Fiji Mermaid Vintage Baby Doll Dangle

ImageLook at what I found on Etsy today…a Fiji Mermaid Vintage Baby Doll Dangle. (Try to contain your excitement!)

I do not get the whole little plastic baby doll crammed into things trend. Is it just me, or is it odd? I never liked these freaky little dolls when I was a kid, and I most certainly don’t like them now either. I remember having some of these in a larger version in my room as a kid and being totally freaked out by them because I felt like they were watching me. Creepy…just plain creepy.

Anyway…here’s the seller’s big “selling points” as to why you should shell out $24.00 (plus shipping) for this…

Have you ever heard the story of Barnum and Bailey’s notorious Fiji Mermaid? The exhibit was a famous fake, featuring the top half of a monkey and the bottom of a fish. This version is decidedly cuter with a baby doll instead. 

This playful, yet macabre pendant evokes images of mid-century traveling carnival side shows and eerie seaside promenades. Has it been tucked away in a curio boutique, away from prying eyes? Or locked in a keepsake box for safety? Take home this Fiji Mermaid and spark endless questions from your friends.

A few things here:

1. Why do people love the whole side-show kitsch thing? There’s a reason they stopped the freak/side shows…people became intelligent enough to know they were a sham. If you want to see some freaks, just head on down to your local WalMart. The freaks are there in droves. I”ve seen a bearded lady or two in mine…but I digress.

2. It’s a dangle in case you missed that. It comes on a large crappy chain (that is guaranteed to turn your neck green) to dangle around your neck. Um, no.

3. “Take home this Fiji Mermaid and spark endless questions from your friends.”  Here’s how the endless questions from your friends will go:

Friend: “Hey, what the hell is that creepy thing you’ve got there?”

You: “Oh, it’s a one of a kind (OK, really two of a kind, because there’s two in stock) Fiji Mermaid Vintage Baby Doll Dangle, that I scored on Etsy!”

Friend: “Scored, huh? What’d you pay for that colossal piece of shit?

You: “I got a good deal on it! It only cost me $24.00 plus $6.00 shipping!” (Unless you’re from Canada, in which case you can tack on an extra buck….or anywhere else in the world, an extra $3.00)

Friend: “You paid a grand total of $30.00 for that? Are you out of your mind?!?”

Then said friend would tell the rest of your friends what a jackass you are for spending $30.00 on this thing…thus sparking the endless questions the seller speaks of.

Personally, I say you save the $30.00 for something better, and save yourself the hassle of the endless questions about it. If your friends are anything like mine, they’ll always find something else to bust your chops endlessly question you about soon enough anyway. You don’t need to dangle this as bait for them. (Do you see what I did there?)

Fiji Mermaid Vintage Baby Doll Dangle…That’s Shitsy!

By the way, my 11 year old daughter just walked in,  saw this on the screen and said “What the heck is that? A plastic baby doll crammed in a fishing lure? Is someone selling that? It’s stupid!”…and promptly walked away with a “Hmmmmph” over her shoulder as she left the room. Atta girl!

Fart Be Gone!


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:


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!

Moss Bath Rug


I thought you might need a closer look!

I thought you might need a closer look!



Look at what I found on Pinterest today…a Moss Bath Rug. I researched this item a little further, and yes, it is legit.

Without boring you to death with the product descriptions I read (You’re welcome!), I will just give you the skinny on it myself:

*The rug itself is made from foam, and it contains three types of moss: Ball, Island, and Forest.

*Clearly it thrives from you standing on it when you get out of the shower soaking wet, and from the humidity in your bathroom after you take a nice hot shower.

*It’s environmentally friendly, and as green as you can get…blahhhh, blahhhh.

OK, let’s just cut to the chase here:

*I did not just take a shower so I can step my cleanly washed feet on some moss. It defeats the purpose for me. Now I have to sit down and clean my feet off again, and dry them with a towel. Damn it.

*I don’t know about you, but I shed so much hair that it winds up everywhere. Just what I need, another friggin chore to add to my never ending list of fun things I do when I come home from work…cleaning my hair out of the moss bath rug. Nope, not appealing.

*This baby costs an average of $115.00!  W.H.A.T?!? Uh-uh.  Not happening.

Moss Bath Rug…I dub thee Unpinteresting.

Stump Tables

Look at what I found on Etsy today…Stump Tables. They retail for $169.00 plus $60.00 shipping.  Whaaaat?  If you want some stump tables and are looking to save money, come on down to the Jersey Shore. Thanks to stupid Hurricane Sandy, we have TONS of wood like this lying around free for the taking…all you would have to do is buy yourself some “non-toxic wood sealer” and you’ll be all set. Sad, but true.

Stump Tables for $169.00…That’s Shitsy!

Copper Jello Mold Wind Chime…

Look at this sweet Black Friday gift idea I found on Etsy today…A Copper Jello Mold Wind Chime with Christmas Cookie Cutters and Beads! (Whew, that’s a long name!)

A few things here…

First of all, what exactly possesses someone to come up with this collection of items to make into a wind chime? Was she staring at her dessert making items right before Thanksgiving and thought “Heyyyy! Who needs to make desserts when I can make my dessert making tools into a wind chime?” It would totally get her out of making the obligatory holiday desserts, but it makes for one Shitsy wind chime! Using Christmas cookie cutters to create a chiming sound? Really? You know what she’s going to do here, right? She’s going to make these for every single holiday she can get cookie cutters for and sell them on Etsy…or try to sell them, I should say.

Secondly, what exactly does one say when they open up their Christmas gift and sees this monstrosity staring back at them? I think I would just hold it up in a stunned silence, and let everyone else in the room add their own witty comments. It would just be easier that way.

If you would like to adorn your front porch or back deck with this beauty, you’ll need to pony up $25.00 plus $6.50 in shipping costs, and click on her item like a champion, because this is the only one in stock…shocker, I know.

20 mm Wooden Beads


Look at this Black Friday deal I just found on Etsy…a pack of 100 20 mm wooden beads! They were $13.75, but today they are on sale for $11.69. Are you wondering why these are so exciting? That’s because they aren’t just ANY 20 mm wooden beads…they are “made from the ash tree in sunny Crimea, in the Ukraine!” That got your attention, now didn’t it? Yeah…me neither.

How’s about you head on down to your local Walmart or Michael’s Craft store, pick yourself up a bag of these for like $4.00 and save yourself the $13.75 plus $10.50 in shipping costs. You can still claim they are special 20 mm wooden beads from the ash tree in sunny Crimea in the Ukraine…no one will know the truth, but you…and me…and everyone else who reads this post. We’ll just keep that our little secret…I promise.

100 20 mm wooden beads straight from the ash tree in sunny Crimea in the Ukraine…That’s Shitsy!
