The only good thing about the Pour Thing is its name. It is also the correct term to apply to anyone on whom you might inflict it as a gift. Its purpose? To ease the ever-present difficulties of tipping soda into a glass, a problem that has plagued millions without solution. Until now:
Don't risk dropping a heavy bottle on your foot or spilling liquid all over the counter when you want a glass of soda! No need to haul a beverage container to the counter when you want a drink â€“ keep a bottle in the Pour Thing and store it right in the fridge!
A two liter bottle weighs around two kilos, or 4.4 lbs, Hardly a great weight, although this could help kids and the weak to more easily heft their sugar fix into a cup. Better, surely, to buy smaller containers, or even stop drinking soda entirely. It melts your teeth, makes you fat and sends you skittering around the place like an ADD spinning-top. In short, soda is a wuss's drink. Real men take their stimulation in the old-fashioned way. Strong coffee, Marlboro Reds and a rolled up Hustler in the back pocket. $20
