Yes, a small number* of handmade and numbered Ecks have limbo-danced their hairy way across the secure border between Brooklyn and North London and are now available for adoption to discerning individuals.

If you're confident you can give an Eck a good home, please get in touch here, and a social worker will contact you for a series of endless in-depth interviews on a variety of irrelevant, intrusive and highly personal subjects. We particularly encourage applications from passionate animal lovers and the indecently wealthy.

Please answer the following questions before submitting your application:

  1. Were any of your direct ancestors Ecks?

  2. Do you consider a long sticky tongue to be a social asset?

  3. Have you ever owned a copy of The New York Times bestseller, 100 Quick and Tasty Eck Recipes For Busy Moms?

If you answered yes, no or maybe to any of the above questions, you're in with a chance.

*Available Ecks are limited to the number that can be brought through customs with a plausible explanation, ie, extremely limited.

**All proceeds from Eck sales go directly to the master Eck Maker, Nick Godlee.  So you might want to buy a copy of There Is No Dog (at your favourite independent bookshop) as well.
