“It had only one fault. It was kind of lousy” (James Thurber)


I couldn’t believe this when I found it; less for the strangled English, which is almost charming under the circumstances, than for the sheer headbanging weirdness of marketing stuffed parasite toys:

I’m sure that you will be as disappointed, and possibly as unsurprised, as I was to discover that the parasitepals website is now defunct. But I’m afraid that Parasite Pals are clearly as hard to kill off as toys as they are in real life. Over here you will find not only Dig Dig Head Louse, but also that dirty girl Holly’s other repellent friends: Blinky Eyelash Mite, Tickles Tapeworm and Zzeezz Bedbug.
