One thing every man wants is control, whether it's more authority at his job, or at least the remote when his girl's not in the mood, because it's very difficult to masturbate to Cupcake Wars. Control mini-versions of legendary people, while kind of making love to them with your fingers, with the help of Mullish Mule. From the creative mecca that is Mississippi, Mullish is the chosen moniker of one Melanie Howard, who makes one-off, impressively realistic, handsewn felt finger puppets of famous real/fake people (with slots in back where your finger or a pencil goes), and calls pop culture itself a puppet show, but unfortunately not a Muppet Show, 'cause it would be pretty sweet if Rowlf was dating Scarlett Johansson. For movie buffs there're characters like The Dude (wearing a gray robe, black shades & red sweats, holding a milk carton), a chin-scarred, whip-carrying, fedora-sporting Indiana Jones, and a messy-haired, Iron Man glove-wearing Robert Downey Jr. in character as Tony Stark, although Mel totally forgot to sew on Ghostface's robe. Politics're explored via good/bad versions of Obama (one with halo, one with horns), Bill & Hillary, and Ron Paul, plus future royalty in William/Kate; there're also writers like Poe and Hunter Thompson, plus a bevy of musicians from the currently relevant (Jay-Z, Gaga), to legendary Bobs (Dylan, Marley), to Jon Bon Jovi and Bono, who unlike Jon, is essentially living off the Edge. Mullish Melanie'll even make a custom puppet of you or your dog, or even felt envelopes, which is all your GF had to do to realize it was more than once or twice you felt yourself to Emmanuelle in Space.
