Janet and I have gotten on the subject of crayons here on a few occasions. One of her memories was getting a new box of 64 Crayola crayons (with sharpener!) every Christmas when she was younger. Anyway, I was flipping through some old comments to see what inspiration they provided, ran across her comment, and asked myself, “hey, I wonder if they make any boxes bigger than 64?” So, I went to the world’s favorite online department store and discovered that yes, in fact they now make a box with 152 crayons. Actually, a caddy, with a built-in sharpener! You can see it in action here.
Naturally, I went to the product reviews, and found one of the best lines ever in a review by “Leland”:
One-Liner Wednesday is brought to you each week by Linda Hill and this station. During January, it’s part of Just Jot It January.
Now a word from (naturally) Crayola crayons.
