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.

Valentine, Nebraska. Pop: 2,650. Beginning more than a year ago, some man has been skipping from one business to another at night, pressing his naked behind — sometimes his groin, sometimes both — on windows. Store owners, church workers and school janitors have had to wash lotion and petroleum jelly off the windows he selects. During one particularly brazen session, virtually all the windows at a local hotel were imprinted. Police Chief Ben McBride said no one has reported seeing the vandal in action. The only clue is a blurry picture of him caught by a surveillance camera at the middle school last year.
The man was 6-feet-tall or slightly taller, and slender. He had a dark complexion, and McBride said the man's dark hair was styled in a "1980s, feathered look." Uh, the hair on his head, right?


The young owner of a chocolate shop in Berlin was arrested for selling drugs, as well as drug-laced candies and confections to the public. Police confiscated 120 pieces of magic mushroom chocolate, 70 sachets filled with assorted drugs, 20 joints, jars of drug-laced honey, and tons of lollipops made with cannabis. Hmmm...sugar and hallucinogens...reminds me of a game I used to play years ago...

worry-free pet

For those of you who love the idea of having a pet but in reality can barely take care of yourself on a daily basis: Koi Toy light up plastic goldfish with LED and 40 hour battery will float and look fairly realistic from across the room...until it starts glowing color-changing light. $11 from ZGallerie.

What's it gonna take to get your baby into this streamlined onesie? This is a great design if you are trying to prep your kid to be a used car salesman. Gives new meaning to the term "fully loaded package!"

Peel off adhesive and stick Subtle Butt onto the inside of your underwear or pants, exactly where you think it goes.
Go for it, Let'er rip, Have at it, Cut loose, Break wind, Gas it up

You want all the gas to pass through Subtle Butt. So do what you need to do to ensure none sneaks around the edges.
Subtle Butt can be applied to thongs by wrapping and securing it around the back.
