A Trip To The SkyMall – Part 2

When I fly, I usually take the time to flip thru the Sky Mall catalogue.  For those of you unfamiliar with the Sky Mall, it's really a catalogue of catalogues, with all kinds of crap you don't really need, covering the gamut from stainless steel wallets to keep people from reading the RFID chips in your credit cards to a cake mold for making an 8 inch cupcake.

Today's entry:

The Remote Controlled Tarantula

Skymall-02

Oh, man, a remote controlled tarantula would be AWESOME!  To have it dart out from under the TV stand and scurry across the living room, would be EPIC!

But, there are a few kinks in that plan:

  1. It would be single use, since Cora would smash it into circuits and servos within seconds, and therefore, a waste of $30.
  2. My step daughter would smash ME into a pile of bloody pulp.
  3. I would be "stranded all alone in the gas station of love, and I'd have to use the self-service pump" for the foreseeable future. [VIDEO]

And none of these would deter me nearly as much as this thought:

"Payback"

I couldn't buy it because I'd never be able to get close enough to the box to take it out.

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
Why American men should boycott American women

http://boycottamericanwomen.blogspot.com/

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don't know how to cook or clean, don't want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!

I came to leave a comment then got sidelined by the comment above me 'boycottamericanwomen'. Phew, that's not me then.

Anyway, my 4 year old has wanted one of these remote controlled tarantulas for a long time. I will keep saying no until he is old enough to go to the shop and buy one himself.

Boy, boycottard is hitting all the blogs lately. Not mine yet. YET. As an American woman, I'm sure he'll find me soon enough.

Can I just say that the advertisement has a few words (urticating, chelicerae??) that you just never find in most magazines?

J.J. in L.A. said...

I wonder if anyone ever buys stuff from those magazines. I've seen some pretty interesting stuff, but never anything I actually wanted to own.

Cora (and Gwen) would seek revenge if you ever tried Mr. Tarantula on them. Bwahahaha!!!

And I see BOYCOTT boy is at it again. He doesn't show any followers on his page and there's no way to comment. I guess he can dish it out but he can't take it.

Oy. That boycott buffoon is stinking up MY HUBBY'S blog too?! Unbefreakinglievable.

As for the spider, just say no, Scope. Just say no.

SkyMall could be a Christmas list for me....so much incredible stuff I didn't realize I needed. I haven't seen anything as cool as the remote controlled spider though!
