I remember these pages very well, but never ordered out for anything.

I guess that wasn't a mistake on my part. But thanks for testing these for me!

Hey, overall it was a fun experience, even when the pranks didn't turn out so hot. It was always a thrill just to send away for something and waiting for the mailman to deliver it. It almost didn't matter what it was.

I remember those! I too was disappointed with the X-ray specs. My cousin got me with the "nail the quarter to the floor" gag, I think from the same company that made the x-ray specs. Classic stuff.

Hi Cedric! Yeah...I think all of that stuff came from some mysterious single source somewhere (imagining a Willy Wonka-esque factory pumping out crates of rubber chickens, joy buzzers and fake vomit).
