Dear Sirs,
Twenty-two ways to re-use an Altoids tin, on a rather amusing page: http://www.artofmanliness.com/2011/01/30/22-manly-ways-to-reuse-an-altoids-tin/
This is one of my favourites:
There is a definite Steampunk style here, with top hat and moustache. I cannot vouch for the philosophy called "The Art of Manliness"; I dare say it has some difficult definitions. If it were "The Art of Auntliness," ah, then I could judge.
Camellia
P.S. I do not recommend the Altoids Tin Bomb.

Take my camel, dear, said my aunt Camellia, climbing down from that animal on her return from high mass. The camel, a white Arabian Dhalur (single hump) from the famous herd of the Ruola tribe, had been a parting present, its saddle-bags stuffed with low-carat [sic] gold and flashy orient gems, from a rich desert tycoon. . . .

i think, yes, a pocket notebook and pencil in the lid, and a ivory penknife, some matches, some pipe-tobacco and a couple of coins of the realm.

I don't know why I have to learn algebra... I have no intention whatsoever of ever going there...

"Uh-uh. I know what you're thinking. Did he discharge 6 chambers, or was it only 5? Well, I rather forgot myself, what with all this excitement and all. But seeing that this is a .45 Civiliser, the most powerful hand-cannon in the Empire, and will blow your goggles clean off, you ought to ask yourself a question. Do I feel lucky?

"Well, do you... steampunk?"
