What is your favorite thing to do with a can?


UPDATE: Concerned about sharp edges? 
According to TLC.com http://tlc.howstuffworks.com/family/recycled-tin-can-crafts2.htm: "Wash the can thoroughly in hot, sudsy water, to get rid of traces of food. Since your hands will come into frequent contact with the pen holder, remove or cover all sharp edges. A sanding wheel attached to a power drill or rotor tool will smooth out rough spots. You can also finish the top edge by folding a piece of ribbon lengthwise over the rim. (You might also want to look for a side-cutting can opener, which doesn't leave a sharp edge.)"
