Easter Basket Challenge


A friend challenged me to name 10 items that I would least like to find in my Easter basket. It’s a strange exercise, but the juxtaposition of mismatching elements has a quirky fascination to it if you squint hard enough.

Here is my list.

  • solar forks
  • aluminum napkins
  • propane-powered hairbrush
  • liver-flavored lollipops
  • chewless gum
  • glass toothpicks
  • balsa wood razor blades
  • Petoskey stone Frisbees
  • triangular bicycle tires
  • barbed wire socks


If you try this with your friends, feel free to share the results.
