Honesty Is, Indeed, The Best Policy


So on Friday, kind readers, we discussed what happens when a crapft is simply mislabeled. Well, not simply mislabeled. Utterly and completely mislabeled. Today, though, we're going to take a look at crapfts that are indeed labeled correctly. Correctly and un-ironically. This, for example, is named "one-of-a-kind plush toy", which is, to be fair, totally apt if not a touch understated. As is the accompanying footnote: "(Disclaimer: the stitch work is not great.)" In this kind of a situation I really appreciate this crafter's honesty, as my first reaction upon seeing this object was "what a delightfully normal and well-sewn object I have here in front of me on my computer screen. I am seriously going to contemplate buying this perfectly ordinary and painstakingly crafted plush toy. If only I could own something with such a high level of craftsmanship."
And then I would have wasted 24 dollars.

Many thanks to Patty G for sending this one in!


  1. Looks a bit like a ginger root... A ginger man? Definitely a grade 'D' horror film prop. :)

  2. Well... it certainly IS "one-of-a-kind". I do agree with the previous poster who said it resembles a ginger root.

  3. Before I read the other comments, I thought it was a ginger root! I like the fact they've place a measuring strip beside it, as if the size is that relevant!

  4. Genius. It's not everyday we find a new species!

    Fun stuff!!

    Your Friend,

    "ONE of THE GUYS"

  5. Ok I'm gonna buck the crowd and say mandrake root or dancing poo...Oh sorry....One of a kind, badly stitched ,dancing poo.....

  6. dancing poo, ha ha! maybe its mr hankeys cousin, dancing lou

  7. And only one thing for sale in this shop?

  8. Trogdor sez:
    "Imagine the joy such an interesting and unique creature could bring to your home or office. This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity."

    Funny, when I imagine the "joy" this, um, thing could bring to my home or office, I am filled with dread. It's a one of a kind opportunity (?) all right, an opportunity to show everyone that your eyesight has failed, or that you are a clueless, tasteless boob.

  9. Hey, remember that African doll in The Trilogy of Terror?! That's what this scary ass ginger root doll looks like! It should be illegal to sell shit like this. ~fear~

  10. Did anybody else notice that they tagged it as 'repulsive'?
