Spell Check Please


4ca34ab92231e92a61e677cc5a7dfce5

This morning I logged onto Pinterest to find a product to blog about and I came across this pin.  It’s not the product itself that made me laugh, because I have spilled my coffee on my desk before which led to a string of mental curses. This product might actually be useful, except for the fact that I know I would bump into this and manage to spill my drink anyway. Rather, it was the accompanying description the pinner wrote under it:

” Drink clip to keep drinks off your desk and away from spilling on your computer. Genious!!!

Um…Genious??  Clearly you are not one if that’s how you spell it. Spell check goes a long way people!

Just my two cents.

Drink Clip…I must dub thee Unpinteresting simply on the basis of the “genious” who pinned it.

Happy almost Easter everyone! It’s time to get those Easter baskets together, and I know lots of people look for great non-candy items for their baskets. I get that. My daughter is getting older so now she wants things like i-tunes cards, gift cards, nail polish, accessories, etc…however, I found some real winners today when I went online to see what other people put in their children’s baskets. By the way, none of these are a joke either…people actually suggested these.

Polished Rocks...What kid WANTS polished rocks?!?

Pine Cones...because your child can make cute crafts out of them. Yeah, OK.

You can cut out animal pictures from National Geographic, and put them in the Easter eggs. After the hunt, the kids can sort them as to where they might live. Wow, that sounds fun.

Buy a few puzzles and put all of the different pieces in the egss. After the hunt, give the kids the boxes, and have them swap pieces until they all have their "own" puzzle pieces. Then they can do the puzzles. I have 3 nephews and 2 nieces. This would cause a meltdown of epic proportions. Trust me.

The Beer Belly


thebeerbellya__31007_zoom

Look at what I found on Pinterest today…The Beer Belly! Normally I make fun of things on my blog, but not on this post!!!  This, my friends, is pure genius!

Here’s what the company Lazybone has to say about it. (Bear in mind that this company is out of the UK, so they use their own lingo here)

The Beer Belly is named more for its look than its apparent use. Yes, you can use it to drink beer or any other beverage from, however it sits where you would expect any beer swilling blokes belly might be, a bit like a rucksack but instead it sits on your front not your back.

Now your beer starts off on your belly and ends up in your belly. It’s a sort of stealth beer drinking device. Perfect if you don’t want to drink the local grog, just take your own.

Now you can drink what you want, when you want, where you want, with no hassles and for less money! What more could you ask for—now you can drink your favourite beverage at the movies, the footie match, on the plane, you decide. 

The Beer Belly, the stealth beverage system that makes it easy to sneak a drink where ever you want! 

  • It holds over 4 pints, that’s more than a six pack.
  • Your drink is held in place in an insulated very comfortable sling under your clothes looking just like a real home grown beer belly.
  • One size fits most, up to a 40 inch waist and up to 6’8” tall (I personally think they could sell even more if they go up a few waist sizes! Go Big or Go Home!!)
  • You can drink from the tube/nozzle or you can pour directly from the tube
  • Holds hot or cold drinks
  • Made of top quality materials and construction 

I defy you to tell me of a beer drinking man who wouldn’t LOVE this product!! You can take it anywhere, and it fits over a 6-pack!! Unlike women who freak if their stomach is sticking out, men just don’t give a rat’s ass. In fact, they are proud of their beer guts! I know guys that have named their beer guts! If they can secretly drink beer under the radar, the “beer belly” sticking out under their shirt is like a non-entity. This is WAY BETTER than ‘The Camel” you can buy here in the United States that straps around your back!

My husband totally could have (and would have) used this the other day when we went to see some March Madness games. We didn’t even give it a thought that beer wouldn’t be sold at that event, thanks to NCAA rules, so we did almost a full lap around the arena before we had to face reality and gave up. If my husband had owned “The Beer Belly”, I wouldn’t have had to hear him say again and again “I can’t believe there’s no beer!”  I can’t believe I’m sitting here watching a game without a beer in my hand!” “This is ridiculous! Me without a beer!!”  He could have just pulled the nozzle out of his shirt and drank away happily and undetected. I seriously may have to invest! (I’m actually serious about that!)

