  1. Depends on whether or not it’s still “live” when it arrives. But then I think turtles are awesome.

    BTW my grandma used to have TONS of old comics from when my mom and her siblings were kids (the ’60s), mostly Scrooge McDucks and Archies, which I’d read when we visited. I always loved those weird ads for “x-ray” glasses and sea monkeys and fake poo and stuff that they offered for like 50 cents.

    I love the old adds too.

    What, you guys didn’t actually buy that stuff? And, what do you mean, ‘old’? Next, you’ll be telling me that the Palisades Amusement Park in New Jersey has been supplanted by something called ‘Disney World’! :D

    *Grins* Who needs to go so lofty as Disney? We have good old Six Flags Great Adventure here in New Jersey. Which is were I work, on the Overnight Crew Cleaning up the parking lot.

  5. I see “special moss-protected package” and my first thought is that they’re wrapped up like turtle sushi.
