Grocery Store Artifact: Subliminal packaging

For some undefined reason, I wanted to purchase the entire shelf stock of these gloves. The packaging just caught my eye and viscerally tugged at me in some way that urged me to buy it. I guess I was pretty appreciative of the prospect of being able to firmly grip and repeatedly wring a taper of rag in order to get rid of excess filth while at the same time keeping mine or someone else' hands perfectly clean and unsoiled.

However, I eventually departed the store store without purchasing any of the gloves. Oddly enough, my wife had a sudden headache and didn't want to do any more shopping.



  1. Fantastic work! This is my first comment, but I've been reading your blog for a good little while now, and it's absolutely great.

    I would say something about checking out my blog, but I don't want it to detract from the compliment.

    Wait, did that just...hmm.

  2. I bought a whole box of these gloves and not only went blind but hair grew on the palm of my hands after wearing them!!

  3. I bet those would be great for punching the clown or flogging the dolphin or pulling the goalie or general cleaning around the house when you don't want to get your hands wet or dirty.

    Can't see what else they'd be used for.
