See also: Rejected Miller Lite Delivery Systems Miller Lite has introduced a new Punch Top Can to increase airflow to your drink hole, "reducing glug and resulting in an improved, smoother pour." Which actually translates to faster times for shotgunning.

The small indenture on the top of the can be opened by various instruments, like say a small stick off the ground, a neighbor's fancy fake nail, a claw from a stray cat, a golf tee, or even as Miller Lite suggests, a dollar bill -- a fiver if you're a high-roller. Nickels won't work, however.

Instructions go like this: Simply set the can on a solid surface, place your chosen opener against the edge of the can and use the leverage to open the second tab. Tilt head back so the beer has a straight path down throat, swallow big, and -- finally -- beat grandma in a beer shotgun race. That'll shut her old ass up.

The new easy-flow brews will be available in stores this week.


Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
