The Greatest Find of Them All

We’ve had some fun here before with cheap toys I’ve found at bargain/dollar stores. Fakie ponies with stolen My Little Pony box art, Barbie rip-offs that look like drunken floozies, questionable propositions from Engrish packaging.

But nothing prepared me for this.

Frans Tromers. Dark of the Moon.

Guys, seriously. FRANS TROMERS.

This is the single most glorious, not-a-#$@&-was-given-that-day, up-yours-trademark-holders, why-the-hell-not ripoffery I’ve witnessed since that pony with two generations of stolen Hasbro box art.

Frans wins the toy wars. He came home with me.

That’s right. I own a mint in box Frans Tromer. I’m that cool.

Loki, You Got Some ‘Splainin to Do!

I told Loki he could come to St. John’s with us this weekend- I was hoping for some epic (and adorable) photo ops.

And then I forgot to pack him.

It seems he was displeased.

One of Unique Engrish for Monday. Collect them All!

I’ve got a bigger Engrish post coming on Thursday (if my scheduling calculations are correct, and they aren’t always), but I thought this one deserved its own post.

“Let’s own your friends.”

I call shotgun on basing a story on this one.

Also, I’ve added a handy-dandy “Engrish” category over there on the right, in case anyone needs to refer back to these oh-so-important posts. You’re so welcome. 🙂


WTF, Walmart?!
