This is a total spin-off of the previous post. I want to know what the hell happened to the brown paper bag. The big, beautiful, brown, sturdy paper sack. I can remember when that was all that groceries came home in.
To this day I still remember the sound and smell of those bags. I miss them. We don’t get them anymore and I’ll tell you why: The wacko “environmental” movement has everyone convinced that the use of natural resources is Earth rape. Get this logic: So that we don’t murder trees we shall now make everything out of plastic. This is so, so contrary to what these fools claim to stand for. These fucking plastic bags are what is choking the environment. This plastic shit is what is fucking up my beaches and all the wildlife in the water and on the shore. Nice job you idealistic, stupid jack-offs.
Boy, did I ever get off topic. Here is what I originally intended to talk about.
The many uses for a paper sack
They hold stuff. Remember when they held groceries?
When we were kids we made costumes and masks out of them.
They were perfect for art projects of all kinds.
The small ones made lunch taste so much better than the plaid lunchboxes did.
Cats love them. (except yours Laurie B)
So do dogs and ferrets and parrots
They make great waste baskets. When it’s full, just throw the whole thing out.
They are good for ripening avacados, apricots or any other fruit that needs a little help.
In a pinch they are perfect for absorbing the grease from fried fish, fried potatoes, fried okra . . . anything fried I guess. Oh, and taco shells too. I don’t do pre-fabbed, store-bought taco shells.
There must be hundreds of uses for these bags. Tell me how you have used them.
