What's that smell? It's new, it's you, it's GLUE!

Some of these scents I can understand, but GLUE?

Oh, I just went back to the page and noticed they have another scent:
"Sushi". There just aren't enough ways to say EWWWWW.

You have GOT to be kidding me!

Here's the latest piece of proof that the fashion industry is just having us all on.
Pictured to the left is the Tribute Patchwork Bag from Louis Vuitton. It is made from 15 cut up LV bags, and retails for somewhere between $42,000 and $45,000. Not kidding. At all. Not funny. At all.

This is, by far, the ugliest piece of "fashion" that I have ever seen. And I watch Project Runway.

It's not only ugly on a visual level, but in my eyes, on a moral level. That kind of money could probably feed a small family for a year, and some rich "person" is going to carry it ONCE, and then put it into the closet, next to the hundreds of other purses they never use. Also, it just serves to perpetuate the fashion industry's hold on what they can get away with. This bag says they can get away with anything, and sell anything, and that some poor (rich) deluded sucker will pay them through the nose to insult our collective common sense.
I'm not against fashion, just against the people who are so stupid that they not only fall for a bad, cruel joke that is getting played on them, but they pay anything they are told to, to have that joke played on them.

There is no possible way I can improve on this.

But it might need a little explanation. Hell Pizza is a chain of restaurants in New Zealand, where they don't take things quite so seriously as we do.

And, yes, there have been the completely expected adverse reactions to this advert.

Some people just can't take a joke.

I eat meat. I like meat. I like eating meat. But....
This image could just turn me vegetarian.

It reminds me of Douglas Adams' Arcturain Mega Cow, from the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, who is bred not only to enjoy being eaten, but with the ability to say so, clearly and distinctly.


Now about that turning vegetarian.....

One more failed coin experiment

So the mint has announced that we are going to get new one dollar coins, four released each year, to honor every one of our presidents. Now, I'm as big a fan of William Henry Harrison "I lasted thirty days" as the next guy, and I actually look forward to using these things, but until we get hip with the rest of the world and actually replace our paper dollars with coins, it is an experiment doomed to failure. Canada and Australia released their one dollar coins and within a very short time withdrew all of their paper singles. Heck, the Canadians even released a two dollar coin, but I'm not sure if they have withdrawn their two dollar bills. I'm sure that part of the decision to do this is to fuel the Obsessive Compulsive Disorder of many Americans, tens of thousands of whom will keep at least 43 of these coins out of circulation in their coin collections. Would somebody please explain to me how keeping coins out of circulation helps the economy? Is this the only way to get Americans to have savings? But really, the main reason to issue these coins is to appease the poor, deluded Ronald Reagan worshipers, who I am sure will collect thousands of his coins in honor of the guy who they feel personally, single handedly won the cold war. At least maybe this will derail their attempt to replace the Roosevelt dime with the Reagan dime. They refer to FDR as "the communist". Honestly, they do. One potential drawback, should the dollar bill be withdrawn, would be the potential impact on the stripper economy. Then again, if two dollar bills are kept in circulation, it means a dramatic raise for the hard working stripper industry. I'm sorry I just said that. Adios for now.
