Ho, Ho, Ho, Holy Shit Christmas Vintage Advertising of Yesterday

American Cyanamid Co - 19491224 Post

In the wake of the Black Friday cavalcade (as well as the fact I have to get up incredibly early to work a 10 hour shift starting at 6 a. m., don’t ask for I’m not looking forward to it), it’s no surprise that every family in the United States is receiving a shit load of Christmas shopping ads in their newspapers. Let’s face it, once Halloween is over, chances are, you’re going to find Christmas advertising everywhere. And even in the stores, you can hear Christmas songs coming from the speakers non-stop as well as on some of the radio stations. Nevertheless, Christmas advertising has always been a holiday tradition in America since, well, longer than we’d like to admit. Still, while we tend to have some nostalgia for the ads we imagine as wholesome and family friendly, there are some ads that haven’t really aged well. And some of them may even contain a few disturbing implications as well as be unintentionally dirty and funny. I could go on and on about the nicer cutesy ads but chances are you’d be more inclined for the demented ones. So without further adieu, here are some of the most messed up vintage ads for your viewing pleasure.

1. “Every B. V. D. garment must satisfy completely” in threesomes.

I know this is an underwear ad but these two guys seem to be oddly happy for some reason. And I don't think it has anything to do with the packages.

I know this is an underwear ad but these two guys seem to be oddly happy for some reason. And I don’t think it has anything to do with the packages. Still, since its the 1950s, she’s totally not going to bed with both of them. Yeah right.

2. For the kids, Santa brings their very own toy multi-clip machine gun?

Yeah, I'm sure every young kid wants their very own toy machine gun for Christmas. Did Santa try to make sure that their parents weren't part of some pacifist religion first? Still, I hope this ad wasn't out during a time of war.

3. Sad that your sister’s boyfriend doesn’t see her anymore, then Santa thinks she must have bad breath.

Let's dissect the situation: 1.    Dan leaves Big Sis.  He won’t say why.  He just vanishes, leaving Big Sis a sniveling shell of her former self. 2.    Big Sis’ loneliness and inner anguish is so palpable it prompts Little Sis to go to Santa for help.  3.   Santa tells the child it’s all about her sister’s nauseating dragon breath.  He says to get her to the dentist to quell the disgusting stench.  4.   The dentist tells Big Sis that she’s got ass breath, and may actually need to brush her teeth on occasion.   She does, and the shallowest boyfriend in history returns. Talk about Santa and Dan being selfish assholes.

4. Make this Christmas “the best ever” for every boy. Give them a gun.

Seriously, real firearms make terrible Christmas gifts for children. I'm not sure  if puppies are any better. Still, better to give your son a Rough Ridge BB Bun than anything that could actually kill people. Worst thing he could do with a BB Gun is shoot his eye out.

5. Good, golly, look what Santa brought for Christmas! Hand shoes!

Either that, or Susie can finally attempt a new trick she learned from gymnastics. Still, the way the girl has those slippers on her hands is kind of disturbing.

6. Bicycles: the best gift for any Christmas.

This girl is probably thinking: "The sooner Dalton starts riding this bicycle, the sooner I get his money. Nah-ha, ha, ha!" Yes, I don't think this girl is up to any good and almost seems like she wants to strangle the guy in the chair.

7. Buster Brown Shoes: The gift that insures shapely, healthy feet-for life. Can’t say much about the guy’s face.

Seriously, what's with the guy's face? Looks like as if he's been hit by some horse cart a few years back. Of course, it's a shame his parents can't afford to get him some plastic restoration surgery.

8. For Christmas-give her leisure-with a vacuum cleaner.

No way in hell would I consider a getting a vacuum leisure on my part. Rather it's just a mechanism used to clean floors that make a lot of noise you can't get away from. God, if I got one, the one who gave it to me will be sent to the ER.

9. Santa Claus’s daughter gets the best time of all from her father.

Wait a minute, Santa Claus has a daughter? I thought he and Mrs. Claus never had any kids. Still, how would Santa's kids ever have a normal life? How would Santa manage to give gifts to all the girls and boys as well as make it to all to those PTA meetings?

10. Give her the gift of stockings and she’ll give you a moment of exhibitionism.

Man, seems like Santa is watching this woman trying on her new stockings. So is the old guy peeking from the door. Basically this ad is saying that all men are perverts. Even Santa Claus.

11. Get Dove Skin Undies so she could pass out Christmas presents in her underwear.

Dove: putting good looking models in their underwear ads before Victoria's Secret. Still, you have to hand it to Dove that they have the guts to put their models in granny panties.

12. Since Santa got his new Paris belt, he’s been on vacation and screwing blond chicks.

Yeah, I'm sure I'd find an old guy with a long white beard sexy, especially with a the blond chick next to him who certainly isn't Mrs. Claus. Also, why is Santa smoking a big cigar in the plastic rimmed glasses?

13. Use this Shower Massage by Water Pik or else Santa might kill you.

Hey, I used one of those shower heads for years until perhaps a few years ago. It's been replaced but I'm sure my parents still have it. Still, is Santa naked in this? Now that's what I don't want to see!

14. “Don’t do it Santa, for God’s sake! Don’t blow yourself up with a blunderbuss!”

Seriously, I'm sure reading Christmas letters may cause Santa a lot of stress. But why depict him in an ad for men's shirt showing him wanting to shoot himself? I'm sure a guy would want a shit for Christmas. Yeah, right.

15. Watch your kids opening their presents, in spandex underwear?

Don't get me wrong, the guy has a nice body. Still, he seems to have a creepy expression on his face, which suggests ill intent. And I don't think those undies are helping him.

Don’t get me wrong, the guy has a nice body. Still, he seems to have a creepy expression on his face, which suggests ill intent. And I don’t think those undies are helping him. At least the authorities have been notified.

16. Beat the Christmas holiday rush, get a tombstone.

Because if you think this might be your last Christmas, why don't you just save your family the financial trouble? Still, I know why a tombstone company might want to advertise during Christmas. January is well known as a great month for the funeral business.

17. Celebrate Christmas like our ancestors did, with a flaming wheel.

Now this ad reminds me less of any Christmas carols and more of the Bob Dylan song, "This Wheel's on Fire," with:  "This wheel’s on fire Rolling down the road Best notify my next of kin This wheel shall explode!"

18. Don’t look now, but Santa seems hungry for human flesh and is covering the neighborhood with Christmas lights.

Yes, yes, run from Santa. He needs your soft flesh to nourish him. Run away from those giant strings of Christmas lights. It's a trap. Run, run for your lives.

19. Use 7 Up to pack the punch for your Christmas party.

Now I'm sure the guy is certainly too old for the girl in this. And I'm not sure if she's a teenager or not. Still, hope that the punch isn't alcoholic because I don't have a good feeling about this. I mean I could hear, "Baby It's Cold Outside," looking at this ad.

20. May all your Alcoa products not only be useful in your home and hobbies but also double as sex toys.

Don't look now but I think things are about to get kinky with the iron and the drill. Sure they may have unusual ways of keeping the spark alive but as Pope Francis said, who are we to judge?

21. Give a great gift for this Christmas, a set of silk satin one piece pajamas.

Now while these clothes are promoted as pajamas in this ad, they seem to be outfits you'd see Lady Gaga wear during one of her concerts. This is especially with the one with the puffy sleeves and the butterfly.

22. Give the gift every sportsman wants for Christmas, a gun.

Yeah, I'm sure a gun would make a great Christmas gift. What the fuck am I saying? Of course, it doesn't! For God's sake, as Christmas gifts, guns are worse than puppies! Jesus Christ, why?

23. To make it merry, make it Mojud, whatever that is.

Okay, looks like Santa has just picked up some high class hooker in his sleigh as a Christmas present for himself after spending one busy night delivering presents for the good boys and girls. Bad, bad, Santa. Naughty Santa. How dare you cheat on Mrs. Claus!

24. Make Christmas from the Chess King with a Santa dressed girl on his side and his sleigh being pulled by a couple of pegacorns.

Now this resembles nothing more than a cheesy hair band Christmas album cover from the 1980s or some fantasy Christmas Harlequin romance novel cover. Still, couldn't resist including this one since it's just so 1980s cheesy.

25. Seems like Santa approves of these women’s pants, so get them.

I don't know about you, but is Santa checking these women out for some reason? Also, I don't think he's looking at their legs. What a perv.

I don’t know about you, but is Santa checking these women out for some reason? Also, I don’t think he’s looking at their legs. What a perv. And this from Macy’s good God. I work there.

26. Even Mrs. Claus wants a new ironing table, which Santa will get her.

Wait a minute, that's Mrs. Claus? Isn't she supposed to be a more chunky old lady like Santa? Then again, this woman may be known as the "second Mrs. Claus" who Santa ditched the first one for. Poor woman. Still, I don't like the look on his face in this ad. Guess the wife owes him something more of the carnal variety.

27. To merry people everywhere, drink Pepsi because Coke is for losers.

Since Marjorie couldn't stand the feel of those ugly Christmas sweaters for the ugly holiday sweater party at his folks house, Jerry decided to give her one of the most hideous holiday lady hats he could find. And yes, that Christmas tree hat is dreadful.

28. “And please, Santa, give Mommy a Hoover.”

I don't know about you but I suspect something sketchy about this Santa Claus. I mean he seems more like he's about to burst into a homicidal rampage than give presents to kids.

29. Buy a scale which is a beautiful way of saying “Merry Christmas.”

Seriously, all that giving your loved one a scale for Christmas is like a covert way of saying, "You're fat." Let's just say nobody wants to get a scale for Christmas. Not ever. For Christ's sake, what the fuck?

30. Get one of those Everready flashlights so Santa can see the kiddies while they’re sleeping.

Now I don't know about you but this ad tends to make the idea of Santa with a flashlight quite terrifying. This is especially so since he's holding it near his crotch.

31. Of course, Santa is real and we are all his puppets.

This is an ad for Weatherman's Fountain Pen. Still, it's pretty disturbing having all those people connected to Santa through wires on their bodies. So Santa is the ultimate puppetmeister.

32. Instead of leaving milk with those cookies for Santa, why don’t you just give him a bottle of Jack Daniels?

Of course, this ad may explain why some young girls received a jockstrap for Christmas and why some boys got a set of cosmetics by Estee Lauder. Yes, Santa was drunk off his ass on Christmas Eve so he sometimes doesn't get the list demands straight.

33. Whenever Santa Claus makes his visits, he usually smokes Lucky Strikes.

Sure you may have to be good to get presents from Santa, this doesn't mean Santa Claus has to be a great role model. Still, Lucky Strikes were known not to contain filters as well as give you lungs full of tar and an early death.

34. Nothing says Christmas like boys playing with trains in their underwear.

I don't know about you but are there anything skeevy about this. My God, this is sick.  Only weird boys played with toy trains in their undies whether they be boxers or tidy whiteys.

35. Santa says that Pall Mall cigarettes guard against throat scratch.

Yes, but side effects include yellow skin, yellow teeth, cancer, emphysema, COPD, cardiovascular disease, and early death. Also, bad, bad, Santa.

36. An Apple computer allows Santa and his elves handle the list much easier.

Now I don't know about you but Santa kind of terrifies me in this one with his large eyes of death staring at the elves. Also, those elves kind of look like creepy lawn ornaments.

37. Give your loved one a pair of good ol’ reliable Golden Boots.

Is that supposed to be Santa or some kind of mythological fur covered Sasquatch hybrid. Or perhaps he's some kind of mountain man who's been up in the woods far too long. Either way, that guy is sure to haunt my dreams.

38. Don’t forget to decorate the outside of your house with Noma Lights.

I don't know about you but that happy kid in the Santa suit seems like he's about to use one of those lights to blow up your house. And he doesn't seem to have any remorse for it.

39. Spoon tree decorations, now I haven’t seen that before.

If I went to a house where I found a Christmas tree covered with silver spoons, I'd think is this person on drugs? or I wonder what nuthouse these people came from.

40. Fellas, get a Gem Razor and Blades for your face and your girlfriend will let you stare at her large boobs for as long as you like.

Sure she's looking at his handsome face while he's staring at her well endowed bosom. Guess this fellow is getting laid tonight.

41. For your kids, get them a set of Christmas Morning Hero Underoos.

I don't know about you but I don't think having kids in their underwear pose with Santa is entirely appropriate. Seriously, who the hell thought that this photo op was a good idea?

42. Make Budweiser the beer to drink for this holiday season.

I'm sure this night will soon to degenerate with, "I really can't stay." "But, baby, is cold outside." "I got to go home." "But, baby, it's cold outside." I guess you can figure it out from there.

43. Make this Christmas the happiest for your family with color TV.

Because why have those creepy clowns give you nightmares in black and white while they can scare the bejesus out of you in color? Like in the circus.

44. Hey, look, here’s Santa Claus drinking a bottle of Coca Cola with his sidekick Sprite Boy.

Now Sprite Boy was this bottle cap wearing goddamn evil albino child who's clearly asking you, the viewer to be complicit in the murder of Santa Claus  by not warning him of the demon awaiting in the darkness behind. That demon? Diabetus.

