Waaah! It’s a Pin Press art piece of junk.

Waaah! Someone in our family paid money for this.

Waaah! They brought it home, stuck their fingers in it to make a design(?) then reset the pins to do it again.

Most likely they put their face in it to turn their nose into an ‘art’ that ends up looking like a poor man’s 3D Shroud of Turin; not razzing the shroud but the idea of sticking a face into frame full of pins. Then they put it away. And it stayed away. Until today when it gets tossed out. Goodwill? Maybe. Trash? Could be.

This toy falls under the category of ‘executive toy’, an item or gadget titans of industry keep on their desks to stimulate creativity. These include, but are not limited to, lava lamps, yoyos, Etch-A-Sketches, Rubik’s Cube, ant farms (ugh), paddle balls, paper weights, and shrunken heads bought in curio shops down sidestreets in Shanghai that can be used to turn your enemies into hamsters or gargoyles.

Proverbs 12:11   He who tills his land will have plenty of bread, But he who pursues worthless things lacks sense.
