…The Muppets are terrible drivers?

Muppet Speed Camera

In Germany, speed cameras are set up to capture both the license plate of the car in question as well as the drivers face, while blurring the identity of the passengers for privacy purposes, because “The number plate is not enough. We need clear evidence of who is driving the vehicle too.”

Apparently one British driver (whose driver’s seat is conveniently on the opposite side of his German counterparts) has discovered this system, and is taking full advantage of it by placing a stuffed Muppet in the driver’s/passenger’s seat as he flies by the cameras.

So far he’s got the authorities fooled, but as soon as they can figure out which Muppet is going along for the ride, they intend to fully interrogate him until he reveals the identity of the clever co-driver.

Tattoo PigIf you thought the tattooed couch was bad, just wait until you see Wim Delvoye’s tattooed pig. (Stuffed, of course.)

I guess fashion forward follows you to the grave as well.

…It’s Things Thursday: Shawnimals?


Shawnimals are the plush creations of Shawn and Jen, the artists behind the Wee Ninja. They’re also “an enigma comprised of felt, stuffing and unabated creative synergy”. Each handmade Shawnimal comes with its own original story, and stickers and buttons if they’re available.

So far, nearly 400 unique Shawnimals have been made, including limited editions and special occasions, which gives them Beanie Baby –esque collectability without the potential market crash. If “strange yet cute artist-made stuffed creatures” sound like your cup of tea, then check out Shawnimals, and see if you can find a new stuffed friend.
