? And, can you empty it in one sip.....

    1. Slips nicely into the waistband. Might take more than one sip.

  3. Not so much for snake bite but it may either keep away or summon up some sea monsters.

    1. Indeed it could. A little moderation might be in order here.
