My back itches

Mone said...

oh, its for scratching?
because there appeare to be three holes in the white part I thougth it would be some kind of electrical outlet or something... (*singing* yeah I'm a woman...)

Dean said...

I was kind of thinking the same thing, Mone. I wondered if it vibrated, and whether the spring thing to the left was part of it.

Vibrating testicle-cupper?
Semi-automatic melon-baller?

I find both of these way more cooler than 'backscratcher'.

Strow said...

Stupid???? i think not!!! This is a brilliant invention.

Do you put batterires in it and does it vibrate???

Whats a back scratcher???

Mone said...

In relation that soup can looks big! Or is it a blow up soup can?
hahaha

Mone said...

strow - says the name already... if your back is itching you take that thing and scratch you back with it =)
No need to use a long soup spoon or a ruler anymore!
PS: I dont have a back scratcher.

Vince said...

Cool wall. I used to have one of those wood panal things.

Bill Fitzgerald said...

PEZ dispenser for use when attending the opera.

Jozee said...

I like it no matter what it is. It's so retro.

PDD said...

The best thing you own thus far.

Blonde Vigilante said...

Excuse me, but your back stratcher is wearing a suit.

Lipp said...

The plastic coil is a Slinky™.
I think the hand-deal might be a lighter, the long kind for the fireplace, grill, etc.
The thing behind the hand is some kind of tool/instrument/lid, probably copper, maybe brass? Nautical perhaps?

Zen Wizard said...

I was gonna say back scratcher, also.

mushroom said...

Can i get a hand with this large can of soup?

Eve said...

OMG. I have a LOVE affair with my back scratcher. THought I was the only married person below 70 that actually owns one.

Your's is cuter though, Erin. It's like a BIG lebian encounter everytime you need to scratch! ;)

eyeball says, "I had that same back scrather years ago--used it to scratch my balls once--Hey, I was a kid."

Brookelina said...

That mushroom took my line.

Hi Bloggers.

I am chasing a deadline with a hairy assignment and am a bit pressed for time.

I love all of your comments, without you guys this blog would be nothing.

Thanks.

I have a backscratcher by my bed , it makes a great little imaginary friend when I cant sleep I grab the handle and put on an improv puppet/backscratcher show, it makes me smile and then I go back to sleep.

I can BE a good back-scratcher...

nicole said...

Erin, I must know where you FIND such awesome stuff!

Toby said...

My back gets itchy when I see this pic. The power of suggestion is powerful.

jamwall said...

Hope Dangling said...

I thought it was a PEZ dispenser. Infact...in my world...I think I will just continue to think that. Thanks Erin!!

Hope Dangling said...

And is that an antique slinky behing the pez dispenser??

Denny Shane said...

I hate to bring this up AGAIN!!! but why, WHY does that stupid can of tomato soup keep getting in the picture? Even a can of Chicken Soup would be a nice change!

Mone said...
