I may have shared this little guy last year, but he's worth sharing again. He's Eneman, the mascot of Fleet enemas. Not only did someone think Fleet enemas needed a mascot, but someone also thought he'd be festive dressed up in a Santa hat and turned into a Christmas tree ornament. I would love to […]
