Few people have heard of it, yet many consider John Blankenbaker's KENBAK-1 to be the first commercial personal computer.

Koss introduced these headphones over 40 years ago, and they remain affordable favorites to this day.

Swanky Lady Barware


Honestly we could be here all day if we were to talk about novelty barware.  I don't know when the first ur-novelties might have slithered out of the primordial hops & barley, but I've got to think that since there have been taverns, there have been jokey little things to litter around the bar.  As if drinking alone weren't fun enough...

Here's the gag with these glasses.  On the front of the drinkware are four lovely leisure-time ladies.  Very shapely, yet very pointy in that unique 1950's way.  You may not know it yet, but the ladies' painted-on smirks hide a little secret.


You fill the glasses with some opaque libation, then as the sucker enjoys the drink he'll eventually sight the ladies' backsides from inside the glass!  Ladies in the altogether with only a pair of maracas and a dim recollection of something their mothers warned about virtue.

Of course your victim will just die of embarrassment, right?  Certainly no one in their right mind would ogle the nudies on these glasses.  That would just be tacky.

Lots of novelty barware seems to make much of being a sloppy drunk or a boor.  I don't think that I'm either, and like my novelties to reflect that.  I hope that none of our readers will be particularly offended by these images.  I think that they're more emblematic of boyish mischief than anything else.
