Handy-Flask

For surreptitious public consumption of alcohol
  (+5)
(+5)
  [vote for,
against]

Step 1: construct hollow false hand to resemble your own hand, with threaded removable thumb.  

Step 2: remove own hand (preferably non-dominant hand).  

Step 3: replace real hand with hollow replica, fill with alcoholic beverage of choice, enjoy public consumption of alcoholic beverage of choice.

Or, for those who prefer not to do it themselves (or do not own a chainsaw)...

New from Alterorder, Inc.: the Handy-Flask!   

Please include sample hand with completed order form to ensure proper fit and realistic appearance.

       + cute, but I just drink alcohol in a MacDonald's cup...

       I just drink at home, but for some people that's too simple a solution...

       I think the warning about which hand to choose should be moved to step one, otherwise you'll be identify the people with two right hands as likely covert alkys.

       Why on earth would anyone want to use this? You would forego the uber coolness of being the rugged and shifty fellow in the back of the no-name diner, surreptitiously tipping up a brushed steel flask, under the table to "irish up" his cup of joe.   

       [+] anyway, but I prefer my method.

       Hey, I'm just responding to a market. If people want to pay to have their hands chopped off and replaced with non- functional replicas designed to conceal a few ounces of booze, who am I to question their motives?   

       I'm [The Alterother], that's who.

       Couldn't it just be sold with a coat with one sleeve what is longer than the other?

       No, you're totally missing the point. That would make the amputation completely unnecessary.
