'Usual gin and tonic sir ?'

'Sure thing James'

'Ice sir ?'

'Yep make it a good cold-un James in a deep glass'

'Penguins with that sir?'

'Penguins James?'

'Yes sir,new from the nanotech labs,they come in little marked box's,Skating Penguins.We pop a few into your drink and they perform upon the ice,they say it's like a pre-performance before the big drink, when you're ready to sup your gin just spoon them out and put them back in the box'

'You serious James? '

The miniature robotic penguins are spooned into the glass and placed upon the floating ice.Before sir's very eyes as he peers into the glass the penguins are performing a skating gala whilst the bubbles fizz and pop into the air like a mini firework display.

'James that is truly amazing'

'As I said sir, just take a spoon and lift them out when your ready to sup'

       You're skating awfully close to nano-magic.

       When I pour a drink, I'm ready to sup.

       Flying nanobot penguins would be really magical.

       I have a Snoopy and Woodstock that skate around on top of a small grand piano which plays "Linus and Lucy". Maybe with a really big gin and tonic...

       I actually think that this is pretty neat. But does it have to work with gin?

       I reckon [skinflaps] has already seen them in his gin and tonic, hence the idea. AA anyone?

       [unclepete] are you suggesting i join the Automobile Association?

       if we genetically engineered tiny penguins, maybe we wouldn't have to spoon em out. adds a bit of body to your drink.

       Make the penguins smart and tough enough and when they eventually come out, they can find their way back home to be reused.   

       Glad I don't drink...
