Two Questions

1. Can you tell that that's a ceramic platter with ceramic breasts jutting out of it?

2. Do you think that if you bid on and won this item at your kids' school auction, you would take it as a sign that you should drink less at future auctions? Or more, so as to pass out and be unable to lift the paddle and say, "mermaid with breasts! I need that!"

Actually I didn't notice the boobs until you mentioned it. But personally even without the boobage that is a pretty fugly platter. Next time drink more and step away from the paddle!

I think the real question here, is how much did you pay for it?

I was just about to ask the same thing as wfbdoglover. My other question is whether it is supposed to be functional or strictly a display piece.

I thought it was an octopus, but I like it much better knowing it has boobies!

I think you should keep right on drinking because you are going to have THE conversation piece at the next dicktale party.

I found your blog from a comment you left on a little bit squirrely. You are just fabulous. I can't wait to read more!

You bought that willingly?

I say drink more. The answer is always drink more.

I think somehow it must have migrated across the ocean. The mermaid is Warsaw's symbol so we have topless mermaids ALL OVER THE CITY.

Yes, I see the boobies. I would buy the platter and give it to a boobie loving friend for Christmas. Unless, of course, you paid an obscene amount. Then you should just suck it up and enjoy the boobies yourself!

And exactly what do the SPOONS look like?

Yikes! Drink more, drink more!

Maybe you can sell it on Ebay for a profit??? There are a lot of crazy, booby mermaid-loving folks trolling Ebay....Maybe.

My sympathies. You should win the supportive parent of the year award.

Yup, boobs. First thing I noticed other than they seemed to be chocolate covered. Keep drinking and it will continue to be your favorite plate.

I'd need to drink MORE to live with that. Which sounds like a GREAT idea.

Best plate ever! I like how the only physically "accurate" part is her boobies.

Drinking too much an auction? Oh no, I've never done that. Especially not at an auction for a Christian school where we applying...wonder why we didn't get in? Then again, they didn't have booby plates or we probably would have had a police escort out.

that would be the kind of thing that would put in the "wrap up for white elephant gifts" box at my house.
unless, of course, you really do like it?'s gorgeous.

My question is, WHY were they selling this thing at your kids' school auction?!?!

Did one of the kids at your kids school make that? Because I think that might make it even funnier.

They serve alcohol at your school's auction? WHERE can I find me one of those schools?!?
(that's my FAQ submission for you)
