I was surprised when the USB dog that dry humps my laptop showed up in the mail.

Almost everything I have bought while drunk, was stuff that I really wanted, but felt like I couldn't justify the price while sober.  Haven't ever taken a single drunk purchase (mostly books) back.  Although, there is one regret.  While out drunkenly shopping with a friend, a couple nights before Christmas, I bought my then, three year old son a child's drumset from Toy R Us.  He absolutely loved it, and would play with it first thing, upon getting up every morning much to my regret.

Tourists sure love lobster pots. You seem them on cars going home to Ontario and Quebec in the Maritimes, and on cars leaving New England for similar destinations in the US.

I never really thought that alcohol might be involved in the purchase, but yes, come to think of it, it might.

What do they do with all those lobster pots? Recreate a sea shanty in their basements? Decorate seafood restaurants? Use them to trap very stupid rats that don't remember they have excellent gnawing teeth and can gnaw through wood and rope?

My guess is they make coffee tables and end tables out of them using a sheet of glass or plastic. To my mind, this is the most plausible and attractive solution to what to do with a lobster pot more than a hundred miles from the nearest lobster.

Of course, if you have a really gigantic aquarium, you could always put the lobster pot in as a decoration, perhaps with a life-sized schapander suit and a big treasure chest full of your favourite jewels and gold. You could even build a small sunken castle or ruin in there on a 1 to 20 scale or so.

If anybody has proof that I am right, please feel free to post it here.

Australians apparently attempt to buy second-hand microwaves and then back out of it in the morning.

I was moving continent away from Aus and slowly putting all my stuff up for sale on gumtree. The microwave went on at 1am on a saturday night/sunday morning. By 2am I had six emails expressing interest. I replied to them all saying 'yes, still got it. Email or SMS back to arrange a pickup time tomorrow' and not one of them did.

Never trust a late-night gumtree email.

/sold it the next day to someone sober...

What sort of person asks a question without using a question mark, and pluralizes "martini" with an apostrophe?

What sort of perverted monster buys diving equipment on line? Won't someone think of the children?

My dad bought a Lincoln mini SUV thing on Ebay while smashed one night and didn't remember until 2 days later when the guy called him for a delivery schedule. He still has the thing.

Now that I know pie makers are a thing might have to get drunk and buy one.

Lobster Pots are normally pretty bland:

However, show someone this bit of trivia and then the Sponge Bob crowd thinks it might be cool to have one as decoration:

I suspect it is even cooler when you are blitzed.

Wait, a lobster pot is a lobster TRAP?

Then what the hell do you cook them in?
