Stuff on a Plane

12 Nov

The following haiku was inspired on a recent flight when the woman sitting next to me gave the flight attendant the finger:

 

Stay Wild

ripped jeans, snake-skin heels,
rocking that Joan Jett mullet.
doesn’t. give. a. fuck.

 

And now I shall present my SkyMall favorites from this particular trip (it changes every time):

From the creators of vajazzles and pejazzles, BootDazzles!…but this time with feathers.

 

 

Here’s a little something for all those folks planning to be alone for the rest of their lives.

 

 

Finally, my favorite of all the SkyMall gems–Hiccup Stick. It’s a stick. For hiccups.

OR just hold your breath.

 

Here is a video of testimonials for Hiccup Stick. Ladies and gentleman, I invite you to please keep in mind that it is a friggin’ STICK.

 

So what you’re saying is that I could go into my backyard RIGHT NOW and collect some sticks and sell each for $6.99 because of the hiccups? You’re joking. I’m wasting my life here, trying to make something of myself. Screw writing. Hiccup Stick, I am your new competitor. People, I will hunt you if you choose Hiccup Stick over my stick. I will sell my personal stick to you for one dollar cheaper, deliver it in my bathing suit to your front door and if you’re hot, for $4.00 extra I will give you a kiss on the cheek. Bonus feature? My stick was created by THE LORD GOD OUR SAVIOR. Just imagine, the Holy Trinity up in your mouth, helping you get rid of the hiccups.

I accept all major credit cards. Buy NOW.

    It’s a stick! And to make it more complicated, you have to drink water through it! I’ll sell you a brick that you put in your mouth and have to spoon jello through to cure balding. And I’ll sell it to you while wearing La La’s bathing suit to boot!

    Yeah LaLa, but you get 3! 3 sticks for 19.99! ( plus tax and shipping of course). I have to say thank you for making the item code SO clear that I can order them right away!

        but I need one for traveling, maybe guests, I don’t know. I may have to do some survey to cover all my bases on the exact number necessary. I haven’t had hiccups in years but I don’t want to be caught off guard man!

    I am convinced that the merchandise in Skymall is as bizarre as it is to distract people from realizing they are 10,000 feet from the ground.

    Bootdazzles and hiccup sticks….my life is complete. Could you please deliver the hiccup stick that God made to my door, while wearing a bathing suit. I have cold hard cash and will pay extra for the cheek kiss. Bonus: you can walk to my house!

    I think they’re banking on the fact that if people are bored enough, they’ll buy anything. I’m pretty sure the only stick that stops hiccups instantly is called a gun and that is guaranteed effective.

    And the Lord God smote thee sinners with yon hiccups. Not once, not twice, but thrice. And the Lord our Lord spaketh unto me, saying, ‘Sonny Jim, I giveth the sinners hiccups so therefore so to let LaLa make a boot load of cash. Shh! Don’t telleth anyone.’ And so I did maketh the call to famed merchant LaLa and yea, verily, the long stick thing arriveth and cureth me. Praiseth the Lord!
