This and that...

Random tidbits I've seen around the web...

Yes, you are seeing correctly. That is a Boston Red Sox bikini.

I can honestly say that I've never heard of any other sports team that had bikinis as part of thier merchandise line, have you? I mean, if there are others, please feel free to post about them in the comments. And would you believe this baby is $40?! I don't know anyone that would spend $40 on that, and I know a lot of Sox fans. I can understand buying this for a collection of memorabilia, but actually wearing it? In public? :shudders:

Can you imagine getting ready to get down and dirty, only to have your partner pull a box of these babies out of his pocket? I don't know what would be a bigger turnoff; the fact that they are "tongue lubricated" (ick!) or having to look at Gene Simmons's ugly mug on the box. Not one of KISS's better marketing ideas.

Anyone out there remember this? I sure do! Heck, I faithfully bought Muppet Magazine from the first issue up till a year or two before it ceased publication. This was the magazine to get in the 80's. And the Muppets actually interviewed people like Moon Zappa and the cast of The Facts Of Life, which made for some classic articles. I also remember that some of the Muppets had regular columns, like Statler and Waldorf's movie reviews. Wanna check this magazine out for yourself? Some eBay stores sell old issues, with prices starting at around $6.

Ahhhh, Motley Brue. You know, I've been a Cruehead since around 1984, and I never tried this stuff. I do remember Spencer Gifts selling bottles of these, though. I've heard that the Brue tastes rather sour, and I've also heard a rumor that this drink can turn your shit blue. Anyone care to confirm?

You've heard of Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Junior, but have you heard of Donkey Kong 3? No? Well, you didn't miss much. In this game you play as Stanley, a gardner; the object of the game is to shoot Donkey Kong and his bug friends with bug spray, to keep him from damaging Stanley's garden. Hmmm. I wonder why they didn't just use Mario? Anyway, if you are unsuccessful with spraying ol' D.K. and friends with bug spray, the bugs swoop down and take over the garden. Actually, it looks like the bugs swoop down and eat Stanley alive. I have never seen an arcade console for this game, but I do remember renting it for the Nintendo in the 80's, and it was just really bad. As I said above, you really didn't miss much.

wow what a business!
it will be a hit for their hardcore fans. they can keep it as memorabilia and sell it later in higher price.

That's true.

I still think it would look odd if someone actually wore it, though.
