Crafts that should not be

    I just discovered a whole section on Yahoo's topics pages (links to all kinds of things they've dredged up for us) for funny and wild and weird craft creations.

    I think if you want a good laugh you should visit this link and see what some people the world is doing when the rest of the world isn't watching.

    These delightful items should never have been imagined, much less realized, but here they are!  Enjoy!

    If they're selling, someone's buying. The world of supply meets demand has finally gone nuts smile

      I believe the second picture down is the best! I could totally see myself conversing at a cocktail party while sporting some good ol' shirt-pants. ...and they're only $78.00!!! wow.

    On second thoughts there are. Tragic. Humiliating. Teacosy. Save the dog neutral

    ok, I know this hurts- but just one more, ok?

    you have to realize the hours and hours of grueling work that went into making this shyte!


    and no, don't tell me you love it and are giving it to you bff for Christmas!  you have to also read the blurb that goes with this one:

    "sexy python bra will elevate your sexyness to a higher fashion altitude by giving you mood lift, fashion lift, and the attention you deserve. Panties are lined with gold satin like fabric and ruffles on sides are animal print with bead tossils hanging at sides. Totally made from scratch by scratcing my head for creative concepts to captivate and mesmerize your need for visual stimuli."

    I am mesmerized by a need I didn't even know I had!! lol

      I don't know why but she looks like she was swallowed whole by the snake and then vomited. Seriously, what's wrong with her?! That is not a normal body! hmm

        mega1posted 6 years ago in reply to this

        I really think that is a man's body.  just a guess.

        Stacie -  I'm not trying to stifle creativity, but no, well, maybe I am.! If someone came to me for advice about whether to make any of these things before they'd gone to the trouble I would try to steer them onto some other choice. I suppose that is stifling their creative impulses - oh well.  Of course for artists, anything goes.  But for those of us who don't think their creations are beautiful or buy-worthy - we can say so.  And sometimes extreme ugliness is very, very funny to me!

        Since these things were originally posted online by others who also thought they were incredibly awful, I know I'm not the only one. And we're all free to have and share our opinions.  We all have different ideas about what is beautiful, cute, or ugly - but some ugly seems so so ugly to me!  When I say it should not "be", I guess I'm just stating my own opinion.  Different strokes for different folks and in fact, I wouldn't even want to own a dog like the one above!  I couldn't bring myself to pet it!  Chihuahuas have always made me cringe but I know there are many who adore them.  I'll probably hear from chihuahua lovers now.  AND  some people adore ugliness! they also think its ugly but love it anyhow!

        I KNOW!  Me too!  I'm so sorry I inflicted it on everybody - at first I thought it was funny, but then I thought - what kind of people are making this stuff and who has a body like that?  has to be some kind of anorexic guy - cross-dresser!  hmm  lol

            too bad I can't drink alcohol.  I'll just have a near beer then.  Yes, I know it is bad taste to ridicule others just for bad taste, but if I didn't then I wouldn't then most of my humor would be eliminated and I'd be a nice, good girl - we can't have that, can we!

    well you are familiar with the saying "one man's junk is another mans treasure?" right?
    anything goes when it comes to crafts because crafters are thinking outside the box and creativity should not be stifled.

    gnome sticking its head out of mushroom - self-explanatory - the blogger said "this is a family blog and as such, I can't say what I first thought when I saw this listing. I will say that it's supposed to be a gnome sticking his head out of a mushroom.

    Thank you Mega for giving me the best laugh I've had in ages lol

    The Craftastrophe blog in the Craft Blogs section is well worth a look.

    "I’d love to stay here and share countless witty observations about this fetching accessory, but I can’t suppress my overwhelming urge to scurry to the nearest mall and buy a new sports bra.  Scratch that, I’m going to replace all my bras with those terrifying, uber-supportive eighteen hour numbers.  I’d like to keep my girls sitting above the waist, thanks very much."
