I’m a Bad Idea Guy

My gut told me this was some sort of weird, fill-in-the-blanks corporate freebie (the different font size on “I’m a Syracuse China” was a dead giveaway), and sure enough:

…Apparently the idea wasn’t that great though, because the company shut down in 2009. (I’m guessing we can blame millennials for that. Who will your next victim be, milenials.)

re: My Life, Completed

No new yardsales yet (in fact, I haven’t been to a single one since I found naked Batman and “homemade”  bread back in October), but I wanted to bring to light something that came in the mail the other day. Something that—I’m not overstating things when I say this—will change my life forever. Take a look:

YES YES YES YES YES YES YESSSSSSSSSSS! Forget that stupid statue; I now have, nailed to my hot little wall, an original “pear of sheep” art masterpiece, courtesy of my friend Shannon, wife of my friend Nathaniel, fellow GameCola writer and co-proprieter of the geek blog Exfanding Your Horizons. I was speechless when I opened the box; I took such a sharp intake of breath that I thought it might stab right through my esophagus, killing me before I got to raise my fun meter by just spam-admiring it all day. This is just beautiful. I’m not sure I’ll be able to tear myself away from it long enough to go to any actual yardsales this season; I don’t want to leave it alone.
