  • Your Personal Tuna Shopper

    November 28, 2006

    While I was in Tuna recently, as a service to my readers, I scoured the retail landscape looking for this year’s must-have holiday gift for that very special someone in your life who has everything. No need to thank me.

    Today’s featured item is this one of a kind hand crafted item made completely of seashells! Place him jauntily atop the washer or beside the sofa on the front porch to welcome visitors. Nothings says You Are Special like a seashell Collie. $17.50. Shipping not included.

    Check back throughout the season for more weird crap one of a kind hard to find speciality items shipped directly to your doorstep from downtown Tuna.

      My first thought when I saw this was that it was a replica of Reveille, Tx A&M mascot. It would be the perfect gift for the Aggie who has everything (except perhaps good taste) Now you simply must tell us the “real” name of Tuna because we all want to purchase this lovely work of art!

      Thanks so much 🙂 The frightening thing is – someone probably thinks it’s just great!

      I made that. Do you have a problem with it? Do I detect a bit of sarcasm in your post? And if I could think of one way to convince you that I really made it and had it placed in Tuna, I’d keep up the charade.

      Why do I all of a sudden have a huge aversion to seashells?

      There is no accounting for taste.

      And to think, I bought that Elvis-on-velvet painting instead of this great find! Woe is me!

      I think my MIL would love that, sadly. It looks just like her furry son. I mean, dog.

      As my dad would say, “That’d be a bargain at half the price!”

      Yeah, even that is too much.

      If you tell my mom that you give her two for the price of one, she’ll take it…that’s how much she loves bargains.

      I’m de-lurking to say that is absolutely hilarious, and I love how you write with witty sarcasm. : )

      Sorry, but I think I have to buy that just for the laugh factor.

      I hope you don’t mind, but I emailed that picture to all of my friends.

      I am also delurking on this post…Too, too funny. I was actually given a jewelry box made of shells once. It was lovely. But at least it wasn’t a collie. My, my.
