Monitoring Your Thirst

Apparent wackjob Randall Flann has been making fluid-holding headgear for years. Gridiron fans can dispense beverages from a football, and hockey addicts can wear a big beer-filled puck on their heads. Computer aficionados aren't being left out. For $30, you can get a big plastic thing that looks like a monitor, fill it full of Jolt and drink your brains out!

By the way, Flann calls himself "Madman." Can someone who calls himself mad truly be mad? And of course, the question of the hour: Is Weird Al Yankovic actually weird? I say no, but you can disagree at [email protected].
