Make Shadow Puppets With Deaf-Mute People
While this may be fun, the inside section contains "facts about deaf-mutes" -- which warns you not to "let noise shorten your life." (I guess the National Deaf-Mute Sales Co. wouldn't exactly be sorry to learn of your hearing loss... but death would impact their sales.)
Here are startling new facts. The din in your life. Here is a list of the seven worst noise makers:But if you were hoping for a list of vintage New Years noisemakers, the list is far less kitsch-nostalgic:
1. Traffic.(Thank heavens we can now avoid such dangerous modern entertainment and make shadow pictures!)
2. Trains, planes.
3. Radios, television sets.
4. Whistles, bells.So don't let barking dogs shorten your life!
6. Loud voices.
7. Barking dogs.

Puppets & Puppet Masters
Will's got a special going on. He's clearing out the current listings in his eBay store (except the "Prints, Plates and Ephemera" catalog) so you can make him offers he can't refuse -- yes, even the pulps!
So I just made an offer on Puzzle For Puppets. I loves me puppets, and me puzzles. Keep your fingers crossed that Will likes my low-ball *wink*

I've Got A Squirrel Loose; Or, My Heaven Is Missing A Squirrel
In the commercial a red boy mouse finger puppet hits on a blue girl squirrel finger puppet:
Mouse: You know what I think?Ms Squirrel laughs, but you know she falls for it. Just as I have.
Mouse: Heaven must be missing a squirrel.
AT&T needs to sell me these finger puppets.
Are you listening, AT&T? I don't want an iPhone. Especially as I don't have service for it here. But even if I could, I'd still want those adorable finger puppets more.
I guess this whole post makes me AT&T's puppet, posting their ad like that... Unless they make me the puppets. Then I am The Puppet Master.
