Buttleopener forces resignation

Mark Gregory invented the Buttleopener, which is a bottle opener shaped like a woman's buttocks. Gregory also served as a member of the Williamson County school board in Tennessee, recently rising to become chairman. But the two aspects of his life (buttleopener inventor and school board chairman) have proven to be incompatible. Gregory recently resigned his position as chairman, bowing to pressure from parents who really, really didn't want him involved with the school board. [rawstory.com]

Good. That's disgustingly sexist, and female students and employees of the school district would have a right to be offended that their board chairman is a perv.

More importantly, Adam, this guy was intelligent, inventive, and seemed to have a healthy outlook about sex. And, as everyone knows, it's way easier to control the masses when they're kept numb and dumb than when they're allowed to learn to think and question their surroundings.

This sounds like a political hatchet job.

In the age of twist-off caps, the need for bottle openers is limited.

But the need for cute butts will never end.

Does it make a fart noise when the bottle opens? :lol: :coolsmile:
BTW Adamson Scott, You seem overly sensitive on any issue regarding sex. Maybe you should have that checked out! :coolhmm:

Maybe someone needs to give him a hand with that.

I don't think anyone should be offended by it, but I do think it's incredibly stupid. It could be 1/10th the size and still get the joke across.

I had a punched-steel mutli-tool shaped like a woman: the legs were screwdrivers, the butt a bottle-opener, mouth was a nut driver, etc. I remember it cost me a whole quarter in the mid-60s. It stayed in my tackle box until the early 80s.

If you want to get cute:

BTW fart noises upon opening a bottle would be great too!
