If you've got a problem with this, maosm, the alternative was faces or faeces.

and you can feed a man for life
Checkmate mother fucker!
At work I'm making an art supply catalogue at the moment. There are too many bloody kinds of pens, pencils and paints. There should be less of all of them to make my life easier. Like who actually buys £200 boxes of colouring pencils like this? http://store.carandache.com/ch-en/581-luminance-6901-assortiment-76-couleurs.html
(Also I have to actually read all the info sheets the manufacturers send, and it turns out the more expensive the art material, the more likely it is to be highly poisonous)
Oh yeah, I'd love to be *given* one of those boxes, but I'm not sure I'd be willing to shell out £200 for them, and I'm not sure how many people would either, but someone must.
They also sell the pencils separately, so you can build up your fine heirloom collection of colouring pencils as you go. They also do an even fancier wooden box with gold bits on it that costs £40 more, if you want to do some super fancy colouring.
It looks lovely
As I've been working on it full-time for 5 weeks, and clocked up 14hrs of overtime this week to make sure all 100+ pages are ready for commercial printing tmrw, I'd hope they'd pay me more than two hundred quid . . .
Schoolkids the world over start with pencils, I bet a lot of the world don't move on from pencils at all. Ikea free pencils alone probably beat the world supply of pens.
