Giant candy bar. It's gone now. DeLISHious! Erni collaged the whole thing so tight that I wanted to take a hammer to it, BUT that would have destroyed the collage. You can see what's left--rather interesting things going on in Erni's brain, I'd say, probably X-rated--and it took about 15 minutes of unwrapping to preserve that much.

The "envelope" must be seen also (most of it fit): Love seeing those haptic werewolf labels BIG! Bifidus Jones and De Villo Sloan might want to take note that Erni has put them in some extremely honorable company (Dieter Roth is at the other end).

Thank you again, Erni, I couldn't have been more surprised that you sent this, what a treat!!!

You live in a very interesting city and I am envious. Look at the graffiti and posters, wow. (Are you sending me that big thingie?)

Ok Erni, the worry is gone and I look forward to whatever shows up next. I would anyway!

I'm wracking my brain to think of what to send the Werewolf next. I have to guard Erni's packages from my family because when it's food they eat it all!!

Oh my goodness, you don't need to send me something bigger, Erni. My first items from you (urban and domestic trash) made for big packages!

You know best about sending big stuff through the mail, Erni, I have no doubt. Interesting that they have no problem when you write "domestic garbage," though. But yah, food is probably a no-no at some stations of the postal system. Paranoia runs rampant since ten years ago.

These aren't big werewolves, Erni? Are these merely medium ... or even small??? I love them, so any sizes you'd like to send me I'll be glad to have. The names of your four art heroes are very recognizable, of course. I like how you wrote "one collage" on the postal form, when the package weighed more than any collage of that size ever would. You had me guessing, and no doubt my grouchy postman too.

p.s. "no way out," those are scary words for us claustrophobics!

Laughiiiinnng--"until they're bulletproof." I've never seen anything like these shipments from Erni. It takes all your brain power and physical strength to figure out how to open, and then open, the things. (A post-Tylenol- poisoning curse that will last forever.) We're kind of like guinea pigs (he even included a rather large picture of a guinea pig in his earlier September shipment); the challenge of opening the thing is part of the art.

He's quiet, but I've seen him very briefly on a couple of blogs this week.

I picture all the presents elaborately collaged and taped until they're bulletproof. But you're right-it probably is. Where is the holy heck is he these days????????

It's probably pretty much like christmas at Erni's house all year round, whaddaya bet?  I love Erni.
