Kitten hips, hmm...yes, that's an odd one.

I'm glad to know elastic is back. I didn't even know it had ever left!

What are these 'certain impurities'? Can you imagine the even more terrible things that used to be in cigarettes? Eek!

Yes, the cigarette itself is an impurity. :D

On this one, I've got so many questions I don't know where to begin... For starters maybe, why are there two men in the sky in their pajamas, with one pulling the other on a log?

The reindeer centaurs are weird, too. I've never seen anything quite like them.

Yes, that was my next question. And why are there trees in the sky? And what does all this have to do with textiles? :D

And speaking of people riding on odd things...

I wonder how accurate those numbers are. Pretty odd to imagine. With all the cell phones in the world, those numbers are way different now.
