Big Lots Canned Goods

Realizing that commentary on odd, expired food at 99 cents stores is a pursuit as old as 99 cents stores themselves, I was still powerless to resist snapping a photo during today's trip to Big Lots, where I went looking for rumored $4 gallons of paint. These cans don't look like they expired last week, they look like they expired two decades ago. At 60 cents, I wouldn't dream of eating those peas but the can sure would make a nice pencil cup.

It is easy to assemble a fictional narrative of how these products ended up on Big Lots' shelves but I bet it would be less interesting than the real story.
