Crystal Skull Bottles: Just in Time for Halloween

I went by a liquor store last night in my quest to slowly restock my wine rack. I was amused to see that they are now carrying Crystal Head Vodka. According to the staff, a lot of people are buying it just so they can have a skull-shaped bottle sitting on a shelf somewhere; they have no intention of ever opening it.

I don't think I'm willing to pay $50 for a shelf ornament. The store staff says customer reports on the vodka itself (for those who actually tried it) are mixed: some like it, some hate it.

I left it in the store, having better things to spend my money on (a sentiment that the salesperson shared, actually). Come to think of it Moldovan wines are both pretty good and typically come in interesting bottles.

There are more important things in life to blow fifty bucks on. Seriously. Although the skull shaped bottle would be cool! (I can get you a transparent plastic skull for far less money and it's far more durable than a glass vodka bottle!)
