Got 7 Thirsty Friends? Time for an Octabong

Octabong in OctauseWhen we first saw the Octabong, we passed on it as a silly gimmicky beer funnel. Who in their right mind would buy a segmented beer bong when you can get a big old funnel for short money at the hardware store? We should have known better - 2006 seems to be the Year of the Octopus after our experience with the Octopus Tap. Once we got it, we really got it, and we understood the demonic simplicity of the idea and we were sold.

Normally if you're having a funnel race one of two things happen - you get multiple funnels or you add more hoses to one funnel. In the first example you're adding to the overall complexity of the act, which isn't a good idea with a few beer bongs in you; in the second there's no way to tell how much of the beer someone actually drank. The Octabong has eight segmented chambers inside the funnel so you can fill them up individually and everyone can race at the same time without the fear of having to drink someone else's beer. Simple and efficient, plus it'll look like everyone's nursing from the udder of a giant beer cow, which will be great for the party pictures.

Speaking of pictures, we realize the fact that the picture above shows eight women in bikinis using the Octabong. That might be a bit disingenuous since our experience shows you'll probably be more likely to use it with a crew of sweaty drunk guys, but it dovetails nicely with our rich fantasy life.
