Feature:
  • Did you ever wonder how shot glasses got their name? According to the overpaid workers in our Unemployed Philosophers Research Department, shot glasses got their name in the Old West. Cowboys would enter saloons and trade bullets for small glasses of whiskey. We often suspect our researchers of making crap up, but this theory has the ring of truth to it.
  • Our country has always fostered a relationship between liquor and guns - the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms is just one example. (Dick Cheney is another.) And so we're offering this cool and unique set of Shot Glasses. They're decorated with a variety of targets, and one with a realistic bullet hole. Includes detailed instructions for drinking and shooting responsibly. So buy a set of Shot Glasses and get ready for some high caliber drinking!
  • Includes six 2 oz. shot glasses in each set, and they come packaged in a fun colorful gift box. Shot glasses are dishwasher safe.
  • From the Unemployed Philosophers Guild. Don't worry. We are employed, just not as philosophers. We're a small, Brooklyn based company specializing in gifts for the sophisticated gift giver. For whatever you need, we have presents of mind.

Brought to You by The Unemployed Philosophers Guild

The origins of the Unemployed Philosophers Guild are shrouded in mystery. Some accounts trace the Guild's birth to Athens in the latter half of the 4th century BCE. Allegedly, several lesser philosophers grew weary of the endless Socratic dialogue endemic in their trade and turned to crafting household implements and playthings. (Hence the assertions that Socrates quaffed his hemlock poison from a Guild-designed chalice, though vigorous debate surrounds the question of whether it was a "disappearing" chalice.)

Others argue that the UPG dates from the High Middle Ages, when the Philosophers Guild entered the world of commerce by selling bawdy pamphlets to pilgrims facing long lines for the restroom. Business boomed until 1211 when Pope Innocent III condemned the publications. Not surprisingly, this led to increased sales, even as half our membership was burned at the stake.

More recently, revisionist historians have pinpointed the birth of the Guild to the time it was still cool to live in New York City's Lower East Side. Two brothers turned their inner creativity and love of paying rent towards fulfilling the people's needs for finger puppets, warm slippers, coffee cups, and cracking up at stuff.
