Default Whats the oddest thing you've had in the hat?

Tonight someone dropped a tampon into my hat. Its was still sealed up and in the packet (not used).
I 've had durgs in the hat and lots of christian messages before and once a live lobster.
Whats the oddest thing youv'e ever been dropped.

Just last week, in my hat was a book: "the epistle to the hebrews". So far it's OK, but tied to it was a branche with leaves and a red scarf that contended to following:
-2 cards, 8 of speads and 6 of heart
-a taro card, "ace of wands"
-a small statue of ??? probably the virgin mary
-a piece of leather string
-half a pack of matches
-some kind of gem, looking like pearls
-a pin spelling "c O d"
-a painting brush that was dipped into something ??
-SNAKE SKIN ?????

I'm in quebec, not snakes land!
Obviously some kind of magic, black or white ???
Anyone has an idea
Eric

A book on Hare Krishna, A Glow-In-The-Dark Rosary, Condoms and some Pot Pourri are among my top wierd drops.

Best i ever saw was a Dublin street band called The Public Health Service getting given a pinapple in the middle of the set and them freestyling a reggae song on the spot about it being such a great gift.

Last week I got a little toy turtle, i gave it to some kid.

Jester Elastic Band

Wyn Jones got an elastic band in his hat on Thursday.

Lots of jokes like "I wonder how far that will stretch." and "Better than a rubber check" from all the other performers.

Today I gave a giant marshmallow hamburger. It's about three months old now. Had to warn him to not eat it. ...and it was a stage show. No hat. I just really wanted to give it.

I recently got an amazing oragami octagonal box, I do not even know how many pieces of paper it used but it was quite a bit.

When it was given to me the creator said, if I do not like it I can throw it out, but before I do be sure to open it...and inside was a 20$....

Default Hat stuff

We keep a list of this in our program when we do indoor shows...

A watermelon (more beside the hat than in it)
Bag of weed
2 pound bag of beef jerky
3 Memberships to S&M club
Massages (the real deal, licensed therapist)

I'm sure there's more.

We're in Alaska right now, getting meals bought for us by lonely lumberjacks...

Lots of condoms, pot, speed, acid and one E.
Chocolate, christmas cake, beer, fruit. Still not strange.
Silver Bracelet - my favorite - gold watch in feb, movie tickets, friendship amulet last month and I'm sure there's more I can't remember but, the strangest has to be in 2001

- A Razor Scooter with the comment "Does your kid have one of these?"

Just had to official figure for my hat during the world record attempt. We raised over 3,300 in total but in the hat itself...

1275.36p

Not bad, and my Dad thinks I didn't hat enough and could have made a lot more...

Hmm maybe I will do it again..
