Way-Out Wednesday: Wormed For Her Pleasure.

Welcome to a special, Thanksgiving eve edition of Way-Out Wednesday!


Is today's theme possibly turkey-related, you ask? Well duh, of course it is! Only, since it is Way-Out Wednesday after all, you know today's vintage pick has to be a little offbeat, kinda wacky and of course, well, borderline gross. Mmm, delicious. Now dig in!


"Oh, delightful", you're thinking. "A vintage can of...something or use in our country-fabulous decor. Look at how you just got all shabby chic on our asses. You pulled a ninja Rachel Ashwell maneuver on us. How thoughtful of you." But no, my pie-eating peeps. It's not just any vintage can of something or other. If you look closely at the label it says- and I quote- "For the expulsion of round worms and tapeworms in poultry." Yep. Pellets for deworming your turkey. (gag. blech.ohmygodGROSS.) Well there's something to give thanks for tomorrow. But no tapeworms means you'll just have to lose 50 pounds in 4 days some other way.

Vintage Can of Dr. Salsbury's Poultry Pellets is currently available on Etsy from seller Cottageprims.



  1. One year, as I was making pumpkin pies at my mom's house, I took a moment to really look at the cans of spices I was using. They didn't look like the fancy jars at the grocery store, but still appeared oddly familiar... where had I seen tins of ginger and allspice like this? Oh yes... the antique store!! I convinced mom to buy new spices (like real quick!) and I placed the "vintage" ones on the plate rack in her kitchen. How quaint. The Rota-Caps would have looked very nice next to them.
