WTF Wednesday: Humping Seals, Smoking Snorkelers, Driving Dogs

Good day, Wednesday. Good day, WTF.

The pickins are rather slim this week as I spent several days in Tallahassee for a sweet 6 year old’s birthday and haven’t hit the thrift like usual. 

Here is a princess castle cake that Kevin and I decorated. It may not look exaaactly like the one in the video, but it did not fall over. 

hey we tried

Next we have a charming story from the BBC.  Seals discovered having sex with penguins. (warning, video is graphic – One seal eats his penguin mate).

http://www.bbc.com/earth/story/20141117-why-seals-have-sex-with-penguins

Antarctic scientists have recorded at least 4 instances of this behavior – the only times pinnipeds (mammals) have been known to attempt mating with birds.

Jesus Christ Mother Nature, WTF?!

Here are a couple of dolls.

Research has shown that old couples look alike, but this is pushing it. 

Next up, what better place to store your hot water bottle and Advil? 

Here is a full page ad for Newport Cigarettes in the 1977 issue of Country Style magazine. 

Snorkeling and cigarettes go together like seals and penguins. Why bother, indeed.

Now for a couple of photos sent to me by my brother.  I am including his captions. 

Ok, you can drive this time.


So I was thinking maybe have Chinese for dinner tonight honey…what do you think?

trucker hat bonanza

while thrifting last week i came upon a bin chock full to the point of overflowing with vintage 70s and 80s mesh and foam trucker hats. 

it was clearly the collection of one man.  a man who loved baseball caps. he may have had an obsession. 

there were 58 of them, a few of them have doubles, 95% were in unworn brand new deadstock condition.

i’ve already sold a handful, but you can see photos of the fronts of the entire original collection here: 70s 80s vintage trucker hats

i think it’s a fascinating snapshot of a human being. 

what did he do for work?
