Together, in flatness.
So one day last week a letter arrived at ThinkGeek HQ. It was a pretty big envelope, but no one thought anything was weird until we opened it and the image of a flat little boy fell onto the desk.
This little paper boy was Flat Stanley, who, as the stories explain, was accidentally flattened by a falling book. Due to this newly flattened state, he decided to become a world traveler. Mostly because he could mail himself anywhere.
Stanley found his way to ThinkGeek HQ after a geekling by the name of Mia was given the task of sending him to the coolest person she could think of. Of course she thought of Timmy.
We immediately started taking pictures of Flat Stanley pretty much everywhere around the office (because that is what you do with Stanleys). These are the result of that whirlwind afternoon.
Timmy and Stanley stand at the door of ThinkGeek HQ during one of the first real snowstorms of the year. Wave at the camera, guys!
Stanley doesn't quite do well when it comes to playing games of Foosball. Due to the flatness, we suspect.
Tron, however, is an entirely different story.
Our codemonkey Guillaume attempts to teach Stanley a little bit about coding Perl.
A trip to see the customer service monkeys work their wizardry. There is so much awesomification happening on that washed out screen. You have no idea.
Flat Stanley visits the Wall of Awesome Happiness, and nearly gets lost amongst the hundreds of postcards there. Eep.
It's a snack! I mean, a trap!
Stanley isn't the only flat one in the office.
Exhibit A: Our favorite Mandalorian.
Exhibit B: Flat TIMMY!
Now we will be sending Stanley back home to Mia in the far off land of Illinois along with all of these pictures and copies of your comments. Just so she knows how much fun we had, and how awesome it was having Stanley as a guest. So leave some comments for Mia!
Thanks for visiting, Stanley! We'll miss you, little guy.
