Who, I ask you, is the coolest human being on the planet? Well yesterday (continuing through today and possibly tomorrow) it was Beth F. for sending me this rocking shot glass from the Oakland Zoo.

Awesome things in this photo include: Oakland Zoo Shot Glassitude, my thumb, waffle-weave polyester couch.

Additionally, I also recently acquired a Honolulu Zoo shot glass. So that brings the collection up to 39! I’ll tell you this… whoever supplies me with my 40th zoo or aquarium shot glass will get something really special. I won’t divulge exactly what it is, but it will involve glitter and puffy paint…

    Why not make it “zoo, aquarium and insectarium” shot glass collection?
    Then I could be the 40th. I’m pretty desperate these days. But not the sort of desperation that some glittery puff paint couldn’t take care of.

    I work for the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle in the Gift Shop and could easily send you one of ours.
