Anti-Theft Pint Glass Explodes Ink If You Try to Steal It


Apparently, stealing pint glasses from pubs is becoming a worldwide dilemma. At least, a serious enough issue that cider-maker Kopparberg rolled out a new set of pint glasses bearing “custom-made security tags.” In order to prevent customers from walking out with their precious glassware, Kopparberg installed tags (similar to the ones attached to clothes at retail stores) that explode with ink if carried more than 100 meters away from the bar.

Although the company insists that this anti-theft gadget is not meant to “punish people,” we see it going terribly wrong anyway. What happens when you’ve had a few drinks and the girl you’ve been eyeing all night suddenly runs out of the pub with her gaggle of girls? Without thinking, you grab your pint of beer (of course), and chase after. Unfortunately, your forgot about that pesky “security tag” and just as you’re about to catch up with her, it explodes, splattering you in ink from head to toe. Hardly the ideal first impresson.

Super Pick-Up Lines Pint Glass

Ladies, you’ve probably heard every line in the book. But those were the same old cliches being told by jerks NOT holding a Superman pint glass. Before you start heading for the door, check out some of these classy gems:

“My x-ray vision tells me you’ve been working out.”


“Wanna see why they call me the man of steel?”

This glass has charming lines like those printed on the surface so that, even in a state of complete inebriation, you’ll be able to dole out some serious game, Superman style. You’re welcome.

Marvel Pint Glasses

If all my beverages were served in Marvel-themed glasses, I’d be one happy camper! I apparently still relate to a 12 year-old boy.