The Beer Belly retails for $44.95, and if you ask me, it’s worth every penny.

There’s no way I’m calling this one “Unpinteresting!” In fact, it may be one of the most “Pinteresting” things I’ve seen in a quite a while!

I salute you Lazybone on this product…it’s 100% gold!

Grass Armchair


5d4df025663b5124be41308837bd9ceb

Look at what I found on Pinterest today…a build your own Grass Armchair!

Are you sick and tired of hauling your outdoor furniture out season after season? What about when a big storm, like Hurricane Sandy is coming, and you have to hustle to get all of your outdoor furniture put away? Well, when the weather man gives you that “secure your outdoor furniture” warning, you can laugh at him and rest easy knowing that’s one less chore for you to do…because this isn’t going anywhere when the winds start to howl!

With this fine kit, all you have to do is assemble the pre-cut cardboard pieces, fill the open crevices with dirt, sprinkle some grass seed on top, and watch it grow! It’s the Chia Pet of outdoor furniture, my friends!

Doesn’t that look like the mecca of comfort? Although, I would have to say that mowing it is likely a huge pain in the ass.

I do advise not sitting on it to read your morning paper, as it is likely to be a little dewy…and perhaps you shouldn’t wear white when you sit on it either. Grass stains are kind of tough to get out.

If you’re all about the “going green” thing, and have no interest in ever rearranging your outdoor furniture, then start scouring the internet and finding a spot in the yard! It retails for between $115 and $150.00, and there are a variety of sites touting it’s environmentally friendly awesomeness.

Grass Armchair…While I am pretty amused by you…I still must dub thee Unpinteresting.

Tea Bag Buddy


Tea_Bag_Buddy_1-sixhundredLook at what I found on Pinterest today…a “Tea Bag Buddy”. I’m sure if you are a tea drinker, you think this is a great product. Personally I just like it because the name cracks me up…”Tea Bag Buddy“.

I’m so excited!!! Guess what I finally found???  A “Tea Bag Buddy”!! My days of searching for one are finally over!!

If you want a “Tea Bag Buddy” for a mere $4.99, you can get it at Wantlist…or if you ask around…I’m sure you can find your own “Tea Bag Buddy” at no charge.

“Tea Bag Buddy”…while I find your actual premise to be Unpinteresting… I find your name to be pure gold!

Pet Peek


81510

Look at what I found on Pinterest today…the “Pet Peek”. Of course after a little detective work, I found the original site that makes this…as opposed to Solutions, who shows it as out of stock.

Here’s a quick synopsis of the seller’s pitch:

*Every dog should have a point of view, and this product makes it possible!

*Dogs are curious and want to know what’s going on out there! Help satisfy their curiosity and make it possible for them to have a peek!

* Installs easily! (Mmmmhmmm)

I mean, why have this:

duplex

when you can have this:

yorki8

molly

and even this:

Yay...the neighbors kid's are watching our every move again!

Yay…the neighbors kid’s are watching our every move again!

Now some of you might think this a spectacular idea, but I guess you would have to have  a “normal” dog to use this. I, however, have two nutty Mastiffs and I KNOW this would never work out!

Here’s what would happen if I installed this on our fence:

1. We would have to install two of them, and even then they would find a way to torture each other to death by trying to look through the same “Pet Peek”. Just what I need to add to my day…those two trying to annoy each other (and me) more than they already do.

2. Their gigando heads would never fit in there. Just what I need to add to my day…my two big goofs ramming their giant noggins against my fence all day.

3. My dogs drool when they get excited. Just what I need to add to my day…having to clean those damn things off so they could actually see past their drool that would coat it.

