I am currently the proud owner of six fictional bottle caps (Always looking to add more to my collection if you have any suggestions!). I have ordered my collection in order of personal preference (or the I wish it was real factor)
A the end of my list is...Futurama. Which I hear is returning in 2010! This soda pop is created by the Slurm Worms, a race of slug-like aliens. All the galaxy's Slurm is made in a factory on their home world, Wormulon. However, this factory is a just a cover, the true secret of Slurm being a fluid made by the Slurm Queens. Through what I would say is quite a graphic process. It is because of this that Slurm is at the end of my list. However, a drink that tasty is still a little bit tempting. Hey don't judge, I love honey and that's bee spew.
Duff, Duff Light, and Duff Dry are the all same. Still, no one ever said Homer had a distinguished palette. This is a man who will eat a rotten 10-foot hoagie, 64 slices of American cheese and free sidewalk goo. This beer is only #5 on my list because of its lack of sophistication. However, I can honestly say we could all do with some Duffman commercials.
Romulan ale is a intoxicating alcoholic beverage of the Romulans from Star Trek. It has a blue color (it ranges in shades depending on the drinks age). This tantalizing liquid is three on my list for it's ability to be used for medical reasons. It's rarity is also a factor in my choice because of its current illegal status with the Federation. Even the Starfleet replicators have to be programed with the ale's genetic structure first to create it. Even with it being outlawed , almost every Starfleet officer has been shown indulging in it. So if you like some of this blue booze, the only way to find it is on the black market or to make allies with a Romulan fleet of Warbirds. Good Luck with that.
And the winner...Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Not the horrifying remake (seriously it gave me nightmares). This fizzing elixir isn't just tasty, but causes you to float. Who doesn't want that? The ability to fly from a simple sip. It would change the society in which we live. We could travel using this soft drink and release much fewer carbon emissions into the atmosphere. We would be transporting, using only our natural gases. It would be a more flatulent world, but a greener one. Hear me scientists, invent Wonka's Fizzy Lifting Drinks and save the polar bears!
FYI, the caps above were created in the same way as Sunday's post, just in case I choose to wear them as jewelry or give them away as presents.
Here are the images. Just in case you want to make your own fantasy bottle cap collection. These labels were either found online and altered or created entirely in photoshop.
Talk to you soon,
