When I first spotted the below in my front yard, I thought it was the typical drinking straw. However, as I approached the object and got a closer look, it revealed itself as the empty housing of a Papermate writing instrument. This junk was found in an area of my yard that is very light in litter. In fact, of all the trash pictured and written below, this is only the second piece to land in this small area of the yard. Notice the end (top of picture); chewed to hell.
