    If I'm going to drink absolutely everything from a single cup, it should look like this:



    Is 'smart pimp cup' an oxymoron?
    It is now my duty to completely drain you.

    Never underestimate the brains of a real world pimp. If you have some time try reading Iceberg Slim's book "Pimp" or any of his other books for that matter. 'Course as pimp cups go you picked the "Patek" as I am pretty sure that is a Ms. Debbie cup. How do I know this crap?

    I'm not sure if I should be admitting this, but I had custom cabinetry done in both of my kitchens largely due to extensive amounts of crystal and glassware. With this thing, all you'd need is a coaster. Kitchens everywhere look bare bones thanks to the eye-rollingly named 'vessyl'.

    Pics please. I've seen an before maybe perhaps not here. I have appropriate glasses for each drink, but you have them for each brand, iirc.

    Did you ever find those thistle scotch glasses yet?

    I have but one, I really want four. But they must be popular or collectible in some circles, because you're lucky if you can find a single one for under $100.

    Here she is in action. She'll have friends sooner or later.

    Perhaps the most bizarre glassware I have are these 'port sippers'. I enjoy port, but I don't know a lot about it, but when I saw them I had to have them. You drink through that wavy straw piece. They are fairly small, and you look a right piece of work using them, so in the proper situation they are essentially a trump card. You can cut the pretension with a knife, and so it amuses me to emerge whilst sipping from one into a room of friends all enjoying a pint. Especially if from the tin.

    The reverse of this effect is in a more formal setting, the last sip makes that really annoying and juvenile sound a straw in a paper cup of coke makes. When you're trying to get the last out and it does that slurping noise. I like to really drag that out with the port sipper.
