Wired Magazine visits Archie McPhee

Shana High Priestess of Rubber Chickens Archie McPhee
The wonderful folks at Wired dropped by the Archie McPhee store in Seattle for a visit. Not only did they write amazing things about it, they took some absolutely gorgeous pictures. 
Before the internet and eBay, Archie McPhee was a precious source of bizarre gags from around the world. My future parents-in-law got the catalog and cackled while showing me such oddities as a telescoping fork (expands up to 2 feet!), rubber cockroaches, boxing plastic Godzillas and catapult guns that fling plastic bugs, giving me an early hint of the madness that I would someday marry into.
See the pictures and read the whole article here!

    But sadly… you no longer have plastic cockroaches. My favorite.
