In the old "flea market" days of the 70's you would ofter find these kind of bottles for sale. I think they even found their way into some head shops and c-stores.

This is what happens when one enjoys an "herbal" experience and has access to a blow torch.

LOL
I use to see them at the sleazy town carnivals when I was a kid.
I always wanted to buy one but my Mon would not allow me too. LOL She used to say to me " those bottles are a bunch of crap".
Looking at them now, dear old Mom had a point. LOL

Yea, I have a Pepsi one from when I was a kid, it was filled with colored water. Our local county fair had them. You'd stand a marked distance away and try to ring the neck with plastic rings. If you rung it, it was yours!

They're just regular bottles that were heated and stretched. I've been seeing a bunch on ebay lately.
