Jimmy Stewart (overheard in a phone conversation):
"Well hello, Margot, how are things uptown?"
"Oh you do, do you? Well, alright then, let's hear it. What's the big idea."
"No offense, but that's been tried before."
"Now wait just a minute, daiquiri mix in a tube,
that's putting it differently!"
"I don't know..."
"Sure, sure they'd sell like hotcakes, alright. But you'd never be able to-- say now, you're not sore are you?"
"Well of course it's a good idea. It's a swell idea. Finest idea I've heard all day. No really, I mean that."
"Well, sure, folks'll go crazy for it, absolutely banana's, but there's no way it'll fly at the HalfBakery, dollface."
"Well, now, don't go and put it like that. That's not what I..."
"Well, fine then, if you feel that way about it."
"Sure, sure, and while you're there, send me up one of those daiquiri tubes for one. Looks like I could use it."
"Maybe I like it that way too, did you ever think of that?"
"No I'm not angry, Margot. Not really."
"Margot? Margot, are you there?"
"Will you look at that?" (rubs his chin and hangs up slowly) "Dame hung up on me."
ADDENDUM (per waugsqueke's request): This is a flexible plastic tube of daiquiri mix, contianing enough mix for one beverage. They could be sold in a box of a dozen or so. When a daiquiri is needed, you take the frozen tube and squeeze it, whack it on the counter and/or bend it nearly double in several places, thereby pulverizing the contents into the familiar slush for which daiquiri's are much sought. Once the mix has reached the right consistency (could also be further softened by leaving it on the counter, in the fridge or in the microwave), simply tear it at the small nick in the plastic near one end, squeeze the contents into a glass, and add rum. Make one or make half a dozen and never touch a blender.
Other notes: I don't know alot about plastics, but I've seen the kind of plastic I'm thinking of: fairly tough, but elastic, not prone to bursting or splitting. However, once a tear is begun, it tends to tear easily and fairly straight.
