I was going to make some tasteless comment about how I was going to buy this for someone for Christmas, but that would be wrong.

Green Fish said...

Oh my sweet Jesus Christ!!! Quiet breathtakingly WTF. Someone went to a lot of trouble to make that.

Liz, be honest. Is this really something you bought?! I could see you owning this item, and... I could see you carving this out of a single block of clay, using a toothpick!

Slyde said...

wow, that would go PERFECT with my Mussolino Coasters......

Elizabeth McClung said...

see, anything that offensive I always put just on the borderline of art - like the stripper in town who used to dress up as Ernie and strip to the theme song to "The seaseme Street" - is it super offensive, really creative, really creepy, or all three?

EMc, however it may be categorized, it is not an item which deserves promotion.

Man, Charlie Chaplin looks really pissed off to be on that tea pot.

Stef said...

See, even if he wasn't one of the most evil men in history, that thing is totally disturbing on its own merits!

I just want to know who decided that would make a cute TEAPOT - futhermore the fact that someone hasn't smashed it to bits by now makes it that much more curious. (But the thought of pouring boiling water in it appeals.)

Sesame street stripper? I'd pay money to see that. Guess that might be the point.

Yoga - not promoting it exactly - just saying - WTF? My exhibiting it may be constrewed as tasteless but I never really claimed to have taste in the first place. I did not, however, intend to offend. So if that was the result I apologize.

Green Fish said...

Don't apologize Liz. Holding the ridiculous and profane (and this thing is both) up for satire is both necessary and noble.

elizabeth said...

oops "Construed"

Thanks little fishy. (moi? Noble? I can dig it)
