Alton Brown would hate it

The mini-fridge in my hotel room has this clever-but-unnecessary plastic rack for storing those short 8-ounce cans of soda (or, as they say up here in Oregon, “pop”) commonly found in hospitals. But where would one acquire such a specialty item? Why, from the Target store just down the street, of course!

It’s really quite strange. I keep wondering if it’s actually supposed to be used for something else– like, I dunno, ostrich eggs– but the soda cans just fit too perfectly in the rack for it to have been designed for anything else. Maybe it’s a Pacific Northwest thing.
