Tie Knot Water Balloon Filler is a summer must have gadget

It's HOT in Texas in the summer. I mean really hot. Fat hairy dudes are banned from walking in the grass during droughts out of fear the friction might start a forest fire. That means that many people end up doing something with water to keep cool. My kids always want to have a water balloon war. The problem is neither of them can fill their balloons.

I end up filling balloons the whole time while they try to bust them on my head. The balloons are a pain in the butt to tie off. That is what takes so long. ThinkGeek has a new toy called the Tie Knot Water Balloon Filler that is perfect for balloons and just about anyone can use it. The thing will fill your balloon for you and then all you need to do is wrap the end of the balloon around the tie part.

After twisting and wrapping the end of the balloon, you just slip it off and the thing ties itself. The claim is you can fill and tie a balloon in 30 seconds. I bet my kids could even use this so I can get some water balloon payback of my own. You can buy one now for $9.99.
