Attention former LAKESIDE PRODUCTS customers…

September 24, 2014

I remember buying “Naked Lady Pens” and “Fortune Fish” along with many other items, from a magazine ad Lakeside placed, in like 1972? I resold these items to other kids in the neighborhood. Nowadays I probably would have been expelled from school instead of merely having my pens confiscated.

Here it is 40 years or so later, and I am still at it. I bought the remaining stock of Lakeside Novelty’s inventory when Joel retired, and more recently the stock of a joke shop that closed in Lincoln City, Oregon. We offer discount prices for retail customers, and steep quantity discounts for casual resellers and institutions. (If you want LARGE quantities, that can be arranged also!)… Read the rest here

Bob has lost his edge

April 27, 2015

BobWirePinWe get offers for all kinds of stuff that lives in the sometimes seedy world of “novelty merchandise”. This one doesn’t even make any sense. What the hell is “Bob Wire”? I clipped it and added a snarky comment, it’s perfect for Pinterest.… Read the rest here

I need tech support to pee?

April 11, 2015

blogwootbidetI’ve seen a lot of useless gadgets come up on woot.com, this bidet toilet seat is one of them. Maybe they are discontinuing this model in favor of a bluetooth model you control with your cellphone? This one looks like my fat butt could unexpectedly activate features I am not ready for. … Read the rest here

I lost the key, you can start it with a nail…

My sister is planning to put an old truck on Craigslist. Our dear departed brother had it for years, but sentimentality and nostalgia only goes so far. I like to think that Buddy would like to see it go to someone who will fix it up. My neighbor restored a Chevelle, and anytime he is anywhere near that thing he has a big grin on his face.

I’m not into that, the whole scenario reminds me of this old C.W. McCall song…

I found this little roadrunner novelty souvenir at a thrift store a while back.

A small roadrunner

A small roadrunner

He’s a cute little guy… just a little roadrunner doll, made in Japan. At least, I hope it’s just a doll. I can’t imagine capturing and going through whatever the taxidermy process is on a baby roadrunner, would be economical.… Read the rest here

I was sort of afraid of my sister’s dogs to begin with. I mean, I have heard the stories… They have been known to consume entire loafs of bread in one gulp…. They gnaw on household appliances. My sister once spent an entire night waiting for 3 D cell batteries to come out the other end, something you would expect from a robot dog.

Even so, I wasn’t prepared for what she posted on our myfamily.com site today;

Doris is watching you

March 17, 2015

CarolinOmahaWatchesWent to look up a pesky spammer on 800notes.com, and everyone says it was a home security telemarketer, except this lady;

“Our evil psycho neighbor, Doris W. of Omaha, NE has been calling us and harassing us for 3 years
by using all kind of phone numbers on her cell phone & then hung up immediately.

A slow boat to Australia?

So how long DOES it take for a package to get from the left coast of these United States, to Australia? Let’s ask the wise old owl.… Read the rest here
