So in case someone actually wants to buy my new product, I'm thinking of something like this, as opposed to a more kitchen-y looking spatula:

http://www.plasticservers.com/plasti...-spatulas.html

Thoughts on color? Looks like a pretty good deal for one-color printed logo, and available in nice small runs...

Edit: crap... they only ship in the USA. The search goes on.

Oh, but think of the headlines if a Mecha member got busted smuggling Scatulas across the border. Think of the site traffic.

It looks like there are other sites that sell those same items, and I just heard from one that they do ship here!

I think the power of the internet could sell a lot of these. Besides boobs and cats the general population of the internet loves a poop joke. Double the love for a play on words, so I think you have a winner.

May the power of the poo bring you a shitload of money.

If this shows up in use in Aarkie's BD that's not going to be a good thing.

Man, I'm really getting hung up on what this product actually will be! Having trouble finding source for appropriate spatula with printed logo... lots of suppliers, but I don't want to start with 10,000 units! I was thinking last night about maybe using a long-handled shoe horn...

That would be the Kelly Clarkson model.

"If Kelly Clarkson plops her fat ass down on your toilet, you better get the plunger ready.
She BEEFS.

She’ll drop 5 or 6 forearm-sized logs in there with no flushes in between. Rumor has it that on the set of “From Justin to Kelly” she used to shit in the shower and heel it down the drain."

Well done. I think a "But wait...there's more!!" moment for ordering would really put it over the top.

I also think the Mayans are silently watching.
