One of a Kind, continued


Here's the next in a series of creations described as one of a kind (OOAK).

For $250, this life-size reimagining of Cousin It as a female internist could be yours.

Says the seller: "Iza would be a great addition to any children's or other hospitals, medical clinic, lab, dentist or medical specialist!"

I report, you decide.

Hot links

Says the seller:  "Hot links plush toy makes a delicious and versatile addition to your collection. Use it as a scarf, whip, fire rescue system or to restrain burglars until the police arrive."

Any questions?

The package is kind of genius, no?

Getting warmer

Here's a cold-weather twist on the fake-moustache meme.

Is there a more ridiculous way to embarrass your friends and offspring while keeping your face warm? Probably, but I can't think of one right now.

And on a lighter note...

That baby mummy seems to have upset a few readers. My apologies. Let's never speak of it again. Maybe this will lighten the mood.

Or maybe not.

Notes the seller: "Hoodie style carrier has a button side closure, and can be adjusted to any size furbabie."

I better keep trying.

Or maybe great conversational contraceptives. Could go either way. In theory.
