About Broccoli Wad
Rumor has it that the original "Wise Guys" never used wallets, but instead wrapped their cash in a rubber band that came from a store-bought stalk of broccoli. These old stories prompted the creation of the Broccoli Wad. It is stronger than an ordinary rubber band, because it is made from silicone. The band expands to wrap around the contents of anyone's wallet, even if you are carrying a lot of cards and cash. A silver- or gold-tone security band helps keep everything secure. One of the best methods for using one of these bands is to keep any cards in the center, then wrap cash around the cards, and then secure the entire wad with the silicone band. Once you have done this, you can keep your wad safely in your front pocket, which is a much better place than a back pocket to protect it from thieves. It even fits easily into the breast pocket of a suit coat or blazer. If you are ready to ditch your old-fashioned wallet, you can find a Broccoli Wad within the vast inventory on eBay.
