Very cool. Pun fully intended.

I.C. Cans or I.C. $$?

OMG, this is great! Dave, have you forgotten hurricane season is just around the corner?

Oh, that's right. You have a generator. Well, I don't!

So let's see... on a 90 degree day it'll cool the drink down to an icy cold 60 degrees.

Let me know when they try this with beer (Miller doesnt count).

When only the most tepid beverage will do..

Friggin' jerks ---THAT'S MY IDEA! Well technically I owe some credit to my ex-wife -- I called her Icy Cans.

OH This is a different article than I read! The one I read touts Miller as being the first to implement the IC Can in 2007. Although I believe Iron City (IC) has been using a can like that for a year or so now.

"refridgerated"= refrigerated? or did they take the broken fridge on the back porch and fix it so it's a fridge again?

Heyyyy, watch the Miller comments!

Annie what'd I do?!? I spelt it properly, indicated it was a proper noun, and didn't directly refer to it as "beer". What'd I miss?

Blog fight !

Coast - you're cool (har!). The article misspelled 'refrigerated' several times.
But we can have a blog fight over the Miller comment if you want to.

They sure use the word "safe" a lot...I didn't even think there was anything to worry about until I read how safe it was for the third time.

CR - I thought Miller was soda pop - second only to Coors Lite (weasel water).

*ducks flying beer cans*

Annie, do you think we could get paid for proofreading websites? "Refridgerate" - UGH!! Didn't they even use a spellchecker?

Lush - you stole my thunder. My wife has had the ability to chill rapidly for as long as I've known her.

Altogether, now:

Why is american beer like making love in a boat?


an oldie but goodie!

I have a spelling checker
It came with my PC.
It plane lee marks four my revue
Miss steaks aye can knot see.

Eye ran this poem threw it.
Your sure real glad two no.
Its very polished in its weigh,
My checker tolled me sew.

A checker is a blessing.
It freeze yew lodes of thyme.
It helps me right awl stiles two reed,
And aides me when aye rime.

Each frays comes posed up on my screen
Eye trussed too bee a joule.
The checker pours o'er every word
To cheque sum spelling rule.

Bee fore a veiling checkers
Hour spelling mite decline,
And if we're laks oar have a laps,
We wood bee maid too wine.

Butt now bee cause my spelling
Is checked with such grate flare,
There are know faults with in my cite,
Of nun eye am a wear.

Now spelling does not phase me,
It does knot bring a tier.
My pay purrs awl due glad den
With wrapped words fare as hear.

To rite with care is quite a feet
Of witch won should be proud,
And wee mussed dew the best wee can,
Sew flaws are knot aloud.

Sow ewe can sea why aye dew prays
Such soft wear four pea seas,
And why eye brake in two averse
Buy righting want too please.

Lush - you stole my thunder. My wife has had the ability to chill rapidly for as long as I've known her.

'cause it is f%@$ing close to water !

Nah - lets not fight Annie... Lets just sit here and drink -- "me from my glass, and you from yours"

For some reason this brings to mind the " Dickens Cider" routine those radio guys used to do.

Sean and Mud -

Lame. You can both do a lot better.

Funny, my DH doesn't even drink beer and he's... Never mind, not gonna get in on either ...

Then theres always the classic from my youth...
"Hooray for Hiney Wine
Pick up your own so that you DONT grab mine"

Kathy P - "DH" = ...designated hitter? - desired hottie?

*swipes Coast's beer*

could that technology work for hot-flashes? (not that i'm having any, mind ya. but, still...)

So what are you supposed to do with the bottom portion of the can once it's full of hot vinegar salt?

Oh, and notice that you only get 10.5 ounces of beverage in a can the size of a 16 ounce can that you just know they're going to charge extra for.

Me, I'll stick the older, simpler technology that uses the release of compressed gas to chill the drink. Sure, it'll destroy the planet, but it's still cold beer - http://www.motherjones.com/news/feature/1997/07/chillcan.html

DH= Devoted Husband? Nnnnnnnaaaahhhh!

