A Coor's Lighthouse
I do not know why I always seem to be the last to pick up on internet legends but this one really takes me back to my bachelorhood. In Ogden, Utah, a single man had been renting a townhouse for eight years. He was a model tenant. He never complained, he kept a low profile, and he was always on time with the rent. But then he moved.
It seems that the tenant was a Coor's Light drinker and due to the estimated 70,000 cans left in the apartment must have drank a 12 pack a day for the length of his stay. Not only did he keep the cans but he also kept the empty carton containers. I hope the 800 bucks that was garnished for turning in the cans to the recycler paid the cleaning bills.
I have heard of packrats but this is a little out of control. I bet the cleaning staff bitched to high heaven about the fetid smell of rotten beer but it could have been worse. He might have started collecting worse things than beer cans.
A) Used condoms.
B) Used tampons or feminine napkins.
C) Used toilet paper.
F) A giant Booger Ball.
G) Overflowing jars of urine.
H) Sticky Vials of Semen.
The list of items worse than used beer cans is endless when you really think of it. So the Silver Bullet is really a silver lining.

I might add that Angry Joyce should be happy. I didn't have half that many cans when she moved in.