45. So you see, kids, this Zippo lighter always works as well would make a perfect present for your chain smoking dad.

I'm sure demonstrating a cigarette lighter in front of the kids is a perfectly good idea. I'm the children won't be getting ideas about setting their house on fire. Yeah right.

46. Share your home movies with this Revere movie projector.

"This is the part where I murdered our neighbor Bobby for being an asshole and not returning my tools. Let's just say, I whacked him on the head with the shovel, dismembered is body, and spread his parts all over the lawn so his dogs might eat it. And my wife, Helen filmed the whole thing. It's great family fun."

47. Whenever Santa goes on his sleigh, he always has a sack full of Boswell’s Ale and Porter.

I don't know about you but it seems that Santa Claus might have some alcohol dependency issues. I mean he has a sack full of booze and I know you can't give children that.

48. O-o-oh, Santa, I just love that Micosheen shine!

I’ll have Cracked explain this situation, “There are three possible scenarios on display here:
1. Santa is so scandalized that he took his own life rather than endure another moment of gazing at the demon breasts. 2. The woman is extremely turned on by crime scenes and snuck into Santa’s suicide to rub one out. 3. Santa is so sexually jaded that the only way he can get off is to watch a woman satisfy herself with gargantuan, ornate cast-iron dildos while he practices autoerotic asphyxiation.” Still, how could anyone ever explain the situation to the Mrs. Claus? And yes, the ad is pixelated on the company’s website. Guess that woman’s see through nightie has a habit of getting men in red suits too excited for some reason. And this one is from 1956.

49. Wake up your husband Christmas morning with a Klaxon.

I know that whatever's under the covers is supposed to be feet. Yet, I can't help but wonder if the Klaxon horn could also be used to stop erections at inappropriate moments.

50. Cigarettes: a great gift for every adult on your Christmas list.

Yes, why keep all the tobacco related health problems to yourself while you can pass it onto all your friends in the car as well as your black driver's who's been asking you for a raise for months?

51. An extension phone saves you everyday effort so you can enjoy the holiday fun.

"I don't think I have the time to hide the body with you today, Dolores. But I'm sure we can dump your brother Phil in the dumpster next Saturday. Tommy wants to take the kids Christmas shopping that day so I'll have the place to myself."

52. Isn’t that special? Bing Crosby trims a “Friendship Tree.”

Of course, Bing Crosby is also known to be one of the shittiest parents in Hollywood said to be cold, cruel, remote as well as physically and emotionally abusive to his four sons from his first marriage (this is disputed within his own family though). Also, left them out of getting any money until they reached 65.

53. Help yourself to good taste with Budweiser.

Hey, I didn't know that Santa Claus was quite the chef in the North Pole kitchen. Always thought Mrs. Claus did the cooking and she mostly made cookies like you'd expect.

54. Bless your hearth by putting Necco in your kids’ stockings.

Look, I put this candy among the items trick or treaters don't want to get for Halloween. So if your child doesn't like to receive Neccos in his Halloween treat bag, then he wouldn't want one in his Christmas stocking.

55. Get these Atkins saws so you may cut a cow’s head off.

Seriously, what's the deal with putting cows in an ad for a saw? It makes who ever receives the saw seem psychotic. Still, if any child receives this, then he's bound to kill animals and you want your brat to have the best, don't you?

56. These Christmas decorations will give you a barrel of good cheer this holiday season.

All I have to ask is this, what the hell happened to Santa's clothes? I mean he's wearing a barrel! Still, I don't want to see a naked Santa, please.

57. For Christmas, treat yourself to these flaming ice cream snowballs.

I wonder how these ice cream balls manage to retain their shape while the candle is still in them. I mean I'd expect the ice cream to melt near a source of heat, would I? Also, fire is dangerous, especially near children.

58. Now here’s Santa enjoying a Coke near a Christmas train set.

Seems like the local Toyland police have finally caught up with him. I'm sure these pilots' fates won't be pretty.

59. Merry Christmas, from the Santa’s bell hop assistant, the Phillip Morris delivery boy.

Now it's one thing for Santa to be on tobacco ads for the Christmas season. But at least Santa Claus is an adult. Yet, having a kid advertise for tobacco, well, that's just incredibly disturbing. Also, that boy is rather terrifying as if he wants to kill people with lung cancer.

60. Nice to see couples decorating the tree this Christmas.

After the tree decorating is over, I'm sure things between the two are about to get really, really awkward. Hope they just get a room already. Still, this would be a better ad if it was promoting Cialis.

61. Ladies, what better gift to give your husband than a month’s supply of Lucky Strikes?

"Don't worry about me, honey, just smoke as much as you want. After all, we have a $100,000 life insurance policy so I'm sure everything's going to be fine."

62. “Gee, Dad! A Winchester!”

Yes, I'm sure a Winchester makes a great gift for the adolescent teenage boy who seems to be on the brink of starting a homicidal rampage for his own amusement.

63. Nothing says Christmas than plastic wrap.

Yeah, I'm sure that plastic ponchos make a great Christmas gift even if they do look ridiculous. Still, I don't think the housewife seems very happy in this illustration. Yet, I'm sure those materials aren't very good for the environment.

64. Give your girl the gift of a shaving razor for her legs.

For God's sake, is that mistletoe on her foot? If not, then what the hell is it and who the hell thought that this image would make a good ad idea? Seriously, this is crazy.

65. For the ladies, I’m sure an H & R rifle would do quite nicely.

This woman seems like there's something wrong with her. I mean seeing her hold the gun, it makes me think that she can't contain any excitement to use it, especially toward her mortal enemies.

66. If you don’t know what to give to the man in your life, perhaps this gift set would do just fine.

This ad doesn't explicitly say what this set pertains to but I'm sure your man will love it. Believe, me I tried to look up the product and I still don't know if it's a men's grooming set, coffee set, or booze set. Seriously, I don't.

67. Santa comes bearing a gift that keeps on giving: Swiss Army Knives.

And it seems that Santa is so overexcited about giving them away as if he's saying, "Hey, kiddies, why don't you take a look at this?"

68. Places Santa Claus doesn’t visit: Homes with bad kids and places with a leaky faucet.

So, kiddos, remember to tell your parents to check the plumbing before Christmas or else, Santa won't visit you. Yes, the only sound Santa can't stand is leaky pipes.

69. What could be nice on Christmas than two dogs sharing an alcoholic drink under the mistletoe?

From the look from the Scottie's face, it seems like things are about to get frisky. Still, remember what Bob Barker always said, "Control the pet population. Don't forget to spay and neuter your pets." Because we all know what would happen if you don't.

70. Remember, fellas, a girl’s best friend is her refrigerator.

So men, be smart this season. Instead of giving your girl the traditional jewelry piece, I'm sure your money would go to better use for appliances. Even though they may cost more than a diamond ring in the long run.

The Wonderful World of Amigurumi

1806687235_c33e8438c5

Amigurumi is the Japanese art of knitting and crocheting small stuffed animals and anthropomorphic creatures. In fact, the word amigurumi itself means, “knitted stuffed doll” in Japanese. Traditionally renderings in such a style tend to be animals but can also include artistic renderings or inanimate objects with anthropomorphic features as is typical Japanese culture. And like a lot of things in Japan, a key characteristic to amigrurumi is cuteness in which figures usually have a round head that’s disproportionally larger than their bodies. Since 2003, amigurumi has become popular to the masses outside its native range that such items are now the most popular pieces. Not only that, but amigurumi figures are being made by people outside Japan as well. And it’s easy to see why. In this post, you will see many amigurumi figures of all shapes and sizes whether it be in the traditional cutesy style, renderings of pop culture aspects, or those having a demented spin that wouldn’t appeal to children. Some will be perfectly appropriate as children’s toys while others, not so much. Nevertheless, for your viewing pleasure, I give you a glimpse into the wonderful world of amigurumi.

1. To kick things off, here’s a nice little crocheted Abominable Snowman.

Now while the one on the Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer special was quite intimidating, this yeti is more like "the Abomibadorable Snowman" to me.

2. For the girl who believes in fairy tales, here’s amigurumi crocheted princess doll.

Sure she may be a lovely princess but she also seems to be from a more ethnically diverse background than most Disney princesses who are usually white. Let's just say Disney has no Asian, Indian (India), Hispanic, or Polynesian princesses whatsoever.

3. For the redhead girl in all of us, meet Emily.

Now she seems the perfect little doll you'd want to give your niece, daughter, or cousin. Still, if Madeline had a granddaughter, she'd look like this.

4. Grace your Christmas tree with this cute crocheted angel.

I've seen a lot of angel amigurumi on Google Images. Of course, the biggest disadvantage of having them as a tree topper is that they don't light up. Yet, that may be easily remedied.

5. Bunny Norman Bates sure loves his mother if you know what I mean.

Of course, only those who've watched Psycho would get this. Still, keep it away from blonde women in showers, especially in hotels that use taxidermy as decor.

Of course, only those who’ve watched Psycho would get this. Still, keep it away from blonde women in showers, especially in seedy desolate motels in the Southwest US that use taxidermy as decor.

6. As with almost every post on crafts, I’d always have to include one featuring Star Wars.

Playset is only available to those who live a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. Also, the Han Solo one always shoots first for some reason.

7. Now here’s a nice little dark hair doll for a young girl.

Now it seems this one is made with realistic looking hair. Yet, she looks kind of awkward that  she lacks a nose and mouth. I mean how does she even eat?

8. Whether it be for little girls or young men, crocheted My Little Pony toys make the perfect gifts.

Let's just hope these My Little Pony toys go to young girls. I mean the very idea of adult men being into My Little Pony is rather disturbing if you ask me. I mean College Humor made quite a few videos mocking it.

9. Now these two sure make a cute couple don’t they?

I see a lot of wedding amigurumi figures as well. Still, while cute, I hope the bride and groom would treasure these forever and not let any of their children play with them. You have no idea what kids can do to toys.

10. It’s a pug! It’s a bee! It’s Pugbee!

Now I'm sure it's cute but I can't tell whether it's a mutant from some genetic experiment or a dog in a Halloween costume.

11. If your kid is scared of shots, why don’t give him or her this adorable little nurse doll?

Now this nurse won't keep you away from germs but I'm sure she'll make everything feel better. Still, we know nurses nowadays don't wear that stereotypical outfit.

12. Behold, I give you the Bride of Frankenstein.

Hate to say this but in Bride of Frankenstein, I'm not sure she was green but she was certainly not happy getting matched up with Boris Karloff's character. And while Frankenstein let his creator and wife escape, him and his bride both died.

13. Now this little bunny would make a great Easter decoration or gift.

Of course, this little bunny was certainly inspired by Hello! Kitty. Yet, at least this one isn't as creepy as the costumed Easter Bunnies.

14. Now I suppose that this is one of the cutest little peacocks I’ve ever seen.

Even though this little peacock is a little girl's toy, it's very obvious this little crocheted stuffed animal is a boy. Seriously, peacocks don't lay eggs and are built with such a feathered train to attract peahens.

15. These crocheted minons almost look like those from Despicable Me.

Of course, minions are a very popular craft subject in a lot of forms. Perhaps it's because they're so cute an very easy to make.

16. Now this little panda is simply as adorable as the real thing.

Of course, while pandas are considered cute due to their black and white composition and bear like appearance, they nevertheless are endangered in China. And I'm sure the pollution there doesn't help.

17. Looks like Pooh and Tigger have been crocheted straight out of the Hundred Acre Wood.

I don't know about you but I think these are almost perfect replicas of the real Disney cartoon characters. Of course, the book illustrations not so much.

18. I’m sure the marshmallows aren’t going to like us making smores.

I'm sure the shaded part is already burned and one of the marshmallows is already dead. And I'm sure the others are fearing an upcoming infernal demise.

19. There’s a happy face in the cheese pizza.

Let's hope the cutter doesn't do anything to this pizza. Still, I think it's very cute if you know what I mean.

20. Oh, great, it’s the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from Ghostbusters.

Now this chrocheted marshmallow titan is much cuter and happier than the one in Ghostbusters. Yet, his appearance is one of the great highlights in the film.

21. Since Frozen is so popular I’m sure any little girl would want a crocheted stuffed Anna and Elsa doll.

I know that Elsa and Anna didn't have button eyes, but they're so cute just the same. Still, we're sure that every little girl wanted to be Elsa for Halloween this year.

I know that Elsa and Anna didn’t have button eyes, but they’re so cute just the same. Still, we’re sure that every little For girl wanted to be Elsa for Halloween this year that there was even a New Yorker cartoon depicting Frankenstein, the Wolfman, and the Creature from the Black Lagoon dressed as her.

22. For breakfast, it’s best that you have your bacon and eggs sunny side up.

Luckily, you don't have your bacon and eggs smile at you in the morning. Else, you might be quite disturbed enough to think twice.

23. From the Lord of Hell to a cuddly plush toy, Satan has done it all.

I'm sure this Satan goat doll with bare breasts isn't going to make an appropriate children's toy by any stretch of the imagination. Still, demented but cuddly.

24. While Bambi’s mom got shot by hunters, he was cut in sections by a meat cleaver.

For kids who haven't seen Bambi: Don't worry, little ones, contrary to this exhibit, Bambi doesn't die in the movie. Yet, this doesn't stop the film from having other scary moments.

