Lighten Up! - Rated PG-13, but quite a side-buster

Gosh I love regretsy.

Just a warning though it is about a home-made feminine hygiene product.

The ad was funny enough, but the comments got me laughing so hard, I think I hurt myself. I got such a stitch in my side I had to stop reading to catch my breath.

I love Regretsy! That and CakeWrecks are two of my favorites (although I admit that I haven't been to CakeWrecks in a while because, well...even the ugliest cake still looks at least a little delicious).

"Zesty Cooter Marinade" is one of the best three-word phrases ever. I'm bookmarking this page to show to my husband. I'll bet five bucks he makes a joke about Zatarain's Crab Boil spice packs.

Thanks for pointing that one out! I'm trying to laugh quietly and not disturb the cat now. :D

Edited to add: Scroll down to that magnificent Maria Schriver/Arnold Schwarzenegger vase if you haven't already. It "represents their four children symbolically as horses" on the back. I. Am. Dazzled!

I think it was Hillbilly Bajingo Wash that did me in. My side hurts just thinking about it.

I did laugh at the Schwarzenegger vase.

Also, the polymer clay portraits are a real hoot too. No matter how bad the person looks in the photo, the artist is somehow able to make them look uglier in the pc portrait. I almost want one. I think it would make me feel prettier (at least I could point out to visitors "Hey, at least I don't look THAT bad).

<blush> . . . I just expanded my vocabulary, and I used to think that Eskimos had 39 words for snow.

Oh my yes! The polymer clay portraits are outstanding! I don't just almost want one, I definitely want one. I don't know, there's just something about heartfelt kitsch that just fills me with inexpressible glee--and not just in the ironic way. I just freakin' love it all. :D

I would take the "Painter of Pancakes (" Dan Lacey over the "painter of light" guy any day of the week.

Bill--will you ever look at potpourri the same way again? I don't think I will.

How did I not know about Regretsy before now? Oh my word!

Just like when I first discovered - I think I'm going to be laughing for hours as I go through the archives . . . .

Ok, scarier than the ad - is the fact that it sold (for $10 plus $5.50 shipping).

I sure hope it's for a gag gift.

... nothing like paying to get a bacterial or yeast infection (not to mention the minty tingle).

LOL! I used to work for the local newspaper. Once in a while we'd have to go search the archives for info. We had archives that date from about 1870 to present. The ads are hilarious. Feminine hygiene, male enhancement, headache cures, mood cures, get pregnant, don't get pregnant, lift the girls, sexy night wear, girdles, bras, "stand up socks and briefs, it's all there.

A lot of fun to go back and look at it. Regetsry has nothing on old newspaper ads! *grins*

Seeing people selling haunted and magic items give me the creeps.

I once sold a doll on ebay, making sarcastic fun of haunted dolls. It was a "water baby" doll and when I tried to change her water this bloody looking fluid poured out of her back (it scared the bejeebus out of me, because it looked so much like clotted blood).

As it turns out, it's a common water fungus. But as a joke I put her on ebay explaining the frightful experience I had gotten (but that I couldn't guarantee that there was any remaining fungus in the doll, if they were intending to use it to scare someome else).

I started the bidding at 75 cents

The woman who bought it, informed me that she knew for a fact that the doll was haunted because she asked the doll to let her win the auction only if she was truly haunted.

There were only two bidders (I was actually surprised that there was more than zero) and the woman won the auction for $1.25.

I suppose one explanation is the doll was haunted, and the other was that she was the only woman willing to pay $1.25 for a fungus-filled doll.

Call me a skeptic, but somehow I think the latter is the more likely explanation.

Thanks for the laugh, what a great site.
