Many of you were looking for strange and unusual things for your classrooms
and I mentioned the Archie McPhee catalog. Here is a post from them to

> BOO! A HAIKU BY YOU
> In honor of Halloween, we are having another creepy creative contest.
> Write a scary Haiku and win a big Japanese prize pack. A Haiku is a poem
> with 5 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second and 5 in the third.
> Try something like:
> Autumn Moonlight Walk
> Fast footsteps, soft behind you.
> Turn, it's Bea Arthur.
> For rules and entry information, look at our contest page.

> A REALLY LONG FORK
> This extendable metal fork has many uses. In its compact state, it is
> usable as a normal fork. If you extend it, the world is your oyster:
Taste
> food on other people's plates, serve yourself at doughnut shops or use it
> as an executive pointer to liven up a boring meeting. Eating has never
> been this long.

> DUDE, THIS IS THE BEST BOWL EVER

it's

> YOUR CHEST IS SO MANLY
> Look at your skinny hairless girly chest, what are you thinking? Hairless

one
> does anything. Until now! We present the chest wig in all its fuzzy
glory.
> This is also perfect for women who are looking for that special costume

> COUNTDOWN TO NOTHING
> Es el fin del mundo? (Is this the end of the word?) This is the question
> that the perpetual doomsday calendar asks as you look at it each day. Of
> course, if you can see the calendar then the answer is "no!" The colorful
> end of the world decoration looks good and the date is easy to read. A
> great addition to the office of your favorite optimist.

> PUMPKIN, WITH ATTITUDE
> What would happen if your jack-o-lantern came to life, grew arms and stole
> a mu-mu? This pumpkin punching puppet is our answer to that pressing
> query. Children will quiver and quake as the extendable arms grab at them
> in a vain attempt to steal all their candy. . . Or, perhaps, their souls!
