Some People are Easy to Shop For

Many thanks to alert reader canadianstudies for pointing out this little beauty, which sold at auction for over $14,000:

That's right, it's a vampire hunting kit, circa 1800.

And we all know who'd have a total hard-on for it, right?


Somehow I don't see it under his Christmas tree this year.

I was thinking that, too. And "mercurichrome" keeps coming to mind. Here, let me stake you and then disinfect it.

Salt is a neat idea. I'll bet it would last, too.

There's a round black thing that I keep looking at wondering what it is.

I keep thinking "shoe polish." and then, "no."

I wonder if the garlic is fake. 200-year-old garlic would be all collapsed in on itself (If my garlic from this summer is anything to go by) and I'd be surprised if the auction house put fresh garlic inside an antique.

Weird.

I'm amazed to see something like that really exists!!

Yeah, me too! And for some reason the idea that it does really exist totally kickstarts the creativity.
