Biz Baz buttons

I think I have the Bizarre Bazaar button ideas all done, though I keep finding more. Tonight I'll get the machine out and start the button factory. If I can get the cat to help, maybe he'll launch into Hi, my name is Joe.

Here are some new ones, both story-related and not:

  • "No Story Left Behind." Thanks, Granny Sue!
  • "In theory there is no difference between theory and practice. In practice there is." —Yogi Berra. Thanks, Jill!
  • "It's not the heat, it's the humility."Yogi Berra
  • "No bread. Then bring me some toast!"—Punch, 1852. I couldn't find more info, so I'm assuming it's from the magazine Punch, not from our dear wicked friend Mr. Punch.
  • "With me, it's story, story, story." Bernard Malamud
  • "If you can't handle the heat, don't tickle the dragon."
  • "Metaphors be with you!" I tried to find an attribution for this one, to no avail. If you know who first coined it, let me know.
  • "A good metaphor is something the police should keep an eye on." Georg C. Lichtenberg
  • "Trixie rules!" This shows her picture with a red background and is a companion button to "Vote for Trixie!" Here's the picture.

And then the brainstorm, late last night, the famous Ghost (note the one black eye):The button isn't yet made, so you'll have to imagine this round and shiny. It uses a lot of black ink, so I didn't print a lot of these.

Time to set up the factory.
