This made me laugh out loud at random times, all day yesterday.

Do need to watch out with thay though. Paypal expressly forbids using their services for anything adult (commissioned artwork is the one I hear about most since a few friends are artists) and will lock down your account quick if they think you are doing anything along those lines.

Bought a hard **** from levnubhin's part-out. The box arrives:





Looks pretty innocent so far, which probably means that glitter is going to explode out of it when I open it.





Hmm, just advertising and a ****. Well, maybe the advertising is for something hilarious, like a clearance sale on factory-second My Little Ponies.





Nope, clothes.

Joe needs to buy some SADFab parts. Sean didn't weld the box enough on monks.

Uh, Joe, when I zoom way out on that photo of the box, I can read your address just fine. The pixelation resolves pretty well when the photo is viewed in small format. Just FYI.

I promise not to mail you any plush ponies.

Interesting, hadn't noticed that.

Mistakes were made.
I've been awake for 40 straight hours at this point, and they were not pleasant ones.
Plus, the video was taken originally to share with a Google Hangouts group.
Also, one hand operation is difficult with sideways phone.
Also, I'm not entirely human.
Also, beer.

Many well deserved beers.
I do concede your point; however, and I will endeavour to do better.

Reverse prop - that was ******* awesome. After seeing your address, that's EXACTLY what I was thinking I'd have done... maybe will still do, and yes, open outside with fire exinguisher if you get a package from Genesplicer

It was hilarious to make. Many questions were asked in my household. Wish it would have stayed in one piece for the journey though.


Vertical video- was on purpose due to the aspect ratio of the object being video-ed, *** off

So I received an unexpected package in the mail today, addressed from none other than rleete. I like to imagine that when Mr. Leet first signed onto a BBS back in the 80s, he used the handle K1ng0fL33t.




Hmmm. No dicks, no cats, no ponies.



I hesitantly open it at my main desk, expecting confetti dicks and glitter to explode out of it.



Nope, looks totally safe.

I withdraw the contents, and open the small white box.



It's a pen. A really nice pen, in fact.

I read the note:



Holy cow! I was expecting a my little pony smeared with lube or something, but this thing is friggin' gorgeous!





I can't seem to get a good picture which really shows off the depth of the color in the wood, but it's fabulous. Also feels extremely good in the hand. Weighty, but perfectly balanced, with a surface finish that is at the same time perfectly smooth yet reveals the slightly porous texture of the wood. This is by far the nicest pen I've ever owned. And the other contenders all have the name of some law firm or another stamped on them. (My favorite is from Goodwin Proctor, LLP in Menlo Park, CA, mostly because it also came with a little tin of breath mints with "GoodMints" printed on it in raised lettering, and the "GP" brand embossed into each individual mint. That's a law firm with way too much money in its marketing budget, and was one that I really aspired to work for, back when I was in law school and cared about such things.)


Thank you, sir. I shall indeed use this pen as per your wishes. If the next few months unfold as I expect, then I shall sign many contracts with it.

negative cats for lack of dick jokes in packaging (context: thread)

positive cats for extreme class and generosity. I bet this pen rides shotgun with Joe now.

Blame Joe. I only asked him to post a pic and say who sent it. It was he who posted it here instead of random pics, like I expected.

Understood and acknowledged.

I'm not a package stuffer myself, so I can relate.
