Bottle Unopener

Brenda always drank her beers in twos, and I’ll tell you why. She had recently been given an androgynous bottle opener that bent like a flimsy spoon each time she used it. “Beer Bottle Opener” it clearly stated on both sides.

She simply drank her beer, flipped the Beer Bottle Opener over and used the other side of it to crack the next one, and every time it bent the same amount, exactly fifteen degrees, so it always returned to straight.
