Uh, yeah...there's somebody in that knitted body sock...

That might be a cool premise for a segment of a horror movie.
2013-04-22 09:24:17 PM  
I actually enjoyed that. Very creative and artfully executed.

That first part was so sad...I honestly felt so bad I wanted to show up at her door with some flowers just to see her smile. I guess I'm a big softie. I mean...I'm an asshole to be sure, but underneath that I'm a big softie. And under that I'm kinduvan asshole again, and then under that I have a layer of fluffly nougat. And then under that there's sortuva chocalate-caramel layer, and then I'm an asshole again.

Crochet is a a gateway knitting activity mind you....

Wouldn't just buying a vibrator save time, money and effort?

I hear these and rock-pick hammers are best-sellers in the Ace Hardware: Attica Edition catalogue

Wife had a lumpectomy ... twice in short succession (that's often the case).  Soreness resulted.  My sister sent her a stuffed lion, as it helps the arm positioning at night.

I've been replaced.

I think one model should be named "Broomhandle Johnson".

Cup his balls of yarn.
2013-04-22 11:19:03 PM  
Are those black heads or Howdy Doody freckles?  Would that qualify for an MMF?  I need answers before I pearl two.
2013-04-22 11:19:15 PM  
Great - one more thing for the ladies to dry-hump.
2013-04-22 11:19:17 PM  
Yes, but why concern yourself with all of that when you can have yourself your very own inflatable sheep?

Hipster.  Saw it coming a mile away.

So, speaking of blow-up sex dolls, has anybody ever heard of anybody actually getting it on with one?  I've only ever seen blow-up sex dolls used as props at bachelor parties or for practical joke purposes.  I've never heard anybody admit to actually using one for it's (supposed) intended purpose.

Ancient bathroom-wall graffiti:

-My mother made me a homosexual

-If I buy the yarn, will she make me one, too?

Then she knitted some tattoos on him and he started staying out all night and became distant and uncommunicative. He quit his job at the Yarn Barn to follow his dream of being a drummer. One day she came home to find her whole life had unraveled and he'd run off with a RealDoll who "really understood" him.

The ones knitted into the shape of a woman are similar, except of course for the sewn-on breasts, and the implanted, uh, tube-like device in the lower, uh, crotchal region.

They are definitely real. My aunt gave one to my dad as a gag gift once.

/As far as I know, it has not left the box.
//Probably a better market for them in Wales.

Put it on the couch in front of the game and you'll never know the difference!
