Fridge magnet meme

Malacological fridge magnets aren't easy to find. I can't imagine why. Who wouldn't want these cheerful chappies or that handsome snail holding newspaper cuttings on the refrigerator?

I don't know if someone's already suggested this as an internet meme but I'm offering it now. This is the door of the freezer section on top of my refrigerator. (The fridge door is much more boring. It's covered almost entirely in advertisements for plumbers.) Because the space is small, I've been judicious with the decorations.

Apart from the water company's guidelines for water efficiency (this house comes in at 70% of the recommended usage, so it's no wonder the drains are drying up), there are newspaper clippings from the Melbourne broadsheet, The Age. The first is a cartoon by Michael Leunig on the subject of journalists. The other is a photo of Monica Lewinsky.

why do you have this Monica Lewinsky clipping? And why do her eyes in the photo look like the glass balls used by taxidermists? :-O

I admire the caption writer's restraint with this one ...

I'm bummed. My fridge has a wooden door cover. No magnets for me. I used to have my old fridge plastered with stuff.
