Three Wolf Moon tshirt: magical powers will be yours

Order yours today from Amazon for anywhere from $9.14 – $15.59.  Read one satisfied customer’s review:

This item has wolves on it which makes it intrinsically sweet and worth 5 stars by itself, but once I tried it on, that’s when the magic happened. After checking to ensure that the shirt would properly cover my girth, I walked from my trailer to Wal-mart with the shirt on and was immediately approached by women. The women knew from the wolves on my shirt that I, like a wolf, am a mysterious loner who knows how to ‘howl at the moon’ from time to time (if you catch my drift!). The women that approached me wanted to know if I would be their boyfriend and/or give them money for something they called mehth. I told them no, because they didn’t have enough teeth, and frankly a man with a wolf-shirt shouldn’t settle for the first thing that comes to him.

I arrived at Wal-mart, mounted my courtesy-scooter (walking is such a drag!) sitting side saddle so that my wolves would show. While I was browsing tube socks, I could hear aroused asthmatic breathing behind me. I turned around to see a slightly sweaty dream in sweatpants and flip-flops standing there. She told me she liked the wolves on my shirt, I told her I wanted to howl at her moon. She offered me a swig from her mountain dew, and I drove my scooter, with her shuffling along side out the door and into the rest of our lives. Thank you wolf shirt.

Pros: Fits my girthy frame, has wolves on it, attracts women
Cons: Only 3 wolves (could probably use a few more on the ‘guns’), cannot see wolves when sitting with arms crossed, wolves would have been better if they glowed in the dark.

I suspect the shirt may have been targeted by some merry pranksters.  Or maybe I lack faith in the power of the 3 Wolves?  Either way, there are 100’s of funny reviews here.  Check them out.

Thanks to Pye for tipping us to this fantastic product.

Retro Advertising: Cherry Coke commercial from 1985

February 17, 2009

I remember when Coca Cola started selling Cherry Coke in 1985.  I loved it instantly.  I still can’t get enough Cherry Coke.  Mmmmmmmmmm……..cherry-syrup-flavored cola.

Painful? Definitely. However, this Southwest Airlines rap from the 80’s begs to be seen.

It’s so terrible that it’s almost beautiful. In a very, very sick way. You must at least watch the end. Quite a finish…..

**Update**  I just watched this clip again.  I hate myself.

There aren’t words to describe the awesomeness contained within this one Direct TV commercial…

This creepy/cute tea commercial is yet another reason why we love Asian tv commercials.

I now need a Toyota Corolla..for absolutely no reason other than perhaps my cat will learn martial arts. Also, I need a cat.
