Some heroes get purple heart medals, others get a Ninja Turtles button.
It's hard to understand the logic of a button collection. After pinning a few to your shirt, they start to look tacky. So what makes them so popular? Is it the freedom of expression with no real commitment? Or maybe it's because they're just so silly and fun.
Either way, the Turtles had a slew of them on the market. The Sewer Den buttons up.
Unless you're attaching this button by using duct tape, you're out of luck. The tough plastic makes it nearly impossible to latch this thing onto anything. I tested it on a shirt, belt, and a jacket - a fail every time.
This prize was featured in a previous post, so I'm rehashing a bit. But hey, this rad button deserves a spot here too. Thomas' Toast-R-Cakes were a round, flat corn muffin that fit easily into the toaster. Throw on some butter and you had yourself an excellent breakfast treat. I enjoyed the heck out of these things...and collected enough proofs-of-purchases in return for this stellar button. Ah...the days when you could get free stuff for simply eating like a pig...
Thomas' were all about quality foods. So naturally their buttons would also be of top caliber. The fastening pin is still sharp and the reflection is majestic.
So we went. In full costume. And ya know what? Barely anyone else did...especially adults. What looked like an awkward experience actually morphed into an event for the ages. We were an instant hit. Kids wanted to take pictures with us, news outlets were interviewing us, a mother even asked us to hold her baby.
Out of all the times I dressed up as Raphael in my life, it never quite reached the levels of fun/insanity that hit on that April of 2009. And I'm glad I've still got the button to commemorate that day (you can even see us wearing them in these pictures).
BIGGEST BUTTON YOU'LL EVER SEE
