A clip on extension to your wine glass - up to a meter long made of thin tubular glass or similar material so that you can toast people on the other side of the table.

       thanks

       I concur. I imagine little remote-control coasters which would zip across the table to clink your wineglass against someone else's would be cheating--after all, you're supposed to hold your glass up to the other person.

       By the title, I thought maybe this was an idea for how folks could extend the little speech that often goes with toasts. Toast filibusters, perhaps.

       When I saw this idea, I was hoping for a way to get more out of a slice of bread.   

       [benfrost] You'd have to be careful (or more co-ordinated than I am) if the glass wasn't half-empty before you tried to toast.

       Yeah, yeah, yeah. Throw your drink in someone's face from across the room! Get refills without standing up!

       Darn. i was hoping this was a way to make your toast go further - y'know, like when you run out of toast before you run out of the scrambled eggs you were piling on the toast... ah, well.

       My Father-In-Law was a terriffic toast extender...he could make a toast last until all the guests were thirsty beyond belief....His toasts alwyas began with, "When I was but a young lad of three...." and ended with, "And now that I am an old man of only 87...."when the toast was finally over...they gulped their drinks in one giant "Glug"...now, I'm thirsty, too...bye.
