"I personally design and make every button on this site, and I have a simple rule: I never sell a button that I wouldn't be happy to have on my own laptop bag. I'm not coming into this as a professional button maker trying to make money, I'm coming into it as a geek who wants to increase the number of funny buttons in the world."

“I know the look of an apple that is roasting and sizzling on the hearth on a winter's evening, and I know the comfort that comes of eating it hot, along with some sugar and a drench of cream...

But, if you ARE abducted, the good news is: "Do you toss and turn at night worrying about how your family would survive if
evil aliens took you away? Have no fear. You can always purchase an alien
abduction insurance policy to cover this risk." At least I THINK that it's good news. The dog tags would be a lot cheaper.
You know how it goes. Kidnapped and experimented on by aliens. But it's all over now and you're all kicked back with brewskis and the aliens say: "Well, the least we can do is give you a ride home. Which way?" And as you look into their viewscreen, you realize that you have no damned idea. Unless you have these dog tags. Just show them to the aliens and, BLAM, you're on your way back home. And they even come with a money back guarantee, if you don't find your way back home!
