ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Etsy (via Geeksugar)
I wouldn’t buy that one either. It’s obviously used.
riding the crimson wave? there’s an app for that.
Ahh, menstrual humour. The only form of humour both greater and lower than toilet humour.
Because, like 6th graders, we’re terrified of the dark, the wet, the warm, the messy, the bloody – the female.
Because of those fears the creation of life was reassigned to the pristine and sterile mind of man/God.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God… Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.” John 1
“All of us have become like one who is unclean [women], and all our righteous acts are like filthy rags [used pads]…” Isaiah 64:6
And so we have the suppression of sex/women/the gay/the dark, and all the true horrors that go along with that.
Embrace the pad.
Oh, ffs. Hi, I’m a feminist. Things that are covered in menstrual blood are gross. Things that are covered in other bodily fluids are gross, too.
Is that….quilted endometrial tissue?
I stand to be corrected, but I think the squiggly lines may be pubic hair. I believe stray pubes are part and parcel of the whole sanitary pad humour iconography.
really? can’t say i’ve ever had that issue.
ps. it was only a matter of time.
Fair enough, I’ll discharge myself from the discussion.
No, it’s epithelium.
The red really sells it *shudder*
“Creative” the same sense as the Pull My Finger apps. Crass, at best. An artist should aim higher, in my opinion.
Nasty because it provokes thoughts of menses? I don’t see anything nasty to joke about… or do you find say ear wax nasty, too?
#5, yes, indeed, I do find earwax to be kinda nasty. Foul, even.
Yes. Don’t you? Of all the evils Harry Potter unleashed, ear wax flavored candies were by far the worst.
Do you not?
I once resorted to using a pad as a dressing for a blistered foot while doing a trade show; I recall it being embossed with wavy lines a bit like that.
Now, if this thing was totally realistic, it would be white with a blue spot from that mysterious fluid they use on advertisements.
Well, it would be good theft protection. I mean, if a mugger found that on you, they’d likely let you keep it. . . .
If I were CEO of Tampax, I would require all my execs to carry their laptops in these, and proudly unfurl them at meetings with customers and vendors.
All the pictures I saw of this a couple of days ago depicted it all in white. I think someone photoshopped the red color.
The Internet: A series of (fallopian) tubes.
@ #1, #4: Wow guys. It’s a joke. It’s because the product it is covering is called the iPad, one of the worst names in marketing history, and so it is playing off of that. Must all products random crafters sell on Etsy be boring and, dare I say it, dry?
Wouldn’t this case be more appropriate for a Flo TV?
Maybe it’s white until you put the iPad in it, then it turns red.
My ReCaptcha words were ABORTING MR WTF?!
