A Carton of Hate & A Wedge of Spite

I have to confess that I have eased off the throttle of the collecting train in recent years, but at times there are toys that demand to be purchased and enjoyed.

Case in point, these wonderful replicas of
Evan Dorkin's mayhem loving dairy products, Milk and Cheese.

They are the perfect additions to my custom M&C color illustration where they burn down my beloved Mayberry and urinate on the grave of Otis Campbell. One of these days, I'll get a good color scan of said scene (obtained in a Fisher-Price Ferris Wheel toy-trade with Evan years ago) and slap it up for all to enjoy, but for now use your imagination.

As far as I know, I actually have all of the M&C merchandise (what little there is), such as the figural magnet, the magnet set and the trading cards.

As for the Milk and Cheese Vinyl Figures set, see the photo below. These retail for $69.99 off the
Slave Labor website, but can be found for $20.00 less on eBay (which is where I got mine).

Morning Haiku

Friday Morning, February 15

Bitter cold morning
The dawn sky is pink coral
Frost adorns the world
