I got interviewed for a Washington Post article on the Archie McPhee Horse Head Squirrel Feeder.

Necessity, they say, is the mother of invention. When it came to inventing the horse head squirrel feeder, however, a rather more complicated process was at work.
“We were trying to think of a way to be nice to squirrels and humiliate them at the same time,” said David Wahl of the Seattle-based novelty toy company Archie McPhee.
David’s title at Archie McPhee is “director of awesome,” and the company does sell a lot of awesome stuff: bacon-scented body wash, an Edgar Allan Poe lunchbox, an inflatable unicorn horn you strap on your cat.

I got to remake the move Titanic (which I have never seen) for less than $20! Love my job…

I am proud to be a part of the Unicorn for President campaign team.

Please share my new campaign video with everyone you know! Together we can put an end to reality based politics. Unicorn 2012!

I am so proud of my part in developing this product. Truly, we have advanced the science of squirrel feeding and humiliation.

Big Head Squirrel Feeder - We’ve reinvented the squirrel feeder for the 21st century! Why not humiliate the squirrels while they eat? Makes it look like they have giant, hilarious head!!

Me as Chester McGuinness shouting about our new product Vinderpants, the underpants for your hands.

I’m especially proud of this one. How do you market broken candy?

Jim’s Bag of Broken Candy from Archie McPhee

Jim the Graphic Designer was shocked when he saw we were throwing out broken candy. “What a waste,” he said, “broken candy tastes the same as unbroken candy! It’s a little harder to eat when it’s in pointy shards, but so what?” Then Jim had an idea, why not sell it to less discriminating customers? So now Jim goes out and collects all the broken candy and puts it into plastic bags. You get two pounds of candy for $7.23 and Jim sleeps better at night, secure in the knowledge that all that sugar has found a loving home.
