ALL WORK AND NO PRANKS

(click for super-giant enlargement)

Pictured above is an abundance of S.S. Adams prank and magic goodness that I recently received in the mail. It certainly looks like a lot of fun, but it actually means a lot of work for me because it's the makings of a new retailer catalog that I'm about to put together for Adams. Fortunately, thanks to my passion for pranks, the task won't feel as work-ish as it really is.

This is a photo that I wish I could show to the 10-year-old version of myself and say "Someday you'll get to mess around with all this fun stuff.. and get paid for it!" You may be wondering if I get to keep the samples when I'm done with the project. Well, I already have most of this stuff in my personal collection, but I have been known to include various merchandise as part of my fee. One of these days I'll share the story behind how I was blessed with the Adams gig, but right now I've got a catalog to make.

(Oh, and if you're ever in the market for S.S. Adams novelties I recommend F.L. Jerry's online shop for a wide selection of Adams products.)

Kirk,

It brings a smile to my face to envision you getting to put together this new catalog! Reading the Adams' history book (and your cool site) it is clear that you have a deep love and appreciation of buzzers, fake do-do, and the like. It's always a treat to hear of people working on projects that are just so perfect. Carry on and thanks for sharing.

Thanks James for the very nice comment. I am indeed blessed to be able do what I love.

Chuck, if I were to send these items to a state, I would most certainly choose a place like Utah or the Dakotas. They are the most prank-deprived spots in the nation.

k2nsf- thanks! I'll make sure to post the electronic version when I'm done.

anonymous- yes, the suckers just keep being born ;)

WL Blakeshaw- happy prank shopping! Frank (of F.L.) is definitely an Adamsphile who's in it 'for the love' so I'm always happy to send business his way.
