When memes collide

I know, spring is finally here. But apparently your soap still needs a scarf. Just FYI.

Curb your dog's cravings...

If I told you these most unfortunate dog treats were made with human-grade ingredients, would you be less horrified? I didn't think so. Neither am I.

I'm sorry. Let's forget this ever happened.

DoodyPops Dog Treats biscuits hypo allergenic , wheat free , hormone, antibiotic free, artisan made Poo:


Why They Hate Us

No, not the terrorists. The babies.

Parents, please. This Memorial Day, Flag Day, Fourth of July, Labor Day, Veterans' Day, Iwo Jima Day (I'm making that up), etc....please think twice before turning your tyke into a walking flag pole. I'm no expert, but it just doesn't seem like a good idea.

Buzz kill

I'm as delighted as the next rational being that Barack Obama made it to the White House (seriously...Sarah Palin, we hardly knew ya). But these glow-in-the-dark 3-D Obama refrigerator magnets are not doing it for me somehow. And the Bill Clinton magnet isn't any better.

A note to the well-intentioned crafter: Maybe glow-in-the dark plastic isn't your medium? I say this with love.

The saddest dog in the world

He'll whine about this in therapy someday.

I'm confused. Not only is this...unusual...piece...being discounted just when I thought the economy was starting to look up, but it turns out this is not a paw but a partial skull.

Also, even with the discount it still costs more than a teethcleaning.

Clearly I have a lot to learn. Or should I say, bone up on? (Sorry.)

New Hampshire humor?

I guess this joke wouldn't work for New Jersey. Too toxic. I kid!

Catnip State of Vermont:

Ferret cozy

The pirate theme is topical, but the coziness is timeless.

Just don't mistake this for a fleece cap, or you'll have a ferret and his most recent droppings on your head.

Smartphone/wampum mashup

The item name says it all (and then some):

Keep your phone on vibrate for a special peyote-inspired effect that's sure to impress your business associates. StumbleUpon


I know a few catphobes who would NOT like this picture. And I think I know a few cats who would not like this garment.

Is it wrong...

...that sad models make me smile?

I guess the Queen of the Mistral has bad days too.

Of Coffee Cozies and Frappe Skirts

Apparently, some trends are seasonless.

Costume drama

If, like me, you feel a little sad when you hear the words Renaissance fair, these collars won't be for you. But they're for someone out there, and that fact, paradoxically, makes me a little happy. Go figure. I know, I've got to start trying to care a little less. StumbleUpon

Spring knits

Yes, it's time to rotate your apples' knitwear toward those pastel cottons. StumbleUpon

Questionable taste

Oh my. StumbleUpon

Balletomanes take note.

Duly noted.

If you're not a balletomane (I love using that word), fear not. There are versions of this shirt for you (high tops, bikini, cowboy hat...whatever your privates might possibly hypothetically wear). StumbleUpon

The coziest pills on the block

Come to think of it, where are the condom cozies? Crafters? Anyone?

After you've festooned everything else...

Which would be less terrifying for your unsuspecting guests? A giant crimson pufferfish or a Charlie Sheen lookalike in a cowboy hat?

Personally, I think this would be more of a gotcha if the decals were on the inside of the lid, so they'd give you a bit of a start as you're about to...start. Well, that's how I'll festoon MY toilet. Consider yourself forewarned.
