Now It's a Party

Says the seller about these soaps:  "The crackers smell EXACTLY like a saltine cracker, and the cheese is slightly scented with the saltine scent as well."

Fans of the cheddar smell are out of luck.

Why Didn't He Call?, cont'd.

Here's a dating tip. Maybe don't wear your Medication Earrings on the first date. Just a thought.

Says the seller:  "A fun gift for medical personnel or someone with a quirky sense of humor."  I would add: Who is not looking to attract or retain any new friends.

Fast food (Indoctri)nation

Could this cheeseburger baby rattle be any more awesome?

Hang on. The seller says:  "Also great for cats!"

Now it's perfect.

Confusing, cont'd.

If you're a little tired of all those hand soaps shaped like food items, here's a refreshing change of pace.

Says the seller:  "This little Titanic is lightly scented with the fresh fragrance of summer rain...It is a calming and very relaxing scent."

Alright then.

Story of my day

Yes, kraftomatic is under the weather (again).

The seller of this felted toast says:  "I can cut it in half if you prefer."

In unrelated news, I miss my mom.

Confusing Feelings: Old and Weathered Clamshell Edition


This "bivalve dreamscape" makes me a little queasy. Are centerpieces supposed to do that?

Oh, those are pom poms. Now I'm just confused and a little sad.

Turkeys, cont'd.

Here's something else to be thankful for this November 26:  The fact that you aren't toting this turkey leg purse around with you.

No disrespect.

Says the seller:  "It's also the perfect accessory for fairs & the Renaissance festival."

Why yes. Yes it is.

Here's something to be thankful for:  A visual reminder that some people's relatives are even stranger than yours.

More Lil' Misnomers



Color me literal (again), but with a world of baby names to choose from, these formerly common nouns seem like odd ones to run with. For your child and/or your sample wares. Or at least for these particular wares.

A classic Kraftomatic parlor game returns -- now with a higher degree of difficulty. Because I am open to constructive criticism. To a point. StumbleUpon

Hapless holiday greetings

Which is more unfortunate:  the apostrophe abuse, or the whole thing?

It's sort of a riddle.

The coziest H1N1-themed tissue cozy on the block

Good times!

If you love 'Annie Hall' like I love 'Annie Hall,' you know that Alvy Singer couldn't quite say I love you. He was also not great with live lobsters. But I digress.
