WTF Wednesday: Thriftstore Art, Kids’ Discipline, Teddy Bear Ashtray

Hello Wednesday! Hello WTF!

Feast your eyes on some thrift store art. 

The boob area could use a little revisiting. 

Lookout! Do the guardian angels have large talons?

How to discipline without feeling guilty. Step 1: get a playpen. Step 2: repeat to yourself that children are just big hamsters. Step 3: remember you are the adult and give me a fucking break. 

This is probably my all time favorite Christmas carol. No WTFing Pavarotti’s O Holy Night.

Some WTFing for the photo of the kids’ faces.  Pavarotti looks good, but the kids look sedated. 


Last but not least, what better receptacle for your cigarette ashes than a family of teddy bears?

WTF Wednesday: Craft Fails, Crochet Pants, Wrestling

Hellllllo WTF Wednesday! 

Let’s begin with a few major Craft Fails.  A couple of weeks ago, the lovely Jessica over at A Day in the Life of One Girl ran a contest and I was the lucky winner of a funny book called Craft Fail: When Homemade Goes Horribly Wrong.

This book is WTF Wednesday come to life. It shows pictures of beautifully done crafts, next to wretched attempts to copy those crafts. (See, eg, Jessica’s spray painted high heels). 

Here are a couple examples of the ridiculousness.  Shark Week Cupcakes. Ummmmm? 



Bad Bunny Cake. Errrrr?

 And here are some Craparons. 

I would still eat them! It’s not all baking – there are people trying to make hats, wreaths, candles, and more, all with very little success. It’s a sweet, lighthearted book that would make anybody smile. 

Moving along to some more crocheted glory from the Good Housekeeping Needlecraft Magazine 1973. 


Interlocking Stitch Pants! 


Wonder why crochet knit swimsuits never took off. 


Perfect for the beach – afghan blanket with a drawstring waist. Why is she stepping on the fence?

I love the fuzzy look!

Here’s a story out of Florida about a man who took his clothes off in a CVS and tried to sleep on some dog beds. I think we can all relate to that.

Last but not least, this is a reader-submitted bit WTF-ery coming from LindZ. The picture is NSFW, so click if you wish: some kind of wrestling thong ‘underwear.’

WTF Wednesday: Castration, Swans, Opera

It’s the last WTF Wednesday of the year – WTF?!

Let’s begin with a billboard on Tunnel Road in East Asheville. 

dont castrate your best friend


Don’t Castrate Your Best Friend! NoCastration.org. I will let you draw your own conclusions on this. I do see some validity. But then again…WTF?! 

Here is a fun golf game complete with 6 hazard trees. The only thing you need is a club! 

Anyone care for a mutant chicken wing? 

mutant wing

She looks way too happy to be giving a flu shot. 

Here’s a lovely enormous beige swan sculpture which also holds your pens. 

Two pens. 


A wonderful 4 CD set of Opera for People Who Hate Opera. 

Surround sound, because if there’s one thing you want when you’re listening to music you hate, it’s to be completely surrounded by the music you hate. 

Last but not least is Sugarrascal. She ran through the house with the toilet paper still attached to the wall, chewed a little pile into confetti, and finished with some chewing on Pouncey’s food bowl on a dog bed.

    WTF Wednesday: Thrashing, Churning, and Caroling

    Happy Wednesday! Happy WTF!

    Let us begin with a question to modern society – when did it become acceptable (mandatory?) to wear head to toe black and only black? Every piece of clothing and luggage these people were wearing was black. 

     I know I dress like a pinata, but come on.

    Here’s some lovely hotel art signed by the photographer – Janet van Arsehole.


     Moving along to perennial favorites – 60’s record albums!  The Thrasher Brothers – 

     Are Coming Your Way!


    And Are Turning it On!

    These people are seriously churning butter.

    And The Vicksburg


     In Nashville, in white shoes, next to a river.

    This looks like an interesting book. 


    Gotta read it to find out which part.

    Lastly some holly jolly holiday decorations.

    Pretty much sums up my feelings about the holidays.


     Are you caroling, or are you barfing to death? Hard to say!
