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!

Ohhhhh My.

Here is my guess on why dog toys these days look like gay marital aids:

The return on investment to make big, fat dildos isn't where it needs to be. I mean, think about it - someone had to design, build and install equipment that heats some rubber / plastic goo, squirt it in to a mold and then cool, release and package the product.

That's gotta be pretty pricey.

I didn't even factor in overhead: rent, utilities, staffing, shipping and marketing.

Sure the materials for said 'do {that's short for dildo} is pennies on the dollar. It's all the incidentals that drive your butt toy (well, I guess it could be a vag toy too) into the $30 range.  And you'd have to sell a lot of them.

So you just double your production and have a secondary market / packaging system ready to go: dogs.

And you know the pet industry is like a $40 Kerjillion dollar business annually........I said "annually", not "anally". Pervs.

The joke is, if any of this is true, the pet part probably makes more profit than it does for the Adultmart portion. Cuz let's face it - people spend way more money on Spot than they do on sex.

I actually have one of these. And yes, it's for the dog. She also has the traditional Nylabone and their Gummy Bone version. They came with a free video: "Romancing the Bone." (I stole that joke).

In all my sixty years, I have never seen a nonhuman dildo in person (oh the places you could go with that sentence!). I guess dogs everywhere have more experience. I love your sense of humor!
