I went through a googly-eyes phase when I was in college, wandering ’round applying them to the most inappropriate and disturbing objects I could find, and taking pictures. The mentionable results of this project include googly-eyed tombstones, firearms, surgical instruments, and urinal cakes. None of these photos will ever see the light of day. You’re welcome.

Anyway, I wish it had occurred to me, at the time, to mount magnets on ’em as the clever wonks at EMSL now have done. Would’ve saved myself a bit of money, and rather a lot of time removing adhesive from some very unpleasant places.
