In these tough economic times, people can't always afford the A-list, big-ticket items. Instead of Cliff Lee and the Xbox Kinect, thrifty sorts will have to settle for signing Jeff Francoeur and waggling their limbs ineffectually like idiots. Or will they? What if you could pick up a counterfeit product at a fraction of the cost, without anyone being able to tell the difference, assuming that you only let people observe you and your gift from at least 30 feet away? The SA Forum Goons tracked down these alternate-universe hot sellers; all you'll have to do is Google, find and save! Given that Photoshops often appear in this space, it's worth emphasizing that these are actual things that exist. Also, it's worth sharing the theme song from the Van Damme/Rob Schneider buddy movie Knock Off, because, dammit, I'll never get tired of posting that link with every Front-Page Article that's even vaguely related.



Sample song: Black Sabbath's "Granite Man"!


StealthStealth: "The hand in front is COMING OUT OF ANOTHER FUCKING ARM."

    Meditations from a Movable Weiner

    Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.

  • Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver Dog Reviews: The Barquis de Sade & Cleaver

    Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
