Instead of a(nother) Box of Books, I Got a New Magic 8 Ball in the Mail

Everyone, meet the Union 76 Magic 8 Ball:


Question: Union 76 Magic 8 Ball, how have I carried on not knowing of your existence?
Union 76 Magic 8 Ball: Dream on.
Question: How did Craig find out about you?
Union 76 Magic 8 Ball: Be more specific.
Question: It’s because Craig is awesome, isn’t it?
Union 76 Magic 8 Ball: Absolutely.

Until today, I thought I knew about all of the Magic 8 Balls out there, and I also thought I owned pretty much all of them. This is one of the benefits of collecting something extremely niche. This thing appears to be vintage, which is probably why I didn’t know about it (though, naturally, I do have some older Magic 8 Balls, too). It’s lost a little bit of its water, so it’s a touch hard to read, but it’s so wonderfully bright and has a lot of sayings I haven’t seen in other Magic 8 Balls, like “Not now I’m busy.”


Question: Union 76 Magic 8 Ball, should I be reading picture books right now?
Union 76 Magic 8 Ball: Oh yeah.

The 8 Ball has spoken.

Thank you, Craig.

    It seems it has much to tell us…

    I’ve been thinking that I am probably not consulting my Magic 8 Balls enough about my daily affairs. This madness has to end.
