Pop tops

Americans mostly don’t remember what these are.  Jimmie Buffet stepped on one and had to cruise on back home. Stupid people still collect them because they think a cancer charity or kidney dialysis place will give free treatment in exchange for enough of these mostly worthless things.  

Where I am, they still have them.

I suspect it’s because in this country (not the USA), if you cut your foot on a sharp thing on the ground, you can’t sue anyone.  People here will just look at you like you are stupid for going barefoot around all those sharp things.

The one thing that is certain is that somewhere, someone, is still collecting them for their kid’s school charity collection of worthless things that magically turn into expensive things.  I still see that same old 25 year old hoax as if it’s a brand new thing.  As if no one has learned you can look that stuff up on the internet.

    But, but, but… You can make chains out of them to decorate your hooch. Hang them near your Chianti bottle candle holders. 😉
