You're kidding...right?

Irony....ya gotta love the irony. And the kicker is, you know they're selling 'em:


Yes, they're those little puffs of cotton, like from a craft store...about 1/2" big. There are 12 of them in the package. A veritable bargain.

Ya think??

Lou said...

...and what do ya bet someone'll buy em

Jenny said...

Defintely don't want to get involved in that snowball fight...

~:C:~ said...

I suppose it's cleaner and easier to pack than a lump of coal. teeeheeeheee :P

BlackLOG said...

I can't help but think that the manufacturers have missed a trick with this. They should have packaged them as Snowman Balls and could have charged $2.99 for a pair, let's face it sex sells where as no one gives a shit about poo ....(Sorry could not resist)

Jet said...

Gingerella said...

LMAO! Only in America....

BlackLog: how much you wanna bet they already sell them in adult shops...

Jen said...

Only in America. Someone will buy them. You know it.

book*addict said...

jajajaja!!!! I LOVE IT!!! Where did you find this? It's too funny. If my family had my sense of humor i'd so buy this for all of them for xmas.

book*addict said...

I guess I'm one of those ppl that would buy it.

Maureen@IslandRoar said...

I would've never thought snowmen pooped. I would've pegged them as more anal retentive; you know, being all icy and cold and all.

Spot said...

How do snowmen poop cotton balls?? Seriously what kind of digestive system turns snow and ice into cotton?? That kind of scares me a little...

♥Spot

Gillian said...

Ridiculous! people will buy almost anything with the right marketing gimmick!

Ron said...

Bwhahahahhahahahahaha!

Bwhahahahahahahahaha!

OMG...this is RIOT!

I would definitely buy them because I think it's brilliantly clever!

Yet, I can't help but wonder what they smell like.

Lemon ice drops, perhaps?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

GREAT post, my NY friend!

xo

Collette said...

I'd go to the Dollar store & pick up a bag of cotton balls & re-package them myself to sell! Sell them as poop or balls & for a buck a bag! Or whatever. LOL

Smileyfreak said...

lol Love it!! :)

serendipitous said...

Did you take this photo after you bought them? :)

MeanDonnaJean said...

Jeez, and here I thought that *I* hadda real pisser of a post when I just wrote about the funky kinda "meats" in my local supermarket. I think Snowman Poop tops that shit anyday!

Kathryn said...

Lou: Yup...there were already a few missing from the display. Unbelievable. This begs the question: Why didn't we think of it FIRST??

Jenny: HA! Who thinks up this stuff? I'm still annoyed we didn't think of it first.

~:C:~ HA! Yeah, I guess this is the "coal-alternative" for stockings this year! It certainly is cleaner!! (Stupid, but cleaner!)

BlackLOG: Yes, but I believe they can sell "Snowman Poo" at a child's-eye level, which is where this display was located. I belive "Snowman Balls" would have to go in "Giggles"!

Jet: Thanks!

Gingerella: HA! You and I think alike! I made the remark about selling them in "Giggles" before I saw this! (Great minds, bay-bee!)

Jen:I know! And think of the tidy profit they'll make!

book*addict: Ha! It's a small, family owned store with a little bit of everything...as you can see! (I'm always glad when ppl let me take the photo w/o buying the product!) Ya gotta give the "inventor" points for creativity!

Maureen@IslandRoar: HA! You never cease to surprise me, sweetie! YOU. ARE. HILARIOUS. !!!!

Christiejolu said...

OMG this is too funny! People will buy anything!

Ashley S said...

Pretty funny! Not gonna lie. Stocking Stuffer? Then use them to take off eye-makeup? :-P

Kathryn said...

Spot: THAT'S what scares you?? The women who could walk around in Stephen King's imagination and not bat an eye...and THIS scares you?
We need to talk.

Gillian: I know! Aren't you MAD we didn't think of this?

RON! HA! I never thought if they had any smell! I'm imagining that's extra...then they'd be $3.99! HA!
xoxo

Collette: That's right! Maybe you could market the same thing there...just hurry and catch those drunk holiday shoppers!

smileyfreak: Glad you liked it! Pretty funny stuff!

serendipitous: NAH! That's the beauty of it! The cashier let me take 2 shots. I bought other (normal) stuff, though!

Kathryn said...

MeanDonnaJean: HA! Well, they ARE two different things! I'm heading over to your place now!

dailyseeking said...

I've actually made some before and given it to a family member. I'm too cheap to actually buy it!

Kathryn said...

Christiejolu: 'Tis the season! They figure if you're already in the spending mood.....!

Ashley S: HA! I never even thought of THAT! How perfect! NOW, I think they may be worth the price!!

Wendy Blum said...

And to think I work in a warehouse doing an ordinary job when, if I had had one of those lucid dreams you wrote of,I could have come up with the idea to put cotton balls into fancy packaging and sell them off for $2.99 a crack-where the 1/2" balls fall out,ha ha-as snowman poop. Just when you think you've seen it all...

Wendy Blum said...

...and I have to admit the poem on the package is sorta cute,lol. Could've saved SO much $$ and just bought my boys a couple pkgs. of this!

Allegria said...

Now we know what to get for the person who has everything.

Oddyoddyo13 said...

Of COURSE someone will stop and grab one. Just give it a minute or two.

Kathryn said...

Wendy Blum: HA! I KNOW! I was thinking the SAME THING! (Well, not the lucid-dream part...you are so WITTY, I can't stand it!) Yeah, you know boys wud like snowman poop!

Allegria: Totally! I can think of several ppl who would fit this bill!

Offyoddyo13: Unbelievable. It's gotta be a 500% profit! Maybe more!

Heather said...

Scared to think what kind of person came up with that name for jumbo cotton balls!

JD at I Do Things said...

Oh, for crying out loud.

I have a giant bag of cotton balls in my bathroom. I think the bag was 99 cents. They're pink. Do you think I can sell them as angel poo?

Kathryn said...

JD at I Do Things: HA! Or, maybe girlie-snow-woman poop? I don't think I've ever seen pink cotton balls! Can you use them as earplugs when you have your next MRI??

Alicia said...

Great stocking stuffer :-)

Kathryn said...

Alicia: HA! Yeah...it's pretty funny. I liked Ashley S's idea of using them as makeup removers after Christmas!
