7 Quick Takes Friday: 7 Things I WON'T BUY!

Today I have made a list of 7 things I am pretty sure I will never buy...

--- 1 ---

The first item I won't be buying is the "Count down Christmas Whiskey Advent Calendar".
Ya... I'll pass on that one.

--- 2 ---

I love statues in my gardens. Growing up, my great grandmother Nanie used to tell us tales of the wood fairies (tiny wee folk) who lived in the forest. She had a beautiful garden gnome figure that she would occasionally move around in the garden partially hiding him behind flowers. It was a sort of adventure trying to see where that gnome had gotten to each day. Fun stuff for a kid! Anyway, I am always on the look out for a cute garden gnome to add to my own gardens. But there is one garden gnome I will not be buying... The Stripper Gnome
Is there nothing people won't pervert? *sigh*

--- 3 ---

I've never been a big fan of Halloween- aside from the Peanut's Charlie Brown Halloween special (who doesn't love "I gotta rock"?). So it won't be any great surprise when I pass on buying a "Creepy Crapper" bathroom door cover.
I'll be taking a pass on the creepy zombies climbing out of the toilet too.

--- 4 ---

I will NOT NOW OR EVER be buying lunch at the "Magic Restroom Cafe"...
where patrons sit on toilets and eat out of toilets. *gag*

--- 5 ---

I won't be buying the men in my family any "Jesus shaves mugs" this Christmas either.

--- 6 ---

I'll let the advertisement speak for its self here...
BELIEVE IN GOD INSTANTLY BREATH SPRAY In need of a faith lift? When you're ready to turn to God, we're here to show you the way. Contains 0.25 fluid ounces of Peppermint Flavor breath spray. *Warning: This spray is a potentially dangerous weapon. Do not administer to individuals against their will. Forced religious conversions will be prosecuted! Just $5.99

I will not be buying adopting any "Zombie-Repelling" pets (I think the small zoo we currently have will keep most zombies far, far away!). But I would recommend getting a Zombie-Repellent pet to anyone who lives in a zombie zone.
Published on Oct 10, 2013-- In the weeks leading up to Halloween, shelters and rescues across the state of NC are urging citizens to arm their households with zombie-repellent cats and kittens. Shelters and cat rescues feel it is their civic duty to be sure at least one of these special cats or kittens are placed in each NC home. With the rising interest of zombies in pop culture, shelters are taking advantage of its popularity and harnessing the meme to find homes for the thousands of homeless cats and kittens in the state of NC. "Since none of the shelters in NC have ever been attacked by zombies and all shelters have cats and kittens, we see the link; with this link we feel it is a public service we need to provide to fellow North Carolinians," says an SPCA spokesperson. "We never know where or when the zombie apocalypse will occur. It best to protect your family by adopting a cat or kitten from a shelter near you." Visit for more information.

  1. There's actually a restaurant like that? And people go there? I can't even... what?

    Actually, I think the whiskey advent calendar is brilliant. I don't like whiskey, but I think a rum calendar would be great, or maybe a "mixed winter drinks" calendar....

  2. Oh yes Caroline, there is a CHAIN of restaurants like that (click the link above). People really do sit on toilets and pay to eat food out of toilets.

    About that calendar...its not exactly the Advent message I want to send my kids. :)

    God bless!!

  3. My daughter's roommate has a shower curtain and bathroom rug that look white, until they get wet, when they look blood read. Needless to say after showers the room is a bloody mess.

  4. RAnn - oh my! I would freak out if I saw that! Eeeeeewww!
