If you were to venture into my kitchen and take a minute to examine the vestibule of my Kenmore refrigerator, you’d find a plethera of refrigerator-related items. You would find nine different magnetic calendars from various real estate agents, dry cleaners, and pizza places along with three to do lists and a myriad of pictures and magnets jumbled among several pieces of artwork representing our 3-year-old’s interpretation of our house, dog and his grandparents.
But perhaps the most curious thing stuck to the bone-colored facade of my official beer cellar is what looks to be a real live lime. Or at least half a real live lime anyway. No I didn’t go on a Cabo Wabo bender and Super Glue half a lime to my fridge. I’m more civilized than that. I got myself a Limer.
I know, I know. WTF is a Limer?
Well, a Limer is a half rubber lime that looks, feels and has all the characteristics of a real lime. That is if a real lime was made of rubber, had a magnet in it and could also OPEN BEER BOTTLES!
Yep. This bad boy doubles as a refrigerator magnet AND a bottle opener. The really cool thing is when you pop the top on a bottle of beer, the bottle cap actually sticks to the Limer because of the super strong magnet that’s embedded in it to make it stick to the fridge.
I’ve been using my Limer for about a month now and can honestly say that it’s one of the coolest bottle openers I’ve ever owned. There was an instance where it was leaving a sticky brown residue on the fridge, but I soon figured out that the reason was because I was spilling beer all over it and then slapping it back onto the fridge. I guess after a while the beer residue kind of built up. But other than that it’s been a really cool and novel conversation piece.
That being said, I do hereby announce that I have a few of these cool little Swiss Army Limes to give away to you guys! I’m going to give a few to those of you who have subscribed to our mailing list and a few to those of you who follow us on Twitter. The rest of you lazy jerks have to earn yours.
To get your own Limer, just send us a pic of you opening a beer in the most creative way possible. The most creative drunk will get themselves a free Limer.
