Darnit!!

Where was this before Christmas?? Why do some really cool things come out after present buying time is over. Can I get a do over? Can I swap the pair of blue jeans where the zipper falls down all the time for the super cool knife block? Please?

Oh come on. I mean, when I saw thisknifeblock I got really excited. But it was frowned upon by the Husband; as the only male in the household he thought it would send the wrong message to the kids. (one more thing to add my "If I was 20 and living alone" fantasy)

Yet, today, the Husband sent me this instead! knifeheadand isn't it gorgeous!?! I LOVE it. But, I'm sure this is just a tease. How can this be ok but the other one sends the wrong message? I don't care...if I find it on my counter one morning, I'll not be disappointed.

Sure, it's a bit grisly...but then I don't play shoot 'em ups, so there's balance there.

Just remember - Don't cook while angry.

***Oo Oo...a pal of mine sent this to me today! How well timed! It's a festival of Grisly, I say. Find the serial killer; I got 7 out of 10...how about you??

Lol, grisly I'll say. But what a conversation piece. He must have been joking.

I've seen that before, and it still strikes me as indicative of a double standard. If that were a female knife holder and the knives were going through the breasts, women would--rightly so--be shocked and offended. But it's OK because it's a guy? "Oh, isn't that cute! A butcher knife through his penis!"

I'm not sayin' it isn't cute. I'm just sayin'...

Yeah, that was kind of the hubby's POV too. Again, it's the "If I were twenty and living alone" fantasy kitchen item.

Oh Man I wonder if I could get one of those that looks like our secretary. I would put it on my desk and enjoy the day a whole lot more...

I'm with you Lyvvie. I love it. And I really didn't identify it as male so much as just a figure. Ah, too bad my 4 boys would be badly influenced. Maybe when they're all out of the house.

sweeeeet we do not have kids, i am SO going to register for one of those!!

iam not at all ashamed to admit i got 9/10. not proud or anything just not ashamed of being serial obsessed.

Those knife blocks are soooo cool. I want the one with the red guy full of knives! The head is a bit too creepy.

I got 8 out of 10 in that quiz. You could tell a lot of the time by the glasses, the clothes and whether the shot was taken out of a group photo or not.

Very cool :)

Note to self: Do NOT piss off Lyvvie.

Innocent Bystander said...

he he, that knife rack is the best thing in the world ever. Genius!

SafeTinspector said...

That thing looked androgenous to me.
Murderous, clean, and bright red!
I like the look of the first as opposed to the second.

Sylvana said...

I got 6/10. I thought I would have done better, but I am drunk on Nyquil. There was only one guy that didn't look like a serial killer.

That first knife rack is so cool!

Red Hot Sexy Papa said...

Manblogger641 said...

I took the test a while back, and since a lot of people I know read aout this stuff I did ok 8 out of 10. I live the knife racks, I've seen one before like the first one, but it was black and I beive it was in The Bay around Valentines one year. My man at the time, didn't think it was funny.

Blazngfyre said...

I LOVE the red knife block, but alas, I have all men in this house.
I think it would be a real test to their sense of humor (as wella s the macabre).
I'll ask for it anyway ... it IS red after all! ;)

and I scored 9/10. YAY ME!

Lightning Bug's Butt said...
