Etsy is a great place to find hand-made folk and fine arts, but - as you'd expect pretty much anywhere that people can post things without supervision - sometimes the products are a bit...off the wall:
According to Regretsy, the home for horrible Etsy products, the squirrel-fish taxidermy above could be purchased for the low, low price of $350.00. I'll bet, if I comparison-shopped, I could buy a freakin' crate of non-fishy taxidermied squirrels, which I could then superglue fish heads on to. And I realize, well, if I am going through so much work to try and reproduce, en masse, the insane work of art above, I should probably just pay the guy $350.
SQUIRREL FOUND! "Johnny C" over at A Hole In The Head had this on his fridge for a while, after meeting the creator, an underground comic artist. The webpage has a version big enough to print out and spread around your own little bubble of the world.
I'm smitten with AT&T's Valentine's Day ad -- not so much for the phones (I don't even think we get that service here, bastards), but as we all know, I'm a sucker for a puppet show. I partially married hubby for his puppet skills, and if that makes him The Puppet Master and myself the puppet, well, I can live with that.
In the commercial a red boy mouse finger puppet hits on a blue girl squirrel finger puppet:
Mouse: You know what I think? Squirrel: What? Mouse: Heaven must be missing a squirrel.
Ms Squirrel laughs, but you know she falls for it. Just as I have.
AT&T needs to sell me these finger puppets.
Are you listening, AT&T? I don't want an iPhone. Especially as I don't have service for it here. But even if I could, I'd still want those adorable finger puppets more.
I guess this whole post makes me AT&T's puppet, posting their ad like that... Unless they make me the puppets. Then I am The Puppet Master.
