Your Chicken!

Actually, your chickens, plural, since our each is multiples of lovely, plucked and naked chickens in full chicken color. And unlike the real thing, these are small enough to carry in your pocket, because you never know. In molded plastic, you pick the dozen micro-mini pullets at 1-1/2” long, or the 3-pack of 3” long birds. Either way, you’re prepared for any chicken emergency you’re likely to encounter.

Dyspeptic Putty

The magic putty with dyspepsia is back. OK, it's fart goop, but you still wouldn't want to go to middle school without it. You'll get about 2-1/4 oz (in a color we'll pick) inside a little round plastic container that's about 2-1/2" tall x 1-1/2" dia--a little bigger than an old film canister, or roughly the size of a shot glass. Put in a thumb; pull out a rude noise.
