Now, I don't have my own dog, but I'm sure I could find one to dress up by Halloween and just send it on its merry way. Won't pup's owners be surprised when he comes home as royalty... Not that that'd be anything to wish upon someone. The King of All Cosmos is such a jerk.
If you've got a tolerant canine that actually loves and respects you more you deserve, then you can order your very own Katamari Prince small dog costume from Victoria's Shop on Etsy for $30.00. Also, upon special request, she'll throw in some purple leg warmers to substitute for pants.
Gizmodo reader Mitchell Jones knew something was rotten in the state of Walmart when he discovered that an imposter had snuck into the new iPod Nano case. Wow, is Walmart really trying to pass this knockoff for a legit iPod Nano? For shame... So, Mitchell attempted to explain to the staff that this was in fact, not a real iPod, but to no avail. I'm sure it was probably just a return, but who is the joke on in the end? Walmart for being stupid or the sad sappy sucker who'll end up buying it?
No offense Homer, but I've never taken you to be much of a wine connoisseur. Come to think of it, I don't really find you to be much of a beer expert, either. Actually, the only thing you ever drink is Duff and maybe a Flaming Homer. But that's it. Oh well, I guess this wouldn't be the first job you have no experience in, but let's just hope you'll make a better corkscrew than Safety Inspector. Now how about we finally put that beer belly to some good use?
The Simpsons Homer Corkscrew is available from Play for about $18.00
Hard drives can be aesthetically underwhelming, that's why this Etsy craftser decided to mod an NES Cartridge with a 250gb SATA Hard drive with 8mb cache. Best part? It can be yours! The NES-Box Etsy shop has only been around for a couple of days now, so I'm sure we can expect even more games/HDDs to come. For now, you can invest in the Super Mario Bros. NES Box for $180.00.
German zoo owner Renate Klosse got to experience just how dangerous a Tiger python can be when she was cleaning out the cage of Antonia, the 24 year old snake who stretched 12 ft long. Like snakes like to do, the feisty lass unhinged her jaw and lunged for Renate's face. Renate, having more tuned reflexes than I ever will, instinctively stuck her thumbs into the jawbone of the snake while her colleagues sprayed it with water. Apparently water makes a snake lose it sense of smell, therefore disorienting it. Lucky for Renate, she got to keep her head, though I'm sure the bite of 70 sharp teeth didn't feel so great.
I'd like to go ahead and present Renate with a Lifetime Badass Achievement award for surviving this encounter. I can't imagine what could be scary after a snake tries to swallow you head first. I mean, except for it happening again. That'd suck
Oh, California. It's events like these that make me wish I lived on you. Who am I kidding? It's the weather and the weather alone. Still, a steampunk convention sounds like a real good time and I'll admit it, I'm kind of jealous. So, considering that I can't be there myself to enjoy the festivities, I'm going to need all of you who are in a reasonable distance of Sunnyvale, California, to enjoy it for me. And yes, you must be dressed to the nines.
Also, I'd greatly appreciate it if you sent all the handsome steampunk lads my way via zeppelin. Thanks.
- What- Steam Powered - the California Steampunk Convention
- Where- the Domain Hotel in Sunnyvale, CA
- When- Friday Oct 31 - Sunday Nov 2, 2008
