Things from Pilcrow!

1. This is what I made from my book for the auction for the New Orleans Public Library. The auction raised $4,000 and my Hitler Turtle was just a small part of that. This is the note that came with the turtle:
Congratulations on your Hitler Turtle!

It is an interesting, valuable, and pathetic turtle you have purchased.
Feeding from its own feces, it roams with bloody teeth through
very tiny aquariums. It’s not evil, but the Hitler Turtle has an
unpleasant disposition. Not a good pet for small children. Mostly
interesting for its shell which very clearly resembles Adolf Hitler.
Uncertain origins. Don’t feed it. Don’t clean it. Don’t even look at it!