25. Ladies and gentlemen, the Beatles.

As with Star Wars, I'm sure I've put a lot of Beatles craft renditions on my blog. This one is from the Fab Four years such as you'd see from A Hard Day's Night. You can tell which one is which.

26. Tale as old as time, song as old as rhyme, beauty and the beast.

Now these are adorable renditions of Belle and the Beast. Still, Beauty and the Beast was one of my favorite Disney films as a little girl.

27. My I introduce to you: Spongebob Squarepants, Suicide Bomber Under the Sea.

Guess kids shouldn't be watching Spongebob Squarepants. He's probably not a great role model committing acts of terror at the expense of his own life. Man, what were they thinking?

28. Looks like Bert couldn’t put up with Ernie’s drinking habits anymore.

So yes, alcohol can ruin lives and relationships, even on Sesame Street. Now Ernie is basically a homeless bum forever begging with change with his rubber duckie in one hand and a bottle of booze in another.

29. I give you Carrie Bear.

While the Care Bears are relatively nice and usually even tempered, Carrie Bear has telekinetic powers and will certainly make your life hell on earth if you make her snap. Let's just say that dumping red paint on her is a very bad idea, indeed.

30. Nothing embodies the holiday spirit at this time of year than the Pumpkin King, Jack Skellington.

Seems that people can't get enough of Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas, which is a masterpiece in animation. Still, you can't really hate Jack Skellington for wanting to do Christmas. Even if he does deliver presents of shrunken heads to children.

31. Let’s just say being a cojoined sister is tough, especially when entering a convent wasn’t your idea.

Then again, even if one of them didn't want to enter the convent, could you imagine what would it be like if one of them got married?

32. Travel to a whole new world with this crocheted Aladdin and Jasmine amigurumi dolls.

Now that's another movie I used to enjoy as a young girl. Of course, while Aladdin had Abu, Genie, and a magic carpet, Jasmine had her pet tiger Rajah and her senile sultan dad. Still, got to love her yarn hair.

33. Now these two dolls certainly love to shine and look their best.

Of course, while amigurumi figures are mostly knitted and crocheted, sometimes the clothes aren't as in this case. Still, they're both pretty cute and rather dressy.

34. How would you like to have a jar of pickles smiling at you every day in a jar?

Just stay in the brine, guys. Of course, one day you'll be taken out of the bridge to be chopped up and put on somebody's burger. So enjoy it while you can.

35. Don’t look now but I think Count Dracula has come to suck your blood.

Let's just say while he may be a menacing vampire who can scare the bejesus out of people in the movies, he isn't nearly as much as a amigurumi. Actually, more cute than scary. Yet, still better than Edward Cullen, that's for sure.

36. Of course, isn’t this bejeweled girl dazzling?

Sure she may have a crocheted dress on but still, you'd have to admit she's quite cute in that outfit and hat. And she's certainly appropriate to give to a young girl for Christmas.

37. Here’s Bob Ross painting his little mountain scene with his happy little trees.

Still, while I know it's Bob Ross, I kind of wish the person making this gave him more of an afro like he had in real life. Still, he did paint those lovely paintings like that on his show.

38. Don’t look now kids, but I think that’s the Goblin King with Toby in Labyrinth.

For people like me growing up in the 1990s, Jareth the Goblin King is probably the main reason of what we know David Bowie as. Still, whoever made this got his hair right on.

39. And now, may I present to you Captain Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean.

Let's just say, Johnny Depp has made a lot of money playing the captain of the Black Pearl. Still, I've seen a lot of crocheted figures of Jack Sparrow when compiling stuff for this post. This is the one I just liked the best.

40. For those who remember, this is a crocheted Pee Wee Herman from his Playhouse show.

For those who forget, Pee Wee Herman was this lovable kids show host from the 1980s who had Pee Wee's Playhouse. Sadly, his career faltered when he was caught with his pants down while watching porn in a theater. And I'm not making this up.

41. Check out these amigurumi dolls in the traditional Japanese style.

Of course, these are all Japanese women and girls in their little kimonos and all. Yet, by Japanese standards during the Heian period, these ladies are way underdressed.

42. For those with green thumbs, perhaps you can give them this little garden gnome crocheted toy.

I don't know about you but this is way cuter than any real garden gnome I've ever seen. Looks like Santa Claus in a little smurf outfit.

Yes, this is Bender from Futurama in drag. And no, I don't think this one is for kids by any means, Still, pretty funny and I'm sure young man would love this.

44. Behold, the Grim Reaper coming to take your soul away.

For an angel of death, I have to admit, he's pretty damn cute. Still, when he's played by Max Von Sydow, he's one hell of a chess player like in The Seventh Seal.

45. Bring magic to your life with this little crocheted Harry Potter.

Of course, everyone would prefer that I put up a picture of some amigurumi Snape, Hagrid, or Dumbledore since everyone seems to like them better in addition to Ron and Hermione.

46. This piece is known as, “Horse Shoots Horse.”

Reminds me of something I'd see in that hilariously bad children's book Latawnya the Naughty Horse Learns to Say No to Drugs. Yeah, it's the one containing pictures of horses drinking booze and smoking cigarettes. It's basically the Reefer Madness to children's books.

47. Rejoice for the Lord Jesus has risen!

Sure I'm a Catholic Christian but I can't pass any stuff pertaining to Jesus for my blog posts. Still, he's very cute as a crocheted finger puppet you wouldn't want to put in a Passion play.

48. Grace your home for the holidays with this lovely little crocheted nativity scene.

Now this is the perfect nativity scene for those who have small children running around the house. At least you don't have to worry about anything getting broken. Oh, and at least the kids could play with the figures.

49. Just a happy little sewing machine.

Of course, this is probably one of the few sewing machines in existence that was almost totally made by hand. Still, it's quite cute if you know what I mean.

50. Who knew that fast food could be so happy?

Now this is pretty cute, despite that these foods aren't really good for you in real life. Seriously, eat enough of them and you'll sure die from some cardiovascular disease.

51. For a young girl, you might want to give her this crocheted doll of Tatiana from The Princess and the Frog.

Say what you want about Disney but I think The Princess and the Frog is a movie that's way better suited for young girls than the original Grimm story it's based on. At least the movie didn't have a moral that goes, "if a guy does something nice for you, you owe him sex," which the original story certainly did.

52. May I present to you the ever imcomprable Ziggy Stardust.

Hard to believe this is my second David Bowie amigurumi I put on this post already. Yet, I'm sure anyone who's listened to "2001: A Space Oddity" would love it. I mean it's very cute.

53. For those opting for foreign cuisine how about some amigurumi take out?

Of course, whoever made this isn't from China or Japan. I mean they have little crocheted sushi bits with a Chinese take out box or a fortune cookie, which is actually an American invention if you know what I mean.

54. While good kids get presents from Santa Claus, really bad kids get kidnapped by the Krampus.

Now the Krampus isn't a Christmas tradition we have in the United States. But it is popular in certain areas of Europe. Still, this little girl doesn't seem very happy by any means.

55. Now this group is perhaps among one of the best crocheted teams Marvel has ever assembled.

Hard to believe that the guy who played Thor has recently become the Sexiest Man Alive according to People Magazine. Of course, I'm sure the other guys in the Avengers would disagree about that in years to come.

56. No holiday season would be complete without crocheted figures of Santa and Mrs. Claus.

Now don't these two make an adorable couple? I mean look at their matching outfits for God's sake.

Now don’t these two make an adorable couple? I mean look at their matching outfits for God’s sake. Still, nobody can’t love Santa besides possibly small children.

57. Watch these onigiri do make a snowflake star together.

Now I'm sure that onigiri are Japanese rice bowls combined with seaweed. Might also a be a vegetarian's equivalent to sushi but I'm not so sure about that. Still, you have to admire the cuteness in arrangement.

58. For you Audrey Hepburn fans, here’s a crocheted figure of her as Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Now though I like Audrey Hepburn, I'm not a fan of Breakfast at Tiffany's. Sure Audrey's pretty and her clothes are nice but it's just that it doesn't have much of a plot and that Mickey Rooney plays a very offensive Japanese stereotype.

59. If you’re into Ancient Rome and its Empire, here’s an amigurumi of a Roman centurion.

Now I'm not sure whether I'd want to name him "Bickus Dickus" or "Nautius Maximus." Decisions, decisions.

Now I’m not sure whether I’d want to name him “Bickus Dickus” or “Nautius Maximus.” Decisions, decisions. Still, what have the Romans ever done for us?

60. Now this piece is called, “Santa Clawed” which combines two things I like: Christmas and Alfred Hitchcock.

Man, I'm sure as hell those doves aren't getting anything for Christmas this year. And I'm sure Santa really needs to see the ophthalmologist.

61. Now what little kid wouldn’t go crazy over this cute little penguin?

Yes, this little guy is certainly adorable with its rosy cheeks. I'm sure anyone would think it makes a nice gift for a child. I mean you just want to take this little penguin home, too. I understand.

62. Finally, a puppy that would simply tug at your heartstrings.

Of course, a stuffed puppy is the only kind of dog you should give your kids for Christmas. Live puppies are a horrible idea and most of them get abandoned anyway.

63. Have a fiesta with these crocheted Mexican food items.

I love the little Mexican mustache on the taco figure. Oh, and I suppose that's a bottle of tequila behind that and the nachos in guacamole.

64. I now give you the happy little guillotine.

This little blade seems quite happy chopping people's heads off with the  pull of a string. I'm not sure about the state of mind for the executioner though.

65. Seems like that putty tat Sylvester finally caught Tweety if you know what I mean.

Looks like Tweety is going to meet a grisly end by being cooked in a boiling soup pot and served to Sylvester's dinner guests. It's a shame.

66. So you see, kids, unicorns do puke rainbows.

On one hand, this is rather disgusting. Yet, on the other hand, it's actually quite pretty. I mean how can we hate rainbows and unicorns? Seriously.

67. Now this is how Walter and Jesse cook meth.

Both these guys come with their own removable suit and Walter has his hat. Also, when you take Walter's yellow suit off, he has no pants. Just his tidy whiteys.

68. Now this girl seems all dressed up and ready to play in the snow.

Since I love purple, I would certainly have wanted a little doll like this when I was a little girl. Still, she's just so cute with her dark yarn hair.

69. Anyone want to build a snowman?

Now that's a cute snowman to put on your mantlepiece. Even better is that it doesn't come with a corn cob pipe.

Now that’s a cute snowman to put on your mantlepiece. Even better is that it doesn’t come with a corn cob pipe.

70. This little crocheted Indiana Jones goes globetrobbing for priceless artifacts.

I suppose that this little guy is also expert with a bull whip, hate snakes, destroys ancient buildings for trinkets, and is a really shitty professor.

71. Now these owl amigurumi figures are certainly worth hooting for.

Because not only are the incredibly adorable, they also come in a lot of different shapes, sizes, and colors. There's even a purple one.

Because not only are the incredibly adorable, they also come in a lot of different shapes, sizes, and colors. There’s even a purple one.

72. Seems like Raggedy Ann has gone off the deep end.

Either that, or this is the love child between Raggedy Ann and Freddy Kreuger. And I hope it's the latter because I don't want to see Raggedy Ann be someone who appeared to escape Arkham Asylum.

73. Of course, you can’t have an amigurumi post without including Japanese icon Hello Kitty.

I was going to put up a picture of Hello Kitty committing sepukku on this post. Yet, I decided against it for reasons I can't really disclose on this blog. Still, she's totally a cat but cute though.

74. Is is just me or is that the evil penguin from Wallace and Gromit?

I'm sorry Feathers McGraw but there's no way in hell that putting a rubber glove on your head could convince me that you're a chicken. I mean, you're not fooling anybody (save perhaps Wallace).

75. In Hawaii, you might be delighted to see this little girl in the grass skirt.

Of course, I'm sure this is probably the only thing made of wool a young girl in Hawaii would probably have considering the state's climate and all. Still, she's simply adorable beside the old style bus I believe.

76. Check out this amigurumi of Mulan, from the Disney movie.

This is Mulan at the point of the movie before she started crossdressing and joining the army in her father's place. Still, please don't consider her a princess because she certainly isn't by any means.

77. Man, what ran over this possum really caused it to spew its guts out.

Actually, I've seen a lot of roadkill on my road during my walks. And let me tell you, I've seen a lot worse when it comes to dead possums. Besides, I don't consider possums cute by any means at all.

78. Now I’m sure this little crocheted doll is a perfect prima ballerina.

Still, while I don't really get dancing and ballet at all, I have to admit this doll is so cute. Also, like how she reflects in the mirror. She seems so happy. Wait until she realizes that dancers don't have long careers, unless they perform at some seedy joint like the Filly Corral.

79. Look at that cute little mermaid lounging on the beach.

Sure she's adorable and makes a great gift for a young girl. But whatever you do, don't put her near water. Seriously, you don't want to do that to stuffed toys.

80. Now doesn’t this girl make a pretty little snowflake in her little snowflake dress?

Yes, she's a snowflake girl. And no, she's not Snow Queen's daughter to a Mexican bandito. At least I hope she's not. Still, she's really cute if you know what I mean.

