Oh christ yes - trademark and copyright infringement is more likely to send you to jail than child porn in NZ c 2016.

Here's an interesting an unusual hobby for chicks.  Pretty good at it too.  
Wonder how much she wants for the owl in the top hat?

I've been so busy with my crafts (evil inventions satan forces me to do) that i haven't had time to pursue the money shot:

Mink stoles for Barbi, made from mole furs.

Moles has the finest fur in the world. They are too small to bother with, human-wize...but they happen to be about the right size for a Barbi.

Custom Barbi paraphernalia is always a hot item for rich people. "Unique" is also always hot. "Minatures" is another dependable zone of hotness in the artsy-crafty zone. My dad told me that, and he knew his shit.

Di? Do you have moles down there?

That's brilliant - I love that stuff.

The father of one of my mates when I was a kid was the chainsaw safety guy for the entire 300,000 ha forest in the central NI. He was amazing at carving lumps of wood with a chainsaw.

I never miss the lumberjack show at the Easter Show.

To my great shame I was about to answer no to that,  but checked anyway, and yes we do have ... 2 species of them!
Tiny things, about the size of a big mouse/smallish rat.
Marsupial Moles!  Never heard of them, so thanks for the education.

My love,

I'm not even lying...
I had Mary come look (she escaped from her Ma's for a moment) and she freaking loved it!

It's way good.

holy cow! cool piece of education, Di. I knew zero about these creatures. Seem very similar to our placental moles, but they aren't really genetically related, in modern terms.
Dug in a bit, and was amazed that their fur was traded, way back when they were common. So they must have nice fur.
Ours do. Finest fur i've ever seen...yet, never heard of anyone working it. 
That's why I conceived of the Barbie stole.

thanks so much for the education.
This is as cool as finding out about naked mole rats.

fine cross-roads of evolution.

Your moles evidently 'swim' through the sandy soil...they don't really make burrows.

I'm pretty excited.

(um, not a nerd, though. Think of me as a James Dean guy that forgot to die in a car wreck.)

I revisited the Marsupial moles and found a video I hadn't seen. Which raises the question. How do the bloody things breathe??
We hear of people who smother in minutes in a sandslide, why not these things?
