trump ice-head trays let you cool down while the planet heats up!

trump ice-head trays let you cool down while the planet heats up!

in light of trump vowing to withdraw the US from the paris agreement, scott kelly and ben polkinghorne have made these fun, little moulds to drown our environmentally-aware sorrows. one is a mass-produced (100% recyclable) silicone tray. ‘fun for the whole family!’  the other is a mackinnon and sauders, hand-moulded super trump, single-serve tray that creates one, highly rendered, sweating old sport. good show!

you may recongnize mackinnon and saunders as the studio behind the puppets of a little movie called fantastic mr. fox. the hand-moulded trump tray makes one 3/4 inch ice head — but it’s a numbered edition of only 25. the mass produced recyclable tray will need to sell 5,000 to offset the cost of production and raise £20,000 for charity. for those who choose to support this cause, scott kelly and ben polkinghorne have also concocted some classic donald J. cocktails to ironically enjoy. trumptini, sex on the disappearing beach — just remember to always trump responsibly. drinking has never been more responsible, as all profits from the sale of trump trays are to be donated to the environmental justice foundation (EJF).

  • Yellow ice seems appropriate.

  • Earth is heating up because scientists found out the earth’s orbit is getting closer to the sun. Tides are getting erratic because the moon is getting further away from the earth.
