Let’s Fang Out! A Halloween Contest From Billy Wack!
We’re so focused on the new and the now and the plastic fantastic, we’re missing some great stuff. For instance: Los Angeles-based Billy Wack released his own handmade update to that sweet 1960s quirky toy series, Popsies. Like Psycho Ceramics, except made of wood, Popsies originated in Japan, came in the form of ugly-cute characters and featured a pun and/or platitude as a message. Today’s Popsies from “Punk-preneur,” Billy Wack are no different.
Mr. Wack was kind enough to send me a few Popsies to check out. They’re all numbered limited editions, made in Los Angeles. There’s a nice, satisfying feeling holding them in your hand and popping out their messages. You can currently pick up a Halloween Popsie Frankenstein or Wack’s Bats for $29.95 each (or $50 a pair) here. And I think you should. You would be happy. Also, check out Billy Wack’s Facebook.
Alternatively, you can leave me a little message here in the Comments section of this blog post. Something funny. A joke, perhaps. Because I’ll give away one black bat and one pink bat to the two top comments that make me laugh. You don’t have to RT this on Twitter or Like me on Facebook. You just have to give a guy a smile. This contest is open until the job is done. You can enter as many times as you like. If you’ve been following me for a while, I last did this on ToyCyte in 2008, and Kyle Nelson won a Pooty skunk toy autographed by Touma for an extremely lowbrow joke involving a farting nun. So, anything goes.
Good luck. Have fun. Be safe. Happy Halloween!
What do you call a cross between a penguin and a cow?
A farting nun!
A rabbi, a horse and a translator walk into a bar.
The rabbi orders a scotch, the translator orders a milkshake, and the horse just looks at the bartender.
“What can I get you?” asks the bartender.
The horse points at the translator. “I’ll have what she’s having.”
So you really do like fart jokes?! I was just being funny when I retweeted this & said you liked fart jokes. Humor fail… or win?
How does Moses make his tea? Hebrews it.
I am currently working and my joke is a dissection of my current life: I have an unruly 3 year old boy and work two jobs and my wife works one hectic corporate IT job and we are having another baby boy next wednesday (cue Price is Right loser sound)…wah wah wah…the joke is on us.
To piggyback my true farting nun story, another true story: The record store I work at is in a precarious area of a downtown metropolitan city. A guy and his dog are in the store shopping, nice dog and terribly annoying guy which is somehow usually the case. So a local pseudo-bum guy who buys Jackson Browne-esque cps comes in and the mellow dog just buries his nose in the guys crotch. The guy who is like a cross between an old frazzled Grizzly Adams and Captain Kangaroo says” Whoa…he must smell the mustard!” Unaware of how to respond, I asked him if he had mustard in his pants. He says “No, but i did have a hot dog today.” And no I don’t have a youtube clip, but i wish i did.
Toy Flippers… Those guys are a joke
..HAHA! am I right?
Why don’t skeletons like parties?
They have no body to dance with.
Pop quiz! Spot the poor logic in what this man says:
Man: “I think that stripper loves me…”
Answer: A corpse can’t love.
A string goes into a bar and the bartender tells him, “hey, we don’t serve your kind here, this is a snake bar” so he leaves. He goes out and puts on some glasses and goes back in and orders a beer. The bartender tells him, ” hey I recognize you, your that string aren’t you, I told you we don’t serve your kind here”. So he leaves again, this time he goes outside and messes up his hair and wiggles around and comes back inside and the bartender says , ” hey, aren’t you that string again?”… And he says…..” nope I’m a frayed knot”
A blind guy on a bar stool shouts to the bartender, “Wanna hear a blonde joke?”
In a hushed voice, the guy next to him says, “Before you tell that joke, you should know something. Our bartender is blonde and the bouncer is blonde. I’m a 6′ tall blonde, 200 lb black belt. The guy sitting next to me is a blonde, 6′ 2, weighs 225 and he’s a rugby player. The fella to your right is 6′ 5″ pushing 300 and he’s a wrestler. Each one of US is blonde. Think about it, Mister. You still wanna tell that joke?”
The blind guy says, “Nah, not if I’m gonna have to explain it five times.”
David had been suffering from premature ejaculation for years and his wife coaxed him to finally go to a hospital for treatment. David got admitted and underwent an operation.
His wife rang up the hospital to find out if the operation was a success, and the doctor informed her, “I’m sorry but it’s still touch and go!”
This old man, he played none,
He had no income for toy fun.
For a knick-knack, by Billy Wack,
Throw the blog a bone…
And this bat toy came rolling home!
I used to wake up regularly with popsicle stick/Laffy Taffy level comedy in my head first thing in the morning. They’d just appear like stale magic, so I’d text the jokes and riddles out to my girlfriend. She was going through her old phone last night and found one that I had completely forgotten about.
