and of course the container name, being sent to Ann Pringle and all, was just too funny!
The backstory to the modification of the illustration being that once I put this deadly mushroom into a food container, I started worrying about starving grad students at the other end who might mistake it for food (yeah, I know, highly unlikely, but still). And so I turned that happy little Pringles guy into a Deaths Head! Don’t tell the Corporate folks, ‘kay? That’s gotta be a trademark violation! ;)
… if you want to bring one back, and don’t want pieces breaking
off in your basket!
I am not sure how useful this observation is for MO; however, it is amusing…
