This placenta crochet piece by Souviner_Kattunge is adorably disgusting. Man do I love Flickr.

One of the best product crossovers ever has been released from Japan. Hello Kitty and Gloomy Bear together at last, it’s Japan’s cutest and most violent. Perfect.

While I’m on the subject, check out this crazy Hello Kitty MAC cosmetics video:

5ba8016a03293533_etfingerE.T. Finger…right. Funny, because I swear I saw some really hot lesbians giving each other some E.T. fingers the other day in a movie. They must have been trying to heal each other, yeah, that’s it…heal each other.



Awesome New Website: Swaptree

Thursday, February 26th, 2009

swaptree_logoI just discovered this site the other day…oddly enough at the advice of my mom…and it rocks. You post a list of things you have and a list of things you want. Whenever somone has what you want and wants what you have, it will help you two set up a trade. You can do games, cds, DVDs and books. I think you should all join and start trading with me. Try it!

Beer Pong Linked To Herpes Rise

I don’t hate booze, but I really do think drinking games are pathetic most of the time. Maybe it’s because my ex of three years was an obsessive beer drinker. Regardless, I couldn’t help but laugh when I read this headline. Funny enough, they’re only talking about oral herpes from sharing glasses, not the other kind from losing one too many beer pong games.

* In 100% unrelated news, I added a new post on Cheapskate’s Handbook for the first time in a long time. Go look if you like free sandwiches and taking care of your pets.



Hasbro Word of the Day: “Dildo”

dildoscrabbbThis is too funny, I have no idea how the word ended up in the Scrabble’s word of the day database, but it was actually up on the Hasbro Scrabble site today. Things like this make life worth living.



A Toast to Comfort

snuggiepubcrawl-chicago

Consumerist tipped me off to an awesome event in Chicago -a Snuggie Pub Crawl. I know most people hate these things, but as someone who practically spends all their home time with a blanket on, I want one. And I want to go to this awesome event. If only I lived a few thousand miles from my home sweet home in San Diego. No, I think I’d still rather live here and choose blankets willingly, not out of necessity.



Bear Sleeping Bag -A “Roaring” Good Time

Friday, February 20th, 2009

greatbearsculptI love this bear sleeping bag by artist Eiko Ishizawa. BoingBoing discovered it and I have to say, I need one. You know they’re extra good because if you’re camping in the wilderness, they might just save your life when an angry bear attacks your camp. Ok, maybe not, but they’re surely warmer than the average non-bear bag.



Alcohol Shooter

Wednesday, February 18th, 2009

shot-gunIt’s been a while since I posted a new “stupidest inventions ever” article, but then I came across this beauty, the Alcohol Shot Gun. Like the Bierstick, the point is to shoot alcohol into the back of your throat to swallow booze as fast as possible. Additionally, this one is even worse in that you can actually shoot alcohol right into your friend’s face. Great idea, let’s shoot each other in the face while we’re drunk. Surely no one will go blind this way. Surely.
