You’re never to old to learn…. Tin Cans.


The new adult educational booklet for our area was delivered today and I’m  dumbfounded anyone would pay money for this crap  very excited for the next round of classes!

Last season we had :

You’re never too old to learn…. Spoons.

You’re never to old to learn…. Potatoes.

You’re never too old to learn…. Ukulele

You’re never too old to learn…. Chakra Toning.

You’re never too old to learn…. Mindfulness.


And this season?

We’ll start with a class about tin cans.



Yes, Tom. It’s true.

In Maine you can take a class that teaches you how to turn a tin can into a stove.





You’re welcome.

You can stop reading other blogs now, it won’t get any stupider than this.



tin can


I mean, come on…

When was the last time you fit a stove in your backpack?




Point taken. That kid might be able to…

But for the rest of us taking the class means that can of baked beans we had for dinner last night could be heating up our outdoor meals for months to come.



No, I wasn’t thinking of that particular heat source.

But then, I wasn’t thinking of this either when I searched Google….




Damn, that disturbing.

And it certainly makes their ad slogan a bit suspect….






Maybe you should use a Campbell’s soup can instead.

It worked for Warhol.

      1. For some reason I didn’t notice that they were links the first time I read it but yes, you did post links – I am sorry and will now go and hang my head in shame while people throw eggs at me.

  1. That’s it, I’m never going to wonder about adult education courses ever again, lol. You can close the book on this one River, it’s done. Oh wait the spoons class, yeah….unless their teaching how to kill someone with a spoon, then no thanks. 😉

  2. Mmm. I am a modern sort of reader … if you don’t hook me with the first paragraph, I am off to the next bright bauble in the bookstore …
    Tin chicanery failed and I moved on to the secret life of Lettuce Patches …
