Nik's Story that Came with the Kids With Guns Mug:
"I found this at Goodwill next to all the discarded wedding toast glasses, plastic A's cups, and granny shot glasses. I have no idea what the story is behind it but for 99cent - I rescued it. It's definitely someone's art project but the grim imagery raises a lot of questions. Even my most twisted friends don't want it. I'm sure it'll ruin people's feng shui. It'd make a great gag gift for creating uncomfortable silences."
Nik Caesar has been a long-time supporter of The Sauce. When I drop the ball, he reminds me. When I have no trade offers, he appears out of nowhere and offers me something fantastic. He is a wonderful human being (as far as I'm concerned).
This time Nik came through in the form of a coffee mug with images of kids holding guns around the outside. What? Yes. It's amazing.
I asked Nik to come up with captions for each of the images on the mug:
"We enforce the cookie law seriously here at bARTer Sauce"
"Kids don't play with guns, guns play with kids"
"Chuck E. Cheese now or Billy gets it!
Enjoy and stuff.
