Perspective

Treasure Chest Opens to a Special Gift...a Guardian Angel! Bring a smile to a friend with this precious crystal angel tucked inside a lacy chest. When chest is opened, praying angel with golden accents delivers cheery words to brighten a day! Angel is 1 1/2" tall, chest is 2 3/4" x 2 1/2" x 2 1/4". Keepsake is truly a gift from the heart.

A gift from the heart? More like a gift from China. But I digress...

Maybe there's something wrong with me, but when I look at this, all I see an angel rising out of a coffin. (Your experience may vary)

Tick, Tock, Shit, Clock

Silverware Kitchen Clock: Perhaps the most appropriate– and creative– kitchen clock ever! A perfect gift for anyone who loves to cook, the silver face is surrounded by silverware. Even the hands are a knife and fork. Metal/ plastic. Req. 1 "AA" battery (not included). 15"Dia. $14.99

Every time I see this type of clock, I imagine that it was originally a one of a kind $250,000 monster created by some snotty, high-end American designer with food issues in 1962 to make a statement about world hunger and silver mining.  After it ended up enshrined at the Museum of Modern Art, generations of fakes and imitators caused it to devolve into the world of $14.99 shitty Made-in-China clocks at websites like Collectors Etc.

Or maybe I've seen The Devil Wears Prada one too many times.

Regretsy Bait

This...is gag-tacular.

DETECTIVE: Can you describe what the robber was wearing?

BANK TELLER: It was some kind of... oh my God, it was horrifying. I can't!

DETECTIVE: Yes you can, just take your time. What was the robber wearing?

BANK TELLER: It was as if someone dyed a hooded sweat shirt too look like an ugly denim jacket and then covered the front with everything they could find from the fabric aisle at Michaels.

DETECTIVE: We will find this monster and put her away. You have my word.

Not For Sale in New York City


Laundry room magnetic decal will help you kick the “wash day” blues with its cute and colorful clothesline scene. Attaches instantly to the front of a top-loading washer or dryer—or other metal surface. Flexible poly/vinyl material with magnetic backing removes easily; won’t mar appliance surfaces. 26" L x 16½" H. $10.85

I would love to attach one of these to my building's washing machine and wait for the reactions of the chronic complainers in my coop.

"Is that coming out of my maintenance bill?"

"I'm allergic to magnets!"

"My cleaning lady can't read English.  Is there a Spanish version?"

"Clotheslines destroy the environment because they are made from rope, which comes from the Amazon rainforest."

Is It Strong Enough for Me to Hang Myself?

Hang your stocking under your favorite holiday photo! Photo frame is 3 ½” X 5” and can be displayed horizontally or vertically. Santa’s sleigh clips on top of the frame.

When I saw this, my fists clenched and I yelled, "Fucking why?" at the computer screen. What a useless, redundant piece of shit. I mean, really. If you have a mantle, then chances are you already have a ton of pictures crowding it. But by all means, get this ugly piece of shit that looks like something you'd find on Regretsy.
