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!   

Yikes. Is it really possible, I haven't done a Shopping with Blobby entry since March '23???  For shame.

Is NOTHING funny in the shopping realm anymore?? 

Maybe I can make it up to all of you today with this entry. It's not food. It's not even in person shopping. It's on-line, and I wish I had a friend who had a child to whom I could gift this - just for the adult reaction. 

Oh yes, it's a real book. 

And, Oh Yes, I'm THAT guy who'd order it, wrap it and send it on its way. 

I would have died to be at the meeting that ok'd the book along with the title. I'd have died to head that meeting. 

Of course, besides the title, I love the amazon categorization of it all. 

The last two. And the self-help. 

Even better?  It's part of a series. I shit you not.

  • Suzy Likes to Look at Balls 
  • Come Swing with Us! 
  • Spank the Monkey Lends a Hand 
  • Brenda's Beaver Needs a Barber 

Seriously. I am not kidding. It's gotta be better than collecting the Harry Potter series.  The book company?  Reach Around Books. 

As you'd expect, the reviews are mixed - much like Tony's nuts, I'm assuming. People find it hilarious and have gotten it for baby showers.  And then there's something like this:

I thought this book was funny while reading the description on Amazon, but once the book arrived, it talks about Grandpa taking pictures of your nuts and that's just a bit too pedophile-ish for me to think it's funny.

Clearly (?), I haven't actually read this, so in theory I get the reviewers concerns, but I also don't have full context. It's not like they went completely Westboro Baptist Church on amazon, the author or company. 

I think you can all be happy that we are not close enough for me to send these to you for your children or grandchildren. 

Now......Mike on the other hand.....I might have just found his Oscar prize, because I don't really want to make him cookies.

Sounds quite amusing to me . I’d put Tony’s nuts in my mouth. If it’s consensual and he’s 21 , and they are cashews.

The perfect gift for someone "special."

Maybe offer the book and some pecan cookies as your penance for losing the Oscar game again?

Self help? More like Help Yourself. Hysterical.
