That's the web site for Acme Klein Bottles.
I ordered it as soon as I read Amara's message. The smallest bottle and
shipping cost $36.00, but the bottle is not the essence. Amara described
the literature that accompanied the bottle. Rather than re-state her
quote, I recommend you visit the web site. The guy (Chris stoll) who
makes these things deserves the money even if I never actually receive
After I filled in the web form and sent the $36.00, I remembered my vow
to ALWAYS use Google to try to get a better deal if possible. As far as
I can tell, this is the only place to get one. There is a sweet story on
the web from another customer who encountered Chris at a fair or
something, and who had no money with her. Chris simply gave her a bottle
and asked her to send the money later.
When my wife checked the credit card bill vie the web, she saw the
charge to ACME Klein bottles and freaked out completely. She wanted to
know if I had gone into business with Wyle E. Coyote.
