Yesterday I needed to have it my way, so I came by.
What the hell is the BK Pipe and why am I handing it to my 8 year old?
I am not sure why the new straw/pipe is so frickin thick but the kids really thought it was cool. You could pass a spitball of massive proportion through a straw that thick...one that could really do some damage...cool. There was also talk of letting the hamster use it as a water slide.
So if the point was cool toy...well done.
Now let’s talk logistics.
At first I was hesitant; I considered that the larger diameter might require greater suction to actually pull liquid to the top. It does, but not a problem. Let’s move ahead to what happened when I got to the end of my refreshing Diet Coke...
...I am driving my car with the FlyingMonkeys in the back. I shift through the busy intersection, jamming to Delilah, reach for my almost empty cup...shake it a little to settle the last of the drink...move the large hose like straw to my lips...and suck...hard. Tiny droplets of Diet Coke begin their noisy path through the BK Pipe, my lips begin to turn blue from the effort required and then "THUNK".
I like ice. I like to chew it, suck on it...notice that both of those things would take place in my mouth. I am not so fond of the ice bypassing my mouth and heading straight for my lungs.
So now I know, no suckie the icie...but you just know that some igmo is going to do this and then try to sue you ....just like their baby's Mama's Sister's Cousin's Friend did when her coffee was too hot...
Just lettin you know,
