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!

I was looking at amazon for other things, when this was a suggestion in the mix. 

I was all like, "whaaaaaat?". 

Clearly, I don't know all of what amazon sells. But clearly, there is nothing they won't make coin on. So to speak. 

It billed as a 'funny gift', but it's really not HI-larious. Or is that just me? Thought it does come with a velveteen coin purse. 

It still hardly warrants at $19.99 price tag.  

And IF you're putting a price on it - are you prostituting yourself to the person you might give this I.O.U.? 

BTW - all the reviews were from women.  They LOVED it.  Do you think the same will be said of them when whomever the recipients were cash in that gift? 

Bethca not.

I was gonna say that ,surely wouldn’t sell to a crowd of gay men . I really think that’s the first stop after foreplay. The 19.99 would maybe buy Starbucks at a Grindr look see. I’ve never seen this as not a part of my skill set and although any liaisons lasting longer than a weekend have emotional baggage, trying to pry a BJ out of someone has never been part of the equation. Would be interesting to see who thought this up , man or woman, sounds like a needy straight guy . The day I pass a token back and forth for generic skills is the day I’ll know my relationship/ liaison is over . Some people like what they do, and if they are encouraged and complimented, will do even better. 20.00 might buy the pizza from a generic shop, but no tokens please it’s on the house!

Hmmm... when will women realize that trading sexual favors for something is misogynistic? There bodies are not consolation prizes, nor their sexual selves. Grow up, America. Your culture is stuck in 1962.

It sure beats the "momento mori" coin that's available.
