*because the lack of a catchy title was holding up progress

We broke out of the deep freeze yesterday!

I have already indicated my concern over the word choice in the #recycleyourperiodpad extravaganza, but this ad campaign does not impress me much more.
Thanks to the Monkey in the Field for this gem
Don't get me wrong, I realize that my teenage son may be amused by the notion of dropping his pants for "underwareness", but I am pretty sure he is not the target audience. I also sort of appreciate the attempt at humor, but let's face it, is anybody really finding a loss of their bladder control amusing?

Let's ask this little guy...
I passed this little elf on a shelf at my great aunt's house earlier today. I found myself offended on his behalf by what the Elf on a Shelf empire has become. I suppose you could say he is a tiny bit creepy….NO…WAIT….that word is reserved for………..
Creepy baby monkeys! Finally, FINALLY, a moderately priced creepy monkey that is also a toy!!! No more of that "this is a fine collectible" b.s. I am going to leave it up to you to decide if the question is a) Did she buy it? or b) How many did she buy?

Today is the day that The Unraveling of Mercy Louis is being released! Let's make today the final day to enter the drawing to win a copy.

  1. My son had a beautiful stuffed monkey when he was little. Santa had brought it to him. He threw him down repeatedly one day when we were out and said he didn't want him anymore. So we took the monkey the next year to a Bring a Gift supper for those less fortunate. I had Bubba donate his monkey and I donated a tennis racket I no longer used.

  2. That monkey is truly hideous. Loss of bladder control is amusing until it happens to you. When I need to sneeze, I have to stop walking and press my thighs together.


  3. Remember Horace, your stuffed monkey???

  4. From the way that Elf is crossing his legs, it looks like he'll be needing a box of those man absorbents.

  5. Brrrrrrr! That money gives me the heebie jeebies.

  6. That elf looks like he has a jalapeno on his head! And yes, that monkey is downright scary, but not as scary as the idea that hundreds of people might be walking along in their underware, if you know what I mean!

  7. Drop your pants for underwareness? I don't get it. Must be a male thing. Oh my, the eyes on that monkey! Straight out of the Twilight Zone. Happy pi day!

  8. Oh part of me is so hoping you did buy several of those creepy monkeys!! just imagine someone's face when they open it as a gift! ha
    my girls would probably love them, so I'm gonna need 2. :)

    why are we dropping our pants? I'm gonna have Google this one. Will I regret it? LOL
