Garbage Pail Kids were collector's cards that parodied Cabbage Patch Dolls usually in gross ways. And each had a name that was rich with hilarious pun and wordplay. For instance, Adam Bomb (get it? Adam Bomb?), was acute little fellow whose head was exploding just like an atom bomb. I guess it was funnier during the cold war. Each card was also a sticker. To a nine year old in 1985 it was mind blowing. I always thought it would be great if they had made GPK dolls. It seemed like it would have been easy enough.
This Instructable (which I am writing in first-person perspective for a change) details how I made a "full sized" sculpture of Smelly Sally. Smelly Sally was card number 108a in the 3rd series of GPK's released in 1986. Smelly Sally is an ugly mermaid that has emerged from a newly opened sardine can.
