Eyeball Kid: Now available in crochet form

Tom Waits has many famous songs, and the Eyeball Kid, the titular character from one of them, has turned up on Etsy as a crochet creation. Crafted by classically trained soprano Aileen Robinson, this Eyeball Kid is made of acrylic yarn, comes with a detachable brimmed hat, and looks kind of homeless. You can adopt the blue-eyed boy — erm, sorry, ball — for just 22 bucks. That’s a pretty good steal.
