The 14 M.P.H. Beer Cooler

20080605-beergang.jpgWhen I look at this motorized, scooter-based beer cooler, you know what I see? I see a marauding gang of 12 to 15 frat boys, on spring break, riding from hotel to motel to pool to beach.

That's not a slam on frat boys. You see, the next logical and ridiculously glorious extension of this "14 M.P.H. beer cooler" is that you'd get together with your buddies and form a 14 M.P.H. beer cooler biker gang. Fraternity brothers already have the legendary party skills; they're notorious for pranks; they're in college, so they've got the time; and they could use house funds to equip themselves.

A 500-watt motor drives the cooler, which can hold up to 24 twelve-ounce cans and eight pounds of ice, for a range of 15 miles on a charge. Scooler supports up to 300 pounds. $499.95, from Hammacher Schlemmer [via Restaurant Girl]