The Wonderful World of Bath Soaps

Bath House Soaps

As we all know, soap is a rather essential product in our every day living. After all, we use soap to clean ourselves with whenever we take a bath or shower. We also use it for dishes, our clothes, and our spaces. It also comes in forms like bars, salts, liquids. and powder detergent. Still, while most people view soap as a cleaning agent to wash things and people with, this doesn’t stop people from using it for creative artistic expression. Mostly they’d make their own soap designs as gifts, but sometimes you’d wonder. Still, what I’m about to show you are the many designs which people and companies have made and manufacture. So without further adieu, here are some uniquely designed soaps for your viewing pleasure. Of course, we’ll be seeing designs from bath soap, naturally.

1. Heard of soap on a rope? Well, here’s soap on a roll.

Actually, using your toilet roll as a soap dispenser might come in handy. Except I would need the roll for toilet paper.

2. A little butter on your toast, perhaps?

Okay, it's soap so I'm probably not going to eat that. Still, I can't tell whether the yellow stuff is butter or melted cheese. Seems more like melted cheese to me.

3. You’ve heard about growing a mustache. How about washing with one?

Available in brown and pink, apparently. And no, you can't eat them though they do resemble chocolates if you know what I mean.

4. Man, can’t believe you can have money in your soap.

It's going to take me a hell of a long time to get my $10 back. And even then, I'm not sure if I can use it to buy anything.

5. Smell like a tropical paradise with some coconut soap.

I don't know about you, but that resembles more of a ball of cream filled chocolate than a coconut to me. And it seems delicious.

6. For a great gift for your sweetheart for Valentine’s Day, how about a nice chocolate heart soap?

Of course, your girlfriend will get mad at you when she realizes that it's soap and not chocolate. This is especially true if that girlfriend is me.

7. Hey, would you want some fries with your Burger King order?

Still, eating these fries might cause you to cough out soap bubbles when you try to wash them down. Also, won't taste in any way like French fries.

8. And now, scrub yourself clean with soap kebabs.

Now while this is pretty creative, I'm sure it's now for kids. I mean the skewers can be quite sharp and poke somebody's eye out.

9. How about some popcorn for the movie?

Then again, this popcorn soap may be better suited to wash yourself after you come back from the movies smelling of real popcorn and who knows what else.

10. Jesus Christ came to this world to cleanse the world from sin as well as died on the cross for it. Now you can have Jesus on a rope cleanse your body, face, and naughty bits.

Now this is just priceless. Still, knowing it's Jesus on a rope, I can't just pass this one up. Let's just say, I can have a lot of fun with this one but I also don't want to say anything inappropriate either.

11. As 96.1 KISS FM always said, “It’s peanut butter jelly time.”

Compared to real sandwiches, these PB&J soaps seem to be much neater than the real thing. Of course, you wouldn't want to eat this one since it may kill you.

12. Nothing cleans better than a bunch of disembodied baby hands.

Now this is creepy. Seriously, baby hands? Who the hell thought this would be a great soap idea? There's no way I'd want to clean my armpits with the hand of a 9 month old!

13. Love may stink but the soap shall set you clean.

Of course, you don't want to give this soap to your sweetheart on Valentine's Day would you? Might send the wrong message.

14. Sometimes the path to good hygiene is just a click away.

Still, I'm sure that these mice may not be great for your computer, but they will sure do you wonders in the shower. Also, a great way to tell your local IT guy that he freaking stinks.

15. Of course, you can’t leave without grabbing a drumstick of soap, that is.

Nevertheless, hope rubbing yourself with this soap in the shower doesn't make you smell like garlic or seasoning. The marinade may smell great on a real chicken, but not so much on you.

16. For the Jew in your life, may I suggest to you a matzo ball soap as a gift for Chanukah?

I don't think matzo balls are that big. Still, it's interesting it comes with its own box with a stereotypically Jewish guy on it and Hebrew lettering.

17. Now having a Tyrannosaurus Rex soap will make you cleaner than you’ve ever been since 65 million years ago.

Still, this would make a great gift for a young boy since boys tend to go crazy over dinosaurs. Well, unless that special little boy in your life tends to be the kid from Jurassic Park.

18. Summer is the time of frozen treats on a popsicle stick whether they have ice cream or not.

Of course, these are soaps. Yet, this hasn't stopped one person from biting into the ice cream sandwich one.

19. Looks like Fido needs a treat.

Then again, this might be better used to clean Fido than to feed him. In fact, feeding him this bone soap may poison him.

Then again, this might be better used to clean Fido than to feed him. In fact, feeding him this bone soap may poison him. And now you know.

20. Of course, since everyone loves bacon, we just have to have bacon soap.

Of course, sometimes it's better to eat bacon than to smell like it. I mean no one wants to smell like bacon grease since it may attract the neighborhood dogs.

21. Now here’s a soap of a Japanese sumo wrestler.

Please tell me he's wearing a loin cloth under there. I know it's really hard to tell due to the that he's so morbidly obese.

Please tell me he’s wearing a loin cloth under there. I know it’s really hard to tell due to the that he’s so morbidly obese like most sumo wrestlers.

22. For Valentine’s Day, try out these cute little candy soap hearts.

Of course, the real Valentine's Day heart candies are very much inedible anyway as well as made by Necco, a company known for its bad candies. Still, this might be a better gift than real candy hearts.

23. Be up to your Easter Sunday best with these colored egg soaps.

It's clever that these come in a little egg carton. However, I wish they had one of them in purple. Still, at least they won't become egg salad once the Easter season is gone.

24. My mama always said life is like a box of chocolate soaps because you never know what you’re going to get.

Couldn't resist the Forrest Gump reference. Still, unlike real assorted chocolates, at least you don't have to worry what you're going to get with using these soaps. I mean they all have the same contents.

25. Now there’s nothing better to scrub your hands than some hand soap on a rope.

Then again, when I mentioned "hand soap on a rope" this isn't really the kind I had in mind. Still, looks like something you'd see in the Addams family bathroom or something.

26. Now here’s some soaps of hot spicy peppers you’d put in Mexican food.

I'm sure while most people love Mexican food to some extent, I'm sure that no one wants to smell like it. And I'm certainly sure no one wants to smell like chili or jalapeno peppers either.

27. Now here’s the soap of a true wiener.

Hey, at least this soap resembles a wiener dog or dachshund. Still, anyone who assumed differently ought to get their minds out of the gutter.

28. Now these pig soaps may come straight out of Old McDonald’s farm.

However, despite how nice these pig soaps may smell, they won't be able to make you smell better if you work on a pig farm. Believe me, I watched Waking Ned Devine on that one.

29. If you or your kids love Legos, they’d love these soaps of Legos blocks.

Unlike real Legos, it won't hurt you when you step on them. Well, eventually. But stepping on one of these in the shower will make you slip and perhaps fall.

31. These skull and cross bones soaps would be a great gift for a pirate.

Still, if you read about my movie history post on the Golden Age of Piracy, you may get the impression that many 17th-early 18th century pirates had so atrocious hygiene habits that your average pirate ship would make the 1969 Woodstock concert seem like Mr. Monk's apartment.

32. For those who work at a nuclear facility, I’m sure this radioactive soap and sponge kit would make a great gift.

Now luckily, using this kit to clean yourself won't lead you to radiation exposure. Of course, I can't say the same about venturing near Chernobyl, Fukishima, or the Waltz Mill Westinghouse building near the Ruffsdale KOA.

Now luckily, using this kit to clean yourself won’t lead you to radiation exposure. Of course, I can’t say the same about venturing near Chernobyl, Fukishima, or the Waltz Mill Westinghouse building near the Madison KOA. Yes, I know there was a nuclear meltdown at Waltz Mill in the 1970s.

33. May shower time never be the same with these rainbow heart soaps.

Now I don't know about you but I can't see why anybody shouldn't love rainbows, especially on hearts. Still, these are so pretty and cute. Hope they smell good, too.

35. All right, leggo my soapy eggo if you dare.

Yes, this is waffle soap. And no, I'm not sure if it tastes like maple syrup. That, or whether the maple syrup on that is actually solid soap.

38. Finally, chocolate cookie soaps.

Then again, I'd rather have the real chocolate chip cookies than soaps of them. I mean I really love chocolate chip cookies, especially when they're fresh out of the oven.

39. And now, the new Apple iPhone.

Whoever thought this was a real iPhone is bound to be disappointed when they realize that none of the buttons don't work. Also, when it gathers suds in the shower.

40. Bath time will never be the same again with this Nintendo Wii soap.

Of course, while great for bath time and possibly smelling nice, it's probably not as fun as having a real Wii. Still, at least it won't electrocute you in the tub.

41. I give you Oreo cookie soaps.

Let me make this perfectly clear. Don't use these Oreos to dunk in milk or eat them. Believe me, you don't want anyone to call the poison hotline on you.

42. Here are some doughnut soaps with different colors of icing.

These would be great soaps for bathrooms at doughnut joints and police stations. Then again, perhaps police tend to have healthier eating habits than we think.

43. Scrub your way into the shower with an old time Nintendo game controller.

Of course, this might be better for scrubbing your arm pits than beating your friend at Super Mario Bros.

44. Of course, we always need to scrub our fingers.

Yet, I don't know if I'd be comfortable with cleaning myself with finger soaps. Seriously, this seems to be rather disturbing.

45. Well, let’s settle into some delicious pepperoni pizza.

Oh, wait. This is soap. Better put in the bathroom before I forget it's not edible. I might need my stomach pumped if I take a bite out of this.

47. Of course, I’m sure the NRA has their bathrooms stocked with these pistol soaps.

Still, I'm sure using this gun soap to fake a suicide attempt is a common occurrence. Yet, I hope people don't mistake the real gun for this, especially in the shower. It wouldn't be pretty.

48. If you need to defend yourself, here’s a soap of brass knuckles.

Then again, I don't think soap knuckles would stand a chance against any kind of metal knuckle imaginable. Yet, a rather good imitation of brass knuckles if you know what I mean. Not to mention, perfectly safe for kids.

50. Have a steady supply of soap with this lovely sushi soap set.

This way you wouldn't just know how to keep clean, but you'd learn how to use chopsticks as well. This would especially come in handy the next time you visit a Japanese restaurant.

52. Now the first rule of Fight Club is that nobody talks about Fight Club.

If you've seen the movie, you'd know what this soap references. Still, let's just say I don't want to see that movie again.

58. Have a lovely piece of artwork in your bathroom such as a soap of the Venus de Milo.

59. Scrub yourself clean with Michelangelo’s David.

Now while Charleton Heston was sure that Michelangelo was 100% heterosexual, historical evidence begs to differ. Still, it's almost as true to the real thing upon green.

60. Make your bath time a masterpiece with Sandro Boticelli’s The Birth of Venus.

As far as Renaissance art pieces go, this is a very appropriate piece you can put on a soap. After all, it has Aphrodite rising from the sea through a large shell.

61. If your girlfriend’s a fan of the 1997 James Cameron film, she’d love this soap rendition.

62. As we have these candy mints after dinner, you might want to use these candy mints soaps before.

Now I'm sure when some one gives you a breath mint, it means you have halitosis. When someone gives you breath mint soap, it means that either you stink or you're dirty.

Yes, this is a potato soap. And no, you can't bake it, mash it, or cut it up. Yet, it will get you clean in the shower even though it might make others scratch their heads in confusion.

66. For the holiday season, I’m sure Christmas light soaps would make your bathroom seem festive.

They may not light up, but at least you don't have to decorate the outside of your house with them. Of course, they're just bulbs if you know what I mean.

68. What better way to get yourself clean than with a soap resembling microbes on a petri dish.

69. Perhaps you can smell like flowers with this lovely floral soap.

Then again, perhaps this soap should just be for display only. I mean these flowers are so beautiful if you know what I mean. Still, how in the hell do they make stuff like this?

74. Soapy, soapy, night. Paint your pallet blue and bright.

How many times has Vincent Van Gogh's Starry Night been immortalized? Still, I wouldn't wash with this soap since it's so pretty.

75. Of course, what Star Wars fan wouldn’t want a soap of Han Solo frozen in carbonite in their bathroom?

Of course, I've seen Han Solo carbonite stuff in a lot of things like soaps, chocolates, coffee tables, and more. I wonder if Harrison Ford has one of these.

76. How about a bacon cheeseburger with some pickles and fries?

Don’t Try This at Home Craft Projects

Crafts

Crafts have always been with us and will probably go on forever. Whether it’s from the kid made to do some project in art class or the adult with repressed creative impulses who wants to make money from Etsy, we’ve seen them all. Such arts could range from the DIY to sewing and knitting, upholstery, taxidermy, beading, jewelry making, or what not. After all, some people create stuff to use as gifts for others. Yet, while some craft projects might inspire love and adoration, others not so much. Still, while I could go on and on about the nice little craft ideas and such, you would find that boring. Instead, I’ll feature pictures of DIY craft projects that are so crazy and terrible that you’d wonder why anyone would buy them off Etsy. If not, then perhaps make you scratch your head as to why anyone would create such a craftastrophe in the first place. So without further adieu, here are some craft projects you might not want kids doing art class. By the way, this post may not be safe for work.

1. If you want to make baby’s first Thanksgiving memorable, perhaps you can put them in this cute little turkey costume.

Let's just say, when this baby grows up, he's going to look at his old baby pictures and wonder what the hell were his parents thinking. Seriously, this is pretty disturbing.

