I haven't looked at the Skymall catalog in a really long time. You know, because it's full of shit.
But this morning, I didn't pass out in first class right away, and I had a few minutes to peruse the crap on offer in the summer '09 edition.
I'll need to take a copy with me on my next flight, because I've discovered that the on-line catalog is not the same as the real, non-virtual one. The stuff on-line is much less craptacular.
Here's one from SkyMall.com. It's the Alien Gnome Bandits lGarden Accent, and it can be yours for the price of $149.99.
|Alien Gnome Bandits Garden Accent
There's something terribly, wonderfully wrong here. Two open-jawed aliens are tromping off with your helpless, hapless garden gnome. It's a sure-fire laugh for gardeners and weed-cultivators alike. Utah artist Fred Conlon uses recycled and found metal to make the whimsical, fun and weather-safe accent. Ceramic gnome included. Creatures are 15" tall.
The great thing about the Alien Gnome Bandits Garden Accent is that it is available in two sizes (you can buy a smaller version for only $49.99) and if you need it stat, you can pay extra to have it rush delivered to you. If you're not quite ready to buy, you have the option of adding this item to your Skymall.com wishlist.
I am so going to start a SkyMall.com wishlist for myself.
