The way I see it, the instant it goes on sale or ends up reviewed in a furniture blog, it's responsible for any and all crimes against aesthetics and good taste. Yes, your old pal the Mayor will punish artists and crafters and retailers alike. Now shut up and let's talk rugs.

Tighty whitey floory whories?
But this is actually a really good idea. How many of you are total sticklers for putting your clothes away, but secretly wish you could look like a slob? Oh boy, do I have a solution for you!
This is a nice way to be both OCD and messy at the same time. It's scattered clothing, but only within a rigidly defined parallelogram. Win win!

Sit your kid down for a nice after-dark viewing of "Pan's Labyrinth," then send him to bed with one of these waiting smack-dab in the middle of his room. For optimal results, illuminate with a red nightlight.
Not terrifying enough? Well, dear reader, I leave you with one of my all time favorite WTF photos. Click for the large version and maximum enjoyment.
