'He will starch his moustache.' 'That is night-gab. How can he starch a tepid mouse?'

It goes without saying that more love and personal thought goes into a hand-made copper-wire sculpture than into any shop-bought $mas gift.

Hoping that this theory will go down better with the family this year.

I'm much more interested in the left-handed gift. My list of those who deserve one of those is significantly longer.

Also, my list for you checks off as null this yr. Sorry.

Plus copper has resale value, unlike most of your gifts.

Well, making the fuse is easy, although the burn rate tends to be a tad unpredictable (ie, the man in the picture deeply desires a prosthetic), but I've never been able to find one of those hollow round canonballs that seem to be so popular with the bomb iconography crowd.

Mine tend to look like an 8" length of PVC pipe with glued on end caps, primarily because I like to use PVC pipe with end caps for my IEDs...

We all lament the rarity of the copper that stays bought.

Small Animal care tip: Keep your mice in a closed cupboard with a fan heater set on 60C. Not so tepid now, little feckers!!!

Don't blame me if AK starts an acrimonious argument about what one repeatedly called a tepid mouse while the other insisted that it was a torpid moose.

Beware the torpedo mouse!!

Not associated with "Willy's In Space" (which will happen once negotiations with the North Koreans and Virgin Galactic are concluded.)

The stand of his copper art looks tipsy as heck. Maybe it's a 5 lb. necklace?
