And the prize …

… for the weirdest item ordered from my Amazon links this season goes to the Dragon Claw Ashtray. (Even weirder: it features no claws. But definitely dragons. Er … dragon parts.)

Congratulations, Anonymous Winner!

I can’t decide whether this beats last year’s Barack Obama Chia Pet. They’re both certainly Olympic contenders for weirdness.

I shall be back shortly with some actual, you know, content. Meantime, I thought y’all might enjoy this. I certainly did.

    A Barack Obama ashtray… Maybe just the face with an open mouth? Might sell… 🙂

    Or how about an Obama urinal? Just a thought . . . .

    Oh, was there a contest?

    Will have to keep that in mind for next year. 😉

    Are those dragons mooning everybody?

    You know, I’m not quite sure what those dragons are doing, Shel. But I think they’re just being dead. Looks like skulls and horns (?) to me.

    MamaL, if somebody actually makes a Barack Obama ashtray, it’ll definitely be a candidate for next year’s Amazon Weirdness award!

    Ha Ha! I win again! My Obama Chia pet and Obame TP won before… I bought the ashtray to go on my bar in my Viking themed mancave. I’m sure it’ll get broke at the NYE party.

    Y’know, Ragnar. When I saw that, I thought of you and I wondered. And that’s without even knowing about the Viking-themed mancave. You do have a certain talent for weirdness.

    An admirable trait, that. 🙂

    So congratulations on your big win — even though you don’t actually win anything! If you take the prize next year we might just have to retire your non-existent trophy.

    Hee Hee… BTW, I already put in a call to my Freedom Monkey™ to make you a custom Obama ashtray prototype… It could be your next big thing.

    I’ll bet it would sell like … well, an Obama ashtray.

    I suppose a presidential (any president) toilet seat would would be going over some invisible line.
