I found these at Goodwill today and several things attracted me to them. One was the title, Foodfighters. I didn't get the significance of that until I took a close look and saw each figure has a two-inch spear coming off the bottom of his foot. With these, it's possible to stick them in your food and create a battle scene out of your dinner. "Incoming! Take cover behind the pot roast!"
What really made my day, however, were the blurbs on the header card: NOT A TOY. FOR USE BY ADULTS ONLY. FUNCTIONAL SHARP POINT.
You can also use them as picks, stabbing them into canapes, cheese puffs, or what-have-you during your next party.
A must item for the hostess with the mostess.

Happy day to all you mothers out there and especially mine. Here she is about 50 years ago. The store where she worked had a fashion show and she was asked to be one of the models. I don't think she ever wore her hair that way at any other time. She's 91 now and still maintains her own apartment. Quite a woman, my mother.
Don't forget to check out my previous blog about the Kickstarter project.
My old pal Jim Vadeboncoeur, Jr. has been publishing a gorgeous art magazine called ImageS for years. He showcases the best in illustration during its Golden Age, work that graced books, posters, magazines, etc. It's a high quality project from cover to cover and fans of this work should check it out right away.
Here's the Kickstarter part: In order to publish the final issue he needs some financial aid. As I understand it, those who donate using Kickstarter don't lose a cent when the project doesn't come to fruition and can get their money back when it does. I chose to donate outright and let him keep the money, but Jim's done so many good turns for me over the years I'd be a cad to do anything else. But that's me; you make up your own mind. I know he's not asking for charity, just a little help. To sign up just click on the e-dress below. Or drag and paste if it doesn't work that way. You'll be glad you did.
