But of course, that's not gonna happen. I did the next best thing and
laser-printed a decent facimile onto Post-It(tm) paper (maybe even better
for shenning, since it's non-destructive). I fit a dozen on the page, cut
them out, and took some with me today while Christmas shopping. I wasn't
having much luck (with the stickers OR the shopping). I tried one on a bus,
adjacent to some emergency exit instructions. Big yawn. Found a newly-
installed street crossing button that didn't have a sign attached yet (just
a flat plate above the button), so I stuck one there and that was almost but
not quite funny. There were many opportunities at the mall, but sticking
these onto products that someone is trying to sell could result in
disappointed or angry customers ("I hooked up this fancy electronic coffee
pot and it did NOT have the voice of James Earl Jones!"). I was just about
ready to give up when I figured out The Right Thing To Do. Working very
hard to refrain from giggling halfway across the mall, I found my way to the
back of the pet store, where there's a large terrarium containing a "store
pet" in the form of a fairly massive iguana. There's some text written on
the glass with a permanent pen: the iguana's name, a message asking customers
to refrain from tapping on the glass, and now a sticker saying that the
lizard talks like James Earl Jones. I sure hope someone believes it.
