Have A Retro Bathroom Experience With This Polaroid Toilet Paper Holder

polaroll-toilet-paper-holder-600x600

Nowadays most selfies are taken in a bathroom anyway which is why you totally need this retro Polaroid camera T.P. holder. It’s a novelty item but totally functional with super easy installation. Don’t take my word for it, the Discovery Store has this to say about this must-have powder room accessory:

“Probably the most stylish toilet paper dispenser in recent history, this nifty holder bears an uncanny resemblance to the classic polaroid camera. Feel free to do your business right in front of the lens, though – luckily, this camera only produces toilet paper rather than embarrassing, potty-bound photos. A near-perfect replica right down to the smallest detail, this holder will channel that retro chic, eighties-era spirit right into your bathroom. Don’t settle for a dull dispenser and be tickled when you tinkle!”

I’m seriously cracking up! Check out more pics below.

Over 300 New Emojis…Still No Friggin Shark!

With so many emojis to choose from, there should be more than one options to express your conversation without any words. And with the new 300 icon additions from the latest iPhone 8.3 update, I would expect at least a shark this time around. NOPE!

There are, however, tons of new gadget icons and a brand new diverse “people” category including faces and people with multiple skin tones and family structures. I’m glad that Apple has accepted family and marriage diversity…I wonder if this update will be available to lawmakers in Indiana??

Click below to see screen shots of all the new emojis and how to update your phone with the latest release.

Artist Tries To Guess What Your Tattoo Looks Like From One Sentence!

c5-studio-john-hernandezSuper talented graphic designer John Hernandez of C5 Studio creates beautifully vibrant portraits, stunning scenery, and is launching a comic Tainted Love in June.

Last week, he got on Facebook and challenged a friend to describe their tattoo in one sentence and he would try to draw it as close as possible. Without having seen the tattoo, the result (to the left) had me in stitches!

Of course, it has all his friends dying in laughter too and so the requests “Ooh Ooh Do Mine” came pouring in.

He managed to “re-create” over 20 tattoos, none of them close to the original, but they are all brilliantly literal. Actually a few of them, could be awesome tattoos on their own.

Check out all the hilarious designs below.
