Weekly Words Challenge 68!

The "words" for this week were B and Unusual Perspective.

How did you interpret them?

Due to a routine-hair-appointment-turned-three-hour-nightmare last night, my pictures will be posted tomorrow. But don't let that stop YOU. Show us your goodies! No, not those goodies. In other news, a couple of bloggers have mentioned PETA's new (and stupid) idea to start calling fish "
sea kittens". The theory is that people will stop eating fish if they associate them with something cute, like a cat. After hearing this, my coworker wisely stated, "Won't that increase fish consumption in China?" Touche.

Next they'll petition for the rights of broccoli and have nothing left to eat.

If you haven't joined the fun yet, go
here for details. We also have a Flickr group for easy shareability. Not only do you get to add "Lowly Foon" to your resume, but you get to find out the new words at least an hour earlier. Happy snapping!

The words for next week are:
Town Tourist (Be a tourist in your own town!)

Daily Etsy Pick:
Barack Obama Inauguration Canvas Poster
Boo-berry Monster Mini Camera/Ipod/Phone Holder
Tattoo Knuckle Gloves

WTF Etsy?:
Barack Obama Body Lotion
De'cat'pitated Mouse Head Cat Toy
Bad Ass Bride
Set of Four Merbot Prints

Doesn't the "e" in Peta stand for ethical - how does that translate to renaming fish? Their kids will be ridiculed at school for not knowing what a fish is. Do they dress up their pets too? That isn't ethical in my mind, just desperate.

Love the cat toy - it is so bad it's funny.

Bummer on the hair. Mine are up.

With regard to PETA, Um, yeah.

I have a sudden craving for kitten rolls. Mmmmmm

I want the knuckled tat gloves that say Last Call.

The cat toy is funny. "When I think of class, I like to think of this cat toy." It's like the opening to Great Expectations.

I meant A Tale of Two Cities but you get the idea.

LOVE the mouse head!!! Mine's up :-) It was fun this week, Tink, thanks!

I love the "town tourist" idea for next week. That's going to be great.

I saw your comment on Knight's blog that your bosses wouldn't let you guys watch the inaugural. If I had known that I would have sent you a link to the Ustream page that was live streaming it. The video was perfect too.

At 20 January, 2009, Blogger moo said...

I played! I'm psyched to be back in the midst of it again. WOO!

At 20 January, 2009, Blogger Chris said...

Um, hopefully there were no tears involved in the hair appointment?! Now I'm scared - I have a routine haircut scheduled for my lunch break tomorrow...

At 20 January, 2009, Blogger Tawcan said...

*sigh* I knew there was another reason to participate. Now I have to start ALL.OVER.AGAIN.

I didn't get a spork. And, I was so dedicated but life stole me from my blog life and reading somewhat.

*sigh* No spork for me. [She exits saddened and with head hung down.]

mine are posted but they kinda suck. I have an unusual perspective dedicated to you southern folk though so go check it out.

and LOL about the Obama body lotion, now that's just freakish weird.

Ahh, the Petards.

Hey, will someone tell them that the increase in farming will destroy the habitat for land creatures?

I have an idea.

Let's eat the Petards! Petard shrimp, petard stir fry, petard pie... mmmm petard pie.

I'm a day late, but mine are up :)

And um...about PETA....yeah. Weirdos. Sea kittens indeed.

Mine were posted yesterday, but then I rushed down the street for an inaugural party. I made the teenagers carry the big pot of "bailout" (taco soup). They were all, aren't we taking the car? And I gave them the evil Green eye. It was a heavy pot.

Sorry about your hair. I think that is why I've been cutting my own for the past 18 months.
