Planning to get Tanked up at Christmas?

Feel free to discuss anything and everything to do with tanking here!

Well..if a spot of serious imbibing is anticipated in the so-called festive season, what better present could you ask for than this £35 offering from The Tank Museum:
Tank_wine_bottle_holder_1400x.jpg
Bottle holder for the bibulous Tank obsessed

It's advertised as a 'Black Friday' saving along with other sometimes bizarre gift ideas, such as Tank Museum chocolate (presumably bullet-proof ;) ). Mind you, it could be a 'Blackdog' Friday if you quaffed the entire contents of the battling booze holder. :crazy:
I expect someone could get to RC this 13.5in recycled steel novelty. Then it would be possible to transport the booze around the table with minimum participation from inebriated guests, and ditto, when placed on the floor for those already under the table... :haha: :haha:

Better still, in addition to the RC function, if that barrel could be adapted to dispense booze, or act as some sort of bottle opener...... :D it would be a real winner. :thumbup:

You have such a dirty mind. . . . ;)

Could always make one out of an old 24th scale tank, or, convert an RC truck to pass the bottle along the table :thumbup:

How about something like a Nashorn where the neck of a bottle of bubbly is the gun barrel, and it has a mechanism to "pop" the cork. So much scope for a bottle carrier :think:

Interesting find Roy :thumbup:

Or....it could be sent along to the enemy sentry box, or machine gun nest, to get the enemy guards completely pissed.

Fags, booze, gambling, knitting, women and drugs.... done them all. Everything in moderation l say, but l draw a line at tea. Tea should be strong, black and unlimited. Its the drink of a real tanker and the addiction of a real addict. Tanks - no problem 8) 12 sugars please:

You sound like me lol.except the tea, yes, I like it strong, but has to have some milk and just one sugar please. . . .

Oh, and I've got it down to just two on your list. . . . Mind you, substitute knitting with fast bikes, then we would be alike ;)

Fast bikes has been a life long addiction BUT I've been banned from riding them - no, not the courts but worse....the woman!

Knit racing is great. My last outing l came 2nd with a 439 yard long scarf but I've had to move into metal needle formula as my wooden specials catch fire.

I liked my biking too, but a tug from the law a few years back and having a driving job didn't mix very well :thumbdown: I switched to track riding full time after that but it's rather expensive and the older I got the less well I bounced :haha: :haha:
