But I'd like to get my buddy a birthday gift he's been wanting for years. He's a good guy. But I don't have time or skill to make one.

What I want is a Bible with a space cut into it for a bottle of booze.

Anybody have any idea where to get one? I've searched google and ebay...

LOL, has your friend offered any explanation of why he'd want such a gift? I'm not particularly religious but when I found a King James Bible (unfortunately, not the version referenced in "Number of the Beast") w/ Jesus' words written in red ink, so they look creepier, I could not resist. I just keep my booze in the liquor cabinet though so I have no idea where one might get such a thing.

Maybe in some 'dry' area? Some friends of ours live in a dry county in Kentucky and are always regaling us w/ stories about the legal histrionics that they engage in. Perhaps pint Bibles would be more common there?

Tavish,

That looks great. I may go for that. But I'm hoping that I can get one that is in a real Bible. If anyone else knows of a place, please let me know.

That was my thinking. Not sure a store or company that destroyed real bibles in that way would last long. :-o

Me, I'd use an encyclopedia or dictionary, but to each his own. B-)

:-b


It's just a book. I don't think anyone is going to threaten you with eternal hellfire if you do this. ;-)



Why a bible, though? Why not a dictionary or some other big book?
