Dear Lord! Put it back! That's the ugliest thing I've ever seen!

Methinks,

That's the Toddy model. You can get a really beautiful piece of art for $8500. :)

I don't think this is something I must have yet. Seven hours to make a miniature replica of my head doesn't convinced me to "add to cart".

I've been waiting for this. Massive computing power with 3D modelling means 'Garage Entrepreneurship' has returned from the days of Hewlett Packard and Steve Wozniak and Steve Jobs. Productivity will be soaring and the big companies are going to be eaten up by the ants. This is going to be fun!!!

What, you don't want to litter the world with mini busts of yourself?

I think I'd prefer the world were littered with Ron H. minibusts than those shoes!

Haha those are something of an abomination.

I'm not going to hold my breath. Making one shoe a day isn't likely to drive large companies out of business any time soon.

There's not much danger of that, at that speed. I might live long enough to fill one large trash barrel. :)

Wait! The shoes, or my minihead?"

Don't be so sure.

Why do you say that, Ron H.?

Surely you don't bear an uncanny resemblance to Obama or Nancy Pelosi.

Well no, nothing that horrible, but in any "sexiest man alive" contest I've ever entered, when it gets down to just me and Brad Pitt, I always lose.
