Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is The Original Binocktails Paddle Brush Flask. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out what this is for, but let me tell you it is designed smartly enough to fool the 10 dollar an hour “security” people at sporting events and such. I know some will be like, “hey do you really need to drink so bad you need to smuggle booze around in a brush”. My initial response is “go back to 1920 you prohibitionist”, no seriously. Why might you want this?
Honestly the time I most often could use a drink and can’t get one is the stupid kids parties we all get roped into at some location that kids love yet seem to be designed to torture adults. Think animatronics, loud ringing machines or some such thing. Twenty odd 6 year olds running around and screaming surrounded by say 100 other random children! Yea sorry I’d like a drink in that situation.
The choice on where to use this and if you should use it is really up to you. I personally just really brought it around because from time to time I like to share items that really are totally unnecessary but fun. Often such items make great gifts for certain people in your life as well. But why a brush?
A few things about that. First I found this item when it popped up in my Facebook feed randomly. I thought oh cool, that could be fun to share. Then I started researching and let me tell you if you want to go full on sot, there are dozens of items like this out there. Some are junk, some well made but you can get things like this in everything from a fake umbrella to a fake cell phone charger and even fake body lotion bottles. Then of course there are the original fake binoculars.
Well personally to me the fake chargers and umbrellas all look fake, really fake. Also neither of them work, the umbrella isn’t an umbrella and the charger isn’t a charger. Everyone knows about the binoculars which also look very fake and don’t work. So all of these are easy to spot for what they are.
Gotta say for some environments those lotion bottles have potential! But the brush looks like a brush, works like a brush and unless you know exactly what to look for won’t draw a bit of attention. It also holds 6 oz of your favorite adult beverage. With something like this I am looking to have a drink and share one with a friend or two, not get “tore up from the floor up”, 6 oz is plenty. And it is a real brush that is actually a decent brush if needed and it even has a mirror on the back.
It also works and doesn’t leak, I got one and tested it before recommending it. Like everything I recommend it works and if I would not spend my money on it, I would not suggest you spend yours on it.
In the end it is just a fun little item, do with it as you will. Let me say though it can pay for itself. The last concert we went to, was a Jimmy Buffett concert. They had awful and I mean GOD AWFUL giant frozen margaritas for like 18 fricken dollars a piece. You know what though, when you added 2oz of good gold tequila to them they were pretty decent. I will close with this, if you don’t think you shouldn’d be sneaking a flask into a Jimmy Buffett concert, you know nothing of Jimmy Buffett or his concerts! However for my fellow Parrot Heads, take a look at the The Original Binocktails Paddle Brush Flask and you or a friend might just like to have one.
