Afro Ken Stuffed Toy








It is rumored that the person who "invented" the Pet Rock lost a lot of money on their next idea which was "Pet Sand." I hope you did not take your "Hello Kitty" money and invest in "Afro Ken," because he was the Edsel of the Japanese anime craze and exists only in the hearts and minds of the few and the weird.

Red Heel Sock Monkey







These are the instructions for making a red heel sock monkey. Please be careful when disseminating these instructions as they could be dangerous. Just stick "sock monkey" into any newspaper story regarding any current disaster and you can see what I mean.
