In keeping with his typical dark and somewhat insane sense of humor, artist David Shrigley has designed this Eyeglass Cleaning Cloth — with his original drawings depicting what one’s pupils look like while under the influence of Crack, and also Heroin — which can be purchased in the gift shop at The New Museum of Contemporary Art in NYC. Funny.

Yes, It Exists: Cherry Print Dog Dress

OK, is it just me, or is this thing completely insane? It’s a little cherry-print dress that looks like it’s for a baby girl (in which case it would be adorable), but, it’s for a dog. A dog dress. I’ve heard of dog sweaters, which can actually help a short-haired dog stay warm when outside in a cold climate, but a fancy baby girl’s dress that is meant to put on a dog is just… ridiculous– and also, a little sad.

Dog Halloween Costumes, that I can get behind; because it is supposed to look silly and fun, and it is for one day a year. But to dress your pet like a baby in its everyday life is not a sane thing to do. What is even more mind blowing to me is that this dog dress has 176 Five Star Reviews! Some of them even have pictures of the dogs wearing the dress. Check it out!

On the plus side, it sells for only $4.99. What a bargain!

Javier Calleja’s No Art Here at Castor Gallery

I accidentally discovered this fun art show, No Art Here, when I was passing time before going to meet a friend for dinner on the lower east side.

Note Paper Peeking

The exhibit is made up of drawings/paintings, sculpture and installation to create somewhat whimsical, anthropomorphized versions school supplies, which is clever and also kind of weird, simultaneously.

Pencil Scribble on Wall

This sculpture above brought back many memories of elementary school, which is probably the last time I used a pencil to write with.

Ink Spot

Doesn’t this little Ink Spot guy remind you of Meatwad from Aqua Teen Hunger Force?

Post it Note Paintings

I love that these Post it Note Paintings appear to be fastened to the wall with large push pins.

Post it Note Alone
