Oh happy, joyous, carefree day of days. To anyone who has ever replaced a nearly full can of WD-40 because they lost the red straw (or worse, stolen a replacement straw from a can on the store shelf — you know who you are, cretin), raise an aerosol can in a silicone-y salute. The WD-40 people recently issued a press release announcing the arrival of the Smart Straw, an invention that makes the old, detachable straw obsolete. The company is officially launching the new can of silicone at the SEMA show in Las Vegas, the virtual homeland of silicone cans, as it were. Amen, brother. [Update: It's not made of Silicone! Damn, and that joke just wrote itself.]

Possibly the most important press release of SEMA? [Dubspeed Driven]
