Cheap Plastic Poodles
I remember having these as a kid. Carnival prizes, hard-earned, and for far more than a quarter each. Even back then.
The red one retains its plastic loop for hanging and is marked "Made in Hong Kong" on the side. The rest have no markings.

Piggy you rosin up your bow and play your fiddle hard
He was in a bind 'cos he was way behind: he was willin' to make a deal.
When he came across this old pig sawin' on a fiddle and playin' it hot.

Or maybe it's the scene were she is unhappy with her wedding present, the hat. Like I said, I haven't seen the film.

You Can't Dust M&Ms
At $2, it was a thrift shop steal.
But then, being 9.5 inches tall, and having a mouth diameter of 4.5 inches (much narrower than the base), it would cost, what, $45 to fill it with peanut butter M&M's?
Plus there's the additional cost of "a lifetime on the hips" -- because you cannot dust off M&M's, you have to eat them.
Proof That The 1950's Were Nutty
The seller says:
UNBELIEVABLY FABULOUS photo print of NUTS...shelled, and unshelled WALNUTS, and it looks like some shelled almonds are in there too, the 'photo' is black and white, which has been hand-colored in tan, sepia, green and gold with grey 'shadows'....LOVE IT!!!

1 Thanks, Cheetah Velour, for showing us damn funny books at the thrift shoppe.
2 We made the 100th edition of Make it from Scratch. Want to know what for? Well, go see it -- or must I do everything for you?
3 You really should go Jump with Joey.
4 Got tee shirts you want to sell, but they hold so many memories...? At re-shirt.net you list the shirts to sell -- but the stories live on forever.
5 I was going to post this KKK stunt here, but Deuce of Clubs has spared me all that typing.
