My camera has been slowly dying since it flew out of my pocket and crashed on the asphalt after my spectacular crash on my first midnight bike ride last summer. Luckily, suburban Tampa is jam-packed with big box stores that were offered the exact same model (Canon Powershot Elph 300HS, the little camera that could) at dirt-cheap prices. While looking about the stores, I snapped photos of products on the shelves that amused me.
“No more bending to clean your feet,” the package promises. And to think, all this time, I’ve been bending over like a chump. If I ever end up in prison, I’m definitely going to order these.
If you’ve always wanted a Snuggie but didn’t like the way they make you look like a member of a religious cult, Forever Lazy is for you. Instead of a robe, it’s oversized pajamas that come with matching slipper socks. Like the Snuggie, it has a hood to keep your head warm; unlike the Snuggie, it features a zippered back hatch so you don’t have to choose between staying cosy and pooping.
There’s nothing that can’t be given the Hello Kitty treatment.
Here’s something that you can get in Florida that I haven’t seen in Ontario: booze and mix, in one package, ready to pick up with you and take to the party. The Jack and Coke combo is a classic…
…although Jack and Coke in a can may be taking it a bit far. After all, the recipe is so simple that the name of the drink is the recipe.
“Rye and ginger” is a common cocktail in Canada, but I confess I’ve never thought of mixing Jameson – a whiskey, so it’s related to rye – with anything.
Over in a section of the store that I’m surprised wasn’t marked with a giant sign that read “GIRL DRINKS” was a giant shelf of Pinnacle vodka. I’d never heard of this brand before; it seems specifically for people who like drinks with names like “Chocolate Choo-Choo”.
As you can see in the photo above, they have cake-flavoured vodka. By “cake”, I assume they mean that it tastes like “yellow cake”, like Cold Stone Creamery’s “cake batter” or Marble Slab’s “birthday cake” ice cream flavours.
There’s also a whipped cream-flavoured vodka, whose silliness can only be topped by…
…chocolate whipped cream-flavoured vodka.
