It's never to early to start, what?

This year being the 800th anniversary of King John's affixing his seal to the Magna Carta, the British Museum and the Library of Congress and others are offering all manner of Magna Carta swag, including this functional little gewgaw.

From the website: "The Magna Carta (originally known as the Charter of Liberties) of 1215, written in iron gall ink on parchment in medieval Latin, using standard abbreviations of the period, authenticated with the Great Seal of King John. The original wax seal was lost over the centuries. This document is held at the British Library and is identified as "British Library Cotton MS Augustus II.106."

White, Blue, or Pink: $13.95.
