I'm thankful that this toy brings to light a serious issue, possibly the most serious issue, that is affecting our society today. It unwittingly raises awareness for the dangers of animals smoking. Hundreds of forest fires every year are caused by raccoons and squirrels that have come home from extra long shifts at their jobs, only to fall asleep on the couch while watching Naked and Afraid reruns and puffing on a menthol. Not to mention he countless possums and chipmunks who, in a fit of coughing from years of tar buildup, are unable to make it safely to the other side of the road. These tragedies can be avoided if we are willing to hold the tobacco companies accountable and put a stop to their over-aggressive marketing to woodland creatures.
Smoking also makes the bone structures of bunnies look kinda freaky, as evident in these Infected Smorkin Labbits from Frank Kozik and Scott Wilkowski. These were made for a comic con release many moons ago, but Frank found a bunch of them while he was packing up to move to his new studio. The few remaining pieces will go on sale today (Monday, July 7th) at noon Pacific time for $150 each. These are only available at www.frankkozik.net.