4. They would bark like champions at everyone and everything that possibly went on in their fields of vision. It wouldn’t matter if a leaf floated by…they would bark at it…thus the reason I have a stockade fence, so they can’t see. Just what I need to add to my day…two dogs barking like lunatics. I think not.

5. If they saw a cat stroll by, they’d try to go through my fence. Just what I need to add to my day…a trip to Home Depot for some new fencing.

This wouldn’t work for me on any level. It just wouldn’t.

However, if you think this is something that your “normal” pooch would LOVE, then head on over to Pet Peek,  pony up $34.98 each, and get to installing this in your fence.  They even offer free shipping on orders of 2-4. Not bad. (I’m sure if you dig far enough on Amazon, you could get it cheaper…just saying.)  Also, apparently it is pretty awesome according to lots of people, because this  has even won product awards.

As for me…Sorry, but I must dub Pet Peek Unpinteresting.  I have more than enough insanity in my house. I really don’t need to purposely add to it.

Fart Be Gone!


29554941274601545_gUBJ3g4f_c

Hi everyone! I am finally back after a small hiatus and a nice, relaxing vacation in the tropics! Upon my return, I received an e-mail from one of my favorite bloggers, TheRoomMom alerting me to this unpinteresting item. I totally believe in giving credit where credit is due, so THANK YOU RoomMom for this striking accessory!

Ladies and Gentlemen, I introduce to you Fart Be Gone Flatulence Deodorizing Pads! Yes, this is a real product! (I know…I thought it was a joke too!)

Are you sick and tired of having to breathe in the noxious fumes of that one person who has either has no control over their own personal gas valve, or just doesn’t care to? Whether they like to say such clever lines like “Pull my finger!”, “Is there an elephant under my chair?”, motion you over and whisper such loving words to you like “Smell that?”, or if they have no common courtesy whatsoever and just let them rip at will, this is the gift for that stinky tooter of yours!

Here’s a small description from the website I researched it on:

The Flatulence Deodorizer – Disposable is an activated charcoal cloth pad that is worn taped inside the underwear next to the buttocks. The wearer is virtually unaware of its presence because it thin and comfortable inside the undergarment. The activated carbon cloth pad is disposable so you can throw it away after use. (I’d be lying if I said I could actually picture any man using this!)
When intestinal gas is expelled the flatulence filter pad absorbs the gas odor normally associated with the gassy discharge or flatus.

No more smelly episodes, horrible flatulence odors, with these pads that are placed in your undergarment or panties. The flatulence deodorizer is like having on charcoal underwear and will eliminate your gas odors. There is no cure for flatulence but this is a simple solution for absorbing odor at the source.
You can get a reusable one (Yikes!) or you can just get the throwaway version. (I’m hoping people just go with the throw away…but maybe it’s just me! I mean, how do you know when it has officially run its course? I guess the stink returns?)

Anyway, you can go two ways with this…you can get a package of 10 pads for $29.95 or you can get a whole 30 day supply for $79.95.

But wait, there’s more…

Do you work with someone who lets ’em rip after lunch (or maybe you’re “that guy”)…well, the company goes one step further:

flat-d_2244_1052370

That, my friends is a “Safe Chair Pad Flatulence Controller”. This also retails for $29.99 (what a steal, huh?) and is “inconspicous” to your coworkers! It just looks like a nice mat for your chair…but lo and behold, you can fart your brains out all day long, and no one will be the wiser.

Here’s a review:

Comment on the Chair Pad:
I simply love it. It makes me feel comfortable in the fact that I can make all the noise I want when no one else is in my office and have no fear that anyone walking in afterwards will confront any embarrassing, ill odors of any sort. And believe me … with all the medications I’m currently on and with all of the people who come in and out of my office, that is a great weight off of my shoulders.
Pat F. Charleston, SC

Two things here:

1: If I see one of these at work, I will feel compelled to ask about their nice, new “chair mat”…just to see the answer I get.

