Tally Of Roadside Trash From Cleanup Day

What is it with drivers in rural areas throwing things out the window? Each year, I take part in an annual fall cleanup day near Hauser Lake, and each year I compete with one of the other participants to see who can find the most unusual item. Here are some of the items I found this year:

- Several baggies full of cigarette butts (why bother bagging them up if you're just going to throw them out the window?)

- Pressurized whipped cream bottles (I find at least a couple of these every year. Call me naive, but is this what kids are doing these days??)

- A porn DVD next to an empty box of 'Extenz' male enhancement supplements

- A debit card

- A giant jar filled with either pickle juice or urine, I'm not sure which

I won for that last item, by the way. What's the weirdest thing you've found beside the road?
