So I read the thread title and with great excitement, click on it with the hopes of seeing some UL nirvana for the Sierras.

I never wish injury or illness on anyone but in your case, I'll be content with you locking your keys in your car or something along those lines ;)

Lyrics/Music T.Koehler & I.Caesar/R.Henderson

Once Mother said My little pet
you ought to learn your alphabet
So in my soup I used to get
All the letters of the alphabet
I learned them all from A to Z
And now my Mothers giving me


Animal crackers in my soup
Monkeys and rabbits loop the loop
Gosh oh gee but I have fun
Swallowing animals one by one

Ian I think the moral thing to do is pray for folks like Mitchell...

Something along these lines

But being ULers I think we should pray his Cuban tarp leaks, his McHale pack is too short, etc. Where's Doug, he could rewrite the lyrics for use.

"Where's Doug, he could rewrite the lyrics for use."

Sorry, I've been busy butchering The Beatles instead:

To the tune of the Beatles’ “A Day in the Life” (my apologies to John and Paul)

I ate some chips today, oh boy.
And then I stood upon my bathroom scale
And though the numbers were quite sad
Well, I just had to laugh
My gut reached to my calf

I blew my diet at McD’s
I didn’t notice that my girth had changed
A crowd of doctors stood and stared
They thought they’d seen it all
Now they know how high that I can get my darn cholesterooooooollllllll

I’d love to loooooooooooooooose sooooooooooome weiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight.

(Actually this is an old one, I found it while rummaging around on my hard drive before a computer migration)

Edit to add: love the 'bear canister'!

Ken, it says net weight 46oz, but we've all learned never to trust listed weights. 5,160 calories total. I think you're best off refilling it with peanut M&Ms and olive oil.

Or honey.

This made me chuckle. Thank you!

Now here's the real question, how much weight can you save by removing the label stickers?

My internet got glitchy when the picture was only about 20% loaded so I was fully expecting this to be a thread posted by someone using one of these food containers as a bear canister. (You know the people I'm talking about, we've all seen them.) I got geared up for the responses, and then the rest popped up.

I got double punked by this thread. Well played, BPL.
