Have you hugged your kitty today?

Today is National Hug Your Cat Day, which means you should stop whatever you’re doing and go hug your feline friend(s) just like Molly and Spyke are doing here:

But don’t let today be the only day you show your kitty how much they mean to you. You know your kitty is the best kitty ever, so why not get the trophy to prove it?

Make it official by awarding your cat with a World’s Best Cat Trophy:

Buy one here. Then hug your kitty again for good measure.

Horse Head Mask sighting

Proving once again that our Horse Head Mask can pop up just about anywhere, we recently spotted one in this funny video created by Russian videographer Michael Tivikoff, a.k.a. Mr. TVCow. Entitled “How Gamers Eat Their Food“, the video demonstrates how people who play different video games (or indeed the characters from those games) have wildly different (and silly) ways of eating.

But we think the best part is that the demonstrations are presented to a person wearing everyone’s favorite creepy Horse Head Mask, who listens attentively while munching on a leafy salad:

One chicken to measure them all

Joe J Thomas, voice actor and creator of the blog Joe’s Dump, recently proposed an awesome new system of measurement, The Rubber Chicken Standard. What with the Metric System failing to take off in the US and his opinion that the Imperial System isn’t very intuitive, Joe argues that it’s high time we all agreed on a new standard of measurement:

I’ve chosen the Archie McPhee Deluxe Rubber Chicken as a new standard of measurement. The reason is simple: every culture knows what a chicken is, and a rubber chicken is easier to use because it won’t spoil.

Rubber Chicken

One rubber chicken is the basic unit of measurement. (How many chickens tall are you?) But Joe goes on to propose the use of a “Kilo-Chicken” (kc) for measuring really large objects (It’s the size of 1,000 Rubber Chickens):

And the “Micro-Chicken” (uc) for measuring really tiny things:

Treat your cat to a taste of luxury

Tin cans are for average cats, this one is silvery. While it’s true that your cat would eat out of a tin can if it had to, surely it would prefer to dine from a silver-plated ceramic Luxury Cat Dish. The 5″ diameter bowl is the perfect food container whether you’re serving caviar, seafood-flavored kibble or wet food. It holds 10 fl. oz., which is a lot of caviar!

Speaking of caviar, the Luxury Cat Dish is also food safe for humans, so feel free to use it for cereal in the morning or get down on all fours and chow down besides your kitties. They may appreciate this so much that they’ll even acknowledge that you exist. (Sorry, no guarantees there.)

Shana on New Day Northwest

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:

You’re the Star. Yes, you!

It’s just like your parents always told you—you are special. But, if that’s true, where are your paparazzi and clingy fans? It’s time for you to take command of your destiny. This set of five hard vinyl You’re The Star figures is the adoring public you so richly deserve.

This flock of tiny, adoring photographers and autograph seekers will watch you brush your teeth in the morning, wait for you to get home from work and then hang around outside of any event you go to. In fact, occasionally you’ll want to yell at them, but don’t do it. You don’t want to be featured on TMZ.

They’ve only got eyes for you.

Complete your horsey look with Horse Hooves

There’s nothing worse than having people look at you in your Horse Mask and saying, “I can tell you’re a human because I can see your hands, you loser.” Now it’ll never happen again thanks to this handsome pair of 14″ long latex Horse Hooves:

Horse hooves fit smoothly over most adult hands. Like a pair of cloppy gloves, they instantly add a dash of centaur to any outfit. We recommend wearing them to math class and using them to stomp out your answers or to make shaking hands extra cloppy. Also good for dressing as your favorite rapper, 50 Centaur.
