Personally, I can’t wait until they make a fridge ornament featuring this Merman!


So far this has been my Gayest Post Ever, so I’m going to balance it out with some extreme heterosexual manliness!


There! The LBPs prove that I’m as straight as it gets! [Spits on floor to reinforce point.]

Please, help us put a shirt on that thing!

    why do I get the sneaky suspicion that Rip Taylor has the whole collection of those on his ‘ice box’?

    The third merman with his mer-tini (har har) will absolutely be seeing Sex & the City this weekend. He cannot wait.

    Ethel Merman…brilliant.

    Huh… when did the Village People become the Village Merpeople?

    I’d ask if he was going to wear his Mer-nolo Blahniks, but I don’t know what those are.

    Can’t help but think of Zoolander in situations like this:

    About the time the ice caps started melting. It seems their adapting.

    oh my. merman….have to wonder about…procreation. …..ugh. bad imgaery. run away!!!!!!!

    i guess merpeople are people too. shouldnt just be limited to swimming in the sea and living large!

    as for shirt idea, i was thinking of designing one that says “im a real man. and i have the leather underpants to prove it. want to see?” something along those lines. might be a wee bit too long in any case….

    No such thing as too long when in leather undies. Too bad the forum rimshot graphic doesn’t carry over here.

    No thanks, I will stick to my rigorous Sea Monkey breeding program. I invested my life savings in these things from the back of a 1970s comic book and I will be the Sea Monkey King or by Poseidon I’ll know why!

    A word of caution: yogurt and Sea Monkeys don’t mix. Don’t ask how I know, but trust me on this.

    In your FACE, Mer-men!

    Every girl wants to be their pal, every guy wants to be their gal… or something.

    All this is very enlightening, but what real women want is – The Baconizer!

  • 16 ms chii on May 29, 2008 at 7:33 am

    awesome. ill have to get right on it….after i finish watching more riffing. ;)

    i’d probably modify it to something like im a real man and i have the leather underpants to prove it.
    then the graphic would show the LBP. LOL!

    or another one would be a man isnt a man unless he’s got LBP. :) (include pictures here)

    It doesn’t so much look like Swayze as it does Gordon Ramsay. But I salute the sentiment.

    Who else was disappointed this guy wasn’t included?

    The only true Mer-Man!

    It’s looks-ism, I tell ya!
