Funny catalog blogs

Last but not least in the "Wish I'd Thought of That" series: blogs that provide humorous captions to home interior magazine photos. I could amuse myself for years on a project like this. The image above is from Unhappy Hipsters, captioned, "The plant wandered over to see what he could do to help."

Catalog Living is also entertaining, offering "a glimpse into the exciting world of the people living in your catalogs."

That made my day week month year. No it's an instant classic. This new damn Mac the school gave is not auto correcting my spelling for me what the heck i suppose i could try to do it on my own since I am a teacher (of the arts we can't spell). Thanks bill and melinda for the Macs by the way ..so weird we love that you have to put a duel platform with your Windows in it that we all shut down but thanks for them really. No teacher i know can afford to go out and buy a new mac every three years not in this city anyway. Thank you for making my day week month year!

We live in this section of Boston where all the "hipsters" supposedly are moving in when I already knew they were here long ago b/c I work in an inner city school and they would have to come to it to vote and the reaction from the kids was "what the heck are they wearing and why are they here wandering around our school?"
The reaction from the so called "hipsters " was "am I in hell? I am so scared i don't even know if I can vote here but its Obama so I can do it" ....oh look a white teacher I am safe phew! but now I have to go home and change my "extra medium" pants and extra medium tee shirt that says the Kink's on it but i wasn't born yet but i love them OMG" thats what we call their clothes because they all look the same while trying so hard to look different without the tight pants and shirts that fit so tight( you could put them on an 8 year old) because i am sweating and want to get out alive who cares about my sate rep lets get out of here before we get hurt or have to god for bid have to ask how to get out of here to a student!

great post!

Thank You!

love unhappy hipsters and the catalog blog (which I hadn't seen.) It doesn't cross the line into mean-- there are a few others that do.

My favorite caption so far: "The second little piggy made his house out of sticks. And while the expanses of glass made for a delightful delineation between interior and exterior, the big bad wolf still blew the whole thing down."
