Craftin' with Aunt Flo
tampon_earring_cropped.jpg

God, I freaking love Google sometimes.

My girlfriend is MySpacing out and says, "How does my cousin get those little hearts around her name like that?"

"Probably some little snippet of HTML code," I say. "Let's Google it."

I enter html heart. Third hit on the list:

Bloody Tampon Heart Earrings.

(Don't barf in your bongs just yet fellas, that's just red food coloring in the photo. ETA: Photo cropped due to popular demand/nausea. Uncropped pic after the jump.)

Much more than just a simple one-off joke, though, TamponCrafts.com actually has well-written, detailed DIY instructions for this and several other tampon craft projects like a Christmas tree topper, a Menorah, a Thanksgiving turkey, a toupee (yes!), and even...a pan flute. Yes, a pan flute. Made of the applicators. And it really plays. A whole octave.

Check out video of Beethoven's Ode to Joy after the jump...

Bloody hell... This is so disgusting...

But they say that if you find something disgusting, somewhere there's a guy jerking of to it. Maybe in Australia.

Hell, that's nothing. My Auntcle Bert can get two octaves WITHOUT the tampon in.

There's also a bass accompaniment, but we make him/her put sheets down on the floor when he/she breaks that funk out.

reminds me of the 'art' from a few years back that consisted of an entire filing cabinet full of the artist's used tampons (funded w/national endowment $$--therefore, controversy erupted)...grosser than gross--but then again, reuse, recycle, yada yada yada.....

That does remind me, I need to put Carrie in my NetFlix queue.

That's actually a different craft site, Jeni. I can understand the confusion, though.

This is going to make it hard for me to enjoy strawberries and icecream for a while.
