So you must all be familiar with Frank Sinatra’s song ‘Come Fry With Me’ right? no? Well the maker of this deep fryer has tried to trick you with their puns. For shame! At any rate this deep fryer comes complete with a festive holiday hat on top of the box. Since the box is already opened and the item already used you can guarantee it’s “spotless” inside, if you don’t count the millions of crumbs from the donuts of Christmas past.
So take ol’ Blue Eye’s advice, go fry away. Just plug this one in outside first when making your deep-fried oreos, it may explode with awesomeness!

When two people love each other they usually end up getting married. Weddings  are a wonderful celebration for family and friends. But lets not forget weirdos.  They get married too. And what happens when the odd folk get married? Well they  give out little gifts like this. This specially made shot glass commemorates  their sacred vows to each other by making light of their own lousy gift. Maybe  all of their friends liked to drink, but all we know is someone ‘cherished’ this  item so much that it ended up on a shelf at Goodwill. Oh well, it was a good  try. Let’s hope that marriage lasts longer then the recipient’s love for this  shot glass. Yee-haw!

So here we have an interesting shirt. This lover of beer has passed the elusive  Brewology 101 test. One of the most difficult tests of the drinking world. For  whatever reason the owner lost their title and was forced to disown the shirt.  Or maybe they were disgracefully dismissed from their university… or they  drunkenly donated this to the Salvation Army, one thing is for certain. They  have a drinking problem…

This is a curious item. At a church yard sale I came across this book. A few  questions come to my mind. 1) What caused the buyer to purchase this book, was  his life in danger? 2) Did the book work so well that the buyer needed to sell  the item in order to shake th cops? 3) Was this book so useless he’s hoping to  sell it onto others as a quick way to make a buck?
Either way we can tell that this book was obviously very helpful to  it’s former owner. Let’s hope somebody picks up this treasure and puts it to  good use. So watch your back, hide your kids, and beware of deadly blows!
This book of win was found at a Central NJ Church Yard Sale.

When most people paint they try to create something beautiful, something  lovely. Maybe a peaceful landscape on an spring day… or a picnic on a peaceful  hill. Or maybe even a bowl of fruit. Well apparently this artist didn’t get the  memo. Instead of painting something relatively calming, they painted a  horrifying portrait of Jack Nicholson from the film ‘The Shining’. It’s  horrifying in two ways, first the obvious, Jack’s left pupil and eye are painted  oddly. Oh… and I guess the second would be that it’s a scene from a very creepy  film where the character pictured is trying to murder everybody with an axe. Ah  yes… the perfect painting to hang above the fireplace to welcome your friends.  Hallmark should hire this guy.
Happy Halloween thrifty followers!
