Bountiful bon bon booty

Exciting times are these! Check out my bon bon haulage. As you can see, these were no skankarse bon bons: these were refined bon bons, from a reputable store with cardboard inserts for structural integrity. The hats, though pointy and slightly thirteenth century, were sparkly gold, and I can't be certain but I think they were scented?

And how about those prizes! All some kind of light-weight, space age, NASA developed metal/silver coated plastic. All fitting prizes and sizes... for Tinkerbell and her Oompaloompah consort sailing around on their teeny weeny sea-worthy plastic ship from my December 22nd bon bon.

When Tinks and her crew arrive we're gonna spend some quality time locking and unlocking the teeny lock, cutting weeny crescents in leftover Christmas paper with the teeny nail clippers, and opening weeny bottles of beer then drinking them from thimbles.

What a way to spend a year; only 364 days to go, peeps.

Is that a giant pen or small trinkets ;)

All I got was a plastic pen...

A giant pen would be a most excellent prize! We could fill our days signing giant novelty cheques and such like (giant affidavits, giant restraining orders, and etc).

Speaking of pens, congrats on yours, Miles! What a surprisingly useful, functional gift. Unless of course it's a giant foam pen?

Your crackers are superb. I'm very jealous. I just got a stupid plastic crocodile on wheels and then I stole a magic fortune fish from my dad

Hi squib, I was going to ask what a magic fortune fish was but then I saw the piccie on your site! Was the fish actually included, or do you just take the guide to a pet shop when you have an ethical question and apply it to the first fish you see? Now I'm getting all nostalgic for sea monkeys.

And how about those Aspley crackers. Insane-o. I'd love a box of 12... no wait, I'd have to sell an organ or a loved one for that. I say let's stick with Tinkerbell-sized stuff and plastic crocodiles on wheels.

And Whale, I think you've dodged a bullet there, and saved yourself a trip to the bin. I think we'd all be better off with those lolly-based bons bons anyways.

I dunno, my lady friend was ranting about all the cool stuff she cracked. Made me kind of jealous.

The fish was included. It's a flat piece of red plastic and I think the heat from your hand makes it move

I'm thinking with those Asprey ones, you'd want to hold on to your end of the cracker with a death grip
