Orphaned Figures from Tacoma's Never Never Land
Morgan Alexander of the Tacoma Sun AND Tacoma Street Car fame posted some preview pics from a magical journey into Tacoma's mysterious Chinese Tunnels.
One of these figures caught my eye... and so Holistic Forge Works is offering a bounty to the brave soul who can 'procure' my prize.
THIS IS AN EXTREME EXISTENTIAL EMERGENCY™

|Vacuum cleaner taxidermy?|

|Well said NiN. :) That would be a nice prize to have, indeed. Perhaps the TacomaGnome knows people that traffic in figures like his own...|

|Erik B: I am the only Vacuum Taxidermist in Tacoma that I know, though the customer would need to supply the carcass as I have depleted my supply to extinction. |
Kevin: I would hate to impose on the TacomaGnome any further. The little guy already did me a huge favor burgling me a TAGRO hat and NeckTie

|You're a crafty guy, can't you make one just like it?|

|its more of a prestige/ego thing. a desire for the obscure history of tacoma.|

|Mr. Freitas, I would not be able to help, and it would put my re-entry back into your country at severe risk.
Mr. Nachos, it was quite an event not only getting the propagandized hat and tie, but transporting it to you through your top-notch security was slightly traumatizing.

|No worries Gatsby, you've risen above and beyond. You've given more than enough to 'the cause' already.|

|Love it; love it; love it.
Fabulastic. Hmmmm ... that word seems stretchy to me ...

|Stretchy as in... could be longer?
by tacomachickadee on 2/15/2008 @ 10:06pm
|Most excellent. I look to you for inspiration Mr. Izenmania ... that was spectabularificabulous!|
by tacomachickadee on 2/15/2008 @ 10:07pm
|We must be from a generation of supercalifragilisticexpialidocious or something ...|
by izenmania on 2/15/2008 @ 10:13pm
|Inspiration for how to turn common apparel into adjectives as well, apparently.|

He fought bizarre underground beings in the caves of Alaska, was wounded by a laser before it was invented, and had a background with the clandestine branch of the Tacoma Cartoonists Society.
