Stop the presses!

Everybody shut up! Stop what you're doing! Cancel the contest! Drop those groceries, where we're going we don't need groceries. Shut up I say.

You with the baby, tell it to shut up. Okay. Is everyone sitting down? Is the baby sitting down? Okay, pay attention because I just found the worst handmade item in HoHil History. Something so inappropriate in its conception and so disturbing in its final state that it makes Julia's crocheted placenta look like your Nana's Amish quilt.

Feast your eyes on that, why don't you? That is, if any part of your body can still feast. I don't think I will be feasting ever again. That. Is. A. Placenta. Teddy Bear. And it ain't the crocheted kind of placenta neither.

First they came to give me menstrual blood paintings, and I did not speak up because I was not a womyn. Then they came to give me placenta teddy bears, and I did not speak up, because I have never been to Burning Man. Then they came to give me earrings made of spit and flower vases made of soiled diapers, and by then there was no one to speak up for me.

(That's how it goes, right?)

(More information at Inhabitots where I found it.)


  1. at first i thought

    "how cute is that bear in a jar"

    then i kept reading...REALLY??!! i just finished eating my lunch...

    and is that a tag i see in the first pic? is it for sale??


  2. Oh nice ...does it come in kit form ??? Biohazard label ...check.....stuffing...check....thread...check.....placenta...oh crap where did I put that thing.......

  3. I simply cannot imagine what level of crazy believes this... memento... is a good idea. Can you tell me in which city, state or country this little gem originated so I can remember never to visit there?

  4. NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!!!!!!!



  5. This is exactly the type of thing the CPSIA is made for.


  6. Older/other civilizations do things with placenta and umbilical cords, but I don't think we're quite ready for that! The website you found it at has a vote going on, and the "no ways" are winning by a landslide!

  7. I can't post and hyperventilate with horror at the same time...........

  8. Why can't people leave placentas where they belong? In some sort of sterile/biohazard environment, like a WOMB, for Gavin McCloud's sake, NOT a jar. Oh, the horror, the horror...

  9. When looking at this I can think of nothing else but "Silence of the Lambs". I am so terribly scared. Hopefully the person who "created" this was soon thereafter hauled off for psychiatric observation. Seriously.

  10. Words simply cannot convey how I am feeling right now. Most disturbing...

  11. That may be the most disgusting thing I have ever seen. I even thought the bear was creepy before I saw that it was made of ______. I can't even type it. Why did I eat breakfast?
