all I want for Christmas is....earplugs

Now I know what the taste of barf sounds like.

Santa loves Hot Pockets

Thanks to Tim in Maple Leaf for this gem! The first time I watched it, I swear it made my computer smell like burned popcorn.

Wee-Wee Wish You A Merry Christmas

Another weird baby product just in time for the holidays! This is a cute way of dealing with an awkward situation, except that instead of magically transporting the pee to the north pole, your baby will just end up getting himself all wet!

Word to your Grandmother!

This is the dopest choir in the universe. Things really get jiggy around the 4:07 mark.

Secret Santa Can Suck It!

Over at Humor Bloggers there's a gift swap happenin' and my Secret Santa recipient is none other than http://debbiedoesdrivel.blogspot.com/. So, Debbie, what I've gotten you for Christmas this year is a Gothopotomus! This one is a late adolescent male so be tender with him.

Generally Gothopotomi like to hang around in a cold, dark basement--often alone, emerging only to feed. With the proper TLC they can mature into rather loving adults. I was recently on a trip to Crackistan where I visited the Cracknational Zoo and got a prime photo opportunity:

Here, as you can see, are a Gothopotomus adult couple. They are often satisfied sitting around on the cold, hard concrete smoking cloves. Contrary to popular belief, they can be a quite sociable species when surrounded by others like them. So Merry Christmas Debbie at http://debbiedoesdrivel.blogspot.com/! Put on some Cure, and enjoy your new pet!

runway the wrong way

This look obviously went over well on the catwalk...not. It's hard to tell if he's just escaped from an asylum, or an airplane with a faulty parachute. Either way I still don't get why he needs a pair of Ray Bans and an Amish beard to pull this look together.


This doll creeps me out. I find I don't really want to refer to it as a teddy bear, because I'm not entirely sure that it is one. It has a belly button and skin tone. I wonder what PETA would think of this doll. I've been watching all episodes of Arrested Development in order and couldn't help but think of Tobias and his term "Nevernude."

the skillz to pay the billz

1989. Wendy's. Employee training video...from hell.

And here's PART 2

Thursday, November 20, 2008


And now a word about what is seen on the "catwalks" of life's most hideous runway: Bad Cat Fashion. BCF is the preferred clothing trends of Crazy Cat Ladies (CCL). But what about the men, you ask? There must be Crazy Cat Men (CCM) alive and well co-existing in craziness. Perhaps it is time to speak of this sub-culture in terms of Crazy Cat People (CCP). The CCP of today are a progressive community which does not tuck their tails between their legs at gender biases! Please to enjoy...

sticky sweet

I didn't even know that you could get jam from a bean...but that's besides the point.

it costs extra to smile

think pink!

Thanks to Miss Stapleton in Seattle for sending this in. This is the cutest Breast Cancer Awareness ad I've ever seen!

a funny way to raise money

What's freakier than clowns? Naked ones! In an effort to help raise money for MS, you can purchase a 2009 calendar featuring photos of clowns in the buff. Strange concept connection, but raising money to support research for a disease which still has no cure is always worthwhile. Check out http://www.nakedclowncalendar.com/ for more info.

I thought it was only fair to show the flip side of the LEGO obsession. Instead of making fun of how minifigs are designed to look--here are rebellious humans attempting to dress up like LEGO minifigs.

I love the "deer in the headlights" dude in the background! There's even a D above his head. Diversion, Disruptive, Dodging, Dork...

I think dressing up as a LEGO minifig is a great way to get out of having to talk for the evening, and to look cool doing it.

Dressing up as a LEGO, however, is not cool and might get your ass kicked after school.

costumes that will get you noticed...by the cops

Strangely enough these costumes are not friendly fire but are in fact zombie android pot leaves sent out on the streets by the government in hopes of luring in naive hippies. The government also wants you to know that you can't get high from smoking these costumes.

This picture was actually taken sometime in August.

My personal feelings are: 1) This costume should be illegal in most states. 2) You should get some sort of ticket for wearing this. 3) There is most likely something fundamentally crazy about the people who want to wear this.

don't dress your baby up as...

Remember the platters of "babies as food?" Here's another delicacy I thought I'd warn you all about...

The poor little tyke looks really uncomfortable being squished into that copper pot that's being hauled over to the stove...what ever happened to parents dressing their baby up as a cute lobster that isn't about to be eaten?

I swear I had this same pair of legwarmers in 1984! Parents don't dress your baby up as a legwarmer...ever.

