The phat controller

Here’s a novel solution to losing the TV remote between the couch cushions… turn the couch cushion into a remote. Brilliant.

Passing the remote to one another across the room might become a slightly more violent affair though…

From here (they’re actually for sale… for $30. Just in time for Christmas).

Alternatively. You could get one of these sofas that is designed to have things stuck in it…

Snug as a bug in a hug

Everybody likes a hug. Except people who have phobias about physical contact or an overdeveloped sense of personal space.

Sometimes hugging for long periods of time can be taxing. Sometimes it’s not geographically possible. Which leaves the huggy (as opposed to hugger) feeling down.

Here’s some hug help.

For adults.

For babies

That’s called “the Zaky”. Here’s a blurb… if you’re curious…

“f you’ve ever wished for a hand to leave behind so that your baby would feel as if you’ve never left the room, your prayers have been answered with the Zaky.

The Zaky is an ergonomic infant pillow designed by a mom to mimic the size, weight, touch, and feel of her hand and forearm to help her baby with comfort, support, protection, and development. The Zaky can help calm your baby and help your baby sleep better through the night.”

And then there’s those of us looking for someone to be hugged by. Perhaps every town needs one of these

It’s an anonymous “hugging” wall. Because lets face it, having a long haired hippy run up and hug you on the street isn’t for everybody.


Ahh, I love it when all of my favourite things come together. Super Mario Bros and Novelty cushions. Perfect fodder for a post. And you can get them here. I do wonder why cushions are always so expensive…
