some of you might remember a gimmick from decades ago.
little figures to be put into a glas with water, which

after sorting them, there were some, that i know no use
for (yet) but there was a fair amount of more or less
and as sidekick some nice snakes and fruits.
after rattle-canning them, i can say i made a nice catch
