the fat pikachu plushy at work has been moved out of the cupboard and next to the bin. i dont want him to be thrown away but i dont want to ask to keep him in case everybody finds out i want the scatty old fat pikachu plushy
guess the only answer is........ theft
what's the best way to clean a ~20 year old fat pikachu plushy. can i just bung him in the wash
@envgen When in doubt on cleaning, google Ask A Clean Person or Jolie Kerr https://adequateman.deadspin.com/my-beloved-stuffed-animal-needs-a-bath-and-im-a-nervou-1691689087/amp
what should i name fat pikachu
@envgen i really think you nailed it with Pikachunit
let me tell you the story of how i saved fat pikachu
when i got into work this morning fat pikachu was still by the bin
later on someone is sort out the rubbish and picks up fat pikachu and one of the teachers says "oh you can get rid of that"
and i blurt out "CAN I HAVE HIM.....uh..my friend really likes fat pikachu. cos he's the original pikachu. i'm going to give him to my friend"
and the teacher's like "uh ok"
@envgen local pikachu hero
i had to stuff him into my bag so a) nobody else would know that i was taking home this scatty old fat pikachu except the three people who were witness to my outburst in the office
and b) so the kids wouldn't see me with fat pikachu cos the whole reason the teacher wanted to get rid of fat pikachu is cos he had caused some very nasty arguments, and after all the tears i didn't want them to see that i had in fact claimed fat pikachu for myself
my housemate does not like fat pikachu

@envgen I did not realize this about Pikachu. That's kinda fucked up that they gave them liposuction or something.
whoa ok there's a complicating factor
i just picked him up and polystyrene fell out of his ass
he's full of beanbag beans??? i guess that's why he's gone so flat, he's got all squished over the last two decades like beanbags do
makes me less eager to put him into the wash, can i wash a beanbag plushy in a washing machine
should i just buy some stuffing and restuff him (he'd be softer too)
@envgen I wouldn't put him in the wash if he's got a leak. re-stuffing and sewing the hole up might be the way to go.
@envgen tbh my recommendation would just be buy a sizable bag and then stuff him to desired plushness, not knowing the dimensions of the fat pikachu
@envgen maybe try to empty out the beans? you could probably wash him if he's free of stuffing before re-stuffing, that'd prevent any patching up that you have to do from coming undone in the wash
@envgen I'm sure you can get replacement stuffing easily enough, and a needle and thread will fix the hole. (Or glue.)
