    Tiki Torch Can replacement... It came to me after a Coors

    Hello All,
    I've found a replacement for the Tiki Torch metal container. A 16oz Coors Silver bullet can.
    It fits perfectly.
    One of my Tiki Torch cans had a leak, and I was too lazy to replace it. I had a busy day today, so had a Coors 16oz Silver Bullet while I was relaxing in the pool. Finished my beer, and was looking at the empty can. I had 2 of the 3 torches lit, due to the 3rd leaking.

    I noticed the can had a big mouth, similar to the Tiki torch. Thought oh what the heck, let me check it out. Low and behold a perfect fit. The Tiki Torch top screwed on perfectly.

    BRAVO!!!!!
    I don't drink, but when I buy me some Tikis next year, I'm going to have to collect me some cans from neighbors & friends!!! *plugs nose*

    Also, seeing as I don't drink, the following question won't seem quite so silly....
    They actually make a Coors can /w a threaded top, like a glass bottle, but made entirely out of aluminum??

    Yes, 16oz aluminum cans. Also the Miller and Miller Lite also work.

    I wonder if a can of Mega Monster would work as well? I drink way too many of those **** things, lol.
