Happy Purim Hangers

Fun time tonight!
Thanks to all who chanted megillah, and made the night festive.
You might be wondering why we included a hanger in the Mishloach Manot; maybe a gag about Haman's fate?
Actually it's following our custom of including a sustainability tool.  Other years we've included cfl's (back when they were new and weird), bowl covers, even coffee mugs.
I found hangers like this one in Europe once and brought a few home.  They are the sturdiest I've ever used for hanging laundry to air dry - for sure a way to save energy.  These are heavy enough to hang up a heavy wet towel to dry, for example.
One day this winter I decided to treat myself to a dozen of them.  Life is short.  Buy great hangers.  But I couldn't find them anywhere.  A google image search finally turned some up. In quantities of 100.  All reused.  (even greener!).  And only available in - you guessed it - Philadelphia, PA.  So enjoy your hanger!
