Firefly Coasters Keep your Wood Shiny

by Shane McGlaun

My mom was big on coasters growing up. She had enough polish on the coffee table that you could play shuffleboard on it without scratching the table, and it repelled water like a duck’s back. Still, she wanted us to use coasters. As an act of civil disobedience I abstained, even when said coasters were literally touching my drink, I sat my drink on bare wood. Take that, mom!

The one saving grace of a well-balanced coaster is that you can chuck it ninja star style at your brother’s head and be quite accurate with enough practice. Now that I am older and have my own wood furniture, I still don’t use coasters because they are stupid. Most of them are stupid anyway. Though I actually quite like these Firefly coasters. There are four of them with different patterns and the requisite cork on one side.

The coasters fit into this little Blue Sun logo tin can thingy when they aren’t sitting on your table… unused. At least these coasters are cool to look at, even as your guests refuse to use them for drinks. You can get a set for $14.99(USD) at ThinkGeek.
