The Freedom Tray has been out for a while, and I trust most of you already fulfilled your patriotic duty by purchasing one or more. You're spending your 4th of July with grilled meats, fireworks and domestic beer, all spread out together in front of you on the Freedom Tray's red-white-and-blue surface! It's like eating off a flag, without having to wonder "Does it count as desecration if I spill some of my potato salad?" Anyway, for you hippies who don't already own one of these for every room of the house (the bathroom one can simultaneously hold toilet paper, magazines, candles and snacks!), this is a "revolutionary food and beverage tray." The site's animation makes it look like an air hockey table, until the super-sized fast food containers plop into place, revealing its true purpose.
There is one question to ask about every person, animal and object you encounter on July 4: Is this person/animal/object patriotic? The makers of the Freedom Tray are asked this year-round, so much so that "Is this a patriotic tray?" appears in the FAQ section. Of course, it should go without saying that the Freedom Tray qualifies. In fact, (talking only to Freedom Tray-owning Americans here), your newfound ability to carry around copious amounts of food and drink without spilling them serves as a glorious metaphor for the liberties your country provides!
I'm haunted by a recurring vision of a skeleton flipping me off. To avoid seeing this terrifying image in bumper sticker form, I pay someone with a blank bumper to drive in front of me at all times.
Cons: causes bad nightmares. I used to have to eat beef until I passed out to have these kind of terrors, but this machine does it for me every time I fall asleep inside it.
