Richard's Poor Almanac by Richard Thompson for January 28, 2012
last catalog alert deconstructive playthings doll: stop pulling my string! oh grow up! deconstructive playthings. toys that bypass a child's sense of joy & wonder and go right for her sense of bitter cynicism that masks a basic insecurity & self-loathing. promotes early maturation! c.p. c.p. do you have a compulsive packrat on your christmas gift list? c.p. makes them even easier to buy for - empty cans, string, wrappers, old newspapers, knobs off things, etc. buy bulk & save! stickey's stickey's. for over 70 years stickey's has offered their world famous old fashioned family recipe stickey log; each one crammed with nuts, fruit, nougat and depleted uranium! comes in a variety of sizes & densities. elision elision. a collection of objects so exclusive they can't be actually pictured, but merely hinted at. 95 pages of unfocused photos and small type. if you have to ask what it is you can't afford it! sorry, no gift wrapping.
