No more having to turn the honey upside down to wait for the last of it to drip out of the jar. Just open the bottom lid.
Also good to reuse for storage, since you can get at your junk easier. Plus, they would be cool bracelets, of course.
An added bonus would be that it would be easier to unscrew
when tightened too tight, because you would be able to get a good grip on both lids instead of one hand having a poor grip on the jar.
Here's someone else who thinks that going both ways is a good idea

the actual opening is a rubber-silicon sphincter.... [loonquawl, Apr 02 2009]

||The cool jewellery thing is interesting... Bun!
||Great idea!. Right up until the point that the remainder of the honey from the (nominal) bottom of the jar goes all over the lid and your hand/sleeves.
How about a squeezable sphincter (!?)
||Or if one lid gets stuck (as is such with honey after a few weeks), you can try your luck on the other end. Bun.
||That WhyNot.net is just a cheap imitation of the Halfbakery! We must destroy them!
||Those WhyNot.net guys look far to highbrow for us. I think we should just stay away from it in case it takes over.
||Uhm... there are honey 'jars' with only an opening at the underside; perfectly usable. [link]
||[+] I'm a bit tired of always getting the last few inches of mayo or jam or even peanut butter on my hands, as well as the Pooh-like contortions necessary to get at the honey after it gels.
