Holiday Season Catalogues

Pity the postal worker at this time of year as the holiday catalogues triple back strain and make mailboxes moan with their weight.

We also mourn the many trees that gave their spirits so that we can choose between 8 different nut and cheese logs (oh the Alanis Morissette irony of it all).

When we're past all that, though, we can enjoy some of the more perverse things offered for your consumption.

For instance, a pasta company makes noodles in a vast array of shapes to be used for fundraising. My wife pointed this one out to me:

She asked, "Haven't you always wanted to eat a cheerleader?" Though I can't imagine using that marketing angle around the office.

This one was accompanied by a vague whirring sound that seemed to emanate from the Northwest:

Kurt Cobain Action Figure

Now they need to make one of him spinning in his grave. You wonder who gave this company the rights to make something like this, too. I just may have to have one.

Was Kurt really a lefty? If so, I don't know how that slipped my notice.

Yup. I wonder how many other great musicians are/were. There's Hendrix of course, and McCartney.
