      The makers of Kikkerland shot glasses sure do have a sense of humor! I also like the Crystal Skull. Great amount of research you put into this hub, I love it. Voted up and all the 5 ratings. :)

      I never knew there were so many clever ideas for shot glasses. I don't really care for skulls, but I'm with you, the Fred and Friends Doomed one is very cool. The Dublino certainly is the classiest of the bunch.
