PHOTOESSAY: The Desk Tchotchkes of Jones.

October 29th, 2009 by | Filed under Uncategorized.

Your intrepid correspondent waded through the dangerous swamps at the Jones Soda World Headquarters in search of the odd and the arty. Here’s what he found:

OBJECT: Animatronic Flashlights

OWNER: Chas

These funky flashlights came in handy for Jones’ Earth Day Event (see it at  http://www.jonessoda.com/files/earth-day.php). They moo, roar, whinny and cluck when activated, turning every inconvenient power outage into a barnyard extravaganza!

This triumvirate of nodding felines is supposed to be lucky, but Hannah tells your correspondent that, late at night, when Hannah is trying to finish her month-end reports, they tell her things. True, terrible things. She’s tried throwing them away—once she even threw them off the Bremerton ferry into the deepest part of the Sound—but they turn up back on her desk the next day like nothing’s happened.
