Mr. Capote surely could have found inspiration here.

Arsenic Oreos

When I was 12, my family lived overseas. However, my folks sent me to school in the US. My parents knew that I loved a certain cookie, so they used to send a care package full of them. One day they showed up in a large can marked "Rat Poison". I loved it since none of my classmates would eat the cookies. I got them all to myself.

Heart Pine Floor

Those southern yellow pine floorboards! Could they be original to the house?

Mr. Delano took several photos of this house, including views of the exterior. This photo is a view looking across the dogtrot into the room with the fireplace. While the other photos in his series look a bit washed out, this photo is just so pleasing to the eye.

Perfectly safe!

Of course there's no problem at all with using a box previously full of AGRICULTURAL PESTICIDE for everyday household items.