*settles for Annie's Miller as a goodwill gesture - but isn't going to enjoy it*

Well we know this works because the picture has a blueprint and simulated electrons orbiting the can. There's definetly science involved somehow.

*snork! at Coast's DH!* What an oxymoron!

puppytoes - now I feel bad - the first thing I thought of was cold beer, not a hotflash treatment.

*opens another of Coast's beers.*

OK...it's good as far as it goes; but I want one that will open my mouth and pour the beer directly down my throat. Oh...and a remote. Geez...they expect us to do EVerything...

*opens one of my own beers while deliberately smiling at Annie*

Didn't I read this in a book somewhere in the Galaxy?

Oh Betsy - isn't that something like - ummm
a date?

I ordered a bottle of Bud,
But it bounced from the bar with a thud.
Now it's busted, alas,
In a shower of glass,
And a puddle of beer on the Mud.

There's a muscle that's known as the ab
In my stomach beneath all the flab.
There's no six-pack to see,
But two keggers or three.
(When the beer flows, I pick up the tab.)

I sense a budding relationship (I did not say love affair) between CR and Annie. It might be the beer but who knows.....

Now, the truth:

When drinking there's no beer for me
for truly 'tis like fairy pee
like a rutting young otter
it's effing near water
I'll stick with a neat glass of whiskey

3 *snorks* for Mud!

These guys get the "Foster Brooks Mankind Improvemt Award".

I wonder if your lips stick to the can.

You know like when you put your tongue on the inside of the freezer. (Not that I or anyone in my family has ever done that. I've just heard about that kind of thing happening.)

"all natural desiccant"

taken from definition:

"some desiccants are capable of drying out plants or insects, causing death."

chilling indeed. did i say yummy?

potential names for products:




i have the theme songs too if you like.

also: happy birthday mr. barry, i have always been a huge fun and nobody will ever top your stolen bases record. your rbi's may tumble eventually.

Is it Dave's birthday too? We forgot to buy cake.

No, it is not Dave's birthday. But yes, we did forget to buy cake.
*swipes another of Coast's beerszzz*
What bake goes with ceer?

"See the beer, how big it's grown,
And friends it hasn't been too long since,
we had no cake..."

Nah...Dave's birthday is on July 3rd...but the entire country celebrates his birthday the next day...

Whew. That would be bad if we missed the blog's b'day.

Annie-I'm trying to think of the second verse.

Since I missed Dave's birthday, I searched back on the blog to last July. I'd just like to alert everyone that the "horses forced to wear panties" link is no longer available. *shrug* In case you were looking for it.

(On the plus side, last July was a great month for pictures.)

Is Dave's b'day really July 3rd? Because that's also my son Dave's birthday. Is this some kind of cosmic thingie? Is my son really the Dalai Lama? or Llama? Signs and portents...

Betsy-I checked last year's blog--July 3rd really is his birthday. Zodiak sign Cancer, I believe. *funny, I could have sworn he was Aquarius*

oh, oh, I'm Aquarius! What did I win?

Betsy - that makes complete sense. I've never seen your son and Dave at the same time.

Annie-I'm Aquarius too. That makes us compatible in a girlfriendy kind of way.

Betsy -

My sister-in-law's B-day is July 3, my cousin's is July 4 and my granddaughter's is July 5 ... or else it's the other way around ... but none of them is named Dave ... merely sayin' ...

I'm sure Dave will be happy to know that his birthday is the day before another famous person - George Steinbrenner. Yankees rule! er, well, they WILL rule, once they get the pitching figured out.

In the immortal words of Bob Veal:

Good pitching will always beat good hitting and vice versa ...

Annie and Lisa - I'M an Aquarius too!

Yay us.

Wolfgang Puck also makes a self-heating can. I saw a hot chocolate version in Sam's last weekend.
