Waterfront Property! Cheap! Snorkels Included!

Ian left his still-unpacked suitcase open this morning, and I was curling up for a nap inside it when I discovered a dog-eared copy of SkyMall. Man, delusions are expensive. If you don't believe me, just check out the $129 plastic "hidden litter box" with "Tuscany handfinish" (pictured). It doubles as an artificial plant holder, and was apparently lovingly crafted by Italian plastisans.

Exclaims the ad:
"Finally, a decorative litter box you don't have to hide! Simply turn the entrance to the wall and no one will know!"
They may feign ignorance, but I think visitors will be thinking—at best—that your plant has a ginormous case of root rot. At worst, they'll whisper: "Man, I think their cat took a #&!% in the peace lily."

I am contacting SkyMall to see if they have any interest in marketing my latest invention. It's a combination litter box/lazy Susan. Perfect for parties. You cat goes in the compartment underneath. When he exits, the motion sets the top a-twirl, keeping the cocktail olives and pearl onions within reach of all your guests.
