2 guys 1 cup

If you are a reader of this blog than you know all about The Phi and her funny antics, and you hear about PR Dad from time to time, and this is all from my perspective so you know me way better than you ever hoped to. You even know about our dog Roo.

There is one person in our house that you do not know much about. Uncle Matty.

Uncle Matty has lived with PR Dad and I for....... well a long time. He is currently working on his MS and we do not get to see too much of him these days. Now if there is one thing you should know about Uncle Matty its this... He is a passionate man. He is a talented musician who uses lyric writing as a way to expresses his deepest of emotions and by deep emotions I mean songs about midgets, his feelings about the French, burning down houses and techno music.

There is one thing that Uncle Matty loves more than anything else in the world. His heart has and always will belong to one thing......

Diet Coke

And not one can will satisfy his thirst. Not one 20 oz bottle could quench it. Instead this is what Uncle Matty uses to hold the amount of Diet Coke he needs daily......

32 oz Gatorade bottle for size comparison

Yes you have seen this ridiculously big tubs at your local gas station. You have probably wondered "Who buys these things? Who can drink that much soda?"

The answer is Uncle Matty.

Uncle Matty is a very happy man with his cup. Although I think by law that cup needs a car seat.

Matty was so excited to share his new cup with PR Dad. But PR Dad was a bit terrified of this giant monstrosity being in our home. But Uncle Matty convinced him that this cup not only holds 100 oz of liquid (yes thats one hundred!) but can bring the Punk Rock Family together. This thing has multiple holes for straws on top. All 4 of us could literally drink from this thing at the same time. Aww nice thought but for the record.........


Uncle Matty just called and sent this picture over.

Yes its seat belted in.
He just filled it up and can you guess what he paid to fill it up?

99 cents!!!!


  1. Gotta love Uncle Matty. Love the pic of him and PR Dad.

  2. Hey I know that AM/PM ha ha

  3. Anonymous6:26 PM

    doesn't all that aspartame scare uncle matty???

  4. I saw this giant cup before. In anatomy class it held a human brain. At Costco it held two year's worth of mayonnaise.
    100 oz is 8.3 cans of diet Coke, or about five times adult bladder capacity.
    Are your kidneys screaming "uncle (Matty)" yet :-)

  5. Holy crap he seat belted it in. Haha! Does it have a name?

  6. The kidneys exist to excrete nitrogen and maintain fluid balance in the body. They love it when I drink gallons of the sweet nectar since they barely have to work. Those poor bastards that bought into the atkins diet will be enjoying spending their golden years hooked to a dialysis machine from all the excess protein that their poor kidneys had to get rid of.

    Kidney failure can happen easier from not drinking enough fluid (diet coke is around 99% water) than from drinking too much fluid.

    If I were to replace that with regular coke, the resulting blood sugar spike would likely trigger kidney failure like it does in diabetics.

    Uncle Matty out.

It had been awhile but Joey recently convinced me to head out on an off-roading adventure. Mostly because the San Berdoo trail ends inside J...
