Should I Be Disturbed?

today while shopping for some groceries i bought a six pack of guinness extra stout

and guinness draught

so that i could see which one i liked more. while cooking dinner i drank a bottle of the extra stout and after dinner i opened a bottle of the draught and took a swig. to my surprise i heard something rattle. the only place it could have come from was the bottle, but just to be sure i took another swig. at this point i was quite curious what was rattling in my bottle. was it a bottle cap or possibly a syringe? what ever it was i wanted to know. so i poured my beer into a glass so that i could get what ever it was out of my bottle. after while slowly pouring out my beer i noticed that the object wasn't coming out with the beer. when the bottle was free of liquid i took a peek and noticed a white and blunt looking object in the bottom. next i did what any dare devil would do. i stuck my finger into the bottle to feel of the blunt object. what ever it was i then knew that it was white, blunt, and plastic. to get the object out of the bottle i tried to break the bottle over the trash can by hitting it with a pair of scissors, but no go. that's when i decided to hit it with a pair of pliers. still no go. so i gripped the mouth of the bottle with the pliers and pulled, and the bottle broke. when i raised the butt of the bottle in the air the object came out.

i still don't know what it is, and i'm not sure if i should be disturbed or not. i can't say that i am, but i can't say that i shouldn't be either. i think i will call the number on the bottle and let them know about the strange object in my bottle. maybe i can find out what it is and what it does?

Jbird, it is only a widget! It makes your beer in a can taste like that from a keg by releasing a stream of bubbles into your beer. Every guinness can has one. You can find out more about the widget by visiting www.guinness.com/us_en/beer/draughtcan/default.aspx

the bottles of the draught have it too! But, it is easier to get the widget out of the can:) Have a nice weekend and stay warm!!

obviously i'm new to the whole guinness thing, and i've decided i like the draught more than i like the extra stout.

I would have never known either if it hadn't been for Jeff. I don't like guinness, but i think it sounds cool when you open one:)
