Lobster Claw

I've always been a fan of the claw game and I've always been a fan of lobsters so I was particularly happy to see this:

 The Lobster Zone is a game that let's you try to win your own lobster for $2.00 per try.  Here's a news story about it:

Medical Marijuana Vending Machine

In California, if you have a prescription, you can buy weed from a vending machine

Hopefully this is right next to a snack vending machine for extra convenience.  We're now counting down to the first news story of the entire machine being stolen.

Take the Bull by...Well, You Know...

Check out the Rodeo Bull Strength Challenge, which I assume measures your strength against the strength of a rodeo bull:

Even though they used to be everywhere, you don't see a lot of cigarette vending machines these days. And when you do, it turns out they are selling art:

Yes, that's right, this is an old-timey cigarette machine that has been repurposed to sell cigarette pack shaped art! You can have your own work of art for just $5.00!

This was found at a Whole Foods in Dallas and is the work of these guys.

Barrel of Fun

You've probably sen those massaging chairs at the airport. They seem great but could they be more fun? The Dallas Zoo seems to think so. We saw this one during our recent trip there.

25 cents for a foot massage? Sounds good to me!

Dr. Feelgood

Say hello to Dr. Feelgood!

He awaits you at the Wall Drug Store in Wall, SD and for about a dollar in change (if I recall correctly) he will sell you all the snake oil you can carry. Here's some crappy video I shot on a crappy camera of the good doctor in action:

To Scale or Not to Scale

I typically question the "fun" factor of weighing yourself. At any rate, this beauty was found at Texas Best Smokehouse in Italy, TX (right next to the giant Starship Pegasus).

At the very least, it's fun to look at. Be sure and try the BBQ while you're there.
