    We'll send you a fabulous sticker of Mad King Thomas' crest, so that you can go out and claim things for the monarchy. Because colonization is cool? Okay, maybe you can just use it to seal a love letter.

    Pledge $10,000 About $10,000

    An all-expense-paid winter vacation with Mad King Thomas in the Caribbean!
    This is a joke, but also, we're serious. If you give us $10,000, we'll spend a long weekend with you in some sunny clime. Hang out on the beach and deconstruct sexism, colonialism, and globalization with us. If the irony is too much we'll just start singing off-key Queen songs. It's the ultimate Mad King Thomas experience, plus sunshine!
    Offer only valid during the months of January, February, and March, for obvious reasons.
