Found in Decluttering

Over the holidays, I had a fit of decluttering and in the process, I unearthed this little gem. What is it, you may ask?

No, it is not a hot water bottle, as some have guessed.

It's an eyeball whoopie cushion. Just what every home needs.

My optometrist spouse brought it home from a convention several years ago.

I'm not really sure why a person needs a ANY whoopie cushion, let alone one with a bloodshot eyeball on it. This brand of humor is obviously too sophisticated for my simple brain.
As soon as I found it in the laundry room drawer, I knew it was excellent blog material. Unfortunately, Spouse beat me to it and posted it on his Facebook page for his optometrist friends to enjoy. They seem to get a bigger kick out of it than I do.

I knew instantly it was a whoopie cushion. Because I played a practical joke with one, once (and posted it on my blog). But I never saw an eyeball on one before! Hahaha!

I also knew right away what it was. Of course, I have a 9 year old son who thinks whoopie cushions are hilarious, and many of the men I work with have whoopie cushion widgets on their computers, so there ya go . . .

LOL What a funny whoopie cushion. Definitely never seen one quite like that. Now I'm wondering what treasure you will unearth next. :D

Well, unlike Daisy and Connie, I did not know what it was. It looks like it would make a great balloon.LOL That's where my brain is.

Ummm...we've gone through half a dozen whoopie cushions in the last couple of years since Jamie discovered them! LOL! Enjoy!

This is funny! I knew it was a whoopie cushion but found the eyeball even funnier!

Cheri said...

Yep, as the mother of 2 (soon to be 3) boys, I DEFINITELY knew right away what that was. And you can tell your spouse that I'm pretty sure my 5 year old would LOVE the bloodshot eye on it as well;)

Well EVERYBODY needs a eyeball whoopie cushion. Gee whiz, I thought that was totally obvious! I mean, chocolate, beer an ipod and an eyeball whoopie cushion...what more could a body need?!?!? Yeah. Very funny!
