The name Slim Pickens comes from a poem a buddy of mine wrote when we were kids.


The poem said:

Slim Are the Pickens.
He was referring to blades of grass.

If you look at grass from a distance, they all look the same.
Under a microscope, not one is the same. I took that as people.

So, each can is a blade of grass from the poem.

That’s Where the name Slim Pickens comes from.
