The Existential Coloring Book is packed to the gills with animal-people paired with dark quotes from philosophers and other people worried about the essential dark unknowability of the universe.
It's also full of thoughtful yet melancholy activities! From an existential connect-the-dots to a page where you can draw what Kierkegaard is thinking about, you'll being sighing with joy as you work on them.
This looks like a coloring book for kids, but it's probably not a good idea to give it to one, unless they're really smart and more than a little weird.
This twenty-four page, 8" x 10-1/4" book is a great gift for philosophy majors or anyone else overwhelmed with a feeling of hopelessness. It features quotes from existential thinkers, mysterious pictures to color and mildly depressing activities.
We’re going to blow your mind a bit, but if you think about it, Bigfoot walks around naked. Sure, his fur makes it look like he’s all covered up, but he’s a forest-living, hippy nudist. Our new Dress-Up Bigfoot comes with 28 reusable vinyl cling pieces of clothing and accessories that you can use to dress Bigfoot to suit all sorts of moods and occasions.
Standing 16” tall and made of laminated cardboard, Dress-Up Bigfoot makes a handsome desk accessory or holiday decoration. Dress and redress Bigfoot year-round, all the clings are reusable. Bigfoot comes with lederhosen, beer hat, boxers and so much more! You can dress Bigfoot to your whim, but we’re partial to him in his tighty-whities.
Here's a video demonstration of how to dress up Bigfoot:
Everybody has a cheap relative and death can be expensive. You know when they die they'd be mad at you if you spent thousands of dollars on a fancy urn! That's why we made our Modest Urn for the frugal.
This metal can, which mysteriously resembles a coffee can, comes with a sticker sheet so you can customize it for the deceased. It's 5" tall, 4" diameter and has a volume of 62.8 cubic inches.
In addition, there's a reusable interior metal seal and an exterior plastic cap to keep the ash from falling out. Includes a fill-in-the-blanks eulogy for easy mourning.
We even made a version of the urn just for pets.
Why yes, these are photos of President Obama shaking hands with someone wearing one of our Horse Head Masks. This awesomely surreal moment occurred on Tuesday night, July 8, 2014, as the President was greeting people along the streets of downtown Denver, CO.
Proving once again that there's no telling where our Horse Head Mask might show up next, the photo above was taken by Jewel Samad and the one below by New York Times photographer Doug Mills.
Of course, it didn't take long for The Internets to react in hilarious fashion, which is how we arrive at this amazing third photo.:

Proving once again that our Horse Head Mask can pop up just about anywhere, we recently spotted one in this funny video created by Russian videographer Michael Tivikoff, a.k.a. Mr. TVCow. Entitled "How Gamers Eat Their Food", the video demonstrates how people who play different video games (or indeed the characters from those games) have wildly different (and silly) ways of eating.
But we think the best part is that the demonstrations are presented to a person wearing everyone's favorite creepy Horse Head Mask, who listens attentively while munching on a leafy salad:[via Kotaku]
Joe J Thomas, voice actor and creator of the blog Joe's Dump, recently proposed an awesome new system of measurement, The Rubber Chicken Standard. What with the Metric System failing to take off in the US and his opinion that the Imperial System isn't very intuitive, Joe argues that it's high time we all agreed on a new standard of measurement:
I’ve chosen the Archie McPhee Deluxe Rubber Chicken as a new standard of measurement. The reason is simple: every culture knows what a chicken is, and a rubber chicken is easier to use because it won’t spoil.
One rubber chicken is the basic unit of measurement. (How many chickens tall are you?) But Joe goes on to propose the use of a "Kilo-Chicken" (kc) for measuring really large objects (It’s the size of 1,000 Rubber Chickens):
And the "Micro-Chicken" (uc) for measuring really tiny things:

Tin cans are for average cats, this one is silvery. While it's true that your cat would eat out of a tin can if it had to, surely it would prefer to dine from a silver-plated ceramic Luxury Cat Dish. The 5" diameter bowl is the perfect food container whether you're serving caviar, seafood-flavored kibble or wet food. It holds 10 fl. oz., which is a lot of caviar!
Speaking of caviar, the Luxury Cat Dish is also food safe for humans, so feel free to use it for cereal in the morning or get down on all fours and chow down besides your kitties. They may appreciate this so much that they'll even acknowledge that you exist. (Sorry, no guarantees there.)