2: I would hate to work with Pat. She is one sneaky bitch…happily making all that noise with no ill odors. I don’t think she can be trusted. (Yes, I really think Pat is a woman, because no man would write that!)

So there you have it….Farting solutions for the masses. Who knew such things existed. There are days that I think I am in the wrong line of work. I need to make crazy inventions and become a millionaire. I’m going to put that on my to-do list later on today!

If you’re in the market for such a product, you can head on over to flat-d, where you can find all kinds of special charcoal laden accessories for that stinky ass!

Fart Be Gone Undie Inserts and Chair Pad Flatulence Controllers…I dub thee Unpinteresting!

Bosom Sleep Support


86652

Look at what I found on Pinterest today…the Kush Bosom Sleep Support. Yes this an actual product. I thought it was a joke too, until I did some detective work and found the site that sells it.

Unfortunately (or maybe I should say fortunately) I do not have this problem in life, therefore I can’t fully understand the need for this…so I read all about it. Here’s the quick version of what you need to know:

  • An anatomically contoured bosom sleep support designed to help women sleep comfortably on their side and prevent the cleavage wrinkles that form from one breast resting on top of the other. (Cleavage wrinkles? I’m not familiar with that term!)
  • Designed for women with C-cup size or larger breasts
  • Ideal for pregnant or nursing women, post-operative breast surgery patients and side-sleepers (OK, thinking back, I could have used this for a short time after I gave birth!)
  • Cylindrical shaped with a slight curve
  • Constructed of PET (polyethylene) plastic
  • Round nylon plugs on ends (I am guessing those are the pink, nipple like things on the ends. They’re odd and pretty unnecessary looking. I am totally laying odds that a man designed that part!)
  • A slip-resistant coating keeps it in place without straps or adhesives, even as you roll from side to side during sleep. (I assume that’s a plus. Do women’s large breasts act as a clamp?)

I have to admit, I was still pretty skeptical about this…so I read some reviews. Here are a few of my favorites:

* “I have large breasts and used to complain about neck and back pain. I had been sleeping with a small pillow in between my breasts. My friend saw the Kush and ordered it for me.

I was skeptical but I tried it It took 2 or 3 nights to get used to it and then I forgot I was using it. I was very surprised when one morning I woke up and noticed that I didn’t have neck pain.
This product is really a lifesaver. I’m gonna pay if forward by giving one to another friend.” (I don’t really think this is what “pay it forward” is supposed to mean, but whatever.)
*“I hate the feeling of my breasts sticking together when I sleep, especially when I have night sweats. For years I’ve been using small folded pieces of white cloth between my breasts but they didn’t provide any support. The kush is the perfect product to address both of these issues, it is light weight and just the right size. I love it!” (The small folded pieces didn’t provide any support? Shocker!)
* I even gave one to a friend from college who used to sleep with socks between her breasts, and she actually said, “It changed my life!” (I don’t know what part of that is more striking to me…that her friend slept with socks between her breasts or the fact that she actually admitted that!)
And finally, a naysayer’s opinion: “I thought this was a great idea – but it’s just a piece of light plastic – and for the money, not at all worth it. The shape is right – just seems like it should have been made of something softer! Sleep with a pillow instead – it’ll work nearly as well.” (Atta girl! Tell the truth about this product!)
Believe it or not, this item is fairly hard to find in stock. I guess because so many women saw it on “The Doctors” and made a mad rush for it. I did locate a company that sells it though for $24.99 plus $6.50 for shipping.

So look no further if you’d like to buy that large breasted lady in your life a thoughtful Christmas gift! I’ve apparently found the answer to your prayers…or you can just hustle it down to Walmart and buy a big package of men’s socks for $6.50 ( See that? I totally just saved you $24.99!) and she can wad those up and stick them between her big bazoombas for a good night’s sleep. Either way, the sentiment is the same.

Bosom Sleep Support…I would normally dub thee Unpinteresting…but you peaked my curiosity way too much to do so!
