Jim Beam Space Shuttle Decanter

Only shortly behind “peanut butter and chocolate” on the list of things that naturally go together must be “drinking alcohol and piloting the space shuttle”.


I ran across this odd item while out shopping last weekend, and a bit of Googling revealed it to be a Jim Beam Space Shuttle Decanter. Flying the Space Shuttle has to be one of the most dangerous and stressful jobs of all time, so this is one case where I completely support drinking on the job. I don’t know if the Space Shuttle has cup holders installed or not, but if not I believe it should. Astronauts deserve to wind down with a nice glass of Jim Beam just like the rest of us.
