Can I Get My Security Deposit?

   There's really nothing I can say about this.  It pretty much explains itself. - News - Tenant Leaves Behind 70,000 Beer Cans

OGDEN, Utah -- When a Utah man moved out of his townhouse, his landlord found quite a collection -- an estimated 70,000 beer cans.

The landlord said the man had been living in the home for about eight years and never threw away a single can.

After a massive clean-up effort, the cans were recycled for about $800.

All of the cans were Coors Light. The man said he has quit drinking and now has a job.



  1. 70,000 cans of Coors Light? That's like the equivalent of a Canadian two-four, isn't it?
    P.S. Can you imagine the beer farts? Probably had to sterilize the place.

  2. It reminds me of college.  We made furniture out of our old returnable bottle cases.  I once took the "coffee table" in for the deposit money and bought a pack of smokes.  And, I think another roomate cashed in our Chez for a can of soup.  

    Canadian two-four.  hahaha..  I haven't heard that in ages.  Where I live, beer is sold in denominations of sixers, twelvers and cases.  


  3. I'm surprised Coors didn't want to make that into a commercial or some kind of monument! HA!

    I wonder what his liver is like?

    That is....

    8,750 cans a year

    729 a month

    24 cans a day

    1 an hour...if he didn't 2 an hour!


  4. That is my new retirement plan right there, cash in the cans at 60. 2 cans an hour for 365 days for 40 years . . . that's 700,800 cans - forget college and a job I'm getting drunk. :-D

  5. Geez .... in Utah, of all places.  I figured he would have had a tough time getting his hands on 70,000 cans of beer there.  Maybe that's why he kept them ! Tina

  6. No kidding, Tina! It ain't just the desert that's DRY here in Utah.
