Who Wants the Anus Plate?

Anus plate is the one on the far right.


Christmas is coming up and since I stay far away from the Christmastime freak shows of Black Friday, the mall, and the local Wal-Marts, I did some internet shopping the other night.

Don't judge. At least I don't wait until Christmas Eve to purchase my gifts.

Somehow, I happened upon this website that had some cool paintings, then I saw a tab called objects. Featured on the objects shopping tab were the Consumption Plates. Here's the description:

Consumption is a five-piece place setting for use during the mental, physical, and spiritual act of consuming. The dishes are a map of the digestive tract, from mouth to anus. They are a reminder of the processes that are taking place within you while you are eating, promoting an exercise of mindfulness.


Now, on the website, you can scroll your mouse over the picture featured on top on this post and you can see a different plates for each of the features of the digestive system. You can see the saliva glands, the esophogus, etc, etc all the way down to my personal favorite: THE ANUS PLATE. I know right? What a perfect Christmas gift! I mean, what screams Christmas better then eating your holiday dinner off a plate with a picture of a butt on it. This might be the perfect girl for The Holiday Blog Exchange. Bahahhaa!

They also feature a sterling silver sperm necklace. What woman wouldn't want a sperm necklace to go with that special dress?
Please don't leave me comments about how juvenile I am. I'm already well aware of this fact. I just REALLY have nothing better to blog about today and I'm in a social bloggy mood.

I had an MRI on my knee on Monday and tomorrow I find out the results. Cross your fingers for good results!!!

Now that's taking 'mindful' a bit far.
All good MRI thoughts coming your way.

If Beth doesn't want this, I don't know who would! If you didn't know what they were though, they're actually very cool looking paintings.

Emz said...

dude this is one of the oddest things I've seen in awhile...i guess it might help me eat less

ShutUpandRun said...

Everyone needs an anus plate. Or a rectum bowl. Or a sphincter spoon.

See I can be juvenile too

FruitFly said...

I'm going to declare that this whole post is downright AWESOME!

Amanda@runninghood said...

oh, I think I got you in the gift exchange. So glad that I know a bit more about you now.

Molly said...

Why am I not surprised that you found anus plates?

Good luck with the MRI, hope you're on the happy pills now. They go well with beer.

ajh said...

I had a very stressful day.....actually the whole week so far. And this post just cracked me up!!!! Thank you. I needed a good laugh.

Shana said...

who the hell are you?
and what are you doing blogging twice in one week?

Char said...

Internet shopping is for those with superior intellect and less tolerance for the holiday-frenzied masses.
Not sure what outfit a sperm necklace would go with. Surely it'd have to be something skanky.

Jamie said...

oh my goodness. that is hilarious! it's everything I've always wanted...

fingers crossed your mri comes back all good.

Katie A. said...

I'm with Jamoosh, I hope I get you! LOL!
Crossing my fingers for you!

Johann said...

Now that is some crazy gifts! They'd work well if given to the right person. Good luck with that MRI results!

Jennifer said...

I'm giving pottery this holiday season, just not sure it will feature an anus or intestines on it! Funny Post.

Jesse - Run To The Border said...

Hmm, an anus plate? Yeah, like that's conducive to making me hungry.

Jill said...

I'm moving whoever has Jamoosh's name and giving it to you!

Meg said...

Your post title really sucked me in and I had to read the first paragraphs a few times to truly understand this whole anus thing. Got it now!
Good luck with the MRI results. I'll be thinking SUPER positive thoughts!!

Just Run With It said...

Ahhhahah those plates are fantastic. How lovely. Fingers crossed for positive MRI results!

Andrew Opala said...

Girl:

I'm shocked that the anus plate got more childish commentary than the bile-duct-plate! No mention of the duodenum plate?

Some girls are just so one sided!

Good luck on the MRI - I'm sure you gave it your all!

Shawn said...

Just started following.....and now am wondering why..hahahaha...I have never heard of an Anus plate? And probably never want to again...thanx for the chuckles

ThE MidLiFe CrUiSeR said...

Any chance you'll do a blog giveaway for the anus plate? If not, that's ok. I'll just ask Santa for it. Maybe he'll put it in my stocking instead of coal :) LOL!

Can't wait to read about your Bitchy Pills! Should be and informative read!

With your fun sense of humor, I'd love for you to stop by my blog sometime and become one of my blog buddies!

HappyTrails said...

Just imagine all the thoughts running through your head as you eat dinner from that plate. It would probably cure someone of licking their plate clean ;-) Really hoping you get good news on that MRI as we feel bad that you have had so much trouble getting back to your routine.

Adam said...

This is quickly becoming my most favorite post. Anus and sperm in the same one!? *PLEASE let me get you*

Quinton J said...

HELP! I'm on the website but I can't find the 'sterling silver sperm necklace'!!!!

Quinton J said...

Okay...Nevermind...I found it.

Julie said...

Hi Tara,
I am so unorganized this year as far as the holidays go! I still have so much to do but it is hard to get it all done with work and the other junk that life hands me:)

Let' start a sub 4 marathon club:) We can do it!!! The one thing that I am so afraid of is doing worse than my first one:) Oh my God, the pressure!!

E-mail me when you have a moment.

jkaiser4 at fairview.org

I want your address:)

Iron Mike said...

Wow, the worst part is that there is some type of market for that crap. 6 billion people on earth, guess there's plenty of room for oddballs.
I hope they see your blog post and see you a free set.

Anna said...

That is both wonderfully fascinating and highly disturbing at the same time.. LOL!

TX Runner Mom said...

Good luck with the MRI! Ummm, not sure wht to think about those pics.

Kelly Olexa said...

All of my life I've been hoping for a sperm necklace, and now- now you bring in the Anus Plate bonus! DANG!!!

Anne said...

Merry Christmas Tara!

Amanda - RunToTheFinish said...

Amanda@runninghood said...
