sores, ass fat and wall-crawling insects

Boing Boing had some really great stuff today. They had this story about an absolutely disgusting wallpaper pattern made-up entirely of ants, a piece on a boat that runs on liposuctioned ass fat, and information on where one can procure printable cold sores that can be affixed to the ubiquitous images of models we find ourselves surrounded by every day. The ant thing freaks me the fuck out, and I can’t stop itching as I sit here thinking about it, but I find the other two projects are really inspiring… And, by the way, my ass now powers the Ypsi Food Co-op on cloudy days. And, all those cold sores you see on local models are my doing.

    I’d prefer a wall full of sores, and ants crawling out of the mouths of models.

    I like the printable herpes sores. That’s a real timesaver instead of having to make my own. Speaking of defacing beautiful women, did you catch last night’s cycle premiere of America’s Next Top Model? I think this batch may the saddest, most mentally unstable lot yet. I’m so creeped out by Natasha the Russian mail order bride that I can’t even make a Rocky and Bullwinkle joke. My money’s on one of the plus-sized girls to win this year.

    I’ve mentioned the liposuctioned fat several times in response to silly honorifics expressed by others about Dingell and how he’s gonna save us and Michigan’s economy.

    Several people are purchasing, collecting and hauling liposuctioned human fat from clinics … also animal fat from slaughterhouses … and using it as an additive or virtually “straight” in diesel engines. I think it’s a great idea.

    If somebody could collect all of the CO2 in the atmosphere and jam it into a gigantic tank (like those we used as kids in B-B guns, we could pop ourselves around town quite nicely.

    I had a friend in St. Paul (MN) many years ago that has roaches in his apartment. He’d squish’em as they ran across his walls and left their creamed carcasses there, primarily as evidence for his landlord, but also to awe his friends and shock his visitors … the bodies DID make a “pollacky” kind’a design. And after we’d toot a bit, the walls sort of came “alive” with the critters. When the lights were out, the walls DID become literally alive!
