my mother could be the mafia

So I was looking for nail clippers the other and I asked my mom...

Me: Mother, where are the nail clippers in this house?
Mom: I have them here. (picks up a ziplock bag full of shiny metal objects and hands it to me). Take your pick.





Is this trippy or what!?!

They look like torture devices. I'm betting she had these since... the 80s probably. I just had to take pictures.

Man, this family is weird....

Hahaha! She keeps EVERYTHING! We have around 3 VHS players in this house, old wooden speakers, diskettes (as in FLOPPY DISKS). what. hahahaha! like a time machine in here.

What kind of torture devices do you have in your home?

i have just as many nail clippers. i have 2 for my nails (an extra in case the other gets lost) and 1 made to cut toe nails. they are strange-looking devices, aren't they? :)