2. Brave the elements with this knitted poncho headdress.

Now while I'm sure this poncho can keep you warm, I'm not sure if it can keep you immune from embarrassment. Still, seems more of a cross between knitted table cloth and something you'd see in a fashion show in Saudi Arabia.

3. Behold, a style of sunglasses inspired by the flamboyant fashion sense of Lady Gaga and the 1340s Bubonic Plague doctor.

Yeah, I'm sure this sunglasses style plays less what you'd see in a Lady Gaga music video and more of a cross between Lady Gaga meets Big Bird's evil twin.

4. Bundle up with this state of the art boob scarf.

Now I don't know this item's effectiveness against winter weather. However, I'm sure that wearing it will give you a lot of unwanted attention, especially if you're a guy.

6. Scrub yourself off after the big game with some Buffalo Wings and celery soap.

I'm sure no little kid is going to see these and mistake this soap set for the real thing. Yeah right. Still, why make soap that resembles food?

7. Give your sweetheart a reminder to practice safe sex with this lovely condom flower bouquet.

I'm sure every girl out there wants their boyfriend to send them a dozen condom flowers for Valentine's Day. For God's sake this bouquet is in such poor taste as well as the fact you'd be embarrassed to have such a display in your home. This is especially true if you or your guests have kids. Perhaps these would look better in a love nest or sex dungeon.

8. Now grace your house with this knitted pig being cut open on a platter.

I wonder if Jewish or Muslim parents would buy such an item for their kids so they could make them too traumatized to eat pork, ham, sausage, or bacon. Yeah, this is very disturbing.

9. Scrub yourself squeakly clean with these soap dentures.

Let's hope that these never show up in any home for the elderly shall we? After all, some may mistake this for their own set of dentures if you know what I mean.

10. Add a little character to you lawn with this Duck Lady statue.

Now having a statue of a naked woman is one thing, but with her sporting a duck's head. Well, that's just an all too tacky lawn ornament to ignore. Seriously, this is just a terrible statue.

11. Protect yourself with this tampon gun and bullets.

I always thought tampons were just feminine hygiene products meant to protect women from dirtying their clothes during their time of the month. I guess they're also great for home security as well.

12. Now these soaps with razor blades make great gifts for the whole family.

I'm sure everyone in your family would love to have soaps like these. Well, anyone in your family serving time in the state penitentiary that is. However, I'm sure these would get confiscated by the guards upon entry regardless.

13. Give your child a unicorn bike they will certainly treasure.

I'm sure this boy is very happy with his new bike as the boy in the background is looking at him with some confused disdain. Still, it's all fun and games until he gets beat up in school for it.

14. For the upcoming movie 50 Shades of Grey, here’s Barbie as Anastasia Steele with her very own sex dungeon.

Then again, I hear there's a BDSM Dominatrix Barbie as well. Of course, this one comes with her own cat o' nine tails. Yet, I wonder what BDSM Ken looks like.

15. Please your man this Christmas with these homemade knitted men’s shorts.

Let's just say even if your guy says he likes these, he will never wear them. Seriously, this is a perfectly terrible waste of yarn. Making him an ugly Christmas sweater would've been a better idea.

16. Got beer cans? Well, make a lovely flower display with them for your living room.

I'm sure this Heineken six pack tulip planter will only please two kinds of people: rednecks and environmentalists. Other than that, most people would question your taste in interior decorating upon viewing this.

17. Be the life of the party with this Pabst can skirt.

Now if this girl's in college, it's very likely that her boyfriend's in a fraternity. Else, how else could she collect all the Pabst beer cans to make this.

Now if this girl’s in college, it’s very likely that her boyfriend’s in a fraternity. Else, how else could she collect all the Pabst beer cans to make this. Still, at least this skirt is bound to slice the crap out of a potential rapist.

18. Make these figurines by creating clay made from the lint in your clothes dryer.

Sure this may look cute but making figurines with dryer lint. Well, that's about up there with knitting with dog hair. Yeah.

19. Step in style with these duck foot pumps to go with your duckface.

Unless your job is to play Daisy Duck in Disney World, then I don't have the slightest idea why any woman wouldn't look stupid in these. Seriously, these are just crazy.

20. Keep your feet warm with these colorful knitted knee socks.

Now I can't decide whether these are clown socks or psychedelic socks. Then again, if they were created by someone who's high and smell like reefer, then it's probably the latter.

21. May your DIY crown of thorns not only show your love for Jesus on Easter but also be used a a prop for your local Passion Play.

Now I'm sure there's nothing wrong with using a crown of thorns as a DIY project or Easter decoration. However, it's best that you don't make this item a sacrilegious artifact by using it as an hors de' oerdurve tray. Else, the Lord will smite you.

If not, then my grandma certainly will.

22. With this breakfast hat and purse, you will always have it to go.

I'm sure this woman looks so smart with her eggs, sausage, and has browns purse as well as her bacon and eggs hat. Still, I doubt she'd want to show up at the office wearing them.

23. Adorn yourself with these lovely earrings with toilet paper made of pearls.

I'm sure no woman would be caught dead wearing these. That is, unless she's interviewing for a job with the sewage authority.

I’m sure no woman would be caught dead wearing these. That is, unless she’s interviewing for a job with the sewage authority or waste management. Or perhaps dating someone from those fields.

24. No girl isn’t all dressed and ready to go unless she has her very own Louis Vuitton assault rifle.

While the Louis Vuitton assault rifle may be one of the most fashionable firearms, but it can kill you. Still, why the hell would anyone make this? It's just so fucked up.

25. Have any child feel at home with this nice little coat rack of disembodied doll parts.

Now this might be perfectly fine with the Addams family nursery. Yet, I don't think I could say the same about any other kid's room. Seriously, this is bound to cause nightmares.

26. Light your rooms with these lovely handbag lamps with feet.

30. Now that is one fancy ring.

From Regretsy: "It’s called a 'cocktail ring' because you can balance a 12 ounce tumbler on it. And it’s ceramic, so you’re all set when the hot hors d’oeuvres come out." Yet, I'm not sure if it's also used as a top hat for parrots.

From Regretsy: "Kind of like, 'one-size-fits-most' and 'must have.' I'm not sure about 'elegant' and 'poncho,' but then, I haven't seen it in 'Blue Moose in the Woods.'" Also, since I'm way over say, six I'd be embarrassed to wear it.

From Regretsy:  "QUESTIONS 1. What am I looking at? 2. Where did the alien get the horse? Is it an alien horse? If so, does it contain nuts? 2. What if I wanted the head made out a filbert? 3. How much is shipping to Earth? 4. Can I buy this if I have squirrels?"

37. I’m sure a rose hair decoration made from orange peel is a piece of beauty.

I don't know about you but I don't think using a compost piece as a hair decoration is a good idea. In fact, I think it's rather disgusting and highly unsanitary.

39. “*CIRCLES OF VERISIMILITUDE* represents numerous useful platters, clocks, and mirrors, all created from large metal container lids, 24 inches inches in diameter, and formed from collections of miscellaneous ‘stuff.'”

Well, I'm sure there are worse things you can do with disposable razors. I suppose killing yourself ranks among them. Still, I'm sure if I'd want this for my bourdoir since the mirror seems too small.

40. Now what young girl doesn’t want a pillow with Tinkerbell’s face on it?

Man, Tinkerbell certainly hasn't aged very well. Also, I don't know about you, but I'm sure she's had Botox injections if you know what I mean. Still, she's really gone downhill since Peter Pan.

41. “Victorian inspired turtle foot, with gold foil, brass wire, and bee detail. Antique green point-back rhinestones add extra sparkle, and the brass dangle gives a touch of whimsy.”

Just what I need for my new outfit: a decaying disembodied turtle foot encrusted in jewels. Wonder what happened to the rest of the turtle.

44. For those who want to keep their bong with their lighter, here’s a rainbow bong cozy.

Now unless you live in an area where pot's legalized, I'm sure you'll be arrested for selling either of these drug paraphernalia items on the internet. I mean look what happened to Tommy Chong.

This woman really needs to clean her house. And I suppose that she has a ton of cats as well. Still, this is a doll house you'd give to a young girl.

48. Make a giant dream catcher by weaving neck ties and panty hose around a hula hoop.

Then again, I don't know what the hell this thing is. Seriously, the dreamcatcher was the closest approximation in my book. Perhaps it's what a teacher of mine called a "gok" meaning "God Only Knows."

49. Take your mom’s tacky garden flamingos and turn them into dragons.

Never in the history of the world has something been so tacky yet so awesome at the same time. Yet, it kind more or less resembles a flamingo cyborg dragon that's painted purple and sprinkled with glitter.

50. I’m sure your cat would love this little mobile hat of the solar system.

I'm sure this cat seems board of its mind as well as embarrassed to have its picture taken with this solar system hat on its head. Nice try, Sheldon Cooper.

51. If your cat loves to snuggle on your lap, why don’t you give them the next best thing?

This cat is probably thinking: "There's no way in God's green acres that I'm sitting sleeping on this pair of legs. No way in hell. Also, where are the torso and hands to stroke my fur? And where's it's head?"

52. For the first time ever, I bring you Potato Sack Couture.

Now I didn't know that the Paris Runway was featuring Boise for Fashion week this year. Guess those down home farm fashions are coming back.

53. For those who want to relive key moments from The Wire, here are some miniature blocks of crack or what’s referred to as, “product.”

Now if only if they come up with a line of The Wire action figures like they did with Breaking Bad. Of course, Omar's would sell off the charts.

54. And now a replica of Roary, mascot for the Detroit Lions.

Looks more like an appropriate mascot for the Detroit Pistons to me. That or perhaps what you get if the Terminator mated with the giant demonic blue horse at the Denver Airport.

55. Now nothing says cozy than a pair of bedroom slippers made from Maxi pads.

Seriously, who thought this was a good idea? And yes, I do wear Maxi pads on a monthly basis but that's where the sun don't shine. So if I had some kind of emergency during my time of the month does that mean I could wear one of these in my underwear?

56. And now a crocheted reenactment of The Exorcist.

Now this scene is disgusting enough. Yet, let's just say if this makes your stomach upset, then you don't want to see how this scene plays out in the movie. Seriously, you don't.

57. Finally, a nice soap for young girls.

For God's sake, what's with the "Face Soap, Not Balls Soap" disclaimer. I'm sure there's no man who'd want to scrub his testicles with a soap that's meant for young girls. I mean what the hell?

58. Seems E. T. didn’t have a good time in Las Vegas.

And I thought E. T. was such a sweet alien from what I've seen in the movie. Looks like my childhood is ruined since E. T.'s hung over, fresh from a fight, and has a real attitude problem.

59. Now even a young girl can have her very own Sasquatch baby doll to call her own.

Eddie Munster, meet your new baby sister Debbie. I'm sure you two will get along great together since she looks a lot like you.

60. Relive your experience in high school biology class with this dissected frog knit display.

Now I remember why I didn't want to take a biology class in college and opted for geology and chemistry instead during my sophomore year. Of course, the chemistry class pertained to nutrition and hearing about Type II Diabetes every week, but that's beside the point.

61. Nothing makes an ocean home better than a mirror decorated from inedible crab legs.

Now in regards to ocean style decor, this is quite terrifying if you know what I mean. This especially true if you have some idea where these legs came from.

62. Now this seems like a truly relaxing couch pillow.

If the famous Cubist painter Pablo Picasso did couch pillows, they would've looked like this. Yet, I suppose they would've been more colorful.

63. And now, three new flavors of lip balm for men.

I don't know about you but I kind of consider the idea of bacon, pizza, and dill pickle lip balm flavors rather disgusting. I mean applying these might make some people think you have a severe case of halitosis or just haven't brushed your teeth.

64. May I present to you a unique artistic rendition of a liver transplant.

Now I don't know about you but I see something sinister in that surgeon. Also, is that patient George W. Bush? Looks like it. Then again, Bush is an alcoholic whether he's been drinking or not as well as a horrible president.

Then again, Bush is an alcoholic whether he’s been drinking or not as well as a horrible president. Also, I wonder if there’s one of a proctologist or someone getting a colonoscopy.

65. I’m sure these are salt and pepper shakers, honestly.

Still, knowing that the "P" can mean "pee" or "piss" while the "s" could pertain to "shit," let's just say the premise of outhouse salt and pepper shakers is rather disgusting once you really think about it.

66. Adorn your living room with these giant pillows of rotten bananas.

I'm sure the person who made these was planning on doing banana pillows but couldn't find any yellow fabric. So he or she probably settled with black instead. Still, rather disgusting if you know what I mean.

67. And now, a great fashion runway show featuring the Hamburger Monster Yarn Dress.

I guess this Yarn Hamburger Queen dress was one of the failed attempts for McDonalds to find a new companion for the Hamburglar. Yet, only the Hamburglar would know that this dress was good enough to eat.

68. I now introduce you to Chewbacca, master of seduction.

Now let's say that there are some women who may find a walking carpet like Chewie rather sexy, but those girls usually attend furry conventions. Still, this is a great Star Wars take off from that picture of George in that Seinfeld episode.

