Foam Monster In Emotional Reunion With Severed Limb

Aled Lewis, known for his Threadless t-shirt designs, presents “Au Voleur!”, in which a large one-handed foam monster spots his missing hand being waved around in a sports crowd.

Lewis explains the thinking behind “Foam Monster In Emotional Reunion With Severed Limb”.

“In my mind, when Foam Monster clocked his missing hand across the crowd, he would let out a Wookie style groan. He’s not really a monster in the traditional sense. He is not scary at all, and is the type of guy who would politely gesture for you to return his hand, rather than snatching it away. So now you know – and when you see someone pointing a foam finger around, remember that there is a Foam Monster somewhere, who is being forced to drive automatic transmission.”

    I always wondered if that thin green foam man existed. Clever thinking :)

    What a brilliant idea! A extraordinary observation, and an even better execution (pardon the severing connotation).
