Spell Check Please


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.

Grass Armchair


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


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:


when you can have this:



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.

The Amazing Banana Slicer!

HUGE shout-out to The Room Mom for finding this awesome gadget on Pinterest and  sending it to me to post about! Without further ado, I present to you the amazing Banana Slicer!!!

Have you ever chopped bananas up for a nice fruit salad for your backyard bbq and worried that you just may insult your guests and lose friends due to your uneven banana slices? I personally haven’t, because my friends are much more concerned with how cold the beer is in the cooler. However, there are some highly anal retentive people in the world that can’t take the strain of having imperfect banana slices thrust upon their plates…and for them comes this oh-so-amazing product!

Take a gander at the ridiculousness of this thing. Obviously that picture is just the product being used as a protective banana cage of some sort. (OMG – They totally missed out on a dual-marketing opportunity there!) This would undoubtedly keep it safe from the predators that roam your home! However, to actually  use it, you would have to turn it upside down and push the frigging banana through the slicer. Nobody wants perfect banana slices with finger pressings all over it. It will get all bruised up! Then the bruises will turn black, and before you know it your “friends” will be telling everyone in town what a crappy bbq you threw. Great…

Anyway…it is posted on Amazon for $5.49 and may contain some of the funniest/most sarcastic review comments I have ever seen. Here are a few of my favorites:

*For decades I have been trying to come up with an ideal way to slice a banana. “Use a knife!” they say. Well…my parole officer won’t allow me to be around knives. Then, after a fit of banana-induced rage, my parole officer introduced me to this kitchen marvel and my life was changed!

*I found myself in between a rock and some creatures lake when I saw something gold glint on the lake shore. I picked it up and a Victoria Kitchen 571B Banana Slicer came out of the dirt. No sooner did I hear Gollum scream “why can’t we cuts the banana straight!”. I hid the banana slicer and narrowly escaped. I’ve grown obsessed with it. Everyone wants it but it’s MINE! 

*No longer do I have to get out a ruler to make sure I slice the banana in to equal pieces. Every time I am a centimeter off I would have to throw away the whole banana and start over! I spent an average of $1.00 a week on banana because of this. Thanks to this amazing invention I can save so much time and money now!

*I was thinking that this device is beneficial to EVERYONE with only one exception…Chuck Norris! I mean, duh, everyone knows that when Chuck Norris looks at a banana, it peels and slices itself!!!

There’s pages upon pages more of these comments and you can check them out here, if you’ve got some spare time on your hands and need a chuckle!

Again, thank you The Room Mom for enlightening the rest of us to the greatness of the Banana Slicer! I don’t know how we have possibly made it this far in life without it! Be sure to check her blog out! It’s full of ideas for parents and teachers…and no I have never featured her on my blog for special attention ridicule! I actually really like her ideas!

Banana Slicer, although you just may have some of the funniest reviews ever posted on Amazon.com, I still must dub thee Unpinteresting. Just use a knife you lazy bitches!

PS – If you ever come across something great like this, feel free to send it my way at oyestheydid@gmail.com. If I use it, I promise to give you the proper shout out that you deserve! Outstanding Obits are always especially welcomed!

New Year’s Eve Table Settings…Unpinteresting!

Look at what I found on Pinterest today…an idea for New Year’s Eve Table Settings made with dollar store clocks. I do not like this at all. First of all, this would have to be done at the most calm NYE party ever. Most people get stinking drunk on NYE. How are a bunch of your drunk friends going to be able to balance their plates on a clock when they eat? It’s not going to work out. Plates are going to slide around and that nice white tablecloth is going to be all stained up about 5 minutes into the meal. Plus dollar store clocks tick loudly. Who wants to listen to “tick…tick…tick” the entire time they’re eating? You know they would all tick at different times…”tickticktick”. NO!  If I was there, I would be staring at the clock trying to figure out how much longer I have to sit there before I can ditch and go somewhere that people are actually having fun.  What does the hostess do with all of these clocks when dinner is over? Give them to her guests as parting gifts? Me no likey.

New Year’s Eve Table Settings with Dollar Store clocks…I dub thee Unpinteresting!
