Anthropomorphic Objects

I’ve heard people talk about certain objects that have certain anthropomorphic tendencies for them, like the Pixar Lamp for example. I feel this way about about clocks, vintage oscillating fans (Mitch Hedgeburg: I have an oscillating fan at my house. It goes back and forth. It looks like the fan is saying “no.” So I like to ask it questions that a fan would say “no” to! Do you keep my hair in place? Do you keep my documents in order? Do you have 3 settings? LIAR! My fan lied to me. Now I will pull the pin up. Now you ain’t saying sh*t!). Also old radios, and oddly, shopping carts. I got this idea from Graphic Hug and then I ran a search on flickr & came up with some images. Let’s caption them, shall we?

“Fine! Be that way.
Ok, FINE, I will!”

“Door #1 or Door #2?”

“I can’t believe Johnson finally made a break for it…”

Anyone else have any more caption ideas?

Arm Warmers

I cannot for the life of me understand why these aren’t more popular. Cute? You bet. Practical? Absolutely. I’m going to buy some to coordinate with my favorite shorter sleeved tops for wintertime toastiness. Also, they are perfect for biking since my arms always get cold while the rest of me is overheated. Here’s some I found on etsy & elsewhere. While we’re at it, notice the amusing theatrical posing & background choices some of the sellers have chosen. Who knew arm socks were complimentary to park benches? I sure didn’t.
