Look at what I found on Etsy today…”A Vintage Enamel Kidney Bean Shaped Hospital Basin -or Repurposed as a Banana Split Bowl”. You actually have a choice as to what to do with this! Spit or Split…it’s all up to you.
It retails for $21.99 and here’s what the seller had to say about it…
White enamel pan with black trim. It is in good shape with some nicks in the enamel. I believe this is a spit basin but I would use it as a serving container for Banana Splits. The younger generation wouldn’t know it was a spit catcher – but imagine serving a Banana Split in this to your Grandpa! 🙂
Yeah, that’s a great idea. Give Grandpa a stroke when you serve him his nightly ice cream in what he knows to be a “spit catcher”. Woooo won’t that be a riot? Also you can serve ice cream to the “younger generation” and they’ll have no idea what the hell they are eating out of, while you smile and watch them enjoy their dessert. The joke’s on them, right? I’m sure everyone will find it down right knee-slapping hysterical when you let them in on your little secret when they’re done. Don’t forget to mention that you served them up a nice side of lead poisoning thanks to the “nicks” in the enamel. Who knew dessert time could be so much fun?
A Vintage Enamel Kidney Bean Shaped Hospital Basin (AKA Spit Catcher) – or Repurposed as a Banana Split Bowl…That’s Shitsy!
