Can't Tell a Water by Lookin' at the Bottle

The other day, while waiting in line for my morning coffee, I casually noticed a row of shampoos on top of the pastry counter, and then did a double take: Shampoo? In a coffee shop? I looked again, and discovered that it was not shampoo at all, but a new, flavored water called Icio. Icio is the brainchild of a man named Alex Van Lang, and it comes in four flavors: peppermint, cucumber-lemon grass, lemon-basil, and apple-pear. One of these days, I am going to try this stuff, but, I'll have to get past the fact that my brain is telling me that it will taste like shampoo. I wonder if this represents a new shift in package design? Will we be seeing cereals packaged to look like kitty litter? Or sodas made to resemble Lysol?

The Luckiest Baby in the World!

Weirdo fan, and oddball artist, Elmer Presslee created this stroller for his kid, and put pictures of it up on Flickr. What a lucky toddler. Check out the gray matter seating arrangement. I can just imagine the horrified gasps from other parents as the kid goes tooling down the street in this contraption. After admiring the stroller pictures, go to Presslee's web site for dementia. (Thanks JB!)
