If you've ever been to Walt Disney World, you've probably seen large people lumbering around gnawing on turkey legs the size of Yule logs and getting turkey grease all over themselves. No doubt your reaction, like that of most people, was: "I wish there was a way to make my car smell like those people!"

Well guess what happens "when you wish upon a star?" Your dreams come true, in the form of this turkey-leg air freshener! It's not an actual turkey leg: It's a car air freshener made from a piece of cardboard that looks strikingly like a piece of cardboard that vaguely resembles a turkey leg. And it smells as good as it looks! That is why this is the Official Turkey Leg Air Freshener of both Dale Earnhardt Jr. and the Popemobile.

    You've probably seen the TV commercials for Perfect Polly, the battery-operated pretend parakeet manufactured in China from genuine plastic.


    These are special glasses that use an amazing scientific principle — possibly photosynthesis — to bend light beams at a 90-degree angle. This means that when you put these glasses on, instead of seeing what's in front of you, you're actually looking straight down.


    If you are not putting a brassiere on your hen (or self-mutilating parrot) (which would be a good name for a rock band) you could very well be contributing to its DEATH.
