I Don't Drink... Wine...

Tucked away in Mysterious Corner is this innocuous looking wooden box. It has no latches or catches or markings of any kind. It's a plain pine box.

But if you know how to push the right bit just so...

He's a Drac-In-The-Box. I got him in New Orleans about 13 years ago.

Probably less frightening to small children (and coulrophobes).

I am SUCH a coulrophobe! Didn't know there was a name for it - very handy. Thanks RJ.

I used to have a wooden mango that sat on a bookshelf. When people picked it up, a wooden cobra would pop out. They'd scream. It was cool.

Sadly the mango/cobra is no more. Bud ate them both.

Jam: When he pops out, he does do a great flourish of his cape, which you fold in a special way when you pack him in. It's pretty impressive. Even small children jump.

Joey: Yesterday my cat got into a shopping bag. He liked playing around in there, but I eventually had to let him out.

Anne Arkham: Is there anything that Bud doesn't eat?
