Using a sphere of ice (as opposed to a cube) in your whiskey-rocks is nice because the round ice melts more slowly than the square stuff (better surface-area/volume ratio). Now a Japanese company has introduced a mold for making a perfect, seamless ice-sphere:

Which is why teabagging is an effective way to raise the temperature of hypothermic bums.

I'm glad to see that the Wikipedia article refers to the John Waters movie Pecker (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0126604/). That's where I was exposed to this term, so to speak.

While the movie didn't inspire me to experiment with this technique, it did lead me to buy a Canonet (http://www.camerapedia.org/wiki/Canon_Canonet_QL_17_GIII)on ebay. I love that little camera.

a sphere of ice

Very common in Japan. At better bars, you occasionally see bartenders picking away at blocks of to make a sphere for the whisky drinkers.

Wow, just stumbled on to this thread. Mr. Ed, I almost had bourbon coming out of my nose, just hilarious.

Cheers!
