Are you old?



Be honest... who knows the answer? (Don't post it, for the benefit of younger readers who might not)

I'm probably old enough but I don't get it. A pen and a cassette tape... ummmm... Is the connection that no one uses either of those objects anymore?

Well, technically a pencil works better, but I'm 25, about to be 26 and know.


You old people should be ashamed.

I was kind of old when the two objects were used together, so yes, I am old.

Yes, a pencil does work better.

I also know what a licorice pizza is.

Those specific bic pens have a hexagonal cross section. They're just as good as a pencil.

Do you have to be old to know the connection between a cassette box and a razor blade?

You mean there are people who don't know??

But I refuse to admit I'm old just because I've used item B appropriately with item A... old is a state of mind!

I voted 'I don't know' to the title question but I actually do know the connection between the 2 objects in the picture.

I take it back, I don't know what the connection is. I was thinking one thing, then another occurred to me, but I wouldn't do that so I figure it's not that one. But the comments lead me to believe that a bunch of you old people would.

Spoiler. If you don't know and it's driving you nuts, here is your answer. But once you know, don't spoil the thread.

Bic pens worked best. I used to shop at Licorice Pizza.

I used to duplicate sermon tapes at church... you bet I know what those go together for. Man, that 7-well high-speed duplicator was a sight to behold.
