BUNNIES AND KITTIES AND DUCKIES

An ideal range of gifts for the disturbed or German child.

    1. My favorite radio show, Loveline, used to feature a game called “Germany or Florida?” A caller would tell the hosts a bizarre, macabre, effed-up story from the news, and the hosts would have to guess whether it was from Germany or Florida.

      Cannibalism and necrophilia were usually German.

    1. I can’t say if this is for a German, but I know some American and Australian lefties who would love to have it to send to President Bush.

    1. And this we should take up a collection, and send it to Hamas as a victory gift.

    1. I just wish this came in black, and with suitable filler.  Alas, pink is not my color.

      Houdova planning to exhibit photos smuggled out of Cuba

      Czech model Helena Houdova who was imprisoned in Cuba last week told
      journalists she had managed to smuggle out photographs taken on the
      island. Houdova was arrested along with another model, as they were
      taking pictures of children in slums. The two women spent 11 hours in
      police custody. Houdova, who is heavily involved in charity, says her
      intention was to portray the dark side of Cuba as an island of poverty
      and political oppression. Although their cameras were confiscated
      Houdova says she managed to conceal a memory card inside her bra. The
      pictures are to be displayed at an exhibition organized with the help
      of the humanitarian aid organization People in Need.

    1. KK,

      Those “Grüsli” teddy bears look like they’re based on Ted Rall scribblings.

      Weird.

    1. What else would u expect out of Germany frankly….  You can see why many (though i’m sure not all) Germans have the personality they do….

    1. Why is the “Space Cowboy” alien wearing a film noir detective’s hat?

      Wow, superhero supermodel.  So fantastic to see someone like that fighting Castro.

    1. The “safari unfall” picture of wild animals enjoying a human snack brought hippo to mind from today’s Age: i.e. hip tourists

    1. coincidentally crikey has a bit about kerry nettle

      My enduring memory of Kerry was her tactic to reduce stress levels within the excruciating democracy of consensus decisionmaking; she used to sit in caucus and knit. I think one particularly gruesome national NUS conference, she churned out a whole sweater.

      probably churned out hempen cardies with 5 arms & plantation timber buttons

    1. Germans love this stuff. It’s their nature. Watch a German while he watches “Fawlty Towers” or “Monty Pythons”. He/she won’t get it at all (and not just because of the war, which I won’t mention).

      Germans just don’t ‘get’ subtle humour. They love slapstick. The more violent the better. Imagine a “World’s Funniest Home Videos” where in every video, someone loses an arm or eyeball. That would have them rolling in the aisles.

      They’re demented, basically.

    1. Oh my… I need to get some of these before the next sci-fi convention. My plush Cthullu & plush Ebola virus just aren’t wierd enough for the Sunday morning Fuzzy Heros game.

    1. I did laugh out loud at the bunny looking up at the giant carrot-missile coming at him….  I guess I’m a sick bastard too….

    1. TRADITION German style. These are the same people who began WWII genocide by ordering its population to kill their pet dogs, as a starter. (After that came the mentally disturbed, then the physically handicapped, then the gypsies, then the Jews, then the Poles, then the…) I have a dog training book which states that, should the dog not learn certain commands in a stated time, it should be put down immediately. Now they want to lecture us about civilized behaviour.

    1. There you go, just proving that we in the Anglosphere are not nuanced enough to understand the proper way to train a pet.

    1. Sorry, in #17 I failed to mention that the dog training book was written and published in Germany in 1960.

    1. Ok, I was with it up until the Rowing Monkey.  Now that is just disturbing.  Monkey, Banana, Rowing.

    1. I thought the tiger chewing the arm was kind of funny.  Maybe I’m sick too…
