Sullivan's Drinking Bird

My grandfather, who died in 1947, had one of these, and I was highly impressed by it. Many years later, I bought one for myself. I don't know if my kids remember it. I even set it up again when we moved here to Alvin, but I don't remember what I did with it after that. I think I'll look for it.

I never had one but I remember them.

I remembered reading years ago that Eddie Albert invented the drinking bird (and bomb sights as well). And after a quick Google search, it apears I'm not the only one who heard that.

If it all stems from some comment he made on a record album cover, then maybe it was just a joke. But who knows.....
