Because nothing says "Merry Christmas" like...

...a Turbo-Groomer (R) Lighted Nose-Hair Trimmer.

Somehow my name ended up on the mailing list for the Sharper Image catalog. I have never purchased anything from the Sharper Image. I am not likely to in the future. However, out of sheer curiosity, I decided to thumb through the catalog. It was worth it for a good chuckle.

The headline on the very last page is "Gifts for the men you look up to..." and the product featured there is--you guessed it--nose hair trimmers.

Because who wants to look up into a nostril forest of nose-hair? Give them a turbo lighted nose-hair trimmer, and then you won't have to. Apparently this is the latest in self-serving gift giving.

Now that, my friends, is funny. Sad, but funny.

Food for Thought

"When I look back it reminds me to thank Him.
When I look ahead it reminds me to trust Him.
When I look around it reminds me to serve Him."

Subject-O-Matique: Did You Know?

Hey all you Yahoo! Mail users. Did you know about this amusing feature of the new Yahoo! mail? When you've got a tab open to compose a new message, there are fields for "To:", "Cc:" and "Subject:" with corresponding buttons to the left. The button for To and Cc give you a pop-up window with access to your contacts, while the Subject button activates the "Subject-O-Matiqe", a random subject line generator that churns out some entertaining results, such as

Waterbeds for Quadrupeds
Early bird gets the worm. But what about the early worm?
Nobody deserves a mime, Buffy.
Do watch dogs know they're working?
chai tea vs. tai chi
Sorry I missed you. Stand still next time.
There's a great juggler on the radio tonight!

Okay, well, I'm amused by this, and since I just happened to discover this by accident I thought I'd share the random subject love. Enjoy.
