Coldpole?

Postby cheeseburglar » Thu Oct 21, 2010 5:35 pm

Does anyone have any experience with the Coldpole or similar ski poles?
I'm thinking of getting a pair...

No doubt inspired by 19th century Post-Impressionist painter Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, who carried a hollowed-out cane to conceal his alcohol.

Along the same lines..

The Beer Bra

The Wine Rack

I don't normally drink while hiking, but I can see where a Beer Bra would be useful for concerts, where the beer lines are long, and a Wine Rack might be ideal for the Opera, where you don't want to get up to top off your Pinot Noir during the performance. They also carry the added benefit of enhancing your attire. I suppose a "Cold Pole" might be handy on a short winter jaunt, serving as a portable snifter for a bit of summit schnapps.

On a side not, the genetic disorder pycnodysostosis is also known as "Toulouse-Lautrec Syndrome." Sadly, no alcohol-concealment devices bear his name.

This is hilarious. Now you have me wondering if the little old ladies next to me had one when I went to see La Boheme night before last.

A very interesting fellow, monsieur Toulouse-Lautrec. All five feet of him.

Is there a "Beer Bro" or "Beer Mansierre"? How about a "Bock Jock"?

They beat you to it with the Beer Belly. I don't think I could sanction the use of a Bock Jock or a Bud Pud.

Love Lautrec! I have two prints of his works that I bought at the Impressionist show at the DAM back in 1999, and a refrigerator magnet of "La Goulue" from the gift shop at the Musee D'Orsay when I visited Paris in 1998. Interesting fellow indeed. Liked to hang out with prostitutes - died at 36, of syphilis. Amazingly prolific, creating thousands of works during his short life (no pun intended).

Hey, it's more fun than Vicodin! La Boheme is my favorite - saw it here in the Springs in 1998. Thank goodness I wasn't drinking... my god that is the most devastating story, and the mezzo-sopranos just tear your heart out. I had enough trouble keeping it together, stone sober!

You really want to wrap that thing in cold beer? Is there an emoticon for *cringe*? How about *shrivel*?

It's properly called shrinkage:

George: I was supposed to see her. She wasn't supposed to see me.

Jerry: So what?

George: Well ordinarily I wouldn't mind. But...

Jerry: But...

George: Well I just got back from swimming in the pool. And the water was cold...

Jerry: Oh... You mean... shrinkage.

George: Yes. Significant shrinkage!

Jerry: So you feel you were short changed.

George: Yes! I mean, if she thinks that's me she's under a complete

misapprehension. That was not me, Jerry. That was not me.




Elaine: It shrinks?

Jerry: Like a frightened turtle!

Rachel: D’oh!! (pause) I’ve got it!

Chandler: You don’t have it.

Rachel: I have so got it. There’s gonna be rumours about this, there’s no way to stop it. Sophie knows, Monica and Phoebe know.

Chandler: How do Monica and Phoebe know?

Rachel: Oh, I called them. And when they ask me what I saw, I can be very generous (Holds her hands far apart) or very (In a high pitched voice) stingy.

Chandler: (intrigued) Go on.

Rachel: I can make you a legend. I can make you this generation’s Milton Berle.

Chandler: And Milton Berle has a

Rachel: Ohh, not compared to you. (Chandler nods in agreement)

The Coldpole sounds like a much better idea than the Uro Club:

The thing only holds the booze in the handle. That is not very much, only 8 oz per pole, gives you a total of only one pint.

Better to hike with Crossfitter, he carries a 62 lb keg with him ( trip report;EPIC 14ER FINISH!!!!).
