Express Lane Combinations

A friend of mine used to be a cashier at the grocery store and when I asked her what the weirdest combination of items was that she scanned, she said without hesitation, "Neosporin and Cheetos."

So Ryan and I have been thinking of funny combinations including:
  1. Five bottles of Coke and some Fruity Pebbles
  2. Five 2-liters of Mountain Dew, some diapers, and a road map
  3. A pack of mild Italian sausages and a tub of vaseline
  4. Habanero peppers and Preparation-H
  5. Vaseline, Preparation-H, and a mop
  6. A can of Pork 'n Beans and a lighter
  7. A pack of suet (because you just reeeeally want to feed the birds)
It's by no means a novel exercise and seems to fall into various categories of humor...mostly bathroom and sexual. Though I think Preparation-H or ointments in general could hold their own category. I just like the non-verbal stories they tell.

    Today Robbie and I went to the grocery and bought about $30 bucks worth of cleaning supplies, and a big bottle of gin. We were planning a cleaning bender.

  2. Did you play the gin off as another cleaning agent? That would have been great! Fake conversation like..."and then you just run the gin through the dishwasher and the odor is poof! Gone!"
