This disturbing little toy has been sitting on my desk, staring at me whenever I sit down:


It is about one inch tall, sort of a little plastic capsule with a metal bearing ball inside. If you throw it around, it rolls and tumbles in a creepy-yet comical way. PJ got a few for Christmas and showed no interest in them, and one of them eventually showed up at my desk.

And I don’t know how it got there.

Worse, according to the Internets, there’s hundreds of them out there. WHERE ARE THEY HIDING?
