A church key. Neat.
The former gets my vote 'cause I don't see many people in these parts respecting the poo.
Keys are always cool. I don't care for the poo. How about a dead rat paperweight? :-(
It's a tough call. I like to be able to open bottles. On the other hand, paperweights are good for throwing.
I like the key. Disclosure: I like keys and have a collection of them, many from my grandfather.
Don't have much use for either. Given that, the paperweight is cooler from a comedy perspective from its name alone, Roo Poo.
The name of the paperweight IS catchy. But, I have never actually found that I needed a paperweight. So I prefer the key shaped bottle opener. It looks pretty cool AND is useful.
Well I guess I'm a curmudgeon. I don't think either of them is particularly cool. The paperweight is tacky and the bottle opener is a bottle opener.
Which is cooler is the question.
It's subjective, of course.
For both usability and the geek factor, I think the key is a clear winner here. While the roo poo is a conversation piece, it just doesn't have that quality which would put it over the edge.
I agree with the consensus.
I get the question, I guess I'm just having having trouble differentiating the coolness levels of two items that strike me as uncool.
I guess since the jar of fecal matter could theoretically carry disease, that makes it slightly less "cool" than the bottle opener, which probably does not carry disease.
Jeepers don't go all Debbie Downer on us!
Anyhow, the paperweight was encased in resin. The money you get as change at the store is probably just as likely (if not moreso) to carry disease.
Wash those hands!
It just occured to me that maybe you didn't get the visual pun of the key. If you are not familiar with the term "church key" then I ought to cut you some slack.
Plus you need to think back to that silly game we used to play where we ranked "pantheons" and it didn't matter who you were comparing to who, but you had to come up with an answer.
The answer is always in the eye of the beholder, but there must always be an answer...
I read an article a long time ago on how to turn an LP record into a bowl. It's a neat idea, but I can't bear to part with anything in my remaining collection. Even if I transferred them all to CD I'd still want to keep them around in case the CDs went bad or a new technology replaced CDs or something.
I think if someone gave me an LP bowl, I would either hate it because I didn't like the album, or I would be annoyed that such a neat album had been ruined to make a bowl. :
Julie's Y2K bunker has a killer sound system. All vinyl, all the time, baby. :-)
Everyone - party at Julie's Y2K bunker!
I'll bring the MRE rations.
