Apparantly, Amazon doesn’t think I’m a serious person

So, presumably based on their spectacular powers of psychic detection, Amazon recommended this to me: Black & White Wiggly/Wobbly/Googly Eyes 100pk.

A hundred pack! Because I guess a dozen Wiggly/Wobbly/Googly eyes wasn’t going to cut it for all my googly eye needs.

I’ve never bought anything arty or crafty from Amazon. I have no idea where this shit came from.

Oh, the best part is that thirty two Amazonians bothered to rate their Wiggly/Wobbly/Googly Eye purchase. Most people were delighted by their Wiggly/Wobbly/Googly Eye experience. And then there was this guy:

Bought these in the hope of using them for random stuff, unfortunately, not all of them have a sticky back, only the small ones do, which makes most of the pack useless, pretty unhappy with them to be honest.

Unhappy. Let down. Disappointed. Wanted to stick them on random stuff. Thwarted.

What, me? Okay, yes. Yes. I was tempted.

So invest 75 cents in a tube of glue, lazybones.

I was looking for some of those last year. I was gonna superglue a pair onto Brrt’s head on top between his ears.

Or on his butt-cheeks.

Y’know …. To freak friends out when they visited.

Couldn’t find any. Pity. Mighta scared the coyotes away before they eated him a month or two later.

Damn, wish they had suggested them to me. I actually use googly eyes on the back of my MINI on the badge where it says Cooper. Perfect spot to put them in the o’s. 🙂

Do not underestimate the mirth in a well-placed set of googly-eyes 🙂

Who WOULDN’T be completely overjoyed with 100 googly eyes, regardless of adhesive misfires?

There’s always a workaround, sez I.

Randomness thwarted. Chaos averted. World saved.

And so it goes.

I could really use a good laugh today. Maybe you could put some googly eyes on Obama.

Well there’s a modern kick of sticking googly eyes on objects in a store like CDs and taking a picture. It is mildly amusing at least, unlike planking or whatever.

I wonder how much trouble one would be in, if one stuck large googly eyes in the O and P of the stop signs in parking lots? …

If it’s made by Coopers, shouldn’t it be barrel-shaped?

Mrs. Compton- You should add a little drooling tongue hanging down from “Cooper” to supplement the googly eyes staring at the bacon. Bacon, yumm.

Where is the outrage…that someone got paid think about this long enough to write an article, and some editor got paid to consider it worthy of publishing?

Feynmangroupie, I’m glad those local hacks are out there spewing the stuff.
Due to anger management issues, I’ve been “trying” to avoid the more serious garbage proffered by nationally syndicated hacks since the election.
Tough row to hoe for an info junkie.

I thought “Abbey” had died some time ago, but it was her sister “Ann Landers”.

Googly eyes remind me of the singed pink bunny floating in the pool in Breaking Bad.

I love googly eyes!! I have a “teasel” animal with googly eyes, cockleburr ears and a wicked set of thorn horns. The eyes make him look slightly demented…..
