Mischief PR and McVitie’s have teamed up to create the world’s first lickable wallpaper made of 1,325 McVitie’s Jaffa Cakes (cookies). Inspired by Willy Wonka, the wallpaper was installed in an elevator which they are calling a “Lick-able Lift.” The elevator can be found in the offices at Engine, a London-based communications company.
Who ever thought this was a good idea? Does kneeling down to lick your chosen cookie really increased your chances of not getting one that has been infected with the Ebola Virus or some other virulent plague on mankind? You would never know who had licked the wall before you. Why not just leave jelly beans in the urinals for me?
I like that they decided to create this petri dish in a heated elevator. That should really speed up the process. Why do I feel that in six weeks a whole city block is going to have to be destroyed with fire to stop some mutant wall licking zombie outbreak?
I understand now why some people bring a gun to work. All the wall licking makes you crazy after awhile.
What would temp a person who is take a 30 SECOND journey to another floor to start licking the walls? What if you were the ONLY person who licked the walls when the elevator was full of people? What if you were the ONLY one who DIDN'T give into their natural human impulse to taste everything in the immediate environment? What is the proper etiquette in such a situation. Is it women and children first or everyone for themselves?
It's all quite disturbing.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
