Do you remember this episode of "The Simpsons"? Homer stole the sugar from a hijacked sugar truck, packaged it himself, and then tried to sell it (for the low, low price of $1 per pound).

Marge: But the grocery store sells sugar for 35 cents a pound!
Lisa: And it doesn't have nails and broken glass in it.
Homer: Those are prizes. (Homer eats some of his food and pulls a black object out of his mouth) Ooh, a blasting cap.

Well, I just put some pinto beans in a pot to boil so we can have refried beans as part of dinner. Experience has taught me to sift through beans, nuts, and even bulk candy before eating them so we don't get any unwelcome "prizes." It's a good thing, too, because this time I found a twig and a small rock mixed in with the beans.

That would have been a very unpleasant surprise.
