Self-described Sender Inner “Mandi C.” is a “knitter” and says “I just finished knitting this sweater for a co-worker’s baby. I decided to try it on my cats. Westley-the orange cat purred the whole time he had it on. I had to fight the black cat Horus to wear it.” Ahnnn.

Wear Him Off, Keyboard Cat!

Now that Keyboard Cat is ready to play itself off to the Dusty Shelf of Internet Memes (say hello to Numa Numa Kid, won’t you?), relive its glorious fifteen minutes in the “Three Keyboard Cat Moon” t-shirt, a parody of the “Three Wolf Moon” t-shirt, thus cloaking your torso in an endless self-referential vortex of kitsch.

One Wife’s Private Torment

I’d heard about them on “Oprah,” and some of the girls down at Marcelle’s Salon made jokes about them, but nothing prepared me for the day my husband told me he was … a plushie.

“It’s just something I have to do,” he said, “it’s part of who I am.”  I tried to accept it, but the thought of Bob fantasizing about plush animals, even dressing up as one?  It all seemed so weird.  But with patience and counseling, we worked past our pain, and now our marriage is stronger than ever.

(Recipe based on the classic James Bond martini. More recipes here.)

Sender-inner Jessica L. writes: “Okay, here’s a strange one for you. But every time I look at these pictures I think how cute it is, so I thought I’d send it on in. It is a turkey made out of a pine cone who has clearly befriended a sprouted onion. Seriously, check it out. Or maybe I’m just strange.”

[shifty eyes] Thanks… [looks over shoulder]

Oh hey, I found the onions.

Yeah, it’s strange. But in a good butter duck or tree sweater way.

Behold a gaggle of color-coded Peeps riding multi-colored horses.

Even stranger is the text accompanying the submission: “These little guys deserve fun too.”

Um. OK. [shifty eyes in disbelief]

Katy M., unique. Very unique.

At last, something to make watching cable news bearable: “Happy Time” cuteness-in-picture.  Caution: May not be effective against Jim Cramer or Glenn Beck.

Wow, this is even better than Relax-O-Vision, Dan Z.
