Ebay -- Croquette Babies and Velveeta Keeper. PLUS The Gallery of Regrettable Food
The Japanese version of Mr Potato Head??
I found this on Ebay and realized that some people have probably never seen one of these or would even know what it's used for.
This is a Velveeta Block Keeper. In some areas of the country, Velveeta brand American cheese still comes in a large block to fit inside this case (some of you may remember these from the days before Velveeta Singles were available). The dimensions are not listed on the auction but a Velveeta block measures approximately 3x3x10 inches.
Someone PLEASE buy me this book.
A little snippet for your enjoyment:
Good Lord, good Lord. This looks like . . . like Orson Welles' liver. Like a shaved Horta. Like a cinnamon roll made entirely out of horse fat and brown sugar. Like Jabba the Hutt's prostate. I don't know what the hell this is. Maybe a roast of some sort. If so, it's a good Depression-era diet aid: this is what you would eat if you had more money, so be glad you don't.
How could you not fall in love with a book that has this description for starters?
