The Economy is doing fine…


If Americans are willing to shell out ten bucks for this kind of thing.

Got fur balls?Are your favorite sweaters covered with cat hair? Do you love to make quirky and one-of-a-kind crafting projects? If so, then it’s time to throw away your lint roller and curl up with your kitty! Crafting with Cat Hair shows readers how to transform stray clumps of fur into soft and adorable handicrafts. From kitty tote bags and finger puppets to fluffy cat toys, picture frames, and more, these projects are cat-friendly, eco-friendly, and require no special equipment or training. You can make most of these projects in under an hour—with a little help, of course, from your feline friends!

When I saw this, I thought it was from The Onion of something; it’s not.  It’s a real book.  And apparently real people buy it.  Then I saw the rest of the choices including:

Knitting with Dog Hair

The Enchanting World of Cat Wigs

And the ever-popular Knit Your Own Cat which, of course, is required once the real cats run from your Kitty-Asylum home as fast as they can.

Oh it gets better.  Really.

There’s Dancing with Cats and the new but popular trend of Catflexing.  Steve Martin would be proud.  Yes, Amazon has everything for everyone.  Then I found these real books Vanagram’s select titles with excerpts:

You can get Color My Boobs for only $9.99  “A fun, interactive gift book, this coloring book is filled with every variety of alluring, healthy, happy female pulchritude: big, bigger, buxom, cantaloupes, torpedos, milk jugs, side boob, underboob, and much more. Showcasing the work of two talented artists, these line drawings also feature character boobs: a showgirl, pirate, cheerleader, goddess, hot teacher and much more.”  Crayons not included.

Or my favorite called A Practical Guide to Racism, also for around $10:  Meet C. H. Dalton, a professor of racialist studies and an expert on inferior people of all ethnicities, genders, religions, and sexual preferences. Presenting evidence that everyone should be hated, A Practical Guide to Racism contains sparkling bits of wisdom on such subjects as:

· The good life enjoyed by blacks, who shuffle through life unhindered by the white man’s burdens, to become accomplished athletes, rhyme smiths, and dominoes champions
· The sad story of the industrious, intelligent Jews, whose entire reputation is sullied by their taste for the blood of Christian babies
· A close look at the bizarre, sweet-smelling race known as “women”,  who are not very good at anything–especially ruling the free world
· A crucial manual to Arabs, a people so sensitive they are liable to blow up at any time. Literally.

Including a comprehensive glossary of timeless epithets, with hundreds of pejorative words for everyone from Phoenicians to Jews, A Practical Guide to Racism is an essential field guide for our multicultural world.

This Christmas = Amazon Gift Cards for everyone.

        I never put 2 & 2 together before to figure out that an asshat was someone with their head head up their ass secured in their posterior. Thanks, Brundawg. I never would have noticed the connection. Duh. Now, I feel like a dipstick.

    I think I want the “color my boobs” book, but only if it has color pictures and is in pop-up format.
