So here's the story: I crafted a hand-made custom Hypnotoad as a tribute to Futurama.  I listed it on Etsy along with my other pop-culture tributes.  Last week a lawyer from Fox sent a cease and desist order to Etsy and made them pull the listing down.  I know derivative works like these are protected by Fair Use, but who has the money to defend themselves in court just to prove the point?

So I decided I won't be bullied by a network, and I'm moving this item whether they like it or not.  And while we're at it, let's raise some money for an awesome non-profit organization!

I've just created a listing on eBay where bidders can bid to donate money to the USO.  As a thank you gift for the donation I will give the Hypnotoad to the auction winner.  And to make the donation go further, I will dollar match the winning bid up to $100.  That means if the winning bid is $100, I will send $100 out of my own pocket to the USO, too, for a total donation of $200.

Please view the auction here:…

Hello! I hope you don't mind my posting on your page today! I'd like to invite you to a brand new group; Pop Culture Crochet. I'd love to make this group a hub for all things crochet with a pop culture spin and I think some of your items would find the perfect home there :happybounce:

Is your profile picture the Cthulu ami from the Creepy Cute crochet book?  I recently made one, but I had a hard time figuring out how to work the wings up.  My wings look REALLY bad.
