Is there a more fitting toy for our times? Half of us are on some type of medication, the other half probably should be, and we're all held captive by the evil pharmaceutical industry that not only controls our government but our very ability to exist. It's not all petting kittens and sipping lemonade here folks; there are hard truths to be found on these pages.
Luke Chueh and Munky King are set to release The Prisoner today at noon pacific time. It's a little bear inside a little bottle of Vicodin and it's fun for the whole family!!! On a serious note I'm glad to see a designer toy really tackle something heavy and not just rely on being a cutesy character. Not that I don't enjoy that stuff, but I also like art that is challenging and at times uncomfortable and I think that is an area that is desperately underserved in our little niche corner of the world. This feels like something I would pay admission to go see rather than something I could actually own myself. But I could and so can you later today (Tuesday, January 17th) at www.munkyking.com.
