Coinstar's list of unacceptable items seems to have been written by Tim Burton

Coinstar makes vending machines into which you drop coins and from which you get bills or gift cards. Its list of unacceptable items is quite odd, presumably intentionally.

unacceptable items

I’d think that this is based on things people have actually tried to shove into Coinstar slots, except I don’t see “fishing line with gum at its end” or “your dick”on the list.

(Tip o’ the hat to my brother Andy who definitely was not trying to “redeem” 70,000 #6 steel washers.)

  1. I wondered why the lawyers did not just say “Only put coins in here (except Eisenhower dollars)” and left it at that. The list just seems like a plan for experimenting. On the other hand, maybe the list was not written by lawyers and if it had been, it would have been better-nah, not likely. (Before the hating begins about my statement about lawyers, our father was a lawyer and “some of my best friends are lawyers”).
