Well, you two pretty much wrapped it up before I got here. I’m just going to close the door on my way out…


What you did thar…

Yeah, ain’t nothin’ better than a nice big piece of crumpled-up aluminum foil to chew on. Nothing else tastes quite like it!

Tinfoil head wear aficionados face enough prejudice as it is, but to criticize tasteful maker variations, such as the clever braided tinfoil pigtail wig? What’s next, making fun of schizophrenic cancer patients? :frowning:

I wouldn’t want my kid to grow up and marry a Tinner…

You probably don’t read/speak French: ‘brindacier’ or more correctly ‘brin d’acier’ means filament/little-piece/bit of steel.

I remember asking my mother to make one of these for me but she said “oh, no honey, you’re already too tin”

Can’t stand these puns -they’re giving me tinnitus.

It appears the author has issues with orange juice…

Only a Tinner can call another Tinner Tinner…

You know, making jokes about homemade costumes, in regards to a picture from an era when the majority of costumes were homemade, really doesn’t work well.
