Stratosphere Soda

Today's object is a fine piece of Las Vegas kitsch from the wonderful Stratosphere Hotel. As you can see, the most notable thing about the Stratosphere is the amazing tower. I love looking at the view from high places, and I think the observation deck at the top was my favourite place in Las Vegas.

Being Las Vegas, there is rather more than just an observation deck - there are thrill rides too, including a roller coaster called Big Shot that goes around the top of the tower.

And here we see that ride recreated in the form of a plastic drink straw...

Yes, you can get your Coca-Cola in an enormous plastic container shaped like the Stratosphere Tower! Completely bonkers and totally marvellous. I think there should be more drink containers in the shape of famous landmarks.

Although, come to think of it, I do already have a bottle of absinthe in the shape of the Eiffel Tower. Oh dear, I'd better not start another collection...

You have some pretty wonderful "stuff" Elaine...... and never fail to come up with something different.

Regarding absinthe: it fascinates me, I spent ages a while ago looking at the sort of ceremony with which it is drunk and looking at Google images of absinthe spoons etc..........
