There’s sperm shoes for goodness’ sake (picture heavy post ahead!)

I have a secret to confess…

I absolutely love SkyMall.  It is my favorite part of flying and I flip through it with reckless abandon as soon as I sit down in my seat.

When I saw the floating sunglasses, I just knew this was gonna be a great trip! Sidenote: don't most sunglasses float? Why would I want them to float away, anyways?

The problem with SkyMall is that it always leads to more questions than answers:

Question #1: What the hell is going on here? You people do realize that my dog will slit my throat if I put her in a "pink rugby thundershirt"?

Question #2: For the love of all that is good and holy, who designed the logo in the middle of the shoe? Do people really not know what that looks like?

Question #3: This is really the device that will permanently attach me to the Matrix, isn't it?

Question #4: Who has a human skull they need to display in a frame (upper right corner)? More importantly, where did it come from?

Question #5: Can I use this as a light saber?

Question #6: You guys know pure oxygen is toxic right? And oxygen creates oxidants.

Question #7: Does this really have wide spread appeal? How about a money back guarantee? For the record, we might have actually bought this if the bar wasn't within the month.

Question #8: What. The. Hell.?

Question #9: Can you really vacuum a pool? Why had I not realized this was a thing? And why are there so many types of pool vacuum?

Question #10: Can someone please explain this to me? Why would I want a leprosy ridden armadillo holding my beer?

Question #11: Why doesn't Keri L already own this? Also, will this keep the dang kids off of my lawn?

Question #12: What should I do if we have obviously incompatible Zodiac signs? Also, which Zodiac are we using?

Question #13: Would putting this on random peoples' cars make me a total creeper? Is this even legal?

Question #14: What is the active ingredient and will it also kill me?

Question #15: Is it called baby because it will give me the skin of a baby's butt or because it's small? That's an important distinction.

I always go through the 5 stages of grief when reading Skymall.  Seriously.

Plane to Columbus is boarding now!  I’ll be back with a brief recap of the weekend in the next day or so!

What’s your favorite part of traveling?  Do you love Skymall?

    I adore sky mall. My life will be complete when I one day see someone actually using one of those lap pillow wedges on a plane.

    My college had an oxygen bar. That’s probably why my friends were so dumb.

    My dog needs a thunder shirt. We swaddle her with a blanket during thunderstorms, like she’s a baby. 🙂

    OMG…..that stuff is crazy. Though I can say there are LOTS of vacuums for pools and the one that goes by itself at the bottom of that page is a pain in the butt. I life guarded and always had to dive down and flip it back over….stupid things!

  3. Omg this post made me laugh so hard!

    I am def gonna buy the zombie garden statue.

    I love skymall so much it hurts.

    I think question#8 can be applied to all of the above. I clearly don’t fly enough. Why have I never been introduced to this amazingness!? The armadillo is my favorite. I have an armadillo story for you. I’ll explain later.

    I love Skymall!

    And yes, you do vacuum a pool, and even more, there are a whole BUNCH of different types. 🙂 It’s how you clean pools. We used to have one, and as only child (at the time) I was the one ‘blessed’ with that job.

    These are flippin’ hilarious!! I love Sky Mall too, I always wonder – who really orders this stuff? I am totally getting the zombie for my yard. Now that’s a classic. It would make a nice Halloween decoration. Now, about the shoes – you know how fast those things are right…seems like a perfect design for the shoe!

    LOVE it!!! Lol!! Gotta love Sky Mall! 🙂

  8. themadbohemian says:

    Hilarious! I can feel out state getting funnier as you descend from the sky!

  9. Sara says:

    HAHAHAHA! Thanks for a good laugh on Monday morning.

    For the record – no OTC bed bug treatments are effective against the bugs. I can’t say whether or not it will kill the person!

  10. Mandy says:

    Love it!!! LOL! I too also read the Sky Mall magazine whenever I fly. I’m always telling Mark (both seriously and not) – OOOOHHH – we NEED this! LOL.

  11. i’m dying over here. i’ve missed your blog so much!!! sky mall is seriously ridiculous.

  12. Kat says:

    omg I love Sky Mall too!!!! It’s worth a flight lol

    This post is as addicting as watching those infomercial on late nite tv. I am not going to lie..I would probably buy a few things from that magazine
