i came across this hilarious ira glass pillow by big stone head (sold at little otsu) on the blog mixed plate (thanks liana!). not only is the pillow pretty funny, but inside each pillow is a different fact about npr’s this american life host. wouldn’t that drive you nuts? i know i’d be chomping at the bit to get inside – it’s like getting a decoder ring from the bottom of a cracker jack box – i wouldn’t be able to wait!
even funnier, every year on april fool’s day, npr inserts a false story into their programming. if you’re not paying attention to the day, you could be taken in…like my hubby was when they announced they were converting all of america’s music to one, indestructible format – the 78 rpm record. this way, in case of any apocolyptic event, we’d still have access to listen to all of our music…even if we have to play it with a safety pin. cool, huh??!
yeah, so not true. but my hubby, who’s huge into music, fell for it and proceeded to tell everyone about it. poor thing. click here for the story they broadcast!
