Introducing the Titanic Gravy Boat

There’s a stack of mashed potatoes off the port bow. Hard to starboard!

Since every holiday dinner is a disaster, you might as well use the Titanic Gravy Boat. The gravy pours through a hole in the hull!

The Titanic Gravy Boat brings one of the most famous maritime tragedies of all time to your dinner table. This ceramic representation of the Titanic is 9″ x 4-3/4″ and holds 16 fl. oz. of gravy which can be poured through the hole in the hull.

Also, it can be used to stage a historical reenactment if your relatives start talking politics. As soon as someone starts quoting radio show hosts, you just use mashed potatoes as the iceberg and peas as the life boats.

Archie McPhee snowflake by Kit Cameo

We love Kit Cameo‘s themed snowflakes so much we commissioned her to do an Archie McPhee snowflake:

As you can see, it’s utterly amazing. She worked in the Horse Mask, the Unicorn Mask, the Inflatable Unicorn Horn for Cats and Groucho Glasses.

In case you haven’t seen them before, here are her wonderful Cthulhu and Pirate snowflakes:

You can even pick a theme yourself and have her make one for you!

Thanks, Kit!

Inspiration à la Archie McPhee

We’ve been working on a series of Archie McPhee Inspiration Posters combining wise quotes with photos of people wearing our animal head masks.

And remember, if you have a photo of yourself or someone else wearing the Pigeon Mask, you can share it on our Pigeon Mask Blog by e-mailing the photo to [email protected].

Caution: horses and unicorns at work

Here at Archie McPhee headquarters we’re currently having the floors redone with cork. It’s a pretty exciting development for the people who walk on those floors all the time, but the new flooring isn’t actually the best part of this project.

What’s really awesome is that members of the Floor Coverings International crew working on this job have been spotted wearing Horse Head Masks and Magical Unicorn Masks:

Here’s an industry secret: After a Unicorn has been through a room with a vacuum, each step you take on that floor releases the sweet scent of cotton candy!

This is a skilled and safety-conscious bunch of guys, so we aren’t going to claim that they’ve been wearing the masks the whole time, but they also clearly know how to win our hearts and make themselves stand out from the competition.

Dear Leader Mints

Dear Leader Mints – One of Kim Jong Il’s most famous quotes is, “One can live without candy, but one cannot live without bullets.” So, we thought to ourselves, why not mix the insanity of North Korean propaganda, bullets and candy together in one big jumble of crazy. This is what we ended up with. You can buy them here.
