    Locusts, hail, frogs, and lice; but no mice? The plague collection is incomplete without them!

    I’m guessing that the black one is what Metallica called Creeping Death

    The company that went with this idea should have let it pass over.

    Failure? I think you’ve opened a new market.

    Almost as funny was the Ten Plagues Finger Puppets I saw at Target a couple of weeks ago. Really.

    Hopefully they don’t do with the first born sons

    A thunder and lightning globe would actually be pretty cool. As would a tiny tornado.

    Maybe try weather instead. Start with clouds and then try snow.

    A lava lamp would represent the plague of blood nicely.

    I saw ten-plague headband sets and mask sets prior to Passover this year…probably finger puppets were out there too.

    The one with the water turned to blood didn’t really sell well at all, except in Transylvania for some reason.

    I wrote a book a few years ago called “Classic Failures in Product Marketing.” I think it’s still on amazon. I’m working on a sequel—“Dumb, Dumber, Dumber-est: The Funniest and Stupidest Business Mistakes Ever Made.” — Donald W. Hendon, retired university professor of business administration

    I’ve never understood the whole "Plague of frogs " thing. Frogs are not pests. Frogs are harmless, even beneficial. Hardly “plague” material.
