Did anyone other than me ever call a store and make this prank call (back in the day)?  Well, I was tickled when I found these old Prince Albert tobacco cans years ago at a flea market.  Someone had long since painted them green.

It took a while, but finally one day I had an idea to use them to store screws, nails and pins.  I affixed a sample of each on the can and labled them with a white paint pen.
