Stupid Creatures

That is, if stupid means really effin great

So my friend Tom was all like, “These stupid creatures are great. You send in your socks to this dude and he makes a stuffed monster out of it. And it’s like cool.”

And I was thinking, yeah, whatever. Socks are good for two things: keeping your feet warm and monkeys.

But Tom, he wouldn’t stop yappin about these Stupid Creatures. So I went over to his house to pick up some stuff he stole from me, and I saw a box of them he had made (with new, but funky cool striped socks) for Christmas presents.

I was bowled over. The attention to detail on these things and craftsmanship is superb. They are weird and wonderful.

The best part is, this fella makes these out of his house and quit his day job. He even has an assistant. This is very much what I’d consider a dream job. (Not the part about the socks, the part about having a cool idea and running with it)

Now I just need a Stupid Idea.

Anyways, I’ve done my bit for viral marketing today.

Note: This entry is locked because Tom’s friends stalk me and they might be getting one of these neato things for Christmas.
