I know it’s strange but I love collecting really bad food photos. Whether a result of a truly bad recipe, bad food styling or better yet, BOTH, I’m amazed that ad people back then allowed this stuff to make it to print. Knowing that it’s almost a science now with Food Testers, Stylists and Photographers being paid top dollar for magazine features and ads, it’s nice to know that once upon a time, people really just didn’t care…
Anything with ‘aspic’ should usually raise red flags
It’s like raw meat surrounded by little bunches o’ brains
Having mastered Peas, Del Monte then offers up this tempting creamed Corn concoction
It’s amazing how creepy spaghetti can look in the wrong hands
I love the tagline, “Some things can be copied and some things can’t.” Well, thank God for that!
Run, kids! Mom's made the Haystack!
The Frankfurter-Kraut Crown – the perfect holiday centerpiece!
A very rare way of serving “Pork with Spaghetti” or as I call it, “Hairy Pork” : P
When you ask a Vegetarian which food item they were hard-pressed to give up, the anwer is usually… Bacon. There are a few things in this world that can affect humans as much as the smell of sizzling… Bacon. Maybe Calvin Klein should create ‘CK Bacon’ and unleash the feral side of any meat-eating woman on the unsuspecting cologne-wearer. Anyway, I’m apparently not the only person who has a weakness for these strips of pork belly. There are hundreds of Bacon tribute sites and fan pages online. Predictably, a lot of strange bacon-related items have been cropping up. So here’s how I picture a day in the life of a bacon-obsessed person…
Have a morning shower with a nice juicy bar of Bacon Soap
Sit down to breakfast with a morning-brightening Bacon Placemat
Mmm, is that coffee or bacon? Brew a sizzling cup of Maple Bacon Morning coffee
Slap on that snazzy Bacon Suit that drives women (and hungry dogs) wild
If it’s cold, make like a bacon-wrapped weenie dog with the cozy Bacon Scarf
Don’t forget your Bacon Briefcase!
… And your Bacon Lunchbox!
… And your Bacon Wallet!
Make sure all your files are in your trusty Bacon USB Flash Drive
Get into your delicious-smelling car care of your Bacon Air Freshener
At the end of the day, kick back with a bottle of Squeez Bacon…
Wash it all down with your favorite diet soda…
And don’t forget to floss for that extra clean feeling
This is one of the strangest things yet. Now, the California Cryobank (CCB) allows you to choose a sperm donor chosen by the best of their subjective abilities to be celebrity look-a-likes. They have hundreds of actors, musicians and athletes to choose from with links to pictures of celebrities in case you’re not sure what they look like. (So if you just want to pick some random celebrity for your kid to look like?!) Some famous names include Van Halen, Yao Ming, Adam Sandler, BJ Penn, Balthazar Getty, Antonio Banderas, Cedric the Entertainer and Christian Bale.
I did a search for Prince William (handsome young lad) and this is how his profile reads:
Ambitious and Adventurous
“At 6’3”, 203 lbs, Donor 11194 towers over the competition. He’s also a charmer with blue eyes, blond hair, and a friendly smile on a handsome face. He plans to express his creativity through acting and directing professionally, and hopes to become a catalyst for positive change in the world. The son of an English/Hungarian mother and a German/Dutch father, he’s a gentleman in the Old World sense, placing a high value on honesty and honor.”
His vial costs $490. Oh, and this donor also resembles Rick Shroder – yikes.
She’s done it again. Just when I thought I was familiar with Southern domestic goddess Paula Deen’s arsenal of deep-fried, bacon-wrapped, sugar-stuffed recipes, she manages to produce another eyebrow-raiser.
Enjoy this video of her putting together a great sandwich. Watching this sends a chill down my spine : O ….
I don’t know any other decade this past century that has had the most laughable fashions other than the 1970s. Maybe it was something in the water back then, but everyone seemed to feel like they were at the forefront of some avant-garde style revolution. Having lived through the ’70s as a small child, I never really realized anything was wrong… until I started seeing fashion photos from the decade, particularly the later disco-infused years. These GREAT catalogue photos from Plaidstallions.com really showcase the best of the worst. When I’m feeling down, I look at these and I smile : ) Git down, party people!
The 1970s version of loungwear for sleazebags
Tooth necklace is model's own
Man Mates: great pastel colors, pointy butterfly collars, bandana…simply irresistible!
"Hey baby, want to cruise in my Camaro?"
A “Big Yank” outfit for big & tall men who like butterflies
He'll pound anyone who says "cuute shirt!"
For creepy couples you don’t want to hang out with
"I don't know about you, but I'm feeling frisky in this navajo blanket"
More matchy fashions for creep-ola swingin’ couples who like to disco
"Oh yeah, wow... I can SEE the music!" (as acid starts kicking in...)
Creepy couples can have summer options too!
The flared pants, white star belt and white shoes are pushing it... but a matching halter top?! Dump him!
So you can match your pimp…
"Where's my money at?!"
What the really cool and sophisticated girls wore to the disco
Seriousy, there are no words to express my thoughts...
For the fashion-conscious ’70s boy… (who is today still in therapy)
I don’t know why wax lips are still in joke shops when there are now women who actually pay to achieve this bizarre ultra-plump-pouty look. Maybe part of the fluid injected into your lips makes you instantly believe you look like Angelina Jolie. Aside from Megan Fox (who can kind of pull it off), the rest of these women remind me of the freaky melting women from Soundgarden’s Black Hole Sun video. Creepy!
Why Brittany, Why?
There was NOTHING wrong with her to begin with
Olivia Newton-John’s daughter, Chloe Lattanzi, felt she needed duck lips at 23
Dearest Donatella… no no nooo
The Philippines hasn’t been spared…
The one who can probably pull it off: Megan Fox Before & After
Great parting shot… Donatella is now Janice the Muppet!
My friend Rissa sent me a GREAT link last week. I’ve been wanting to post these superb family photos for a while but my husband (aka my angel-wing wearing good conscience) says it’s not nice to poke fun at other people’s family snaps. I see his point, but I also feel that these are too good to pass up sharing. So, as a compromise, I’ll just post photos sans any comments from me. Zip, zip it, zoo zoo. I’m a mime (with a blue pen ; ). Enjoy…
When I rely on memory, it was pretty cool growing up in the 70s. I had all sorts of fun toys, the shows on TV were pretty good (even though we only had 5 channels). But when I see photos like these, it makes me wonder…
