80's Corner

Does anybody remember the Krazy Straw? As a child, when I saw the commercial for this engineering wonder, I went Krazy (maybe that's why they named it the Krazy Straw). Regular straws would no longer do for worldy child like myself. I needed to see the milk or juice I was sipping go through a wonder-ride before it ever got to my mouth ... the Krazy Straw made drinking fun (for a child, of course).

Sure, it took more effort to suck, but it was all worth it. The entertainment value of the straw paid for itself. Unfortunately, my mom never gave in to the purchase of said Krazy Straw. I think I had some friends who were lucky enough to own a Krazy Straw ... and the jealousy I hold against them continues to this very day. Jerks.

Hall of Fame-caliber quote there:
