McDonald’s Icecapades…how was this not traumatizing for children (or was it)?

This looks like the Codex Gigas.

And then we have the Holy Bible, which apparently has a wider readership than I had suspected…

Seduction for Dummies (*groan*).

Make sure you order a DIET soda with this to save calories.

Puts things in perspective, no?

So true…

A dinosaur’s preferred travel method.

I wish I did!

I couldn’t find an artist for this image anywhere. Any ideas?

Ah, finally a realistic series.

Pants on fire!

The Best Worst Shirt Ever

Posted in absurd, cats, humor with tags , , on August 30, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

A loved one introduced me to a term he and a friend coined many years ago: The Wrap Around. Essentially, when something is so incredibly, mind-blowingly bad that it becomes utterly fantastic…it “wraps around” (yes, we’ve all heard “so bad it’s good” but I feel The Wrap Around is a tidier, more effective term for the phenomenon).

The BEST example I’ve seen in ages of something that clearly wraps around is the The Mountain Fall Kitty Tee.


Soak in every detail (right down to the color coordinated scarf). I’ll wait.



Note: Fall Kitty is 100% irony free and contains 0% self awareness.

It’s perfection in every single way except for the fact that it doesn’t come in my size. I believe it starts in a men’s medium.

I’d venture to say I’d never be caught dead with a man who would NOT wear this shirt.

Nimbus the Nihilist

Posted in cats, humor, nihilist, Nimbus the Nihilist with tags , , , on August 26, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

I’m starting a new feature here on SWS: Nimbus the Nihilist. Although she’s a happy, loving girl off camera, in nearly every photograph Ms. Nimbus appears to be in the throes of existential crisis. No one knows why, so we must assume she is a precociously philosophical feline who often ruminates on what it all means…or doesn’t mean.

Join me as I chronicle her many expressions of existence’s profound futility (coupled with classic quotes to encapsulate what I imagine she’s thinking).



I’m starting with my oldest photographs of her two months ago when she joined my home, so you can witness her nihilism blossom over time. If you have any favorite quotes that might be appropriate for future posts, please share!

Prancing Prey Puppet Teaser

Posted in absurd, cats, humor, products with tags , , , on August 17, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

Apparently, today is Black Cat Appreciation Day (who knew?). Far be it from me to miss ANY opportunity to show some love for black cats (I’ve been cuddling with my beloved Dr. Morbius all morning).

I present the latest addition to Dr. Morbius and Ms. Nimbus’s ever expanding toy collection. I think you’ll agree it’s pretty much the greatest cat toy ever made: The Prancing Prey Puppet Teaser!


Yep, it’s a Freddy Krueger glove…with MICE. I was hoping to get some quality action shots, but alas, cats are not always the best photo subjects on cue. However, I don’t see how anyone could resist buying a Prancing Prey Puppet Teaser at first glance!

Tell me your favorite black cat (or any cat) story.

Frog Cakes…A Loose Interpretation

Posted in cake, food, humor with tags , , on August 15, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

You’d be surprised how different bakeries execute the task of making a “frog cake.”

For reference, this is what a frog actually looks like.

And now for some examples of generous amphibian artistic liberty!

This gorgeous lady is all made for date night.

Don’t know what frog limbs look like? Tentacles curling in on themselves with random smatterings of black gunk is a fair guesstimate.

What are those blue dollops of icing on the head? Anyone? I can’t say I understand the mouth either.

This isn’t how legs work.

This isn’t how anything works. But if the customer requested “Oscar the Grouch as a nuclear casualty,” this cake would be on point.

From the fine folks at Cake Wrecks.

Cringe Worthy Bible Rap

Posted in humor, music, video with tags , , on August 9, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

I dare you to watch this slice of religious musical embarrassment without cringing. Also, pretend it’s 1984.

Yes, this is real. No, Run DMC and the Beastie Boys, they are not.

Sung Jae Kim: Ice Cream Melting

Posted in humor, sculpture with tags , on July 11, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

I think this sculpture by Sung Jae Kim would make a great decoration to haul out at the beginning of summertime.


And from now on, temperatures should be measured on a progressive scale of Pleasant, Warm, Hot, The Popsicles are Terrified!

If you thought you’d probably never witness an ice cream bar having an existential crisis…you thought wrong.

You can see this little guy come to life step by step HERE.
