Jon, Alone

One of the funniest blogs I’ve come across in recent time is “Garfield Minus Garfield” by a guy calling himself Travors. Basically Travors has gone through old Garfield comics, Photoshopped out all of the characters except Jon Arbuckle, and posted the result as is. As Travors states on his site, “Who would have guessed that when you remove Garfield from the Garfield comic strips, the result is an even better comic about schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and the empty desperation of modern life?” It’s so good that even Garfield creator Jim Davis reads and enjoys it.

Today’s “Garfield Minus Garfield” is especially good. I had to share:

Giggling Maniacally Over Here

Just when you begin to think that the world has run out of great bookish ideas and truly awful puns, Perpetual Kid comes out with a new cutting board.

Romeo & Julienne

ROMEO & JULIENNE CUTTING BOARD

 

the all-time classic cutting board

Shakespeare was certainly on the cutting edge of theater, and now you can be, too. Use this fine quality wooden book for slicing and dicing and then store it on the shelf with your cookbooks! It’s 6″ x 9.5″, constructed from solid hard beechwood, pre- seasoned with a light dressing of mineral oil.

A perfect hostess gift! Just read what the critics are saying!…

“Tis better to have chopped and tossed than never to have chopped at all”.

“Sharp witted and cutting edge”

“A true slice-of-life adventure”

“I laughed, I cried, I diced”

I want to read this book. :)

hot_mama.jpgDear Civilians,

It has come to my attention there is an ongoing debate about the greatest superhero of all time. Batman. Spider-Man. Wonder Woman, Wolverine. All of them have their fans and detractors, their champions and critics.

Well, I’m here to put an end to this silly confusion once and for all. Because I’m fun, I’m fabulous, and I am the greatest superhero alive. Period.

My name? Fiera. Protector of the innocent. Superhero du jour. And all-around fabulous individual.

My powers, you ask? Superstrength, for one. And I’ve got a temper to match my fire-wielding abilities. I punch and flambe my way through the ubervillains and other evil doers who want to take over the city of Bigtime, New York.

By night, I’m also a member of the Fearless Five, the greatest superhero team ever to roam the streets of Bigtime. Right now, we’re hot on the trail of Siren and Intelligal, who villains bent on taking over the city. Not on my watch, they won’t. Also making a pest of himself is Johnny Angel, who wants revenge on the ubervillains for killing his predecessor. Angel’s not a bad guy, but he should know better than to get in my way. No matter how sexy he is.

In real life, I’m Fiona Fine, one of Bigtime’s premier fashion designers. I’m known for my bold choice of colors, fabrics, and patterns. My couture clothes, of course, are to die for.

You can read more about my adventures and general fabulousness in the latest Bigtime book from Jennifer Estep, appropriately titled Hot Mama (Berkley Trade; Nov. 6, 2007; $14; ISBN-10: 0425217345; ISBN-13: 978-0425217344).

Sweet girl, Jennifer. Although she could so use a fashion makeover. The girl is way too fond of cutesy T-shirts, and she doesn’t even own a pair of stilettos. Poor thing. She’s so misguided … 

Warmly,

Fiera aka Fiona Fine

Member of the Fearless Five

Protector of the innocent

Superhero du jour

As dictated to Jennifer Estep (who will never, ever wear a pair of stilettos)

Threadless?

Looking for a new t-shirt? Look no further than Threadless.com.

The Young Explorers Society shirt is perfect for the armchair traveler.

Fairy tale enthusiasts will appreciate “Moral of the Story” and “Parable Paranoia”:

And if you get the pun in the next shirt, you are obviously my kind of people:

This is just kind of beautiful:

Halloween Costume?

Not for me, but maybe for someone! 🙂 Slighty “naughty” (but SFW) so the picture is behind a cut.
