Thread Name: BS: Smarties to drop the tube!!
Subject: RE: BS: Smarties to drop the tube!!
when i was but a young lad, my friends and i made, "the worlds biggest smartie tube" for a local child group project ( i was 10)
we collected over a period, 50 perfect, undented, (but emptied!) tubes, and with "the help of a responsible adult" removed caps and ends, add a few squeezes of superglue, and pop a cap on the top. Ta da!!
However, the story saddens. with great care we took it to the community centre, and laid it on the ground, and ran in to get the club leaders, leaving it unattended, thus returned to see it cartwheeling down the main street, in a gust of wind, and left battered, crushed and separated. The top was still on though. I cried.

ah memories. all this re packaging crap serves one purpose only. to make us feel bloody old
So Nestle, i say to you, on behalf of us all TTHHRUUPPPPT 2U