69. In the NSA even the coffeemakers are spies.

Don't look now but whenever someone in the NSA gets a cup of joe, this coffee machine is watching them every second of the day. Talk about terrifying.

70. Grace your living room with this lovely coffin couch.

I'm sure this coffin would go very well in Dracula's Transylvania Castle. I'm sure it would be a great place for him to sleep whenever his wife banishes him from their double coffin during the day.

71. During Halloween, perhaps you can dispense little pumpkin soaps to trick or treaters.

I'm sure kids would know that these pumpkin soaps aren't real candy they could eat. Well, any kid over the age of 6 anyway.

Seriously, a cozy for a vibrator? Now I haven't heard that before. Still, why?

73. Get in the fall spirit wit this turkey feather headdress.

Looks more like something I'd see on my next door neighbor's living room wall than something I'd actually wear on my head. Of course, the turkey in question would've been shot by my neighbors' anyway.

74. Now I’m sure this is a great Thanksgiving outfit for a toddler girl.

Seriously, this is the toddler equivalent of the ugly Christmas sweater. Also, it's incredibly hideous. If I had a daughter, there's no way in hell I'd have her wear that. That would be too cruel.

75. While adults have pumpkin spice lattes, it’s only natural for kids to have pumpkin spice Play Dough.

Then again, maybe this autumn pumpkin spice craze might be going too far. Thanks a lot, Starbucks. Of course I was being sarcastic.

76. To decorate your living room for Thanksgiving, here’s a painting of a dysfunctional family dinner.

Still, may this dysfunctional family dinner painting be a reminder that you're thankful for having a family that's not like them.

Still, may this dysfunctional family dinner painting be a reminder that you’re thankful for having a family that’s not like them. I mean these people seem very screwed up with several members being alcoholics.

77. For Thanksgiving, why don’t you eat pretzels with these turkey pretzel holders.

Of course, these Thanksgiving pretzel holders could also double as dildos. However, I'm sure a dildo with a turkey face could totally kill the mood.

78. Greet the new year with this stunning New Year’s Eve dress.

You may not know it, but this dress also doubles as a bedsheet or drapery. Still, hope this woman has a holed hood to go with it or she may offend many from the African American community.

79. To get in the Christmas spirit, I give you the coal angel.

Of course, this coal angel doesn't seem too happy here. Then again, I'm sure there aren't many kids who'd want her in their stocking. Yet, at least you can toss her in the fire come January.

80. Grace your office with this lovely glass paper weight of Swedish ice.

I don't know about you, but this doesn't seem to resemble much of a Swedish iceberg as it tends to look like a glass turd.

The Wonderful World of Thanksgiving Cakes

turkey_thanksgiving_cake2

As with most holidays, cakes seem to have a special place. And Thanksgiving is no exception. Of course, the motifs are turkey, Pilgrims, Indians, pumpkins, cornucopia, and fall. Of course, you’ve probably seen some of them in my previous post on Thanksgiving treats. Still, I could go on and on about the nice lovely turkey day cakes I’ve seen. However, all that would make you unwilling to view such post. So instead, I’ll show you some other cakes that you might not want around at your family home on Thanksgiving. Whether it’s poor depictions of turkeys or something you don’t want your kids to see, sometimes mistakes are made. So without further adieu, here are some of the cakes featuring Thanksgiving blunders.

1. I’m sorry about your cornfield being hit by that tornado.

Wait a minute, this is a cornucopia? Still, at least we can be thankful for not having to see those giant corny death rays.

2. Looks like that Pilgrim Father’s wearing a hat that seems 3 sizes too small.

Are you sure this isn't a cake meant to celebrate Saint Patrick's Day? Just saying.

Are you sure this isn’t a cake meant to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day? Just saying. Then again, he may just have been covering a receding hairline.

3. This cake is a representation of what happens if you give a Butterball Turkey to a vegetarian.

That's right. Give a turkey to a vegetarian and it will sit in the fridge for days until it gathers mildew and starts to smell.

That’s right. Give a turkey to a vegetarian and it will sit in the fridge for days until it gathers mildew and starts to smell terribly.

4. As we all say, “In one end and out the other.”

Yet, as far as this cake decorator was concerned, I wonder if he or she was sure which end was which. I mean the head seems to be iced on the wrong end.

5. This bird’s on fire, it’s rolling down the road…..

Basically this is what happens to a turkey if you think cooking one for Thanksgiving is setting one on fire while alive.

6. While some say “Happy Thanksgiving,” others take a bit of artistic license.

From Cakewrecks: "And lo, they laid the baby glow worm in a manger, and saideth, 'Thanks AND Giving' Lo. Cometh hath. And sucheth."

7. As he awaited his torment in the infernal regions of Hell, Tom the Turkey stood there wondering what he had ever done to deserve such wretched fate.

Then again, he's probably roasting in some oven or something. Perhaps awaiting to meet his death through heat exhaustion.

8. Now this turkey seems to be a little too well done here.

Of course, even though this turkey cake looks burnt, it's probably better to eat than the real thing.

9. Now I’ve never seen quite a turkey with elaborate tail feathers on its head.

Of course, this turkey seems to have a very colorful personality and possibly too much of the brown acid at Woodstock.

10. Sure turkeys are big, but they’re utterly helpless when surrounded by mice.

For God's sake, this turkey's feathers seem to resemble punk spikes. Also, what's with the creepy mice?

11. Even when gutted, plucked, stuffed, and baked, this turkey seems to be surprisingly good at yoga.

Of course, I'm quite sure that turkeys certainly don't have their legs stretched out like that. Still, doesn't look right for some reason.

12. Nothing says Thanksgiving than having a turkey being surrounded by tiny phalluses and turd flames.

Of course, this doesn't look like a turkey in as much as it resembles some weird angry bird's head about to explode.

13. Now this bird seems to be a little rambunctious.

Either this turkey is just overexcited over something, in panic mode, or just plain high on some LSD.

14. Perhaps this turkey is pining for the fjords.

"'E's not pinin'! 'E's passed on! This turkey is no more! He has ceased to be! 'E's expired and gone to meet 'is maker! 'E's a stiff! Bereft of life, 'e      rests in peace! If you hadn't nailed 'im to the perch 'e'd be pushing up the daisies! 'Is metabolic processes are now 'istory! 'E's off the twig! 'E's kicked the      bucket, 'e's shuffled off 'is mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin' choir invisibile!! THIS IS AN EX-TURKEY!!"

15. A rolling pumpkin gathers no vines.

Whereas this pumpkin cake seems to have a stem at the top of it that resembles a turd. Perhaps some creature just took a dump on it.

16. Oh great, I always wanted to have a Thanksgiving barbecued turkey dinner.

Of course, it doesn't really look a real turkey. Barbecued or otherwise. Still, are those real raw potatoes? Now that's strange.

17. Thanksgiving turkey or just a walking mutant turkey headed gingerbread man in a burning wheat field?

Seems like this cake decorator seems a bit too taken in with all this Christmas commercialism these days.

18. This turkey seems to be incredibly stuff.

This is why you should always chew with your mouth closed. Also, a lesson that you shouldn't confuse your TP with your TNT.

19. Now this turkey seems to have a very huge ass crack.

Is it just me or does anyone else think this turkey is mooning us?

Is it just me or does anyone else think this turkey is mooning us? Seriously, I think this bird should be arrested for indecent exposure.

20. May we wish you a “Happy Gooble Gooble Day.”

Seriously, how can one person managed to mispell "gobble" for God's sake?  It's not a hard word to spell. Even a kid could manage it.

21. Before The Nightmare Before Christmas there was The Nightmare Before Thanksgiving.

Of  course, The Nightmare Before Thanksgiving didn't do too well at the box office got terrible reviews. Besides, it managed to anger many in the Native American community that it was pulled from release.

22. Happy Thanksgiving from a black Ken doll in a speedo on a bear rug?

23. Happy Thanksgiving, from the Naughty Gingerbread Man.

Seems like Gingy got arrested of indecent exposure. Still, perhaps the baker seems to have gotten too caught up with Christmas.

Jesus Christ, turkey is people! This is one of the most disturbing turkeys I've ever seen.

Jesus Christ, turkey is people! This is one of the most disturbing turkeys I’ve ever seen. Still, why does cake even exist?

25. So this is Foghorn Leghorn’s brother from Colorado.

Sure while Foghorn Leghorn is a southern gentlemen, Highorn Leghorn relocated to the Haight Ashbury of San Francisco and got a little too into the drug scene and Rastafarianism.

26. This turkey is literally on fire.

Then again, its drumsticks seem to have an appearance of a couple of burning cigarettes. And what's with the smiley face?

Now that's just so utterly terrifying. Also, I wonder if that turkey is about to do something terrible.

Now that’s just so utterly terrifying. Also, I wonder if that turkey is about to do something terrible. I’d keep my eye on him, if I were you.

29. Eat this turkey, I dare you.

I'm sure that they cut off the turkey's head before they put it in the oven. Actually decapitation is the first thing they do with a turkey.

30. Now this is one bright and colorful turkey.

Seems more like a cross between one of those fold up party decorations and a turd to me. Also, seems to be made from a wedding cake sideways.

31. I wouldn’t worry since this turkey is just about half as good as it looks.

Then again, if it's half as good as it looks, then it must really taste like shit.

Wait a minute, are those drumsticks or spray painted poo made to look like drumsticks?

34. Finally, a decent looking Thanksgiving turkey cake.

Hey, what's with the Frosty the Snowman hat and scarf? Don't tell me they're trying to sneak Christmas upon us!

35. Now that is one huge turkey in this one.

Seems like this turkey doesn't seem too happy here, to be dessert. Still, a bit too realistic if you know what I mean.

36. How about the cake that combines Thanksgiving and football?

Wait, is that a turkey or a football with drumsticks? Seriously, this might not have been a good idea.

37. Things seem to be getting wacky at NBC and not in a good way.

Seems like NBC wants to get in the Thanksgiving spirit by replacing their peacock with a turkey. Doesn't seem to take since the turkey might be tripping on something.

38. Now here’s a great Thanksgiving cake straight from Jurassic Park.

This is not a turkey. It may be a velociraptor, Sesame Street puppet, or some kind of cartoon exotic bird. But it is not a turkey.

39. Now this turkey can’t seem to get enough of the fireworks.

Because he seems to be bombarded by them all the time. Also, I didn't know turkeys can fly. Wait a minute, domestic ones can't while wild ones, not too well.

40. I’ll some turkey breast meat, thank you very much.

Actually, that's not what I had in mind. Besides, what farmers putting into their turkeys these days which causes them to grow mammaries? It's unnatural!

Gobble Up These Thanksgiving Treats

kid-friendly-thanksgiving-table-treats-how-does-she3

I have to admit, while Halloween and Christmas posts for my blog are relatively easy to come up with, good Thanksgiving posts are rather hard to come up with. For one, it’s not a very fun holiday. Halloween pertains to costumes, scary stuff, parties, trick or treating, and what not. Christmas revolves around parties, presents, shopping, Santa, trees, wreaths, lights, pastries, nativity scenes and so many other fun stuff. Thanksgiving on the other hand, just focuses on a turkey dinner with one’s family as well as Pilgrims and Indians. Second, well, despite the first Thanksgiving being a celebration of thanks and friendship between pilgrims and Indians, we know how that turned out in the end (not good). Third, while Halloween and Christmas have great outlandish decorations and treats I could make fun of, I couldn’t say the same about Thanksgiving. And finally, let’s just say I usually get most of my ideas for Christmas posts during this time and can’t really apply them on my blog until Black Friday. Thus, I have to go with certain ideas as they come by. Considering that I did a post on Halloween treats back in October which met with great success, I decided to do a similar one on Thanksgiving treats in a similar fashion. However, while Halloween treats pertained to food directed to almost anybody, many of the following for Thanksgiving tended to be treat ideas catered for parents and teachers. In other words, these are treats people mostly make for kids. Since I’m the oldest of 24 grandchildren on my mother’s side, this wouldn’t be a problem in my family. Yet, it doesn’t meet the kind of amusement the Halloween ones do. Then again, they’re not as gross. So without further adieu, here is an assortment of Thanksgiving treats for your viewing pleasure.

1. As a breakfast, you can’t go wrong with a healthy fruit cornucopia.

Basically this consists of green grapes, strawberries, candy corn, and a waffle to wrap it all in.

2. As a dessert, why not make it just like your dinner with this Thanksgiving dinner cake?

I don't know about you but I can barely tell the difference between this and the real thing.

3. Nothing says Thanksgiving than a cornucopia from the cones.

I'm sure that's all lined with chocolate and filled with popcorn, pretzels, and jelly beans. More of a classroom treat than anything.

4. Happy Thanksgiving from the graham cracker table.

Man, it's amazing what you can do with toppings. Almost looks like a Thanksgiving dinner for a dollhouse or something. Yet, you have almond turkey, icing mashed potatoes, and sprinkle green beans.

5. And to go with your graham cracker table, here’s a chocolate waffle cookie pumpkin wagon with candy wheels.

Of course, you can only get waffle cookies from a store and they taste rather disgustingly sweet.

6. If you want to save space, here’s a nice little Thanksgiving cupcake dinner.

Now here we have three drumsticks, some peas and carrots, as well as mashed potatoes and gravy. Yet, with a side of a traditional chocolate cupcake with sprinkles.

