Oddest thing found/seen lying in the road?

Here is a thread topic from a British web site that I go to.

What is the oddest thing that you have found on your commute/ride?

Oh man. Sprite almost came out of my nose. I was debating even writing that I find condoms all the time. :shudder: I guess people in this college town ride around throwing used condoms out. Gross.

I've also found sunglasses, hats, scarves... anything to fly off while in a convertible I assume. A bra once, even!

I have yet to see that. I think I would be grossed out.

I see diapers all the time. I hate seeing them.

I've found shoes, various articles of clothes (usually women's tops & bras), hose, the occasional socks, pants, panties, tools, money (no decent amount), broken cell phones. The best find(s) so far has been a functional digital camera and a functional digital recorder.

Found a guy laying in the trail a couple weeks ago. He had just crashed into the back of his buddy's bike and was just laying in the middle of the trail.

Some road rash on hands, arms and legs and I'm sure very sore the next day, but at least nothing broken.

My best find was The Best of ZZ Top on 8-track. Played it for years.
