For All You Who Don’t Have a Pot to…

Just found something that all you relic hunters might be interested in (and especially the gals). I may be wrong about this but I will let you all decide.  Unfortunately the “camo” model seems to be sold out (sorry Diva). My only regret is that I didn’t come up with idea.  Damn!  Click on this link and tell me what you think?  Great video as well!


Diva, since this is a British company maybe we could persuade Mr. Winter or Mr. Howland to be the middleman and we could distribute here in the States?  Think of it… “Dick & Diva’s Shit Boxes, Inc.“.  Nice ring to it don’t ya think?


THE DICK & DAN SHOW…coming soon

Well, for all you TV detecting show critics I may have come up with “the” show and I think you will like it.  Now this idea started out with a casual response to something Dan Hughes posted on Facebook but somehow the conversation continued and wound up being asinine (and stupid too), and later I asked Dan to delete it.  Before I asked however I copied and saved it.

Anyway you all remember “Abbott & Costello”?  Well this is “Dick &Dan”….It starts with Dan’s comment:


I get lots of porn spam (Adriana is a persnickety little thing), but today I got one with this provocative headline: HAS ANYONE EVER SEEN YOU NAKED BY ACCIDENT?  I’m trying to think of a scenario where that might happen, but I’m not having much luck.

Dick Stout: If you find anything please don’t share it…

Dan Hughes: Same to you, Dick!

Dick Stout: Don’t think a naked photo of either of us would get much notice…just a guess.

Dan Hughes: Yeah, don’t know if there’s a market for naked photos of old treasure writers. Maybe if we were using detectors….

Dan Hughes: Wonder if Western & Eastern Treasures would put a shot of the two of us on the cover?

Dick Stout: Probably not but suspect it would be big selling issue…

Dan Hughes: “Is your magazine’s circulation anemic? Subscriptions down? Newsstand purchases dropping? Let Dick and Dan save the day!”

Dick Stout: You know we could have the control boxes in strategic places….?

Dan Hughes: Dick, I think maybe we’re getting a little too much into this….

Dick Stout: Yeah, you are probably right…sorry.

Dan Hughes: Remember the White’s control boxes from the 1960s? They were so big nobody would know we were naked.

Dick Stout: I could probably get away with using a “Troy” today….

Dan Hughes: No WAY I can top that one, Dick! I quit!

Dick Stout: Me too….can you delete this.


For those of you not familiar with Dan Hughes please peruse his website, and if you don’t have his  Metal Detecting Manual consider getting it.  It’s extremely well done.

John Howland just sent me his latest update to the Malamute Saloon and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.  Hope you will too. The three topics he discusses are examples of where the archaeological community needs to stand down, though I suspect that’s not possible. To read Bubba’s latest click on the Malamute Saloon link above and scroll down to today’s date.



You are welcome to take extracts from or link to my website/blog.   All I ask is that you have the courtesy to give me an acknowledgement….thanks!


Thanks to my good friend Bob Kerr for the following….

Inscribed on Russell J. Larsen’s headstone in Logan, Utah

Five rules for men to follow for a happy life

  1. It’s important to have a woman who helps at home, cooks from time to time, cleans up, and has a job.
  2. It’s important to have a woman who can make you laugh.
  3. It’s important to have a woman who you can trust, and doesn’t lie to you.
  4. It’s important to have a woman who is good in bed, and likes to be with you.
  5. It’s very, very important that these four women do not know each other, or you could end up dead like me.

(Mr. Larsen died not knowing that he would win the “Coolest Headstone” contest)

  1. We were once sent an item for review consideration that was, well, lets just say a device for those too busy to stop long metal detecting long enough for details such as having to unzip or remove one’s trousers before answering natures call.. We passed (no pun intended).

    Shit boxes.
    Has there been a run on them?
    They are they all sold out!

  3. Robbie

    Imagine selling boxes to crap in….someones making a shitload of profit on those………………. ;oP

  4. Love this post. I was laughing at out loud at work when a coworker asked what I was laughing about I simply said a great invention. I read an article a few years back about a corrugated couch. I hear it molds nicely!

    • Not to late to get in on the distributorship? Diva and I are working on it.,,,,,

      • Dick, I am struggling to keep up as is! Have you ever thought about relocating to beautiful KS? The WheatState Treasure hunters could use a guy like you!

      • Steve I dream of relocating every day, but not sure Kansas is that much different than Texas. Living here is not my cup of tea but that’s a long story.

      • No special overtime rates….just ‘Time and a Turd’.

      • Somehow Howland your comments wind up in the strangest places? Not sure what this has to do with my living in Texas and Steve’s request to move to Kansas?

        Anyway I felt certain you would come up with some wise ass remark about the Facebook back and forth between Hughes and I, but apparently you are more enthralled with “crap”.

  5. Dick & Diva’s shit boxes, available for distribution only in Poland–bet we would be millionaires in short order.

    • Would have to hire more people and work overtime if we did that….

      • You know I think about this topic and how much fun we are having with it. Then I think about Wally and Harry and how “negative” their blogs are. I wonder if they ever smile, laugh or even giggle once a while….? Somehow I doubt it.

    This is certainly a “shitty subject”, love the name though, The Brown Corporation.. a solid company.

    I could improve on this product by attaching a toilet roll holder to either side depending on whether or not your right handed or left handed, and another little pocket (cardboard) for the hand sanitizer

    Keep em coming Dick!!!!!!!!!!!.

  7. Robbie

    Wally and Harry must really need those boxes…maybe if they had one, they wouldn’t feel so constipated about metal detectors and us tekkie’s. ;oP

  8. I bet the little brown box would help with their internal pressures!

  9. Joe Smith

    If there is a shortage, maybe these guys in Canada can help.

  10. Hahaha…, Joe you area piece of work…thanks.

  11. Big Tony from Bayonne

    Well I remember a saying – Do bears sh@t in the woods?
    Then who needs a cardboard box? Hand me a few butt wipes please!
