My “Dewey Defeats Truman” Moment


Oh my! I took a chance on betting who would win the election when I decorated about a dozen of these ornaments last week, and boy did I lose the bet.  Wishful thinking will get you every time, I suppose.  I’ve been in a deep dark funk since Tuesday, but now I’m fessing up to my poor political prediction skills and offering this sad little relic from a reality that never was at a reduced price.  I did have a some fun including these in shipments to my wholesale accounts this week with a note saying, “Greetings from a parallel universe where Hillary won the election. So sorry to hear about things in your reality.”

11/14/16 News Flash: All twelve of these ornaments got snapped up by a shrewd Wallyware collector this morning! So sorry to disappoint those of you who are looking to buy some. -Tom

I’m really in a quandary about how to go about my political humor right now.  I’ve done a lot of jokey pots about Trump this year, and “Trump Coffee” has been my number one selling mug over the past six months or so. But now that Despicable Donald is going to the White House, I’m thinking that making jokes about the man who has the potential to bring fascism to America isn’t the kind of thing I want to trivialize. Time will tell. Look for a blog post coming in a little over a week with a series of wonderfully dark and bizarre mugs that I thought up this week. It was great therapy for me to envision these designs, and they could be some of the best pots I’ve done all year. Stay tuned.
