Coffee eyeball

Keep and enjoy your coffee

Keep a small replica of an eyeball in your pocket, could be in a little container at your key ring. When you buy a hot coffee you throw it in and let it float. Initially, when the coffee is too hot to drink the eye is all bloodshot. It stares suspiciously at anyone approaching your coffee. It always does the staring, but you know what it is and don't care. At the right temperature the eye turns a beautiful Scarlett O'Hara green. When the coffee is cold the color is, obviously, blue.

Has anyone told you, you have beautiful eyes in your coffee? http://comparestore...loating-eyeball.asp
Here's a floater. It doesn't change color, but nobody's gonna drink that coffee anyway. [Amos Kito, Oct 04 2004, last modified Oct 21 2004]

       No matter which end of the can of catfood I open there is always an eye staring out at me. Make them stop!

       Excellent!

       I can't help thinking that if [benfrost] had come up with this idea, the eyeball would have been replaced by a turd. Now that I would have voted for!   

       On a more serious note, would the eyeball not be masked by a sufficient depth of cappuccino froth?

       Sorry [benfrost] I obviously have you all wrong!

       Bring your own "eye like coffee" mug.   

       Hmm, I think I have a product for this product you came up with. +

       How about a fake severed finger curled arround the lip of the mug and into the hot liquid. The splintered bone sticking out of the base of the finger could change color or bleed as it reached a desireable temperature.

       Looks like there is material for a whole collection of items to put into coffee. I just love thermochrome dyes.   

       [sloop] Picture of a little cow that turns into a burger? Or an an electronic widget that stops moo-ing when that cow is finally done?

       perhaps a small mouse-like object that shouts "Arriba arriba ariiiiba!" when the coffee is ready to drink. Hey, why do you think Speedy Gonzalez is so fast? He's hopped up on that great Columbian coffee all the damn time. And possibly that great Columbian smack, too.

       I dont know why i never voted for it when i saw this idea the first time around! +++

       There used to be a guy in our town that made ceramic mugs with crazy animals, faces, eyeballs and such at the bottom that you would see after you drank enough coffee... I loved them.   

       Anybody know where I can get something similar?

       I always knew my coffee experience was missing something.
