Things that just make me scratch my head in wonder

At a recent doctor's visit I saw this thing hanging on the wall. Do you know what it is?

Give up? It is a cast made of a pregnant woman's belly. Am I the only one that thinks this is a little crazy? For 75 buckaroos you can have your swollen, stretch-marked belly with your navel about ready to pop, cast in plaster-of-Paris and saved for posterity!

Hang it in the baby's room! Point to it as a reminder EVERY DAY how you carried the little varmint, how you suffered, your back hurt, you had heart burn, etc. Really give them the case of the guilts.

AND, as a BONUS...

Keep it in their room even in their teenage years as a reminder of how misshapen their bodies can get if they don't practice safe sex!


For those of you who brag about having a green thumb. Now you literally can have one.

For a price.

How about wearing this ring on your thumb?

Yes, that is a live plant growing inside the ring. It is one of the many
growing jewelry designed by Hafsteinn Juliusson, an Icelandic jeweler.

Or maybe this necklace is more to your liking.

In either case, be ready to fork over a lot of money, or kronur. The necklace goes for $189. Yeah, that's a lot for a tiny plant you're going to kill in a matter of days.

Do you still have some Barbie dolls lying around and you don't know what to do with them? How about making them into a jewelry holder?

The legs are still movable and are attached to a nice wooden tray. It's available through Etsy.

For some reason I was oddly attracted to this piece. I think because it reminds me of an old silver ashtray we had when I was young.

I wish I would have kept some of my old Barbie dolls. I could have made some money in my old age. Even the old Ken dolls would have worked, too, since we all know that he was NOT anatomically correct!


You know, I was always told that it was wrong to feed your dog table food.

But I know many people do. They can't help slipping the dog a little something while the family is gathered around the table eating dinner and he's looking at you with his big puppy dog eyes, just begging for a scrap.

I get it.

What's it going to hurt?

Other people are very strict and don't EVER give their dogs ANY table food. In fact, the dog is not even allowed in the kitchen while they are eating.

So you have one end of the spectrum, and one in the middle. This one is completely at the other end.

Well, hell, why not just invite the dog to eat with you?

Is it just me, or is this idea totally off the wall? I believe in loving your pets and all, but I think this is taking it a step too far.

I wonder what Cesar Millan, the Dog Whisperer, would say.

No wait. I KNOW what he'd say.

He'd whisper, "You are nucking futs!"
