In our wide and varied travels across the information superhighway, in addition to the fierce and fabulous, we encounter the insane, the arcane, and the absolutely friggin' ridiculous. Sometimes the paraphernalia, tchotchkes, and fashion disasters we come across are so atrocious we have to vent our disbelief and horror, but know, dear readers, we share only the crème de la crap with you.
Despite the misleading name, Ugly Dolls were pretty cute. Next up were GIANTmicrobes, adorable stuffed animals made in the shape of viruses and bacteria. Our fav is Rhinovirus. What a cutie! But then, we stumbled upon the Bandage and Scab Plush Toys ($10), an anthropomorphized scab and his trusty friend, bloody bandaid. We're sorry, but there is no way these buddies are going to make it in the world of ugly-but-cute plush toys. Sure, we can handle monsters and deadly, invasive microbes, but we will never snuggle with bodily bi-products. Even if you slap eyes and a big goofy smile on 'em, mucus, blood, scabs, and pee are never making it to our stuffed-animal pile.
