Funny story, my uncle collects mining artifacts. I got him this 300lb.+ chunk of coal for Christmas the one year to put in his basement by his collection. It's Christmas day and the whole family is at his house, we're all admiring this piece of coal drinking a few beers and his granddaughter who was about 5 at the time comes down the steps. Her eyes got as big as saucers and she asks who got that, Grampa says its his and she goes "Wow pop, you must have been reeeeeeally bad to get that." It's one of those situations where you had to be there because you had to see how serious she was about it.
