Fat As Pigs

This ad is from 1890, Groves Tasteless Chill Tonic sold more than Coca Cola. Because it promises to make adults and children fat as pigs? At least they were honest.

Old Spice Saved The World

This is funny. Nice parody. Better than the original. Awh, that poor random turkey.



Biblio-Mat

Wonderful idea!

The Biblio-Mat is a random book dispenser built by Craig Small (thejuggernaut.ca) for The Monkey’s Paw, an idiosyncratic antiquarian bookshop in Toronto. Biblio-Mat books, which vary widely in size and subject matter, cost two dollars. The machine was conceived as an artful alternative to the ubiquitous and often ignored discount sidewalk bin. When a customer puts coins into it, the Biblio-Mat dramatically whirrs and vibrates as the machine is set in motion. The ring of an old telephone bell enhances the thrill when the customer’s mystery book is delivered with a satisfying clunk into the receptacle below.

The science of productivity.

Shiny Red Testicles

Good one! Why am I humming Rudolf The Rednosed Reindeer all of a sudden?

"To help raise awareness of testicular cancer during this festive period, cancer charity Orchid have teamed up with creative agency Fallon to release a Christmas tree bauble in the guise of a pair of shiny red testicles. As well as raising funds for new research, it is also hoped the decoration will remind men to check themselves for possible signs of testicular cancer.
If you want to donate to a worthwhile cause and make your guests laugh at the same time, the Bauballs will be available to purchase online from 10 December, 2012."

DIY Silly Walk Clock

Nice Christmas present.

"A Swedish woman named Susanne (not a witch), inspired by the Monty Python Ministry of Silly Walks Watch has taken it upon herself to create a larger version: Silly Walks Wall Clock. She provides complete instructions but it’s pretty basic stuff, just cut out a John Cleese silhouette and put it on a clock."

Explaining Color To Blind People

That's indeed almost impossible. Explaining color to blind people, or explaining Radiohead to deaf people. I'm still wondering, if I have to pick one, be deaf or be blind, I still don't know.
