This may be more of an idle topic, but I have to know if anyone else has one of these.

I'm afraid I don't have a photo to share (yet), as it's at my parents', but when I was a kid my mum somehow managed to get her hands on a large pin (about 3-4" in diameter) with a big STOP sign on it. And around the sign were the words:

"Don't feed me!
I'm Special!"

I'm still not sure if she was just looking out for me, or if this is related to her 100% confirmed twisted sense of humour.

Anyone else have one of these? I'll try to get a photo for you all of mine soon enough, this is just too goofy to let it pass.

(If you are a parent, and have one for your kids, please don't make them wear it...unless you really need a laugh :D )

I've seen them on some sites also. I see people with their own pins all the time, I'm pretty sure you can order them from places like Walmart photo etc.. Check out Michaels also, they might have a little pin kit or something.
