Tape worms can be fun….


OK, probably not really. But some of our friends overseas may have a different perspective on little itchy critters. Ummm, I guess that’s definitely seeing the positive side of things. Of course, now I’m incredibly troubled by the idea of eyelash mites.

    How do you find this?  Or what sort of weird sicko sends you these things?…

    A weird Microsoftie sicko : )

    Now I’m worried that – as "one of our overseas friends" – the reason my tapeworms don’t tell me jokes is because I bite my nails.

    Like it’s not bad enough that my fingertips are sore all the time, I have to live with the bad karma that comes from irritating a poor little worm who has nowhere else to go.

    Man, life is just one bummer after another. 🙂

    PS – the "overseas" friends in question appear to be based in Seattle, WA. It’s you lot who are wierd, not us. 🙂

    I probably need to check the encyclopedia, but I’m not sure of the connection between fingernails and tape worms. Hmph, shows what aI know.

    I think the store where the merchandise is found is in Seattle, but my guess, from the text on the site is that the manufacturer/creator is not. Just based on the rough translation to English that results in phrases like "One day Holly was a lonely girl with not the friend".  Though I should point out that the only person that I said was weird was the person that sent this to me…and he knew this already : )

    Nope, Kelvin is right. Accoutrements is none other than Archie McPhee, based in Seattle. And a great place to buy stuff you don’t need. Tapeworms extra.

  7. HeatherLeigh says:

    Well, then the rough verbiage on the site is inexcusable. Sersiously, do you think they did it on purpose to make it look like an import? Must have.

  8. Tim says:

    I think so. I don’t know what they put in the water at that company, but I want some of it.

    If there is a positive side to parasites, this guy has found it: http://www.kuro5hin.org/story/2006/4/30/91945/8971

    Of course, it’s still not what I would call warm and fuzzy.

    whoah, I think a warm and fuzzy hookworm or tapeworm could be even worse than the regular variety!
