Beat Bobblehead

Whither goest thou, America, in thy shiny car in the night? — Jack Kerouac

Tell me you don't want a Jack Kerouac Bobblehead.

The Lowell Spinners ball club is giving them away to the first 1000 fans through the gates on August 21 (Kerouac was from Lowell). I might be tempted to get up there if they were playing the Batavia Muckdogs that night. But I guess I'll wait till they show up on ebay.

To compare the original with the bobblehead:

Welcome to the 21st Century, Kids!

Signs of the zeitgeist: the Playmobil HazMat Team.

Priceless description on the website:

Oh, no! Hazardous waste has seeped out of a barrel and onto the village sidewalk! No need to worry, the Hazmat Crew has arrived. The street is secured with a road warning sign and the Crew begins clean up with their powerful vacuums. Dressed in protective uniforms and armed with hazardous material equipment this sidewalk will be free of this hazardous substance in no time.

Notice: This set doesn't come with actual hazardous waste! Kids will have to supply their own.

Saw this on Brian Floca's desk. Thanks, Brian.

P.S. Check out the arms trader. Another warm and fuzzy feature of modern life.
