When you look at a French’s mustard bottle, what do you see? I see a giant pile of soft pretzels I’m gonna drown in it, but someone more creative (and less obsessed with carbs) like Eric Barclay sees a circus lion. In fact, he sees potential for art in all kinds of products, like creamer walruses, laundry detergent kitties and soda can pandas. If only my parents had been this creative when I was a kid—then the other kids wouldn’t have made fun of me for playing with trash because we couldn’t afford real toys. Like Mama said, Santa can’t buy toys with food stamps!
