Frightfully fantastic or just plain weird?

I love Halloween. It's always been one of my faves. But I've noticed some very odd (even for Halloween) decorations out there. Take a gander and tell me what you think.

First we have a yeti in a cage. Hm. Okay. I'd venture to say it's not even a good yeti.



How about "Rot-off the Deadnose Reindeer?"



A football jack-o-lantern for all of you sports fanatics.



A skull beer bong for all of you heavy drinkers. (I think this one is actually kind of funny!!)



A little ghost mouse to spooktify your workstation.



A dog statue with an orange feather boa. I am partial to this one. I love dogs. I love orange. And I guess now I have to love boas. He is quite cute all dressed up.



And lastly, my favorite! (I do have a weird sense of humor though)...I found these several years ago at JoAnn's of all places, and had to buy some. I gave one to Hubs because I thought his students (both children and adults) would get a kick out of it. I also gave one to a coworker, and she LOVED it.

For your consideration, the cat jelly bean dispenser, which releases black (licorice) and brown (peanut butter) jelly beans from its hiney when you press on his back. The tail lifts and out pops the "poop."

Ok, the reindeer is just creepy.

The boys got one of those poopy animals at Christmas. I think it was a reindeer.

Ok, the rudolph thing kind of freaks me out. But the feather boa on the dog was awsome... I would do that. If I had a great big giant stone dog anywhere. :)

Love the DOG!!! Thanks for stopping by! We sound a lot alike except for the vegetarian thing (sorry). I have a new blog to follow!

Hi! Yes, I did darken my hair. I went back to my natural color because I was tired of keeping up with the highlights. :)

Well, most of them border on weird, but I love the ghost mouse! That's cute! Thank you so much for your help with the beaded spoons issue. Your information was so helpful. Looks like I'll have to take a shot at it!
