If I were in charge, the American flag would be replaced with a red-white-and blue foam Number One hand. We’d be the only country represented by a novelty item. How cool would that be?
At the very least, I think Murketing.com should have its own foam Number One hands. Some day, maybe.
Uh, anyway, I’m going to be out of pocket today, so I invite you to read about the history of the foam number one hand on Designboom. (Via Freakonomics blog.) It was invented in Texas! And much more recently than I’d realized …
When I have more time I’ll have to see if anybody’s done the historical research on multicolored wigs.
