Shopping with Blobby

Yet another installment in the drudgery that is everyday shopping. The camera-phone makes it a bit more fun - though I get looks whenever I take pics of products. Like I care what people think!

One Dispenser to Rule Them ALL!!!!!

Geekiness in all its glory.   That phrase can no longer be uttered just about me.

PEZ is selling a Lord O'the Rings dispenser set.  Well.........I mean they are, but only kind of.

C'mon, not only do they not have the entire Council of Elrond here - they didn't even include Merry.....or Pippin.  I can't really tell which Hobbit they omitted.   I'm sure that Frodo and Sam are there.

I suppose they couldn't have a Boromir and then have his brother, so they scrapped them both.  Clearly, I'm making assumptions.  I have no idea.

And really, how cool would it to have had a Sauron one with a PEZ coming right out of his eye or something?

And PEZ could have a law suit on its hands.  There is a very thick glass ceiling in Middle Earth.   No Arwen?  No Eowyn?   And {gasp}, no Galadriel?????   Is this a joke?  She is the Lady of the Frickin' Wood!!!  (I added the 'frickin''.)

In reality it was just something I stumbled upon while at the grocery store.

I'm not sure any of these are as good as my Death Star PEZ, I'm not kidding.  They made one.  I bought one.  Yet, it is a good try.

Gilmi sure has a purty mouth.

Your opening line cracked me up. :D

Your geekiness is awesome. I still have TWO Hot Wheels Mars Rovers: one to play with, and one still in the package, of course.

You collect PEZ dispensers?

I don't really want to think about taking candy out of Gollem's neck, much less Aragorn "no skylz to pay da billz" son of Arathorn. I know that it's early in the Age of Men, but bathing needs to get figured out, fast.

Why is Yoda included?

Is it me, or does Gandalf the White look like a young Burt Reynolds? I mean, plucked,waxed, shaped eye brows and all!

The only one who isn't freaky is the dwarf!
From the left: Nero or Caligula or some Hollywood-ized Roman Emperor, George Harrison, Ewan McGregor, Burt Reynolds, Jeebus, a Real Housewife of Anytown, Gimli (son of Gloan) and Dionne Warwick.

Jon - LOL on the Caligula. Dead ON!!! and RORRRR on Dionne Warwick!!

Tamayn - I'll go on record, Aragorn is only appealing in his unwashed state. He has those little chicklet teeth - what's up w/that?

I hear PEZ dispensers are quite coveted collectibles in time. By a box, don't open it, and sell it on Ebay in a decade!
