Happy New Year!

2014 is the Year of the Horse, which makes us even more excited to ring in the new year. Although the Chinese or Lunar New Year doesn’t officially begin until January 31st, we’d like celebrate with a little Chap Hop (rapping in a faux-Victorian style) performed by the always awesome Professor Elemental in a video featuring our Creepy Horse Mask:

(If you enjoy this song, try putting on some Fighting Trousers)

Make your wrapping paper the meatiest and creepiest

When you’re wrapping presents this year you’ve got a big choice.

Do you want to use Meat Wrapping Paper:

Or would you rather use Creepy Wrapping Paper:

As you can see from these GIFs, both styles are eye-popping. With Creepy you get Dental Work, Earwigs, Cockroaches and more. But, with the Meat Parade you get Ground Beef, Corn Dogs, Olive Loaf and more.

It’s a tough choice, so we recommend buying both, which you can do by clicking here.

Harry and the Bigfoot Christmas Sweater

It’s a sinister day in the neighborhood

Mirror Universe Mr. Rogers doesn’t think you’re special, hates that you’re his neighbor and loves our Krampus Sweater. He does still wear tennis shoes because they’re so darn comfortable.

This sweater is a limited edition for the 2013 holiday season. Get your own here.

In Search of…

He went in search of Bigfoot and he found him on our Bigfoot Christmas Sweater. Looking good, Leonard!

Gravy Candy Canes

Gravy makes everything better, even Christmas, which is why we thought there should be more ways to enjoy gravy throughout the holiday season. No matter how bad a holiday meal is, you can always count on good old gravy to cover everything up and make it better. If it’s dry, gravy makes it juicy. If it’s flavorless, gravy packs it full of herb-infused deliciousness.

Gravy Candy Canes taste like grandma’s gravy, but they’re easier to hold in your hand.

We thought dipping our Gravy Candy Canes in actual gravy would be fun! It was not, David still hasn’t completely recovered:

Wookiees love Bigfoot

Talk about celebrity endorsements! Chewbacca sent us this picture of himself wearing our Bigfoot Sweater.

He says, “Rrrrwwrgh, Gwarrrrrrgh, Aargharrrrrawwwwgrrrrragggh.” Translated: “This sweater is warmer than the insides of a Tauntaun. It even smells slightly better.”

The Bigfoot Sweater is a limited edition 2013 holiday special. Buy one here before Chewie’s family snatches up the rest.

World Toilet Day

Today, November 19th, is World Toilet Day. It’s a day dedicated to spreading awareness about improving the lives of the estimated 2.5 billion people in the world who do not have access to sustainable sanitation or clean toilets. If you’ve ever encountered a nasty restroom then you should understand the importance of this issue.

But getting people in the West to appreciate toilets takes a little bit of savvy marketing, says Garvey Chui, a representative for Toilet Hackers. “We aim to make these hugely important issues relevant and sexy,” he told CNN. “For many Westernized travelers — particularly for many women travelers, no matter how well-seasoned — sanitation and access to clean toilets becomes a serious consideration when traveling, but for those without access to safe, clean and private toilets and sanitation, it is more than an inconvenience, it can be life or death.”

World Toilet Day is the perfect opportunity to remind you about our Public Toilet Survival Kit. This kit has everything you need to have a tidy potty experience packed neatly in a reusable tin container that will tuck neatly into your purse or purse. You never know when you’re going to encounter a public toilet with some cleanliness issues, so make sure you’re prepared with this:

Each kit includes one toilet seat cover, two antiseptic wipes and one pair of latex-free disposable gloves which should be enough to keep you safe and sanitary in even the most challenging conditions.

Celebrate World Toilet Day by appreciating your own fancy toilet and preparing for possible encounters with those less fancy (and possibly downright disgusting) toilets by stocking up on Public Toilet Survival Kits and Emergency Toilet Seat Covers:

They’re both perfect for care packages and stocking stuffers. What better way to show your loved ones that you’re really looking out for them? Never be afraid of a public bathroom again!
