Shirtless dudes

I don't know who these barefoot, shirtless guys are or what exactly their original purpose was. I only know they keep getting donated and I can't stop staring at them.

Shake The Can!

This MJB Coffee "Shake The Can!" lid was one of the first things I ever photocopied to include in the very first issue of Junk Pirate zine. 
I guess you could call it one of the first pieces of Junk Pirate Art, too, since it has been proudly displayed in my kitchen for over six years. 
Or maybe it's just a stupid coffee can lid.

Either way, another one finally came in and here it is.

I especially like the phrase "Brimful!". 
And the commanding punctuation. No less than five exclamation points!

It appears to be just like regular Spirograph, except with metallic pens.

Cyber Cop

Nice package of cheap-o Chinese import flea market toy police set.

The best part is the inset photo of real police detectives... doing paperwork!

Adult diaper brand names that instill confidence.

A recent donation pick-up included an assortment of adult-sized diapers. This industry-wide sampling of disposable protective underwear was so thorough that I almost shit myself.

Not just the popular brands like Depend, but also lesser seen products like GoodNites, Certainty, and Affirm. And the classic generic "Walgreen's Protective Underwear". 

This donation cut down Junk Store employee bathroom breaks by an amazing 75%.

Keep Your Ticket

The ever growing tower of ticket rolls. Young J-Bone was the first to figure out the you just leave the house with a pocketful of a few tickets of each color and when you get to the club, figure out what color they are using that night for drink tickets. Ta-daaa. Drinks on the Junk Store tonight!
And by the looks of the clock it's just about closing time.

Or hoard 'em for years and post something like this:
