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.
