      Too bad none of those have much potential to make you money – spend 40 bucks on facebook stock, next year sell it for triple and use that money to watch some sweet baseball games!

      • You say that, but that woodchuck painter might die and send those paintings through the roof.

          That woodchuck is pretty sweet. Besides, Facebook will make money early on then become a dog within a few months. Don’t hold on to it too long or you’ll be left holding the bag.

            Yeah, the woodchuck painting is probably a better long-term investment strategy. At least it doesn’t have a P/E ratio of 100/1. Rofl.

      The intrinsic value of that woodchuck beats any extrinsic value the stock would accrue. In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised to find that image on some individual pieces of blotter paper in your local underground marketplace soon.

      Your “Pennant Race Game” link goes back to the pillbox hat page. FYI

      …and the “pinata” link goes to the Etsy “search baseball” page.

      So, that ended up helping save me a few clicks. Thanks!

      • Thanks for the info — I fixed the pennant race link. Looks like the pinata has been removed, so oh well… That’s just the short-lived nature of posts like this one. Yay for it being a blog and not a book.

        Oh, and sorry you felt like the post was just an etsy search for baseball. Obviously, I did find many things that way. I also used ebay and amazon and individual’s stores, and spent about two-three hours searching through the price range for interesting stuff to share with y’all as a nod to the whole Facespace news. Really, no need to snark at me about it! THANKS!
