We've been inundated with emails promoting this amazing toilet-cum-aquarium for the past few weeks -- to the point that some of us around the office have created a running joke about making a movie about a killer fish that lives in the toilet called FIN ROT! It's a fish tank, it's a toilet tank, it's a terrarium (yes you can put a lizard in there), it's .....

Almost-fabulous intern and alcohol enthusiast Jonathan Beckhardt weighs in on He'Brew....

I used to have a recurring nightmare as a child that I was trapped in the opening credits of Scooby Doo. It was kind of an erotic nightmare: the rainbow-cartoon swamps, the undulating haunted mansions, the moaning ghosts with their morphenomenal yaws.
