Urban Outfitters, Not Just For Outfitting

Hubby and I went to the Mall of America for dinner Friday night (yes, people, our Friday night fun was at the mall--it's the dead of winter and it's the Midwest, what can I say, we make the most of our options), and we had about half an hour to kill while we waited for a table. The little remote control "Your table is ready" alerting device had a whopping radius of two whole stores on either side of the restaurant, and seeing as how we didn't want to spend half an hour at the "Crepe Stand," we headed on over to Urban Outfitters to eat up some time.

Man, I have not been to Urban Outfitters in a long time. I did not remember them having such a wide variety of items other than clothing. They had books, apartment furnishings, and some items that, well, I'm just not sure what purpose they served. Here are some of my favorites:

A portable desktop Ping Pong set. Because you never know when you might get the urge.

A Finger Drum Set. For when the battery in your IPod dies at the office.

A toilet brush designed after everyone's favorite wooden boy, Pinnochio! No bathroom is complete without one!

This one is a little hard to see, but that's okay, I'll tell you what it is: a thumb wrestling ring! Tired of wrestlers who use their whole wrist/arm to win thumb wars? Put 'em in the ring and see how they do!

And finally, my favorite:

A Gummy Tapeworm! Who needs dessert at Tucci Benucch when you can have a sugary replica of a parasite?

At first I was all like HA! that's funny; but then, I remembered I hadn't gotten my husband anything for Valentine's day.... So dude! Thanks! And thanks for coming by and blog-rolling me! (I look a little lonely over there, though... Come by any time for some suggestions - I have some good ones!)

I thought they only had clothes there! But then, I've only been to like one of their stores and it was a few years ago.
