Adventures In Dump Table Diving

A few days ago, I was wandering around a local drugstore, stocking up on gatorade and shampoo, when I noticed a couple of newly filled dump tables in the aisle.  For those not in the retail know, a dump table is the technical name for those things you find bargains on... y'know, like "wow, I can get a DVD for $2.00!"  Usually they're crap, but every now and again you'll find something excellent.  Like the time I found the director's cut DVD of Blade Runner for $5.99, or 10 scissors (of varying sizes) for $5.00.  This time, the table was full of... well, stuff, none of which I needed.  Except down at the very bottom, there were some forehead-mounted LED flashlights (two for $4.99)... and these:

Six single-LED cliplights.  All of them for $5.00.  FIVE FRICKIN' DOLLARS!  Each one uses three watch-batteries; to replace those would cost more than five bucks!  These lights will revolutionize my duckphoto stage set!

I love finding crap stuff like this.

...stopped reading there. This already sounds pretty sketchy.

2 Curses.  You found the exact deal I've been trying to find for my figures.  I can't find any useful stand-alone mini-LEDs locally.

4 That's an awesome deal.

I lived my whole life without seeing any rubber ducks outside of Ernie's tub and other pop culture references. Now they're everywhere.Are you sure you're not taking over the world? I mean, they've even got Garanimal rubber ducks in the baby section of Walmart....

I don't know what you're talking about.  (tuneless whistle, shifty eyes)

6 The ever-thoughtful darlin' asked me to link you with this. Apparently it wouldn't cost more for the batteries!

7 What a great find! It looks like the duck is on Broadway
