Yes, you remember right: that’s the name of a Bob Dylan song. It won an Oscar, if I’m not mistaken, having been used in a Michael Douglas movie and whatnot. Anyway, things HAVE changed since the days when your change was given to you on a mat that a) made it easy to pick it up and b) advertised a lethal product, i.e. Export cigarettes. What a concept! (Not that Export cigarettes – did they ever have those in the States, American friends? – were any worse than any other brand, I suppose.) Those change mats used to be in every general store, every gas station, everywhere. So when I saw this one recently at an antique store in Madoc, I could not resist; what a blast from the past! But yes, things have changed: now not only would you never see this change mat in any store anywhere (in Canada at least), you also wouldn’t be able to even see the product it’s advertising (cigarettes); they’re behind closed doors now. Which I suppose is for the best, though it does reek of Big Brother knowing what is best. Anyway, nothing better for picking up your change than this Export Cigarettes mat, and I just happen to have one!
