I want to place my order for the as yet unwritten collectors book of Coco Joes goodies. Now someone has to write it.

AND... It's probably in the 16 pages I just went through, back in the straighten out your tiki part, but... What's the story on the bent tikis? Is the "fire at the factory " story true?

Cool, now please take photos of the backs of them, the right sides of them, the left sides of them, the tops of them, and of course the bottoms of them. Also, please take photos of them individually.
