10 Weird Handbags for the Manly Man


I don't know about you, but I am involved with a woman. That, by definition means that whenever she and I go out together, I somehow end up holding her purse. I don't know what it is with women and their purses. My lady can't go anywhere without it, but then tries to dump it on me every chance she gets.

Waiting around the mall this weekend bored out of my mind, I realised that I really I should be able to do something to make it more fun for a man to hold a woman's purse. I mean, if we men are going to end up holding the darn thing, shouldn't it be something we can have more fun with or at least not be mortified to be seen with?

So here are my picks for the 10 HandBags A Real Man Can Carry: read more »

Have More Fun in the Bathroom


Having been through potty training twice already, I came across the Potty Bench with mild amusement. This potty bench looks hip with its cool colors and sleek design. Not only does it boast “two enclosed side storage spaces for organizing potty training supplies, and a pull-out drawer for easy sanitary clean-up," but it also has a "built-in toilet paper holder and a removable soft deflector shield." Close the lid and it becomes a stool that supports up to 300 pounds.

How To Burp The Best


Every so often I see a parenting scenario that I remember to tuck in my feeble mother memory bank. These situations end up usually as parenting lessons for me – ones that I must remember to do, or ones that I really need to remember NOT to do.

Ewaste Makes N+ew Seat


Sometimes when in search for something, such as the remote control, what you find instead: your lucky pair of frog socks, 2 dollars worth of quarters and an unexpectedly good poem you wrote several years ago, makes your search all worth while. Whether you find what you were looking for in the first place or not it feels good to know that your search still lead you to something more exciting and possibly more valuable. A few days ago my day kind of went like that.

Reading from the About My Planet online green news, I came across a strange and funny picture of a person dressed in a Selk Bag. A Selk Bag is a wearable sleeping bag. read more »

Use Your Head To Find Those Lost Remotes

Looking for a better approach to organizing remote controls, Ipods, cell phones and more?

Whether a hardcore audiophile or casual TV watcher, somehow, we still end up with way more remotes and portable handheld devices than we can handle. Inevitably, that many devices can only result in many valuable hours wasted searching for the lost and misplaced... but not if the Remote Wrangler has anything to do with it.

10 Ways to Silly Up Your Christmas

I want to be able to have fun for the holidays, and to me, doing the same exact thing I did last year is not a lot of fun.

For those who agree with me and want to spice up what you have been doing for year, I have collected together 10 Ways to Silly Up Your Christmas.

Wacky Product of the Week #10: Prick Pin


Hello Everybody!

Well, I think my wacky product find of the week is more funny than wacky, but it made me chuckle so I thought I would share it with you.

Merchant calls these the "people push pins". I thought with the pins where they were, its pretty clear they are not people like in men and women, but more like just men.  So I think my name for them is more accurate. Do you like the new name? What do you think of this product? Who would be perfect for this? (people pins here) read more »

Random Good Links: December 7, 2006


It's been a while and some of these may be a tiny bit stale, but here are some random good links I have seen around the web:

Nothing to do with Arbroath always has some funny stuff. From what they have this week, I like "How to be the perfect boyfriend" (video), which is kind of cute and oh so true.

I think this is a great way to tell people you think are stupid, that they are stupid. Read it at Backward Five.

Love cheese doodles? -Love Cheese Doodle Art ? from always good Unique Daily

Finnish video on how to dance disco via Utterly Boring . Weirdly fascinating. Like watching a car crash in slow motion.

Amazing Spy Cameras via Knuttz.net

Pitoche has cute illustrations on the eternal truth about men and women.

Attu has the National Toy Hall of Fame.

Davezilla has truly overdone movie cliches for cops and strippers.

Manny has the Pop Up Book of Sex.

The Best Weblogs List is out. I saw it here at Madville.

There's tons more great links out there, but I am short on time so I will post again soon. read more »

Wouldn't it be great if ... Commuting was Fun?


Do you ever get sick of sitting in traffic? Do you ever get frustrated with how rude drivers are?

 

Our Guest Blogger, Charley Sainsbury, has been an illustrator for over 30 years. He began long before the computer was available using paintbrush, pen, and airbrush. In 1988, Charley purchased his first Macintosh computer, learned all the software and found it upped his productivity. Charley loves creating the unimaginable. Check out his website, http://www.veritycreative.com/g3d/, for a few samples of his work. For our readers, Charley has come up with a very creative (maybe not so realistic) solution to this dilemma.

A picture says a thousand words. Here's Charley's picture and a few words. read more »

Jewelry That Helps Say "I HATE You"


Cat Claws RingsCat Claws Rings

Are you trying to figure out what would be the perfect gift for your girlfriend or wife?

You may be having some difficulty because although it's pretty obvious that they want expensive jewelry, your wallet is in denial.

The holidays are a great time to reflect on whether you REALLY want to be in a relationship with the woman currently in your life. There is nothing like the cold hard reality of having to plunk down lots on cold hard cash to buy jewelry for a woman you are not excited about to make you think seriously about dumping her.

If you want to dump her, it's usually a smart move to do it before you spend lots of money on her...unless of course, she gives great gifts. If she's a great gift giver, I have a better idea. read more »

Wacky Product of the Week #9 : Pooper Scooper Barbie


In the theme of poop that I somehow seem to have locked myself into, here's my pick for wacky product of the week: Barbie Doll and Tanner Scooper Dog Set.

Merchant for this product says "Finally, Barbie has a dog that eats and makes a mess! Tanner the dog is soft and fuzzy and her mouth, ears, head and tail really move! You can open Tanner dog's mouth and "feed" her dog biscuits. Comes with a dog bone and chew toys that Tanner can hold in her mouth, too. When Tanner has to go to the bathroom, Barbie doll cleans up with her special magnetic scooper and trash can. Posable Barbie doll included." (Doll here )

Well folks, what so you think of my find? Will you buy it for your favorite little girl? Can you think of a fun comment to title this? read more »

How to Have the Best Thanksgiving EVER!


Thanksgiving is such a predictable and tedious holiday. You cook and clean for days only to have everyone snarf down what took days to cook in about 10 seconds (and that's only if they chew slowly). Then, you sit around all groggy waiting for those annoying people you are somehow related to finally get out of your house and go on to theirs.

I think that Thanksgiving Day should be a lot more fun...a bit more of a surprise.

So, for my friends who are bored, I have collected together a few items that I think will turn any painfully tedious Thanksgiving Dinner into something people will remember for years. Here's my list of the 10 Things You Need to Have the Best Thanksgiving EVER: read more »
