Erni Bar: Seemanns braut ist die see (A sailors bride is the sea)

A 2D piece from Erni?  Really?  There is more than meets the eye ...

What looks flat to some, may not to all.  Remember it wasn't too long ago that sailors thought the sea was flat.

Well Well, the joke is on all of us ...

Are you ready for this?

The milk carton is filled with these Eukalyptus Menthol Bonbons extra stark.  I have to shake the box for about 5 minutes before one falls out.  I can hear KATMOM saying, "I want the wrappers".  So be it, they will be yours.

Thank you Erni, you're a real Fishermans Friend !

Good things come to those who wade... or is that wait.

My local post office moved yesterday!...(couldn't pay the rent at the last building?)

Good news: they are located on a street closer to me! Yay!

Stopped by to get stamps, and the gals asked "How is the smiling doggie with the teeth?

...we have nothing for you from him today "

Erni is well known at ΕΛΤΑ. the clerks are ALWAYS grinning with one of his parcels!

They probably are, Dean, but in a ... complimentary ... way.

Don't worry Erni, they are laughing after you leave!  Then again maybe not.

And the bonbons are always fab. One can love them too much. But who cares?

Cut me, slice me, any way you want me!! Ha ha!

Ah, now I get it! We have to unfold the cartons here, less plastic waste!

Huh? Why me, Dean? The Eucalyptus link?

I don't understand where they come out?!! I like the carton idea though! I think you should cut a hole in Erni's smile and he can laugh the lollies out!!!
