We pity da fool who doesn’t like the Mr. T Tea For One tea pot and cup set. For more of B.A. Baracus’s mohawked mug (pun!) frowning back at you, consider pairing the tea set with a Mr T teabag holder. Both are creations of one Mr. Lenny Mud, who sells his pop culture-rich housewares on Etsy. Among his collection: a Star wars Storm Trooper leftovers bowl, a Dr. Who mug and the Lionel Ritchie cheese platter pictured below.
Seeing a can of Unicorn Meat on offer, or surreptitiously stored amongst your other canned good, will give the unsuspecting quite the shock. Though what’s inside the can is not edible and certainly does NOT look like the photo to the right. Instead, the can contains a dismembered stuffed unicorn. Check it out in the photo, before, especially before giving this canned unicorn meat to a kid (lest you inadvertently send a young’un into years of therapy).
You needn’t be a master brewer, experienced chemist or German to make your own beer at home. The Beer Making Kit, sold by that vondrous purveyor of cool stuff Uncommon Goods, makes home brewing simple, easy—and fun! The kit includes a 1-gallon glass fermenter, tubing and tubing clamp, airlock, thermometer, packet of sanitizer, stopper, blowoff attachment and the hops for one brew. In addition, you’ll have to buy or otherwise obtain self-closing beer bottles (such as these). Everything else you’ll need, such as pots and stirring spoons, are either common kitchen items or easily found in a grocery store.
Go on! Really! It’s okay to be tempted by the Adam & Eve Disappearing Mug. Pour hot liquid in and watch the first couple’s fig leafs disapear. It will shock your coffee guests to Biblical proportions, though you’ll feel snake bitten if you put this mug in the dishwasher. (As with all such mugs, the heat of a dishwasher will eventually ruin the disappearing affect).

Ice cream makes people smile. And, says Vondrous: If it makes you smile it’s health food.
But now German researches have developed a creamy frozen treat that really is healthy. Or, at least healthier: ice cream made from flowers. see more
