A Ventriloquist Figure Collector Disease???


A couple of weeks ago I did a blog about some health issues I was having at the time called Diverticulitis.

Well, Steve from the Dummy Shoppe, sent in this email that I thought was cute and wanted to share with everyone.


Hey Dan,

Glad you are on the downhill side of the problem. It is not just for old folks though. I had it in seventh grade. I have found that eating everything in sight cures the lack of fiber. Of course that brings on other things like diabetes. . . Live and learn.

Every time you look at the control stick of a puppet. . . you should have known that you were already suffering from. . .

“Diverse – Stick – U – Like – Us” . This is a rare but not uncommon disease found primarily in Vent Figure Collectors. Not only do you have the disease, but you are also a carrier. Maybe you should be quarantined???
