There was just one famous face of 1801 and her name was Eunice. She stood right here, where I’m standing now, over 3000 years ago and invented the world’s first sticker.

It was a crude affair. Honey smeared on the back of a piece of tree bark upon which she had drawn something she called “The Bloody Eye of the Unforgiven.”

It was an immediate success which she followed up with a line of fuzzy easter animal stickers.

She died later that same day, crushed by the weight of several solid-lead books which were popular then.
