HAHA! This cartoon of a Trick-or-Treating Grim Reaper, which I found on Instagram years ago, just refuses to date. Have a safe fun Halloween, Dear Readers!
Confession: While the Poo emoji may be a convenient way to express the feeling that something or someone is Shit (as opposed to The Shit), I am not really down with this whole ‘making poo seem cute’ thing. I don’t need to see a smiling Poo made into a pillow or a purse or a keychain. Leave me out of the Poo Renaissance, please. That goes also for the Original Bag of Poo that I spotted in a port shop in Ketchikan, Alaska. It’s just a cutesy way to market expensive Brown Cotton Candy. PASS!
Did you ever see the movie Fight Club? It is pretty good, if a bit disturbing, and is sometimes known in popular culture for the bars of Fight Club Soap that were given out to journalists and probably also movie theater owners as a promotional item when the film was first released. While soap-making is a sub-plot thread within the film (don’t ask) these bars of soap do not actually appear in the movie. In short order, however, sellers of novelty items started making Fight Club soap that you could actually buy, and now you can find these bars all over with a variety of sayings on them. Because that is how it works.
Dark Like My Heart Bath Bombs is a product from UK-based novelty gift company Gift Republic, who definitely make some fun products. These fragrant bath bombs for the Goth on your gift list look silver in the photo, but that is just glare bouncing off the packaging. They are actually a charcoal grey color and are meant to turn your bath water black. If you are curious about what it would be like to bathe in black water, check out what users are saying about this product on Amazon!
