I've seen some stupid products before but I'm pretty sure this is right up there at the top of the list.
For the ultimate wacky holiday gift this year you can make your favorite person into a "stuffed animal." Scary.
Of course this also puts a new spin on the VOODOO concept so I can also totally imagine making this idea even more perverse than it already is:
1) Get one made of your "favorite" boss man and you can take him to the office for a few laughs. Can you imagine where he might end up or what might get done to him once you all have your way? Imagine "Charlie" getting pinned up on the dart board or doing the cubicle rounds. Might be a great outlet and very cathartic for everyone. Poor Charlie... he's a DEAD MAN.
2) My mom is the type to get "head shots" done of herself at really cheesy photography studios and then get then blown up on canvas to "gift" to family members. A "Mary Jane" doll might just put me over the edge but again- going down that cathartic path idea: had I had one of these growing up I could have made her more "available" for the safe sex and body image conversations we never had.
3) Have your favorite person made into a stuffed doll....
Ok- can you see where i am going with this? It's just so wrong that I am gonna stop...
4) I have a hard enough time waking up in my own body every day let alone waking up to a "stuffed" me. WHY WOULD YOU EVER? But I do know a few people that are so full of themselves they would probably think this was brilliant! Seriously though... gives a new meaning to "inner child" and if I was not busy beating the stupid thing I could cuddle it in my arms and sooth my wounded "inner child" in a much more tangible and completely off to the nutter house way.
You won't hear them advertise any of the above ideas but that's why I get paid the big bucks ;)
As always I appreciate any feedback, comments, or general cries of outrage.
