Roboshrub Incorporated’s “Fortunado class” severance package.
But the concept of Waits-inspired commodities brokered a strange alliance between the Roboshrub Inc. Classical Toy Production Department and the Department of Sequential Edges. After failing miserably to impress our intergalactic overlords with the perpendicular Frisbee, the alliance was nearly scrapped. But the ghost of Sam Williams came to the project leaders in a dream, and added a smidgen of Moxy Fruvous into the Waits mix. Suddenly, the solution was obvious: the toy that most resembled Tom Waits’ early works was the slinky, clearly a supplemental metaphor for “Rain Dogs.” Displeased with the Moxy component, the DSE demanded the immediate supplication of the slinky. This resulted in what can only be the greatest ware we’ve ever sold!
Hours of fun for children of all ages!
The Straight Slinky is composed of nickel and cobalt. In dire circumstances, it can be used to skewer rats or other small mammals for human consumption. Do not place the Straight Slinky near or in the ocular cavity. Recommended for ages 2 and up.
