Can't you just see it? Some folks sitting in an office, trying to come up with their next souvenier pitch. "Hmmm. What about Washington D.C. recipe cards?" "No." "Pincushions! Everybody loves pincushions!" "NO." "What about..." "NO. Hey, remember a few years back, when we did that Instant Washington? The Evergreen State in a capsule?" "Yeah, yeah..." "Well, what if we..." "Put Washinton D.C. in a capsule?" "Yeah." "yeah." "I think it just might work!"
Well, poor dears didn't figure on none of the shapes looking like what they were supposed to be, did they? Little lumps of foam. That's all they are. The We're-number-one finger shape is actually supposed to be Washington's head and his monument combined. My favorite part is, "Watch the Nation's Capitol Appear!" As though dropping these in some hot water is going to be like the Wardrobe to Narnia or something.
