What the duck?
This quacks me up.
No, really! ;-)
this is quacktastic. ive been waiting a long time for a product like this to come along.
Do any of you old-timers remember a page from u&lc from perhaps the mid-70s that showed an entire alphabet made from identical pretzels bitten off in particular ways?
As I recall the story, an art director was watching the telly with his family, bit off a couple of pretzels and remarked on how well they seemed to work as letters. After that the whole family pitched in on the project. The alphabet was even accompanied with a full complement of numerals and punctuation. (no old style figs, though!)
I have a copy slide of that page because I used to include in my lectures for a bit of levity. If I can hunt it up I'll post it.
I remember that: these days, it would go for a fortune on eBay.... ;-)
