So, being unemployed and basically worthless has one benefit: lots of time to seek out and explore the inane and incomprehensible. And being someone that loves skymall and other merchants of the ridiculous, yesterday was a huge day for me, as I disco
vered the “What On Earth” catalog.
Nearly every item there can be filed under “why would anyone ever buy this?” A few examples follow.
This is the “Behold Fartacus” tee shirt. It’s also available in a sweatshirt for a measly $32.95. Seriously, I can’t think of anyone that is so excited to display their own reputation for flatulence that they need a shirt (or sweatshirt) to let the world know.
This, like nearly all of the shirts in the What On Earth catalog also can be categorized under the tab of “Please don’t talk to- or come within close physical proximity to- me”. A few quick examples of the shirts in this category:
- I don’t even care about my own problems why should I care about yours?
- Yet despite the look on my face, you’re still talking.
- I can’t hear you. Old age has some benefits.
- I’ve stopped listening. Why haven’t you stopped talking?
A fabulous vintage image of a beaming housewife is the perfect reminder that even in the good old days, towels didn’t hang themselves up. A great nudge for the domestically challenged in your home.
Sounds like just the thing for Monday mornings, doesn’t it?
