Burp Gas Filterer

The Burp Gas Filtering Device: Patent No. 7070638, issued July 4, 2006. It serves two functions in one. You can deodorize your burp, and if your dinner companion needs a pen to sign the check, you'll have one to offer.

Burp or eructation odors have been a source of annoyance or concern in polite society for hundreds of years. Far too often, the foods that we love most cause us to belch. To the person who is belching, the odor may be a trifling annoyance, especially if the burp was the result of an enjoyable meal. However, for persons in the close vicinity of the burp, the burp is simply an unpleasant odor of someone else's partially digested food. Many people wish to eliminate the burp odor so as to avoid offending others...
The burp filtering device has the body of a writing pen, with an intake port at the upper end of the body, a plurality of exhaust ports adjacent the writing tip and a filter disposed within the body. The filter may be made of activated charcoal or other media for filtering and adsorbing or absorbing eructation odors. In use, the user holds the upper end of the pny body to his lips, releases the suppressed burp and the filtered, deodorized gas is exhausted through the ports at the writing tip...
Still another object of the invention is to provide a device for eliminating burp odors that also serves as a writing instrument.

I don't know about the rest of you, but the truly satisfying burps always seem to require an open mouth.

I know several people who could really use this.

I don't know how much I would want to use a pen that someone has burped into.

I agree with Jules. In fact, I'll go one step further and say that not only an open mouth but a correct stance can help.

Do these come in a suppository? That I could use.

What? And deny my wife of my eructative recitations of "O Canada"? I don't think she'd like that very much.

this would work for a little gas release but how do you keep a pen in your mouth while attempting a big beer belch???

It would be awesome if they designed it to sound like a slide whistle!

mrjazz' beer belch could sound like a circus clown's Reveille!

I could whistle the alphabet instead of burping it!
