At this point, it really felt like I was seeing things. The drinks weren’t the worst part, it was mostly the restroom. My bladder began to hurt. Later, it would go numb.
Just the thing for your next BBQ, an oven mitt that that is styled after the space slug that tried to eat the Millenium Falcon in “The Empire Strikes Back“. A bit of trivia, the Millennium Falcon’s design was inspired by a hamburger.
