Friday Happy Hour: Inventions Edition

Jason English

Last week's Buffet set a Friday Happy Hour franchise record for comments, edging out the Book Club Edition. Let's see what kind of crowd gathers when the topic is ridiculous inventions.

A few possible areas for conversation:

1. What's the craziest invention you've ever seen?
(The dog-shaped vacuum certainly makes my short list.)

2. What hasn't been invented yet but should?
(I think Bluetooth Earmuffs would be fun while preventing frostbite.)

3. How do you feel about a live-action Alvin & The Chipmunks movie?
(I need some convincing.)

I've said enough. Go ahead and chat it up.
