of course!   :-)
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 
the bottle.

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.
