It's as if they're mad at their protuberances.

That's priceless.

And to think some poor lobster gave up his claw in remembrance of 09/11.
We should all make the same sacrifice.

21. I didn't see it, only heard about it
Edited on Fri Jan-28-05 09:50 PM by suegeo
When the pope visited America one time, someone was selling "The pope" lawn sprinklers, with the water coming out of the little holes in the pope's stretched out hands.

On Edit: Oh, and the pope moved too. The sprinkler was on some kind of rotation device so the pope sprinkled water over large sections of the lawn.

23. The interior sets on CBN
Paul and Jan's show. It's like poor white trash suddenly came into alot of money, bought some tacky ornate 19th century furniture and covered it with gold leaf.

29. True story
A few years ago I got sick of my family (siblings, nieces & nephews) not giving me their Xmas lists in time for me to ship out what they wanted. Soooo, I gave them an ultimatum. No list by Dec. 1st-you get a Chia pet. Guess what happened. Go on. Guess.

BTW, my wee niece was the only one who appreciated the kitty chia. :evilgrin:

31. Just tonight at Gibralter Trade Center ( the local fleamarket). I would
have to say it was a toss up between the lighted and framed, moving waterfall pictures, the black lacquer living room table set (mirrored top of course) or the fiber optic Jesus bleeding heart portrait. You pick. :hi:

35. there woudl be these cheap oil paintings and they had miniature
lights in various spots around the painting. My grandmother had one and she thought it was the greatest thing this side of the Mississippi River. She closed the drapes and then showed me how it looked lit. I was 12 or something when she got it and even then I thought wow is this bad.
