Believe it or not, being a couch potato can be a real struggle. Noisy chip chewing can muffle the sound of the television, the remote can slip just out of reach, and the top of your mug can even obscure your view. Now an invention from Perpetual Kid promises that you'll never have to deal with the latter problem again.

The TV Beer Mug might not look like much, but it claims to save countless viewers valuable seconds of television. The offending section of the mug that normally blocks the drinker's view as you take a swig has been removed, leaving the line of sight free and ready to consume more media. If you have big plans of sitting on your couch and drinking beer coming up, you might want to grab one of these $11 mugs while you can.
