Today's featured gift

Okay, this one is just awesome. It sells for $199 and is called a "Natural Stump Side Table."



IT'S A FUCKING LOG, PEOPLE!

The web site creatively notes that it comes "fully assembled" and (for those who feel guilty) is from "naturally fallen cypress trees."

To me, that's like saying your steak came from a cow that died of natural causes.

It's the ultimate in low-maintenance houseplants.

Naturally fallen? So for that money you don't even get an ARTISENAL Side Table?

It's better than bad, it's good!

(but is it artisan?)
Thanks for the laugh!

A Ren and Stimpy production:

What rolls down stairs
alone or in pairs,
and over your neighbor's dog?
What's great for a snack,
And fits on your back?
It's log, log, log

It's log, it's log,
It's big, it's heavy, it's wood.
It's log, it's log, it's better than bad, it's good."

Everyone wants a log
You're gonna love it, log
Come on and get your log
Everyone needs a log
log log log

Good grief, come out to the Oregon Coast, I'm sure we can find you one for free or at the most, dirt cheap.

He he, log....

Came for the Ren and Stimpy reference, leaving satisfied.

Speaking of Ren Hoek, I wonder how many times a day Dr G, Annie and Mary think "You Eeeeeediot!"

I live in the middle of a National Forest. I am going to be rich if a lot of people are stupid!

And I am sure it was made by artisans.

Anne said...

I'm glad I didn't have to be the one to make the Ren and Stimpy reference. That would've made me quite sad.

With authentic knothole accents!

It doubles as fuel in hard times

Does it come pre-loaded with termites?
It does double as a scratching-post for cats, you know.

repeat- nothing is better than log.

For that money, they could've made it into an unupholstered ottoman, or end-table with pullout drawer. However, I think I'd be glad they didn't think legs were necessary.

I need something like that to pound metal on, but for $200? I can pick something up by the side of the road when the trees start taking out our power lines this winter.

Everyone knows it's log.
