Get Guts Cheap

March 12, 2009

plush-lung-72dpiWhen the going gets guts, the guts go shopping. We got a bunch of samples back from the toy testing process that are totally fine — except they are missing their hangtags and labels. We figured we should celebrate their returning somewhat unscathed by offering them up at a discount to you, so we stuck some cheap-o lungs, liver, brains, kidneys and gallbladders in the Steals + Deals section of our website. So if you were planning on ripping the tags off anyway for better gutsy cuddling or you wanted to give a liver to your dog or whatever, now’s your chance to get them on the cheap. Stock is very limited, so go get ’em if you want ’em.

More From Unique L.A.

dscn97981Things were so fun around the show, I forgot to tell you about the fun we had in our booth! One woman, an M.D., was checking out the glands and remarked of the testicle, “He looks like he has kind of an epidydimis combover.” Hilarious. A midwife-in-training popped by our booth to get some Womb Service tees, and her friend said, all of a sudden, “I have two uteruses. And two cervixes!” So we spent the next five minutes wondering if she could have two pregnancies and two different times, what about two periods? Fascinating. Can you imagine? It turns out that , yes you can have two separate pregnancies in two uteruses. I also got a chance to meet Katrina, who blogs about tees on T-shirts Around the Internet, she was super nice, and it was great to meet her in person!

Hooray for UCSF!

Believe it or not, the guts have a tough time getting into hospital gift shops. Maybe 90% of the time we approach a store and show ’em the guts, the buyer offers us little more than an expression of total disgust and annoyance. One buyer at the Cedars Sinai hospital gift shop in Los Angeles asked me, “Why would someone who had a kidney transplant wanna wear a kidney?” I replied, “Um, uh, er…Because they have a weird sense of humor?” So we are especially grateful to UCSF hospital gift shop for going out on a limb and taking I Heart Guts into their store. Thanks, guys, for not being afraid of being freaky! Hopefully the gutsy goods will go home into the hands of some wonderful San Franciscans — and perhaps a nurse or doctor or two — after all, 75% of hospital gift shop sales are to people who work in the hospital (okay, okay, maybe they’re just grabbing a candy bar, but it’s true).
