okay, i know what i want for christmas

via metafilter.

Ladies and gentlemen, introducing a long-overdue addition to the canon, one that cleverly combines the nerdishness of board games and the stunning, hallucinatory, evergreen coolness of Hunter S. Thompson:

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: The Board Game!

An artist named J. R. Baldwin has created a one-of-a-kind tribute to HST and his Gonzo madness in the form of a board game. Naturally, it features Heavy Substances of all kinds:

"I wouldn't recommend sex, drugs, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me." --HST

And of course, the game comes in a suitcase.

As HST said, “Every now and then when your life gets complicated and the weasels start closing in, the only cure is to load up on heinous chemicals and then drive like a bastard from Hollywood to Las Vegas ... with the music at top volume and at least a pint of ether.”

There's only one of these awesome creations in existence, so put in your order for my Christmas present now! Prove how much you love me!!! :)
