Archie McPhee

CatalogueReceived the new Archie McPhee catalogue in yesterday's post {also have the complimentary calendar}, and I Am always amused at the novelties offered herein - of particular mention, the religious icon and historical figure action figures {still no LaVey!} and "devil-duckie" collection, along with the many fun & wonderful devil-themed baubles.

And on tonight's Penn & Teller's BS, did anyone notice that some of these were actually used in the "Noah's Ark" display in the pool? It was an immediate recognition here.
