pencil connections

Some things intuitively go together. Salt & pepper. Bacon & eggs. And in time for Santa's visit soon: milk & cookies. Some, like perhaps  a pencil, don't have intuitive partners.  

But a few decades ago, we could intuitively tell why a pencil would be paired with a cassette tape -- or a VHS tape. Or even the connection between a rotary phone & a pencil (albeit, an eraser-less one) to protect one's manicure.

Do you remember these pencil connections?
