This is lovely.

Pink Thing of the Day is one of my very favorite things to blog about, and I usually dedicate it to something pink that I would actually want to own. This particular item? Not so much. I like to keep celebrity gossip out of The Gig and leave it to be done better by Best Week Ever and Gawker, and I truly find Nadya Suleman to be a completely loathsome and repulsive human being not deserving of any attention in a fun and awesome blog like this one. But hey, this shit is pink! So here we go. Always on the cutting edge of the latest controversial-topical-media-hype-overload, sculptor Daniel Edwards presents his latest work of art. Cast in eye-catching hot pink, “String of Babies” depicts Octo-Mom Nadya Suleman with tentacles in place of her body, appropriately holding a string of 8 babies and a baby bottle. The rubber collectible, depicting Octo-Mom embracing the world’s only surviving set of octuplets, fits into the pattern of Edward’s works “which take controversial media topics and present them in the form of art in a playful way” (Edwards’ previous works include Pregnant Britney Spears Giving Birth and Dead Paris Hilton).
Measuring 9 inches tall by 12 inches in diameter and made of flexible polyurethane material, “String of Babies” is a limited edition of just 200 pieces, signed and numbered by the artist. The first 50 are available for the must-own bargain price of just $199! Once those sell, the price skyrockets to $500. So, get them while they’re hot, as the saying goes. More pictures and exclusive purchasing information are right over here at Guy Hepner Editions’ website, Trend Hunter Dot Com.
As always, thanks to Neatorama for the tip!
