BB exclusive: What does it take to make the creator of Adventure Time laugh?
Meh, This is basically a lame version of a Badge-a-minit http://www.badgeaminit.com/ which is basically the gold standard for making a good button. Every underground band, charitable golf outing, and arts and crafts teacher for the past 50 years has been rocking it and its much more versatile and quicker. I might be a little biased, though, because the company is based one town over from me and the local music scene around here has a lot to thank them for. They are a genuinely good small company.
