Fred is, alas, no longer with us, having lived to a good, ripe old age. So this picture is actually a few years old. But Fred, being the great little guy he was, used to say that it doesn’t hurt to keep a corkscrew in the glove compartment of your car. You never know when there’s going to be that impromptu picnic or when someone else forgot theirs.
Of course, you don’t want any open containers of alcohol in your car and designated drivers are important. We couldn’t let Fred drink – he was such a mean drunk – or drive. He couldn’t reach the pedals and see over the dash, and then there was that problem of no opposable thumbs.
And Fred was… Well, he looked like a dog, but we think he may have been part Martian.
