Reese's Puffs and Snickers

We keep our recyclables in a pile on the counter. When the pile gets too big, we cart it off to the trash can out back.  We do it this way, because we feel it's more aesthetically pleasing than a second giant trashcan sitting in our kitchen.

When I say "we feel" I really mean "BH feels". 

This is all just background to explain why the following picture has so much trash in it.

Now on to today's post.

While making lunch the other day, I looked over at the recyclables pile and something caught my eye.

Hmm.  DJ Name Mixer.  Wonder what that's all about.  So I zoomed in closer.

2 Ways To Create Your Own DJ Name:
1.  Take the street you grew up on and the name of your first pet, then change all the "i's" to "y's"!

I'll stop with this option.  I don't know about the rest of you, but in my day, this DJ Name Mixer game was a little something we liked to call, "What's Your Porn Star Name?"

Let's childhood pet was named Pussycat...and the street that I grew up on was my porn star name is Pussycat Astoria.  Yep, that sounds about right.  It has porn star written all over it.

WHAT were the folks at Reese's Puffs thinking?  Perhaps some young execs thought it would be funny to repackage this game and pitch it to the CEO, never thinking it would actually get approved for production.  And now they're having a good snicker (as in laugh, not the candy bar) whenever they think of all the 10 year olds in America walking around with porn star names.

Yep, I remember this game but I never heard about changing the i to y. So makes me Ben Wyllow. Not very pornstar like and definitely not jazzy enough to be a DJ.

Wow, Ben Willow. I think for you this game could be called, "what's your male heart throb name?" :)
