Seth knew it was going to be a bad day when he couldn't find his spray

Well, uh, technically it's a stream straw... er, you spray when you lose
it... Just sayin'

Upon reflection, I believe that they have cleverly found a way to escape. I
don't understand how it's possible, but I don't understand god either.

And then there's the problem of clogged nozzles. I've never had a can of chain
lube I could fully empty. Even WD-40 clogs up. And Pam.

I think you're on the right track. We all know that safety pins metamorphose
into coat hangers, a large number of which will, if left alone in the dark long
enough, consolidate into a bicycle; surely there is a similar process at work
If a mayo jar is designed as the ultimate resting place of WD40 straws, what
effect does throwing out your mayo jars as soon as they're empty have on straw
migration? Has the recent imposition of recycling on glass and plastic jars
caused a decline in the straw population?
