Elder Gays Tell Me About Pull Tabs

Were you always cutting yourself on them? Or putting them in the can for convenience and swallowing them?

We made cool chainmail. You're an idiot.

I think OP means these R1. Yes, you would occasionally cut yourself. A little blood made Blatz taste better.

R2 Yes, those are the same ring tabs we've always used to make sheets of chainmaille. People make fantasy chest 'armour' out of them. Dog leashes, necklaces, totes, purses, whatever. There is enough demand that this not be a secret.

According Jimmy Buffett In Margaritaville, pop tops were gateways to getting drunk.

I blew out my flip flop Stepped on a pop top Cut my heel, had to cruise on back home But there's booze in the blender And soon it will render That frozen concoction that helps me hang on

For some reason, I thought about the putting it inside the can/choking fears thing yesterday...strange. No one talks about that anymore with the new tabs.

If you’re going to be an insane old post bumper, at least be consistent with your subject. This is the wrong kind of “tab”, R6.

You thought a paper cut hurt?

Some of us remember how we opened cans before those existed.

I always put my ring tab in the can. It NEVER came out or anywhere near my tongue.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
