Recycled Pencil Sampler

Variety

Pencils are made out of all sorts of reclaimed materials: paper, tires, fabric, plastic - you name it. And why not? But to try each type is a lot of pencils. This would be a sampler with 3 recycled pencils of each type, bound with a recycled paper ribbon touting their specialness.

       Hmmm. Not unreasonable, and probably not even impossible.   

       However, I find myself slightly underwhelmed by the idea of packaging three recycled pencils together.   

       Perhaps it is because my soul is jaded.

       And you hate Mother Earth.   

       We could add a fourth pencil.

       Adding a fourth pencil would tip the balance for me.

       Whew! I thought you people would never settle this argument.   

       That fourth pencil did it for me. And the special ribbon. (I'm such a pushover.) Bun.

       You have all misread the idea. It says 3 of each type, not one of each of three types. 3 each of paper, tires, fabric, plastic and you name it (the last presumably some kind of unidentifiable toxic sludge) makes 15 pencils in the pack.   

       I would prefer one each of 3 (or 4) types.

       Ah, but then it would not be a sampler, would it?   

       I think a feasibility study is needed before we can really comment further on this scheme.

       By 'sampler' I thought [bungston] meant 2" stubs of each, not whole pencils. That would make it a sampler, would it not?
