Just a Squirrel Tryin' To Get A Nut




This is a salt and pepper shaker set that I bought from a seller on eBay. Her auction description assures me that Mr. Squirrel is casually riding a mushroom down the road - but I'm going to call this one as I see it and will address the elephant in the room:


Penis.


Mr. Squirrel and his phallic mushroom car were also subsequently and harshly judged by the residents of the Kitschville Knick-Knack Shelf  as well.




He was forced out of town and eventually took refuge just over the county line with others who had been cast out .





Until next time,
x's and o's,
Eartha

Oh my gosh you are hilarious, I just peed my pants. I agree it does look like a penis sorry Mr. Squirrel I guess you're too liberal for the rest of the crowd.

Beth said...

That doesn't even remotely resemble a mushroom!

Kudos for buying that, it's fantastic.

Penis was the first thing I saw, so you're not alone!

Tami Von Zalez said...

I'm an "old widow woman" and have been out of the penis game for years, but to the best of my recollection, that's what they look like. :) I have to admit that I was already cracking up by the time I finished reading your title and knew this was gonna be a good one.

I must say that the alarm clocks do look sufficiently outraged to have been the ring leaders of the movement to tar and feather Mr. Squirrel. I bet they wouldn't be averse to burning books either.

Heck yeah that's what I thought the millisecond I saw it. Need to get me some. Ummm. Salt 'n peppa, I mean.... luv YOU EK!

art deco dame said...

RetroSandie said...

OMG!!! I can't stop laughing! Thanksabunch! My stomach hurts and I just ate!! Funny, I thought the SAME thing when I saw the car. Every time I go back to look at the pic and see the LOOK on the squirrel's face .....I can't stop laughing. My eyes are tearing up ...You are too funny! I noticed the molting kitty on the rejects shelf ...gahd....I can't stop laughing! My poor kitty doesn't know what's wrong with me. If this was a video, it'd be viral by now!!!!

Laura Huey said...

Now everyone knows squirrels and genitalia just don't mix.... Eartha, I love you for playing with your stuff and posin it just right, and makin this awesomeness for me to laugh and laugh and laugh about.
But why is that cool cat in the reject crowd? Is it the shedding? Gotta be the shedding cuz that's one swell face :)
You made my day (evening).

Well, I guess he's compensating with his set of wheels.

SusieQT said...

I can only imagine what it must look like when you're shaking salt out of that thing...

Sara In AZ said...

I ain't buying it, it's TOTALLY a mushroom! :)

Trina44 said...

This is a good one, my husband just read the post and said, "Where there's nuts, there's squirrels." Haaaaa...

Lauren T said...

The Mister and I are both dying...too funny! And the expression on the squirrel's face is hilarious.

chutti said...

I totally feel like I know you since your stuff would enjoy hanging out and making trouble with our stuff.

We too have an other side of the bookcase crowd. The ringleaders are Charlie Ruggles and Clancy-they can't resist whooping it up. That's Charlie with Cucumonga there. Sheesh.

I can't resist sending you a snap of naughty Ennis (NSFW) who just naturally sits this way:

Oh my gosh! I am dying. Please stop everything else you are responsible for in your life and just write things all day that make me laugh! Thanks Eartha!!!

Laura said...

Bless you Eartha. I had to wait until the very end of my day for a giggle, but golly it was a good one. :)

Georgia Peachez said...

That squirrel sure has a big nut.

What Remains Now said...

Absolutely hilarious. Exiled to the island of misfit kitsch. I think you may have the makings of a book there.

Asparagus Pea said...

That just made me laugh out loud at 8.30 in the morning which is quite something. Also makes me feel sooo much better about the contents of my last blog post at asparaguspea.blogspot.com
(I'm new to all this and I always get a little nervous after I hit publish)

Lisa said...

That last picture made me actually laugh out loud. The hopefulness of the other county line knickknacks. The one winking eye of the styrofoam snowman seems sinister!

Robert Dulaney said...

he does insanely casual for riding on such a proportionally large phallus. haha.

darkelady said...

Tee hee. That is hilarious. My mom collected salt and peppers and she would be hysterical over this.

Dottie said...

Hahaha! Oh, this was priceless! Yes, it looks like a penis, but I love the bitchy looks the clock salt and pepper shakes are throwing at that poor squirrel, who was just trying to get a ride!

Mick said...

As I wipe Dr pepper off my computer screen, "WE HAVE SHUFFLEBOARD ON WEDNESDAYS!" Brilliant hahahaha :D

Chad Barlow said...

Hysterical. I wonder if the Squirrel Shakers are part of a series? Oh my gosh, what does the Possum drive?

Johanna said...

I love you.

Greener Pastures--A City Girl Goes Country said...

Omg, you are hysterical!

Jacob said...

I love it, the island of misfit kitsch!

Those clocks look really offended

Jolene @ JoRetro said...

I'd like to know what search words you typed in to discover this hot treasure.....lol

Jeanie B said...

Oh his poor little face!
And his arms folded in defiance of those bullying nik naks who are sore because they don't have penis cars. Bless.

Lisa said...

Haha that's so funny! Poor little squirrel in his unfortunate phallic mobile

tammyCA said...

Hahaha...and, the misfits shelf! The more the merrier.

jaymie said...

hey... I've never been invited for shuffle board.

Stacy @ Stacyverb said...

That squirrel sure looks smug. He must be very proud of the size of his...mushroom.
