Or perhaps something vague and pretentious about the loss of childhood innocence.”
The guide continues: “The truck contains over 60 cuddly soft toys on the road to a swift death. However, in order to bring them to life, four professional puppeteers are required, strapped into bucket seats, dressed entirely in black lycra, pulling on an array of levers with each limb and given only one toilet break a day – proving that the only sentient beings held in lower esteem than livestock are mime artists.”

ROX are the perfect way to bring your beverage to its ideal drinking temperature and keep it there without watering down your drink. ROX are made from 100% Soapstone, a non-porous, odorless, and inert stone that will retain a neutral taste in your freezer, unlike ice cubes. Soapstone has a high thermal mass, giving it the natural ability to retain its temperature for extended periods of time. For Centuries, people have been using soapstone to cook food and keep warm. Now we’re using these stones to keep cool. As Bob Dylan would say, “Times they are a changin”.
