Oh, my goodness, that was too hilarious! Brontesaurus!

But, dang, that pudding's not included. :-(

Kimberly said...

I saw that this morning and my kids watched too. I was crackin' up and my kids were shouting "I want one! I want one!"

Daron D. Fraley said...

AWESOME. :)

Melanie-I'm lost on that part, was pudding a regular feature of the period novels?

Kim-IF they really made them I would get them for my kids.

This was even more cool for me, since I'm reading Jane Eyre right now. Thanks for sharing!

You're welcome Kim.

Thank you for sharing that!

Great David-glad you liked it, made me laugh pretty good teh first time I saw it, and now my son really wants that Brontesaurus too.

Krista said...

He he he... I love the mustache disguises! And I want pudding.

David J. West said...

Krista-am I missing something about pudding and those novels, do people serve pudding in them?

Melanie Goldmund said...

It's been a while since I've read Wuthering Heights, but I don't remember any pudding in Jane Eyre. No, I was just commenting on the fact that there was a scene at the end of this "ad" where it plainly said "Pudding not included," and it made me wonder why they even showed it. *shrug*

Lisa said...

Where can I buy my action figure?

Okie said...

lol...great video. Thanks for sharing.

I actually have a handful of literary "action figures" (I've got Shakespeare and Sherlock Holmes) and the same company has put out a number of other authors and inventors.

But they're not quite as cool as these 'power dolls' as they don't come with any cool disguises, weapons or "super brontesaurus" mode.

Fabulous!

David J. West said...

Thanks Melanie-I just couldn't remeber if there was an inside joke or not.

Lisa-sadly they seem to be out of print.

Okie-still Shakespeare and Sherlock are pretty cool on their own.

For those wondering about the pudding reference...
'Women are supposed to be very calm generally: but women feel just as men feel; they need exercise for their faculties, and a field for their efforts as much as their brothers do; they suffer from too rigid a restraint, too absolute a stagnation, precisely as men would suffer; and it is narrow-minded in their more privileged fellow-creatures to say that they ought to confine themselves to making puddings and knitting stockings, to playing on the piano and embroidering bags. It is thoughtless to condemn them, or laugh at them, if they seek to do more or learn more than custom has pronounced necessary for their sex.' - From Jane Eyre