I don't even know what this is. A mail carrier from the Himalayas? Part of a Siegfried & Roy act?

the lowest budget in the world

Just where does one draw the line between Martian and Robot? Apparently some do not draw a line. I know this was truly meant to be an enticing album cover, but a few extra bucks put into props might have been a nice touch. If there are Martians out there it seems unlikely that they would need huge metal helmets with no face protection. This looks like somebody got their Aunt Hazel with her Noxzema face mask to pose in a broken air conditioning vent.

digital stimulation

So I'm not crazy about the design for this alarm clock. The way the cat is turned makes it seem like the window reading the time is located in it's "kitty zone." I wonder where the snooze button is? Never mind, I really don't want to know. Purrhaps this cat is just high on catnip--the time in the photo does read accordingly.

the old switcheroo

Welcome to the world of ManBabies.com! It's a photoblog that is a lot like that movie Freaky Friday...only freakier. The heads of men and their babies are swapped in the name of good fun and mediocre Photoshop skills.
This one flat-out makes me uncomfortable in a very real way.

baby with all the trimmings

Just a reminder to all parents out there that Halloween is coming. This is one of the most tasteless costumes I've ever seen for an infant. It's not at all the same thing as dressing your baby up as a lobster--this is dressing your baby up as a plate of lobster and garnish to be served as if to be eaten! Alternately, it looks like a plate of lobster giving birth to a human infant. Either way, it's enough to make Anne Geddes throw up a little in her mouth.

Oh, yeah...Thanksgiving is on it's way too.

well hung

What was this company thinking when they made this? I don't know if I could hang something on these without getting goosebumps. It actually says "Hug Me" at the top of the package!

LEGO no you di-in't!

"who's bad?" This reenactment of The King of Pop is pretty bad! For starters, the last time Michael Jackson had freckles, he had his original nose to display them on and we all know how long ago that was. They gave him fringey bangs and a cute little grin--hmm, he almost looks like a young boy. Ewww. On a positive note I thought the one white hand was a nice touch, and it's fitting to see Michael constructed out of plastic--art imitating life, no?

Where to begin? I get that it's tough to transcend the skintight pants look to minifig but why did they have to dress up Prince like Colonel Sanders? The head alone bears absolutely no resemblence to Prince. It sorta makes him look like a lesser character from the movie Tombstone. Kudos to using a comparison photo that shows the real Prince with totally different hair and clothing!

be my Penny Lane

This is just a reminder in case you hadn't noticed the "Follower" feature here at The Randumbot. If you browse off to the right you'll see all kinds of cool stuff, but the coolest of all is the chance to follow this blog. You can show your fanaticism by becoming a groupie and clicking on the "Follow This Blog" link. If you are shy, you can stay anonymous. If you like to wave a lighter back and forth over your head while you read, then that's cool too. Following helps attract more readers to The Randumbot and brings in more traffic and love. So help spread the love and become a groupie. Besides, all the cool kids are doing it.

LEGO my identity

Okay, so as cool as this is, I think the mark was missed a little. I'm all for capturing the face of a celebrity in LEGO form, but Louisa May Alcott is not the first name that comes to mind when I think celebrity. Besides, that looks an awful lot like LEGO Princess Leia who is shown here in her Imperial Members Only jacket. You cannot fool the Force.
Next we have the obvious choice for celebrity LEGOism: Elvis! The problem that I'm having with this design is that he looks a lot more like Johnny Cash on crystal meth.

riddle me this

For those of you who didn't know, the world of LEGO has transcended to video games and Hollywood. The latest video game from LEGO is Batman, and it is just as adorable as the Indiana Jones, and STAR WARS games before it. LEGO has even gone as far as commemorating entertainment figures in true plastic form to celebrate their 30 year anniversary.
Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt and their entourage.
The highly talented and curvaceous Amy Winehouse (they couldn't make a little LEGO crackpipe?)

babe in the city

Multifunctional chair concept. Sleek, modern design. Looks like a cured pig.
As cool of an idea this is for furniture, I can't help but think of pork. A stack of Bologna, Chinese BBQ pork, a Luau pig sans the apple...

records from around the world

I love strange and horrible album covers; even more so if they have really primitive stereotyped robot depictions!

Apparently most of the world makes their robots out of spare washing machine parts.

simply put

Saw this on CWC and it just made my morning.

life on the street

I admit, I am a puppet enthusiast, but this is just odd. If you've ever wanted a glimpse into Elmo's secret life outside of Sesame Street, then behold The Streets Of Sesame--a photo stream by Mark Sebastian (flickr). A quite candid look at the home life of a popular Muppet.
