In honor of Columbus Day, aka Explorers’ Day, aka Indigenous Peoples’ Day, aka It’s Pretty Fucked Up That We Still Celebrate This Monster Day, Zazzle is currently offering sales of up to 50% off during their “SALE The Ocean Blue” promotion. And who wants to worry about genocide or horrible puns when you can SAVE?
In our modern, workaday, jet-setting, go-go-90s lives, it’s customary to think of food as something that just appears in supermarkets and restaurants on command. It’s just there when you want it, as normal and blasé as perfect interior temperature control or a pocket computer which can contact anyone in the world in seconds. I click a few buttons on the Internet and a half-hour later someone hands me a bag of food and leaves: YAWN.
Food is safe, boring, normcore.
We’re sick of it, and so we came up with some new prints to help bring back a little bit of that old-school, hunter-gatherer edge to the kitchen. You know what pairs well with a pork tenderloin? Menace.*

Pair them with one of our robot grocery tote bags for twice the terror. Good thing you’re cooking with a knife in your hand; I hope nothing else goes wrong.
* Menace, and Simpsons jokes.
If there is one thing that more than three decades of life has made indisputably clear for me, it’s this: I don’t want to have to get up. And since I haven’t yet mastered Homer Simpson’s move…
the only rational conclusion is that some sort of ambulatory assistant is essential. However, as previously established, I don’t trust robots, even robot housekeepers.
* An anthropologist sister of mine tells me this is a chimpanzee, and that chimps are apes, not monkeys. This is an important distinction that I definitely care about even a tiny bit, so please feel free to imagine the “The More You Know” rainbow and music in your head. This post already has enough irrelevant graphics.
Sometimes there’s a man… I won’t say a hero, ’cause, what’s a hero? But sometimes, there’s a man. And I’m talkin’ about the Dude here. Sometimes, there’s a man, well, he’s the man for his time and place. He fits right in there. And that’s the Dude, in Los Angeles.
From one of our favorite movies of all time, we’ve got a new design lamenting an iconic tragedy. We’re talking about drawing a line in the sand here! Across which you DO NOT-
Well, I guess what we’re saying is:
Available as a print here.
Even better, we’ve reworked the quote a little to fit onto a card for that special someone you care about, whether it’s a bowling buddy, a redheaded lover, or a Little Lebowski Urban Achiever:
The inside can be customized to your liking. Some suggestions from Nothing-Mundane:
And if you don’t like this design…
I guess that’s the way the whole durned human comedy keeps perpetuatin’ itself.
If you grew up when we did, playing Oregon Trail was pretty much mandatory. At least we learned a lot of survival skills from our play: ammo is more important than food; rabbits are impossible to shoot; and there is no way to get a wagon across a stream without potentially killing somebody. In fact, you pretty much can’t do anything without potentially killing somebody.
Well, we made a series of designs reflecting some of our favorite Oregon Trail moments. There’s the “Rampage” (don’t pretend like you haven’t done it):
The “Superman” (no human could manage such a feat!):
And the “Inevitable” (sorry about the cholera):
(make and customize your t-shirt here)
Get yourself some classic Oregon Trail gear, and don’t forget to pour a little out for all those buffalo left along the way.
