The vehicle was modified by Theresa Contreras and her team at San Dimas, CA-based L&G Enterprises. The interior features a library containing all sorts of sensational reading materials provided by Fantagraphics Books and Last Gasp. The rear doors open to reveal an honest to goodness Cabinet of Curiosities. Archie McPhee was delighted to contribute a treasure trove of oddities and curiosities for this awesome feature.
The Happy Mutant Mobile is an awesome mobile library, wunderkammer and blogging/video studio perfect for on-the-road interviews. Bon voyage friends!
Joe J Thomas, voice actor and creator of the blog Joe’s Dump, recently proposed an awesome new system of measurement, The Rubber Chicken Standard. What with the Metric System failing to take off in the US and his opinion that the Imperial System isn’t very intuitive, Joe argues that it’s high time we all agreed on a new standard of measurement:
I’ve chosen the Archie McPhee Deluxe Rubber Chicken as a new standard of measurement. The reason is simple: every culture knows what a chicken is, and a rubber chicken is easier to use because it won’t spoil.
One rubber chicken is the basic unit of measurement. (How many chickens tall are you?) But Joe goes on to propose the use of a “Kilo-Chicken” (kc) for measuring really large objects (It’s the size of 1,000 Rubber Chickens):
And the “Micro-Chicken” (uc) for measuring really tiny things:
Tin cans are for average cats, this one is silvery. While it’s true that your cat would eat out of a tin can if it had to, surely it would prefer to dine from a silver-plated ceramic Luxury Cat Dish. The 5″ diameter bowl is the perfect food container whether you’re serving caviar, seafood-flavored kibble or wet food. It holds 10 fl. oz., which is a lot of caviar!
Speaking of caviar, the Luxury Cat Dish is also food safe for humans, so feel free to use it for cereal in the morning or get down on all fours and chow down besides your kitties. They may appreciate this so much that they’ll even acknowledge that you exist. (Sorry, no guarantees there.)
It’s just like your parents always told you—you are special. But, if that’s true, where are your paparazzi and clingy fans? It’s time for you to take command of your destiny. This set of five hard vinyl You’re The Star figures is the adoring public you so richly deserve.
This flock of tiny, adoring photographers and autograph seekers will watch you brush your teeth in the morning, wait for you to get home from work and then hang around outside of any event you go to. In fact, occasionally you’ll want to yell at them, but don’t do it. You don’t want to be featured on TMZ.
There’s nothing worse than having people look at you in your Horse Mask and saying, “I can tell you’re a human because I can see your hands, you loser.” Now it’ll never happen again thanks to this handsome pair of 14″ long latex Horse Hooves:
Horse hooves fit smoothly over most adult hands. Like a pair of cloppy gloves, they instantly add a dash of centaur to any outfit. We recommend wearing them to math class and using them to stomp out your answers or to make shaking hands extra cloppy. Also good for dressing as your favorite rapper, 50 Centaur.
