Mr. Redneck was in a peculiar tea drinking accident that left him unable to suck in any way. (I said it was a peculiar accident.) His jaw was wired shut and both his arms were broken so he couldn't reach his mouth. His wife left him a drink on the table before leaving him all alone to go shopping. He was very thirsty but could not suck fluid through a straw or tip the drink in order to drink it. Then he noticed that his drink was in one of those sealed boxes where only the straw can enter through a small sealed hole. He leaned forward and drank it. Without tipping it or using any special devices (other than the straw) how was he able to get the drink out of the container?
