WTF Pinterest?

Between the crafts using mason jars, cupcakes, manicures, 101 things you can do with Modge Podge, upcycling and chevrons, there lurks the offbeat and those things that just leave you scratching your head.  I collect them on a Pinterest board I call .

Here are a few of them.

Every woman needs the best protection during that time of the month. This was designed for the modern, god-fearing woman.

Don’t trust those socialist, godless regular maxi-pads!  These colors don’t run!   God Bless ‘Murrica

Because physical assault and bad grammar are perfect ways to sell your breakfast cereal.

“Fits so tight, it shows all you got.” If this picture is any indication, he ain’t got much.  Seriously, who thought this was sexy??  On the other hand, it was the 1970s and most people were coked out of their minds. Through the magic of Cocaine Goggles, anyone would look hot.

The Victorians Weren’t Kidding Around When They Made Laxative

Back before the 1920s, being regular was a very big deal.  Constipation was the root of all evil and every health woe was usually blamed on constipation.  Here’s a vintage laxative ad.

Guaranteed to scare the shit out of you, or your money back! Those Victorians don’t mess around!

The only thing this inspires me to do is to choke back the vomit that is rising in my throat upon the sight of this nasty creation. Whoever devised this recipe must hate humanity with a passion.

Kathy Kramer

Kathy Kramer has words in her head, so she writes them down. Kiki Dee had words in her head, but she only just said them. Kathy has other things in her head that aren’t so great, but that’s what the medication is for.

Kathy is a freelance writer whose work has appeared in Plains Magazine and eFiction Magazine. Kathy is originally from Wisconsin but her mid-life crisis prompted her to move to South Dakota because she can’t be like other people and do normal mid-life crisis things like dress inappropriately for her age, get Botox or chase after younger men. No. Kathy has to be different.

When Kathy isn’t writing her author bio in the third person, she likes to make things, she likes to read books, and she likes to go outside. Kathy lives with her husband, whom she refers to in these pages as The Hubby or D.

Kathy also likes to hang out on Twitter a lot, especially during football games. Kathy is a Green Bay Packers fan and has been since she was born. She is also a contributor to NFL Female.com, as a writer about the Green Bay Packers.
