This past summer the Pi Gallery in Kansas City presented a show of Merkins! They’re super fab; I can’t choose my favorite.

Is it Traveling Merkin Salesman’s Display Case by Bette Levy?

Or The Beaver State by Bean Gilsdorf?

Or Carolyn Kallenborn’s Yes or No?

Other bizarre and great merkins include a cherry merkin, one of fish skin, and a merkin of gummy worms. The entire collection is available for viewing online.
