Everyone's a big winner when you read Rawbean's Rants.

A while ago Rawbean, author of Rawbean's Rants, started a new contest which involved story telling. She asked for a description of an event "that you either witnessed or partook in that made you laugh so hard you almost peed your pants." It didn't take long for me to decide that the now infamous porno truck incident would be my submission. The good Rawbean picked that story as the winner and announced I would be receiving a prize in the mail.

After much anticipation yesterday I received in the mail a package from Rawbean. What could it be? Is it porn, a toy truck, or video of her and various female friends dancing in their skivvies to the funky beats of the Village People?

I ripped open the package to reveal a box, pictured below:

It's a 'blind box' toy called Mongers. It's a line of cartoon characters who look angry and smoke. The idea behind blind box is that you never know which one you'll get until you open it. Sort of like Garbage Pail Kids trading cards. I got Sam and Pete, which are salt and pepper shakers who don't shave and look mean. Sort of like me really. I have proudly displayed them in my cubicle alongside my Boba Fett and C3PO bobblehead figures that I got from Amy a few years back.

But wait there's more. I was hoping Rawbean would give me an album of some mildly obscure band she listens to, but she went a step further and made me a mix CD. I'm listening to it now at work and I am enjoying it. Big thanks to her for taking the time to make this for me.

WHOOOHOO!!! I just read this - that arrived pretty fast.

I can't believe you got TWO characters.

Hope you enjoy the CD. Let me know more details.
