I'll admit, I've never seen (or heard of) the BBC series The Prisoner that inspired this fun, easy how-to project, but I don't care. Etching "You Have Just Been Poisoned" on the bottom of a glass is straight clever, and would make an awesome gift for anyone. Sean says,
Fans of Patrick McGoohan’s classic BBC spy series The Prisonerwill recognize this gimmick from Episode 15, “The Girl Who Was Death.” It’s a pint glass with words etched on the bottom (in authentic “Village” font) that appear line-by-line as the liquid is imbibed. My version is the closest reproduction of the original I could achieve.
