Stupid Giant KIA Hamster

I’m not sure if this is one of those KIA hamsters, but it resembles it enough to bring out the rage in me. I really hate those commercials. I wanted to buy it just to incinerate it.


Car keys for scale.


Peculiar Seal Pinata


Who gives away a brand new pinata? That friendly seal face is just asking to be clubbed to shreds by sugar-hungry children and/or intoxicated adults.


It apparently has some kind of protrusion on the nose. Perhaps this manufacturing mishap is why he’s yet to find a (admittedly short-lived) home.

4 Jerry Maguires for the 4th of July

The San Diego Salvation Army is half off everything today to celebrate our freedom to buy other people’s discarded belongings.


What’s more American than a super sports agent? 4 of them!


Have a safe and fun holiday, everyone. Go blow something up and wave a flag.

This Mess is a Place!

I knew I had to buy this as soon as I saw it.

It’s now in my room…somewhere…

Flip to this side for Easter. You’ll be the envy of every old woman.

…and this side for St. Patrick’s Day.  Or really any Irish-themed event.  Or maybe just any time you’re eating Lucky Charms.

So this one time I found an Indiana Pacers jersey shirt in San Francisco…

I love sports, so I never miss a chance to buy anything from any of the major franchises. Last August in San Francisco I stumbled upon a Pacers jersey shirt while at a Salvation Army. I never imagined I’d have the opportunity to wear it in a relevant setting until tonight.


I wore this thrifted Indiana jersey shirt to game 3 of the Hawks-Pacers first round playoff game here in Atlanta, Ga.


Unfortunately it’s a Tyler Hansbrough shirt. He’s terrible. Arguably dreadful. Frankly I was embarrassed and considered taking it off.

Goodwill finds I wore on the set of Anchorman 2!


Got the shirt for $4 and the tie, which was brand new, for $2.


Got these great shoes that admittedly need to be cleaned up for $5.


Here’s the whole outfit. Surprisingly the linen suit was not thrifted. That’s a long story…

Even I wouldn’t put one of these in my mouth…


Nothing like cheaply manufactured, most likely toxic toothbrushes.

Mr. Baseball: An American Classic

One of Selleck's top 15 performances in a sport-related film set in the 1990s.

It’s hard to imagine a used VHS costing $9.99.  

My new Christmas wish.


As long as they’re of legal age, of course…