7. Why don’t you try some of these bite sized turkeys out for size?

These turkeys must be cupcakes. Yet, they seem so convincing that you'd think scientists used genetic engineering to create a flock of very tiny turkeys running around.

8. Chow down to some cupcake corn on the cob.

Of course, real corn on the cob is out of season being November and all. Still, those corn kernels are jelly beans.

9. For those wishing you had brains, here’s are some scarecrow cupcakes.

I actually did a post on scarecrows in September. Yet, these look way too friendly to be Halloween treats if you know what I mean. Yet, I'm not sure they're scarecrows, kid show characters, or aliens.

10. For those wanting to use that leftover Halloween candy corn, perhaps you can make Oreo and Rice Crispy turkeys.

Of course, as it goes with real turkeys, there's a chance your kids might not find the feathers or head edible. If so, then perhaps tasty.

11. For vegetarians, here’s a nice veggie turkey platter without the tofu.

Now this is one colorful veggie bird as I've ever saw one. Wait a minute, is that lettuce any good? Also, isn't asparagus supposed to be out of season by now?

12. For those who don’t want to do the oreo turkeys I’m sure the cupcake ones will do much nicely.

Now I'm sure the kids might want to pluck off the feathers before eating these. As with the head, I'm not so sure.

13. For a more healthy snack, here’s some pretzel pear drumsticks.

Of course, the turkey part is pear and the bone part is pretzel. Still, you might need a knife to shove the pretzel in.

14. For pilgrim hats, you might want to go with chocolate striped cookies, marshmallows, and chocolate.

Of course, these hats are what you'd see on Pilgrim men. Let's just say the women's pilgrim hat treats would be too complicated to make.

Of course, these hats are what you’d see on Pilgrim men. Let’s just say the women’s pilgrim hat treats would be too complicated to make.

15. For more edible turkeys, here are cupcakes with M&M feathers.

Now these sugary turkeys are cute enough to eat. Still, by how they're photographed, they sure don't seem friendly to me.

16. To cover your pumpkin pie, why don’t you just put a turkey on it?

Of course, this person made a turkey by just tracing his or her hand and adding legs. Just like kids do with Thanksgiving craft projects in elementary school.

17. Now this turkey is getting quite fruity.

Of course this turkey is made from cheese, pear, strawberries, bananas, and grapes. And it's walking on waffle pretzels.

Of course this turkey is made from cheese, pear, strawberries, bananas, and grapes. And it’s walking on waffle pretzels.

18. Nothing can certainly go wrong with making pretzel turkeys.

Man, there are sure a lot of things you can do after dipping stick pretzels in chocolate is there? Also remove feathers before eating.

19. If you don’t like marshmallows, here are some Pilgrim hats from Reese’s cups.

Of course, you'll use the same kind of cookies as the Pilgrim hats with the marshmallows though.

Of course, you’ll use the same kind of cookies as the Pilgrim hats with the marshmallows though.

20. If you like wooden ships, you might want to use paper and toothpicks for blood orange slices.

For some reason, I feel that this treat might be more appropriate for Columbus Day than Thanksgiving. I mean the Pilgrims only traveled on the Mayflower while Columbus sailed on the Nina, Pinta, and Santa Maria.

21. Say hello to Larry the turkey.

Of course, being made from two cupcakes means you'll have to take him apart before you eat him. I mean you can't eat cupcakes with the wrapper still on them.

22. If you’re charged with the pumpkin pie but can’t afford the oven space, you might want to go with the bite size version.

Then again, these little pie crusts are made from mini waffles. So this might be a treat to make for those who can't be trusted with a knife.

23. If you don’t like Rice Krispies, perhaps using chocolate would be fine for your Oreo turkeys.

Of course, you'd still have to use candy corn. Yet, at least it'll have a great chocolate taste.

Of course, you’d still have to use candy corn. Yet, at least it’ll have a great chocolate taste.

24. Oh, look, a Rice Crispy treat pumpkin patch.

Of course, it would've been better if we could make them into Jack o' Lanterns but it's too late for that.

Of course, it would’ve been better if we could make them into Jack o’ Lanterns but it’s too late for that.

25. If you like Indians, perhaps you might want to make teepees from waffle cones.

Then again, this treat might be more suited for a Wild West occasion or some event in the Midwest because the first Thanksgiving took place in Massachusetts. Plains Indians lived in teepees and Eastern Woodland Indians don't. But of course, it would've been more difficult to make treats of wigwams and longhouses.

26. This fruit turkey is sure putting on a colorful display.

Almost reminds me of the NBC peacock and one of those edible arrangement displays. Still, I'm sure turkeys aren't that elaborate.

27. Now how would you like to gobble up this cake topper?

Of course, I know the cake is edible though I almost thought this was a craft project at first.

Of course, I know the cake is edible though I almost thought this was a craft project at first. Then again, maybe the turkey isn’t edible anyway.

28. Of course, it might be nice to have cookies resembling Thanksgiving dinner.

Still, I'm not sure if the veggie portion seems big enough. Not to mention, even at Thanksgiving dinner, it's very unlikely that two plates will contain a drumstick. This is especially true if a family's eating off of one turkey.

29. If you like cinnamon, you might want to put cinnamon sticks in a turkey cupcake.

Then again, I'm not quite sure if those are cinnamon sticks. Yet, I do like the peanut butter cup head though.

Then again, I’m not quite sure if those are cinnamon sticks. Yet, I do like the peanut butter cup head though.

30. May I present to you, turkey cookie on a stick.

Of course, this is made from white Oreos and peanut butter cookies. Still, I'm sure kids will love it.

31. Didn’t realize that turkey feathers were made from almonds.

This turkey is probably made from bread and cheese as far as I know. Still, he's sure strutting isn't he?

32. Get in the fall spirit with these chocolate acorns.

With peanut butter cookies, Hershey's Kisses, and chocolate chips, I'm sure kids will go nuts over these bite size acorns.

With peanut butter cookies, Hershey’s Kisses, and chocolate chips, I’m sure kids will go nuts over these bite size acorns.

33. Get in the Thanksgiving spirit with an ear of Indian cupcake corn.

Of course, it's like making the cupcake corn on the cob, but at least you can use more colored jelly beans as kernels.

Man, who knew that green fruit roll up, baked goods, icing, and Reese's Pieces could achieve this?

35. I now give you a pepper turkey.

Of course, since peppers are known to be spicy, you might not want to gobble this bird too fast.

Of course, since peppers are known to be spicy, you might not want to gobble this bird too fast.

36. Have kids learn about the Pilgrims with these Mayflower donuts.

Once again, I don't think wooden ship treats are as appropriate for Thanksgiving as they are for Columbus Day. Still, at least the masts are made from pretzels.

Of course, I'm sure that the feathers are made from fruit roll up. Still, pretty cute if you know what I mean.

38. For the colorful turkey muffin try one with apple slices.

Then again, muffins are technically cakes you eat for breakfast. Also, there's something unsettling about its grape head.

39. May I present to you a scrumptious turkey dinner on a cupcake.

Now that turkey cupcake is almost too real to be believed. Still, I wonder how people achieve that.

Now that turkey cupcake is almost too real to be believed. Still, I wonder how people achieve that.

40. Of course, this turkey is just a bag filled with corn you put in a microwave.

Now I'm sure that's a very appropriate thing to eat from during a Thanksgiving football game and other festivities.

Now I’m sure that’s a very appropriate thing to eat from during a Thanksgiving football game and other festivities.

41. Nothing says Thanksgiving like a turkey cake begging for mercy.

Sorry, Gobblekins, but Americans need to eat and turkey is the Thanksgiving entree. So no mercy for you, but please we're willing to hear last requests.

42. Wow your guests this Thanksgiving with this turkey appetizer platter.

Now this sure guaranteed to cause heart disease if eaten in excess. Still, love to see a cheesy turkey.

43. To make your food more appealing, how about a cornucopia bread.

Talk about edible decoration. Still, this is genius if you really think about it.

Now these are adorable pumpkins. Can also be used for Halloween or fall in general.

45. Gobble till you wobble this Thanksgiving with these chocolate turkey pretzel sticks.

Now these have pretzel sticks attached to cookies and candy corn. Still, pretty clever if I say so myself.

46. For your appetizers this Thanksgiving dinner, you can’t go wrong with this turkey cracker platter.

Yeah, there are a lot of turkey platters here in this post. Still, each offer a different assortment of food just the same.

Yes, this is another turkey veggie platter. But I think this one is a little more subdued than the last one I've shown.

48. For your Thanksgiving lunch this turkey day, how about some turkey pizza?

Now this uses pepperoni instead of actual turkey meat. Still, looks like a turkey to me.

49. If your dessert platter includes pumpkin pie, may I suggest some cookie pumpkin pie slices?

Yes, these are pumpkin pie slice cookies. Don't ask me how someone came up with this idea. Hope they don't taste like pumpkin spice lattes.

Just a bunch of cupcakes decorated with red, orange, and yellow icing. Still, quite cute.

Now this is called "Harvest Corn Nutter Butter." But I love how the corn kernels are Reese's Pieces.

Now this is called “Harvest Corn Nutter Butter.” But I love how the corn kernels are Reese’s Pieces.

52. Get in the autumn spirit with bread this Thanksgiving with these acorn and leaf buns.

Now it's said these were made with frozen bread dough. Of course, you can never have such bread things in my family.

53. For the kiddie appetizers, why not go with some mini turkey cheese balls?

Now these have almonds, cheese, carrots, and Ritz crackers. Still, they're quite adorable but in an ugly way.

54. Pumpkin pie cookies not enough for your Thanksgiving? Then try this cookie assortment.

Now these include a pumpkin pie slice, turkeys, and a male Pilgrim hat. Also, see some candy corn which is strange.

Now this sure looks like a turkey here. Not sure about the candy corn nose though.

57. Celebrate this Thanksgiving with these Pilgrim and Indian smores.

They might be friendly now. But wait until the white man gets land hungry after a few years.

They might be friendly now. But wait until the white man gets land hungry after a few years.

58. Nothing makes a Thanksgiving dessert platter like a chocolate cornucopia.

If you're having a Hunger Games party, perhaps you can stash it with some food and chocolate weapons. then again, doesn't really give the Thanksgiving spirit does it?

59. Nothing shows the joy of Thanksgiving like these Pilgrim cookies.

Seriously, why do these people have to make these puritanical colonialists so adorable? Makes you almost forget the colonial genocide on Native Americans does it?

60. Say happy Thanksgiving this year with these turkey cookie cupcakes.

Now these have cookies for heads and wings as well as candy corn feathers. Still, such an adorable combination.

Vintage Thanksgiving Advertising in the Days of Old

old4a_392_8

Now in case you don’t remember, Thanksgiving is a holiday that falls on the last Thursday of November between Halloween and Christmas. It’s the one in which was based off the large 1621 feast in present day Plymouth, Massachusetts between a group of English religious nuts in funny hats and buckled shoes and generous indigenous people who would later become victims of genocide. Still, you would know these groups as “Pilgrims” and “Indians” but if you want to know some of the details from the first Thanksgiving story, you might as well go to my movie history post on Colonial America (it’s the one with Daniel Day Lewis from Arthur Miller’s The Crucible). Anyway, kids make paper costumes and dress like them when they aren’t doing tracing their hands to make turkeys. Of course, it’s been a national holiday since the 1860s though, which might’ve been promoted by an editor of a ladies’ magazine. Anyway, this a time when American families all over the country gather together to give thanks and enjoy a meal consisting of turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and perhaps a lot of things that aren’t really good for you. On the TV lineup, you have the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade special in the morning followed by The Purina National Dog Show hosted by John O’Hurley. Both programs are on NBC and in my house. The afternoon is mostly followed with football and an evening with either Thanksgiving programming or Christmas specials. As for me, my nuclear family just invites my grandparents and possibly out of state relatives for steak and shrimp since my mom’s one of eight kids who are mostly seeing their in-laws. Then we have Thanksgiving dinner on the day after, though I’m not sure if I’m going to make it this year since it would Black Friday and I accepted a retail job for the holiday season.

Now when we think of vintage ads pertaining to Thanksgiving, we tend to imagine the Norman Rockwell image of a family gathered at a large table featuring a succulent turkey. Of course, with the Christmas ad cavalcade, that we have any Thanksgiving advertising at all. However, many of these ads I feature in this post don’t really conform to that wholesome family image and may feature dishes that may be as bad on the eyes as they are in your arteries. So without further adieu, here some old timey Thanksgiving ads that you make you glad you didn’t live at that time.

1. Nothing goes better with Thanksgiving dinner than Rhinegold Beer.

Because after this woman is done killing, skinning, gutting, basting, and cooking the turkey, she's sure as hell going to need a drink.

Because after this woman is done killing, skinning, gutting, basting, and cooking the turkey, she’s sure as hell going to need a drink.

2. On this Thanksgiving, may Buster Brown help positively channel your children’s budding homicidal tendencies.

After a decade, and you might see that little boy with the axe in a newspaper listed as a prolific serial killer. I mean he obviously enjoys killing animals which means he's probably a raging psychopath in the making. And does that girl have blood spilling from her hand?

