What is your best use of M**a B***ks?

Everyone ends up with them. I got mine at a garage sale - I didn't look carefully as I snatched up a big bag of grey plates. However, they were perfect for making the slag heaps in front of the Gates of Mordor (79007 Battle at the Black Gate.)
"The gasping pools were choked with ash and crawling muds, sickly white and grey, as if the mountains had vomited the filth of their entrails upon the lands about."

    My only M*** B***** were a gift from a relative. I have since "lost" them.

    I let my friends kids play with the loose bricks so that they don't mess up my real ones. maybe when they're a bit older (if they still play with Lego then)

    I got a Halo set for a friend once. Washed my hands right away.

    My M*** B**** arrived at my house in the form of 25% of a 50lb lot of Lego I bought off Ebay. I'm starting to think some AFOLs make a living buying bulk lots of Lego, sorting it, then reselling the stuff they don't want on ebay by increasing the percentage of M*** B**** in the piece ratio. I'm just not buying the fact that so many people don't know the difference between "100% Lego" and "50% Lego and 50% knockoff brands". Because after recieving 25+ pounds of Lego (or "building blocks" as the case may be) that's traveled across North America, then spending tens of hours sorting, I really don't feel like packaging it all up and trying to return it for a refund.

    My M*** B**** got recycled, because sources tell me they're plastic... even though I've been tempted to watch them decompose, and I know that'll happen in my lifetime given their quality.

    This is not really worthy of Brickset, is it?
