Butt Cheeks Salt and Pepper Shakers

Butt Cheeks Salt and Pepper Shakers
Butt Cheeks Salt and Pepper Shakers, gift of Angela Botzer, August 2012

What’s thong with this picture? This set of salt and pepper shakers with the removable butt cheeks is a souvenir of Rehoboth Beach. Maybe it’s supposed to remind you of the sandy beach where you spent your vacation. It might also remind you of all the inconvenient places on your body where you might find some of that sand. Why anyone would want to remember that, I don’t know.

The cheeks don’t say which is the salt and which is the pepper, so before you ask, the salt goes into whatever shaker has more holes. Thanks to Angela Botzer for going to Ellicott City and snagging these for me.

These are tacky, but a bit more tasteful than the last set of salt and pepper shakers that I posted here.  Maybe it’s the kitschy faces painted on each cheek.

Only a day after posting the butt cheek salt and pepper shakers to this blog, Bob and I decided to go to Ellicott City in search of more tacky treasures.  We must have gone to the same store that Angela did, because when we brought these to the cash register, here’s what happened:

Cashier:  Hey, we had a set of butt cheek salt and pepper shakers a while back, but we sold them.  They were souvenirs from Rehoboth Beach.
Me:  I know!  I have them!
Cashier:  [puzzled look, then laughter]

Bob deserves credit for this find.  He’s got a good eye for tacky treasures.
