Horse Head Mask receives presidential handshake

Why yes, these are photos of President Obama shaking hands with someone wearing one of our Horse Head Masks. This awesomely surreal moment occurred on Tuesday night, July 8, 2014, as the President was greeting people along the streets of downtown Denver, CO.

Proving once again that there’s no telling where our Horse Head Mask might show up next, the photo above was taken by Jewel Samad and the one below by New York Times photographer Doug Mills.

Of course, it didn’t take long for The Internets to react in hilarious fashion, which is how we arrive at this amazing third photo.:

Shana, our one and only High Priestess of Rubber Chickens, recently made an appearance on King 5’s New Day Northwest. On April Fools’ Day, while sporting a massive pair of Man Hands, Shana showed Margaret Larsen and the studio audience a selection of products that make great pranks on a day devoted to mischief.

It’s a delightful demonstration of some of our favorite new items and classic tricks:

Return of the horse-headed squirrel

You probably remember these amazing photos of a squirrel using our Horse Head Squirrel Feeder that we first shared a few weeks ago:

“Birthday-cake flavored everything sells”

Dan'l enjoys cupcakes

Sometimes there’s nothing we like better than a rich bite of cake slathered in sweet frosting.
So many people enjoy cake so very much that USA Today recently published an article by Bruce Horovitz about the trend in birthday cake and frosting-flavored products currently on the market. Included among the products they mentioned was our very own frosting-flavored Cupcake Toothpaste:

Novelty product maker Archie McPhee’s Cupcake Toothpaste hit the market in 2011. Spokesman David Wahl says one dad e-mailed his kid’s comments to the company: “He says it isn’t like he’s brushing his teeth anymore — he’s frosting them.”

Taking care of your pearly whites while enjoying the sweet taste of frosting sounds like a dream come true, which is exactly why we made it happen.
