You can now adopt your very own Baby B.E.E.R.!!!  You can choose to adopt a Red, White, and/or Blue Baby B.E.E.R. and get a B.E.E.R. Party Campaign Committee approved CERTIFICATE OF ADOPTION for each Baby B.E.E.R. you adopt.  Each Baby B.E.E.R. is about 5 inches tall and holds a padded star that reads:  "U.S.A.".  (You may be wondering why the baby B.E.E.R.s don't have antlers.  The reason is that they are just too young to have developed them yet.  When you get your baby B.E.E.R., they are only a few days old.)

Toilet Seat

What bathroom would be complete without an official B.E.E.R. Party Toilet Seat?  The lid reads:  "Picture Les Vilda In The Oval Office".  You don't need to use it in your bathroom.  Hang it on your wall, above your fireplace, or maybe even on your front door (add a small cabinet knob below the picture and you'd have a wonderful, very original, door knocker).

Each....$25.00

Photo coming soon. Sticker - Picture Les Vilda in the Oval Office

Do you like the sticker, but really don't need the whole toilet seat?  You're in luck!  You can now purchase the sticker ONLY.  The sticker reads:  "Picture Les Vilda In The Oval Office".  You don't need to use it in your bathroom.  Stick it anywhere you like - it's a "sticker".  Size is about 8" W x 10" H.

The B.E.E.R. Party Wants You! Poster - Color

Move over Uncle Sam, there's a new kid in town!  It's a new twist on an old, but very popular, poster.  I thought it was a natural progression, being Uncle Sam and I have such similar tastes in clothing and all.  This is a glossy 8.5"x11" poster suitable for framing.

Each....$5.00

(Click photo for larger image)

Mobile Campaign Headquarters Poster - Color

Here is a wonderful item that will be sought after by young and old alike.  It is an 8-1/2 x 11 inch glossy color poster of your B.E.E.R. Party Candidate standing next to his Mobile Campaign Headquarters.  Each poster is signed by me, Les Vilda, your B.E.E.R. Party Presidential Candidate.  This ain't no rubber stamp deal - you get my real autograph.  And...they are suitable for framing!

Each....$5.00

Mobile Campaign Headquarters Poster - B/W

This is the same poster as above, only this one is in Black and White (also glossy).  That's right, this one is autographed also.  Some have considered hanging these in their garages or other places rodents have become bothersome.  I have been told that my photo has been known to repel varmints as large as raccoon!  I make no guarantees on this, but for only $3.00, wouldn't it be worth a try?

Each....$3.00

JOHN HATCHER MEETS THE DEVIL

This audio cassette tape is mountain man tall tale, which was first published in 1850.  John Hatcher, a rocky mountain fur trapper, was known for his ability to 'spin a yarn'.  In 1847 he told this story, of how he met the Devil beneath the Spanish Peaks, to the seventeen-year-old Lewis Garrard.  Garrard was so taken by Hatcher's story that he wrote it down in his journal.  In 1850, Garrard's journal was published.  Les Vilda, a storyteller and Living Historian from Nebraska, reads the story as Lewis Garrard wrote it in 1850, but as John Hatcher may have told it.  This story is as amusing as it is amazing!!!

Each....$10.00

THAT REMINDS ME OF A SONG

(This is the audio CD version of the audio cassette offered above.)

"The Management" writes....

We would like to introduce you to Les (Rabi) and Dan (Boo Bear) Vilda.  Separately, both have been called "The connoisseur of fine manure", " The guru of doo-doo", and "The philosoper of feces".  And, when you get these two together, it's quite obvious that they really know crap.  We asked ourselves, "What's the sense of knowing it if you don't share it?"  We convinced Rabi and Boo Bear to gather up some of their "A" material and bring it to a recording studio.  Some have described this material as a "side busting, gut wrenching, roll on the floor, laugh out loud" type of humor.  Some didn't.  We hope you agree with at least part of the first group.  ORDER ONE TODAY!

Each....$10.00
