Obscurity of the Day: Do You Remember Your Kid Days?
The bottom sample may be confusing to today's audience, so I should explain that back in those days rag recycling was an actual occupation. Rag-pickers would gather up clothes and other materials that were beyond use and in turn sell them to companies that recycled them. Rags were used in paper-making (you've heard of rag paper?).
Thanks to Cole Johnson for the samples!
