Sean's Proof about Ruttabegas

I thought this package would never arrive.

That it was lost forever. But then, just moments after I emailed Sean to ask him, "Where the eff is my effing package?" he sent this explanation: 

Weird Rooster Thing

Sean's story about the Weird Rooster Thing:

I offer up to you for this painting a rare delight, a metal chicken with wooden leg nuggets and no wings to be found. A wonderful delight to see indeed. This chicken was given to me about three years ago from an art teacher friend of mine and I am getting ready to move and the chicken and I have decided to part ways. Because I am also moving I will include some rare other gems with this trade to be offered up. To discover this wonder and more you'll need to accept my offer and await the package!

Will Trades Me a French Phone, a Russian Book, Totem Pole Shaped Trophy & a Cross for Terror Clown Painting, No Face Wedding, Hugs for Jesus Statue and Dooky Kiss

Here's the thing.

Lots of people like to send "extras" to The Sauce along with their official trade offers. Lots of people. Pretty much everyone. I've let it go in the past, but - like I say below - I decided to make an example of Will and punish him for doing the same thing that many others have done in the past.

bARTer Sauce normally trades everything that comes through the inventory for something else.

I made an exception once and just gave something away. For charity. Don't judge me. I make the damn rules people. I make the rules.

My friend & ex-roomie Val is involved with SketchFest and they had a fundraiser. I had lots of drinks at said fundraiser.

Sean Trades Me Empire Man and Faceless Wedding Couple for Hairy Lady and PillowMan

Sean, in the bathroom

Sean has done so many trades with bARTer Sauce that I was on the verge of considering him a real friend even though we have never met in person.

He ruined it all by taking my "interview questions" very literally. Bastard.

Temple had a really different take on them. Now that's how you answer my "interview questions." Seriously. Sean is a bastard. Email him at theovenhelp (at) gmail.com. Tell him.

My "Interview Questions":

Two Empire Man Bobbleheads

Empire Today Carpet Man Bobblehead Doll

Sean's Story about the Empire Man Bobblehead:

About a year ago I worked for Empire Today. It was a normal office job, blah blah.

But then at the end of the year for our holiday bonus I was expecting a small gift or nicer yet a little bonus check. However, sadly ... instead I received this: an Empire Today Bobble Head desk buddy of the Empire Today mascot old guy with a mustache.

Wedding of the No-Face Couple

Sean's Story About Wedding of the No-Face Couple:

So I came upon this magic gem hidden in the photo studio of my school in a box of items going to the dumpster. So I snatched it in just the nick of time and saved it from damnation. I now offer it up in exchange for the hairy lady. This couple is an ongoing mystery to me and soon to you!

Who are they?

Why are they hiding?

Do they indeed have no faces?

Michael Frank from The Museum of Bad Art Trades me Space Aliens in Crayon for Old Man Murder

I hope Sean doesn't get mad at me for trading his painting to The Museum of Bad Art.

I'm assuming he won't since he wrote about how much he hates that painting. Plus, now he can say that his work is in a real museum.

You can read all about the MOBA visit on my blog.

Sean trades me "Old Man Murder" for "Fangy Tomato and Friend"

Old Man Murder

Sean lives far away, so we do all of our trades through the mail.

Now, it's really exciting for me to get a package in the mail, examine it momentarily then, rip it open in a rush to find the great art inside. And, as exciting as that is, that description probably won't remain exciting through the history of all Sean's trades. He's made a few:
