I found this totally incredible purple poodle at an antique shop. But it’s not just any stuffed poodle. It’s a stuffed poodle that is rigged up to sit on the back dash of your car and be a BRAKE LIGHT. The EYES LIGHT UP. It is so amazing. Oh man. I totally spazzed out when I saw this. Be still my heart!
Yes, it was $20, which I guess is a reasonable price.. but I was a bit short of cash at the time (as I had $0!) But I might get it if it is still there when I go back. I’m not sure I can live without it.
My grandpa was a mechanic and world-class tinkerer. He put homemade back dash brake lights into all the cars he ever owned long before they were a requirement. I know if he were still alive he would have wired this thing right up for me. He might have thought it was pretty cool, too.