3. Drink Budweiser for the first Thanksgiving was for corn.

For one, beer's made from hops, barely, and wheat, not corn. Second, what in the hell do Southwest Pueblo Indians have to do with Thanksgiving? The Indians at the first Thanksgiving were Algonquin for God's sake. And it took place in New England, not Arizona.

4. Like the Pilgrims, enjoy your Thanksgiving with Heinz’s Boston Baked Beans.

Now at least Heinz is better with geography than Boston. However, you need to understand that in 1621, the city of Boston didn't even exist yet! So the notion of the Pilgrims enjoying Boston Baked Beans is very much false.

Now at least Heinz is better with geography than Boston. However, you need to understand that in 1621, the city of Boston, Massachusetts didn’t even exist yet! So the notion of the Pilgrims enjoying Boston Baked Beans is very much false. Yet, there is a Boston in England though.

5. Nothing says Thanksgiving like super skinny model and four turkey dinners in the background.

Of course, the model here is encouraging women to buy knits that would help them cover the extra pounds they'd gain after eating a Thanksgiving dinner or two (if you count the in-laws).

Of course, the model here is encouraging women to buy knits that would help them cover the extra pounds they’d gain after eating a Thanksgiving dinner or two (if you count the in-laws). The model kind of reminds me as the bitchy ex-wife from My Name Is Earl if she wore attire from the 1960s.

6. Beer: The Thanksgiving beverage for the grownup table.

Guess you must be 21 years old to sit at the adult table in this family. Still, I guess the kiddies shouldn't disturb the adult family members while they're hammered on the Turkey Day booze.

Guess you must be 21 years old to sit at the adult table in this family. Still, I guess the kiddies shouldn’t disturb the adult family members while they’re hammered on the Turkey Day booze. And even Grandma gets a beer.

7. Try our new Campbell’s Turkey Noodle Soup.

Now turkey noodle soup is a dish people make with the leftover turkey bits after Thanksgiving. And it's much more healthy and hardy than whatever Campbell's shows here.

Now turkey noodle soup is a dish people make with the leftover turkey bits after Thanksgiving. And it’s much more healthy and hardy than whatever Campbell’s shows here. Still, a great taste of salty flavor. Mmmm…salt.

8. Butter always makes everything taste better even turkey in Canada, eh?

Now this is an ad for Thanksgiving Turkey from a Canadian company. Now Canada celebrates their Thanksgiving earlier. However, either way, a buttered turkey is bound not to be good for your cholesterol.

9. Whether it’s for chocolate cake, stuffed apples, and yams, marshmallows go well with everything.

Now I'm all right with having marshmallows in apples and cake. Yet, in a dish for sweet potatoes for dinner, well, that makes the Thanksgiving dinner on the Charlie Brown special seem fairly healthy by comparison.

10. For a finishing touch on your Thanksgiving dinner, here’s Maxwell Coffee.

Now I guess that none of the men at Thanksgiving won't be having any coffee, unless they're the designated driver. Most likely the coffee would be drank up by those who prepared the dinner in the kitchen.

Now I guess that none of the men at Thanksgiving won’t be having any coffee, unless they’re the designated driver. Most likely the coffee would be drank up by those who prepared the dinner in the kitchen.

11. Nothing makes a better Thanksgiving decoration than a cranberry scented candle.

Wait a minute, this is an ad for Helman's and the

Wait a minute, this is an ad for Hellman’s and the “candles” are supposed to be salads you have to eat? And there’s even a recipe for it listed. Now this is just fucked up. There’s really no way I’m going to eat food that’s being burned as a candle.

12. For a vegetable, go with Del Monte canned sweet corn because it’s soft on your grandpa’s dentures.

Now my family doesn't serve canned corn on Thanksgiving because it's out of season. However, the only reason why anyone in my house would buy canned corn is to donate to the food bank or to store in case of an apocalypse. Besides, canned veggies aren't really good for you anyway.

13. Try to make him taste the best with Campbell’s soup.

Of course, Campbell's soup is great for flavoring the turkey, if you crave for that great salty taste of its chicken broth. As they sat at Campbell's,

Of course, Campbell’s soup is great for flavoring the turkey, if you crave for that great salty taste of its chicken broth. As they sat at Campbell’s, “Mmmm…Salt.” Oh, I’m sure the pilgrim will strangle the turkey to death all the way home. Also, why does the soup have to be tomato for God’s sake?

14. For the black woman, use Du Pont cellophane to seal the freshness of the Thanksgiving food that you’re never going to eat.

You can figure the woman in this ad isn't going to eat the food she's wrapping up because her wardrobe screams,

You can figure the woman in this ad isn’t going to eat the food she’s wrapping up because her wardrobe screams, “maid.” Let’s just say the black maid is a rather demeaning black stereotype, if you know what I mean.

15. Get that down home feel, with a pack of Winston’s cigarettes.

Of course, they'll be giving the kiddies exposure to second hand smoke. Also, I'm sure that down home taste isn't worth the possibility of spending your last years with no hair and a respirator.

Of course, they’ll be giving the kiddies exposure to second hand smoke. Also, I’m sure that down home taste isn’t worth the possibility of spending your last years with no hair and a respirator.

16. Have your cranberry surprise on a platter as a salad or an appetizer.

Now using cranberry sauce and fruit salad as a salad is one thing. But using it as a dip on an appetizer platter, now that's just disgusting.

Now using cranberry sauce and fruit salad as a salad is one thing. But using it as a dip on an appetizer platter, now that’s just disgusting.

17. Buy your Big Ben Westclock to make sure the turkey is baked just right, for death.

I'm sure the little girl and her grandma are so excited with the turkey coming out of the oven. Probably because they could lace it with arsenic laced gravy. Yeah, this is the Thanksgiving that will kill practically everyone.

I’m sure the little girl and her grandma are so excited with the turkey coming out of the oven. Probably because they could lace it with arsenic laced gravy. Yeah, this is the Thanksgiving that will kill practically everyone.

18. Try McCormick for your pumpkin spice pie or pumpkin spice latte.

I hope those black splotches on the pumpkin pie are either spice or burn marks. Let's hope it's not mildew shall we?

I hope those black splotches on the pumpkin pie are either spice or burn marks. Let’s hope it’s not mildew shall we? Because that would be gross.

19. Don’t have time to cook on Thanksgiving? Well, why don’t you buy a TV dinner?

I don't know about you, but I don't think someone who buys a frozen TV dinner for Thanksgiving has anyone to celebrate the holiday with. Either that or can't cook. Also, TV dinners aren't very good for you either.

I don’t know about you, but I don’t think someone who buys a frozen TV dinner for Thanksgiving has anyone to celebrate the holiday with. Either that or can’t cook. Also, TV dinners aren’t very good for you either.

20. For actual Thanksgiving dishes, why don’t you go with borderline tupperware Pyrex?

Of course, I wonder how could this woman slave over cooking Thanksgiving dinner while still keeping herself so glamorous and her kitchen so tidy. I'm sure that women must envy her for those tasks seem impossible.

Of course, I wonder how could this woman slave over cooking Thanksgiving dinner while still keeping herself so glamorous and her kitchen so tidy. I’m sure that women must envy her for those tasks seem impossible.

21. Now join the veggie bandwagon with Lucky Strike cigarettes. It will give you a very good time.

If I were the turkey, I'd be as scared as hell of her running over me. Actually she kind of scares the hell out of me, too. Still, let's just say Lucky Strike was one of the more famous cigarettes that might lead you to an early death. Mostly because it had no filter.

22. Make Schlitz your Thanksgiving beer as you pull the wishbone.

Let's hope that this couple is married to each other because I think I know what happens after they pull the wishbone and put go to bed. Still, why so many Thanksgiving ads for booze?

Let’s hope that this couple is married to each other because I think I know what happens after they pull the wishbone and go to bed. Still, why so many Thanksgiving ads for booze?

23. Sorry, it’s dinner time, so just let us finish our beer.

While seeing guys drinking beer is something to be expected on Thanksgiving, I don't understand why they all have to be in suits. Seriously, on my family, a collared shirt and khakis are as formal as it goes.

While seeing guys drinking beer is something to be expected on Thanksgiving, I don’t understand why they all have to be in suits. Seriously, on my family, a collared shirt and khakis are as formal as it goes.

24. After Thanksgiving dinner, enjoy a smoke with Turkish tobacco.

Seriously, having a Thanksgiving smoke after dinner to spend quality time with your family? Sheesh. Still, the young guy's a soldier in WWI so that might the last time he takes a nice quiet smoke in any circumstance. Yet, there must be kids running around for sure.

Seriously, having a Thanksgiving smoke after dinner to spend quality time with your family? Sheesh. Still, the family who smokes together all dies of lung cancer.

25. Nothing says Thanksgiving greetings than a Western Union telegram.

Of course, while the creepy younger boy can't wait to eat, the girl doesn't seem too keen of eating a piece of steaming nightmare loaf. Oh, and Grandma forgives Dad for sending her to that rest home.

Of course, while the creepy younger boy can’t wait to eat, the girl doesn’t seem too keen of eating a piece of steaming nightmare loaf. Oh, and Grandma forgives Dad for sending her to that rest home.

26. Start your Thanksgiving with Cream of Wheat cereal.

Have to hand it to the offensive black stereotype Rastus to solve the world's hunger problems by carrying a turkey that could feed a small village and cereal.

Have to hand it to the offensive black stereotype Rastus to solve the world’s hunger problems by carrying a turkey that could feed a small village and cereal.

27. Drink some hot Dr. Pepper with lime for your Thanksgiving dinner.

Now I don't know about you, but I think hot pop is not just disgusting but bound to rot your teeth. Oh, wait a minute, they're cocktails.

Now I don’t know about you, but I think hot pop is not just disgusting but bound to rot your teeth. Oh, wait a minute, they’re cocktails.

28. Now this woman doesn’t need a man to kill her turkey, all thanks to Chesterfield cigarettes.

Still, I don't think cigarettes have ever been tools for female empowerment. In fact, quite the opposite. Seriously, those smokers who can bag their own turkeys today, certainly won't tomorrow.

Still, I don’t think cigarettes have ever been tools for female empowerment. In fact, quite the opposite. Seriously, those smokers who can bag their own turkeys today, certainly won’t tomorrow.

29. How about taking your Thanksgiving turkey leftovers and putting them in a jello bowl to serve as a casserole?

This is proof that what was once a delectable family dish of the 1950s will soon become the stoner food of the 21st century. Besides, jello is a dessert food, not something you have with dinner.

This is proof that what was once a delectable family dish of the 1950s will soon become the college kid food of the 21st century. Besides, jello is a dessert food, not something you have with dinner. Just why do they seem to put jello in everything?

30. So what if you overate that Thanksgiving dinner? Why don’t you have a bottle of Coke and double decker sandwich?

Then again, since Thanksgiving weekend pertains to rampant Christmas shopping with Black Friday and the first day of buck season, this meal might not be a bad idea.

31. Butter your Thanksgiving bird with Keyko.

I don't know about you but somehow this ad makes a scene of a mother basting a turkey in front of her kids unintentionally terrifying.

32. Feast on Ocean Spray cranberries and enjoy them as the Pilgrims did.

Then again, even if the Pilgrims didn't eat cranberries on the first Thanksgiving, we can be sure that the Native Americans ate them. So this ad isn't completely wrong. However, I'm sure they didn't consume them with gelatin though. Nor did they make sundaes from them.

33. For Thanksgiving dinner, why not make orange marshmallow yam-yums?

Seriously, this is disgusting and definitely not good for you. I mean marshmallows are basically candy for God's sake. Seriously, how the hell did people come up with such recipes?

34. Smoking, like Thanksgiving is an American tradition.

Now this seems like a rather decent Thanksgiving ad. However, just because Americans have been smoking for centuries doesn't mean it's a tradition that should be encouraged.

35. Seagram’s Crown Whiskey, a great beverage for your Thanksgiving dinner.

Now drinking beer on Thanksgiving is one thing. However, I'm sure whiskey is perhaps the kind of alcoholic drink you don't want at a family event. Still, this guy seems either hammered or can't resist the turkey smell.

36. For Thanksgiving in 1942, top off your turkey dinner with some Schenley Whiskey.

Good God. I know that's not Jimmy Stewart because he's in his thirties at the time and is on his WWII hiatus (which means he has yet to make It's a Wonderful Life and a three Hitchcock flicks). Yet, when I saw this it just as if Jimmy Stewart arrived to celebrate Thanksgiving 1942 from 20 or 30 years to the future in a time machine.

37. Behold, a turkey endorsing Schenley Whiskey as the Mayflower beckons in the distance.

Now I've seen turkeys before in cartoons and in real life. Now I can say that you may call wild turkey whiskey but that bird in the Pilgrim outfit depicted in the ad just looks like a rooster to me. More like a Rhode Island Red than Wild Turkey.

38. For you digestion, smoke Camels cigarettes with everything so have a pack on the table to keep you company at all times.

On second thought, you might want to go with antacid, Tums, or Pepto. Let's just say smoking tobacco can result in cardiovascular disease, cancer, emphysema, COPD, asthma, skin yellowing, and early death.

39. For those who can’t get a turkey for this Thanksgiving, why don’t you go with Spam Birds?
