Special announcement:

This too, my dear followers, is another semi-serious hub. It all depends on how you look at it and what frame of mind you are in when you read it.

We've heard the "voice crying in the wilderness" for years now. "Please recycle." What a simple plea. What an easy thing for us pampered Americans to do. I included myself in my "pampered" description. Let's face it. We are soft in many ways.

Make up a festive carnival  game called Lucky Penny. The object of the game is to charge friends and others a small fee to see if they can get a penny or two inside an empty beer bottle. What do they win? Oh, maybe a dollar.

Proof positive.

Let's pretend that you have a day off from your job which lately you have been putting in hours and hours of overtime and the stress is about to eat you alive. Then out of the blue, your stern and disciplined boss says, "Barkstown, you have been working like a dog. Take tomorrow off. Rest and enjoy yourself."

You almost faint from disbelief. Normally, your boss is the type of man who loves to call you into his office ten minutes before quitting time and informs you to "Be here tomorrow. I know that it's your day off, but time is money."

You take him up.

On his offer. What will you do with an entire 24 hours by yourself? No girlfriend. No buddies to eat and drink you into poverty. So here you are on your way to the package store to pick up a six-pack of cold beer. But what are your plans?

You are simply going to stay in your sweat's, turn on ESPN Classic and watch whatever classic game is on and sip your cold beer without a worry in the world. You have taken the time to switch your phone to voice mail, locked your front door and pulled the curtains to give the impression that you are not home.

The beer in cans and bottles has always been the way we view beer cans and bottles. When we pour ourselves a beer, into the garbage the empties go.

You have it made.

Barefoot, reclining on your old sofa that you've had since college. A great basketball game is on television and you are sipping your beer. But soon, say early afternoon, you are running low on cold beer, so you walk (not drive. Thank you!) back to the package store and purchase another six pack of cold beer to finish out the day.

At day's end, you get drowsy from all of the cheese curls, nacho's and cold beer, so you take a nap. No one's here to nag at you. It's your house and your day off. But when you wake up you have a disgusting surprise waiting for you: There are 12 empty beer cans laying conspicuously on your floor.

What do you do with your empty beer cans and bottles?

See results

You turn sick.

At yourself for not being more recycle-minded. You are a sensitive 30-something. Single, got a good job that is very stressful, but the pay is fantastic and you are not in a relationship with any girl anywhere. So why did you become so lazy when it came to putting your empty beer cans to a good use?

While you wait for an answer, you just sit and gaze at the empty beer cans. It is as if they are having a conversation with you. It's not because you drank a half-case of beer. It's because your conscience is tell you . . .

10 Things You Can Do With Empty Beer Cans or Bottles

10.) Empty Beer Cans or Bottles - - make excellent flower containers. The various colors in the beer label mixed with the color of the flowers. Wow. You are a very creative guy and you will have a girlfriend with creativity like this.

9.) Baby Toys - - can be made with no effort or money spent if you simply take a handful of gravel and place it inside an empty beer can and hold it up to the fretting baby and rattle the can back and forth. He or she will instantly become engrossed with the sound being emitted from the beer can.

8.) Crush an Empty - - beer can on your head and girls will think: "What a he-man!" But you need to practice first in order to not injure yourself. Note: I personally do not recommend that you use this tip to put good use to an empty beer can or bottle. (See video on this hub). The can and bottle that John "Bluto" Belushi uses in this scene from Animal House are of course, movie props, so you might think about this tip a long time before you actually put it into action.

7.) Find a Hermit Crab - - the next time you visit the beach. Since you are a single guy, you need a friend. Catch a Hermit Crab and take it home with you. He will love the empty beer can you have placed in an aquarium. Hermit Crabs love things like this.

6.) Empty Beer Bottles - - must not be tossed into the garbage. No. Visit the websites that talk about "How to Make Beautiful Artwork with Glass Bottles," and before you know it, you have another hobby.

5.) Innocent Guy Fun - - is always in style. Take an empty beer can, place it on the ground, and light a firecracker that you have placed underneath the can. Wow! What an explosion and no one is hurt.

4.) Hummingbirds - - will love the empty beer can feeder you have given them. Just wash the beer can thoroughly with scalding water. Fill it with sugar and water and place it on your front porch and before long, hummingbirds will be flocking to get a free meal.

3.) Empty Beer Bottles - - mixed with your impression of a wind storm will sound great when you record it and add special affects. If you do get a date, she will be more loving if you and her sit and just listen to your two-hour tape of a wind storm with special affects you have put into the tape and then playing it in slow motion.

2.) Burglar Alarms - - are very expensive. So take four or five empty beer cans and fill them with small rocks. Then sit them on the inside of your front or back door. The minute a burglar tries to break into your apartment, he will knock over the beer cans causing a loud banging noise to wake you up so you can summon the police.

1.) Make Yourself Some - - extra cash by actually doing a little manual labor by picking up empty beer cans that non-recycle-minded, self-centered people have tossed from their automobiles and littered your attractive landscape. Think of this tip like this: You will be getting some exercise thus strengthening your heart and collecting empty beer cans for a lot of cash later on.

Good night to my Very-Appreciated Followers.
