Things No One Asked For: TV Viewing Beer Mug

Nope
by Ryan Hudak on Oct 11, 2016 in Culture

Try, if you can muster the intestinal fortitude, to picture this horror movie scenario:  you’re sitting on your couch, watching some quality television, and you’re thirsty.  Luckily, you have a big ol’ mug of beer right next to you, so you take a sip and—DAMN IT! The mug got in front of your eyes and you missed almost a full second of television.  What the hell are you going to do now? It was probably something really important.  And you can’t be expected to skip back every single time you take a drink! Life is garbage!

Oh, but wait, my friend.  The geniuses—or should we say heroes?—at NPW  have invented the TV Beer Mug, which is a mug with a slant in it so you never have to look away from the television.  So now, the next time you’re sitting on your couch and can’t peel your stupid eyes away from "Chrisley Knows Best" long enough to take a single sip of Busch Light—and your brain isn’t able to piece together the two-second gap of information you’re missing out on—you can rest assured that the folks at NPW have your back. 

Or you could probably just not use a massive mug to drink your beer, as ludicrous as I’m sure that sounds.  It’s been proven with multiple studies—done by me, in my own home, because I’m not a moron—that someone can drink beer out of a can, a bottle, or a regular-human sized glass and still see the television.  Or you can just look away for a split second and still be able to process everything normally.  Of course, the not being a moron part of those studies is very important.

Now if you could only figure out how to open a Slim Jim without taking your eyes off the TV, you’ll be set.
