10 Ways to Silly Up Your Christmas

I know that Christmas is all about traditions but I am finding the traditions to be a bit boring. I mean, does it always have to be the same? Same tree, same lights, same food....arrrgh! 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 »

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 »

Wacky Product of the Week #7 : ADD YOUR COMMENTS


Hey Folks:

I seem to have poultry on my mind this week.

So , since I could not find the perfect wacky product with a turkey theme to celebrate Thanksgiving with you, I decided that this is close enough since it has feathers.

My wacky product of the week is a Chicken in a Bag Purse. The merchant for this product says "one of the traditions for the chinese new year is to sacrifice a whole chicken, usually brought to the temple in a paper bag. for those who prefer less mess, this innovative bag has a chicken-- or a rooster, rather-- built right into it. ... the chicken is double-sided and is designed to expand when things are put into the bag."(Purse )

Well, is this something you or your lady would buy? Do you like the idea? What do you think? I am thinking my wife would kill me if I came home with this. Someone please say something funny and make us all laugh... read more »
