Those of you who have been following me for awhile know I get these weird catalogs in the mail every few months. Well, technically my Lady Friend gets them but as soon as she does she hands them right over to me because they are always good for a few laughs and often good for blog material.
I’ve written articles about things featured in these catalogs over the years.. things like lighted birdhouses, belts that have holsters for beer cans and teddy bear towel holders. Basically crap.
The other day another one of these catalogs came in the mail and I’ve found a few more things to share with you over the coming weeks… starting with these “Outdoor Beverage Holders” which are really Hillbilly beer stakes:
I understand people like to sit out in their yards and drink beer. I have a nice deck and patio area and am looking forward to warm outdoor beer drinking weather myself. But who the hell can’t hold their own cans? Or put them on a table? Or a cup holder on their chair?
The only way I would find this useful is if I was forced to sit on the ground. And quite frankly if I can’t afford to buy a chair I probably shouldn’t be spending money on beer. Zoom in on that photo and you’ll see this at the bottom corner:
It’s for those classy folks who can’t afford chairs, but are too good for beer. Now they have their own holder for wine glasses. Hillbilly wine glasses? I don’t have much more to add about that… though I am guessing the beer holders get a lot more use.
I suppose if you have a lounge chair lower to the ground these could come in handy, though you’d never catch me in a lounge chair. And even in that case do you really need SIX of these? One would suffice.
I’ve got a few more of these stupid catalog items ready for future posts!
