Superglue Fixes Everything

The story behind the breaking and super gluing of the Tutenkamen mask sounds like something out of a sitcom. Unfortunately it really happened.

Nose Pore Blocker Hanabijin


The "Nose Pore Blocker Hanabijin" (spotted over at Book of Joe) promises to prevent the formation of ugly nose pores. First you cool the thing in a refrigerator for 30 minutes. Then you put it on your nose, whereupon it will "tighten and block off the pores, preventing dirt from getting inside and turning you into someone with a beautiful nose."

It kinda reminds me of the Trados Nose Shaper from 1916 (that I posted about way back in 2010), although the two things were designed for different purposes.

One of These Things Is Not Like the Others

You recall perhaps the full-size rubber mask of the mystery half-wit? Well, here he is again, as a hand-puppet, inexplicably consorting with legit Disney characters. The manufacturers must have loved that design.

Original ad here.

Triple Play


She claims she did this to make herself unattractive to men, not for money and attention. Sure she did, what do you think?
