    Ahh yes, that's when Apple's stock was in the toilet and there weren't so many of their fans running around.

    I guess I remember the cracker can...but I do remember this when it first came out.

    Notice it says “newfangled.” Yep, this is the ORIGINAL can of Pringles from the 1970s!

    When empty, we would punch a hole in the bottom of it and created our own Bong!

    I had an Atari, hooked to one of those big TVs that doubled as a piece of furniture. Playing games like Breakout or Space Invaders always involved a lot of "help" from the cats. :)
