Splat Mat Take II

I just wanted to give an update on the Splat Mat post from yesterday.  I submitted a comment to Just Buzzin By’s website and within 10 minutes got a phone call from a really nice lady who said that yes, the smoking skull was picture on their website sample, and the reason the sample is no longer up is because they’re sold out of that pattern.  In fact, it’s one of their most popular mats.  She also said I’m welcome to exchange the mat for a different pattern, but I wasn’t listening anymore because the very nice lady had just said the P Word, and she had said it about something in my posession.

Popular.  Popular?!  Could this Splat Mat be the first in a string of events bestowed upon the popular crowd, like sitting in the back of the bus and being beckoned to the cool kids’ table in the cafeteria and never ever wetting his pants in elementary school and all the way down the line to where Vincenzo has a short but very lucrative career as an Abercrombie & Fitch model which lands him a spot on Real World?

I am so keeping the Splat Mat.  At least I know Vincenzo will be in good company on that seedy street corner some day.

  1. Sheesh, if everyone is jumping off a bridge, does that mean you have to as well??? The peer pressure involved in purchasing splat mats is unreal. I guess if you want to stay in the popular crowd, you must teach him how to roll his own cigs, get that turtle tatoo (finally) and walk with a swagger.

  2. You dorkus. It’s soldout because frat boys buy it to put down around the keg… or maybe the bed. Hmmm. Congratulations.

  3. I am still pondering what ever happened to putting a cheap tablecloth under their seat?

  4. We just got a dog instead. Nothing had time to hit the floor. The dog is now dearly departed, but I’m still not getting a splat mat, I don’t care how edgy it is.

  5. I just want to tell all my commenters I really love you. You are much funnier than me most days!

    And Lizgizzy: Keep the dog system, but only if you can teach it to smoke a cigarette.

  6. Oh sure, today it’s the Splat Mat, but tomorrow it might be the Starbucks Snuggie. Just be careful you don’t sell out too fast too soon to the P word, dearie. It gets ugly. Very ugly.
