I don’t know the true identity of the genius that is “mrfrothy” but he has my sincere admiration for these inspired wind-up “Wire” characters. I want them – and NOW. Sadly there is only one set of them, hand made for a lucky person who mrfrothy describes as a friend – I wonder if it is me.
If I could only have one then I think it would have to be Omar Little, if you’re reading this mrfrothy but, even better, if you could maybe slip me two, I would love the Jimmy Ncnulty too.
