children should of course be encouraged to play with sharp/dangerous/toxic products whenever possible.

it builds character.

" I can't think of a single good use for [Dick]Tracy Party napkins and [Dick]Tracy party cups other than serving ware on the Island of Misfit Toys."

Pretty good line.

irradiation of testes methinks foul sir.

Jeez, is that site hosted thru a 28.8 modem or what?

I suppose I should be concerned about the Super Sharp Killer Ninja sword I just bought for my nephews huh

Star Wars Queen Amidala 'Galactic Body Wash'

heh, would someone actually nuy this?
2002-02-21 07:35:57 AM  
I've been in $1 stores where stuff was marked 3.99. Thats very annoying.
2002-02-21 07:39:54 AM  
I guess you use the Galactic Body Wash after you've worn the Really Offensive Perfume...

Anybody else get hit with a pop-up add from this link that has the gall to try and load a Flash file, with a little 'Loading' animation while it doesnloads? Exactly how many people do they think will sit there waiting for their pop-up ad to load? My excuse is that I was overcome by curiousity, but to my credit I've already forgotten what the ad was for.

Similar, older, and funnier...

And here...

I think it goes all the way up to 'Things from the Dollar Store Part IV, but I'll spare you in case my link code doesn't work and this post is a bunch of garbled crap.

My favorite thing I ever saw at a dollar store was a little statuette of a young rosy cheeked child, akin to a precious moments. Holding an AK47 wearing Chicom fatigues and a Chicom ammo harness. so precious.. It was NOT made as a joke..

Site getting Farked.
2002-02-21 09:28:47 AM  
Yeah, really, it's hard enough to access XE as it is, and considering they're a Fark affiliate already with a large fanbase, do we NEED their article posts on Fark?

XE fans are obviously going to find out about new articles once every couple of months. But we certainly don't need to further crush them by having a ten thousand newbies go click happy.

Remember the old SNL skits with Jane Curtain and Dan Ackroyd with his dangerous toys and halloween costumes.

How about a dozen used barf bags for a dollar?
2002-02-21 11:20:44 AM  
I was in a dollar store a couple weeks ago that had lugage for 19.99
2002-02-21 11:38:36 AM  
Yes, that site loads slow at home.

And plus, cansomebody please learn to break up their paragraphs into smaller pieces.

It's called readability, people.

5.2 on technique, 5.1 on style.

If I were to snap at a strip mall, I would be sure to buy about five packages of the steak knife sets. There are 4 in each set...$1 each set. Imagine what the news would say:

"Death of 20 People, Each Killed By 25 Cent Knives"

Anyone else notice the new title of X-E?

Betty White's X-Entertainment.com

Looks like Betty took a lesson from Drew.

I'm sorry, but that was one of the funniest things I've read in a long time... maybe it's just my mood tonight, I dunno. That's reminiscent of what X-E used to be liked.

That's good shiat.

The "Super"(!) Dollar store near me has fake squirrels and prairie dogs that make noise when you squeeze them. We bought the entire display.
Fake squirrels are always good for something.

Just testing out my posting skills... nothing to be alarmed at.
