Just like these, but pried off and with some chunks of tooth on them.Refurbished BRACES – prêt-à-porter!
Got crooked teeth? The Internet Discount Barn has recently come into a dazzling selection of stylish, chromed, ready-to-wear braces! All shapes and sizes to solve all types of dental woes! Internet Discount Barn is the world’s leading salvager of school bus accidents! Some braces are slightly bent, but can be hammered to fit your mouth or your child’s! Some are still glued to fragments of tooth, which can easily be dissolved in Coca-Cola, or so legend would have it. Why pay thousands to orthodontists when these lightly used braces can be yours for the rock-bottom price of $6 per bracket?
Fables Fables Fables!
Need gentle moral guidance? Internet Discount Barn stocks the highest-quality b-list fables, rejected from the manuscripts of some of history’s top fabulists! Meaningful but unpalatable or unpublishable not-quite-classics from Aesop, Phaedrus, Uncle Remus, and other apocryphal figures! When you order from Internet Discount Barn, you’ll receive a twine-bound parcel of more than a hundred pages of loose-leaf fables. Below are some examples of the great fables you can enjoy with your family:The Fox and the Slug
The Octopus’s Scam
The Lady and the Jew
The Moose and the Opium
The Murder of Brer Rabbit
Many fables were rejected with easily discernable reason, such as possibly accidental advocacy of eugenics, drug use, anti-Semitism, and teenage promiscuity. Use them as cautionary tales, or even as filler for Neo-Nazi pamphlets! The Internet Discount Barn wants nothing to do with your politics, but would die for your right to express your views! Only $8!
Hubcaps!Irregular dogs at breakneck prices!Sick of Walking? Sled Dogs Too Expensive? IRREGULAR HUSKIES!
Don’t ask how we got them, don’t ask why we need to SELL FAST! Five assorted hubcaps for five dollars. It’s a steal! Don’t read too much into the fact that we put “steal” in italics!
You won’t win the Iditarod with this team of irregular huskies, but you might just get from point A to point B! A dozen pure-bred Siberian sled dogs with irregularities ranging from violent temperaments to extra legs to hoofed feet! One can control fire! We don’t lie, these dogs are the bottom of the barrel. No shelter in the world will take these dogs! Make a coat with their skins, grind them up for meat, or elicit pity with their tragic deformities! Some of them make great companions; others will try to bite your neck out. Exercise caution around these and all other irregular animals. Fifty bucks for all of them!
We have hundreds of crates of habbages, farm-fresh and ready to be sold! Probably mislabeled boxes of cabbages, but possibly something entirely unknown to us! Internet Discount Barn has never heard of habbages, and is frankly unwilling to open the crates due to pungent odors and superstitions caused by unnatural events surrounding the boxes of habbages. We’re scared stiff! Get these out of here! $3 a box, who knows what you’ll get!
Science Teachers REJOICE: CHILD SKELETON DEEDS!!!
Poor families from around the world have sold us the deeds to their children’s skeletons at rock-bottom prices, and we pass the savings on to YOU! Upon the death of the child, the skeleton is yours! Many of the third-world countries involved have ASTRONOMICAL infant mortality rates—these skeletons could be yours tomorrow! Unscrupulous buyers can easily arrange “early extractions”! We’re not squeamish about doing morally indefensible things for super-savings! Act now before landmines render these skeletons incomplete! $30 per deed, 25% off when you buy a dozen!
It's "TIME" to get rid of these CLOCKS!Baffling Metric Clocks!
We don’t know who made these clocks, or why! They go in ten hour cycles, each hour consisting of ten minutes! No correspondence to the unimpeachable reality of the sun’s movements. We don’t know what to do with these things, but maybe you do! If you order now, we’ll include defunct tickets to appear in the live studio audience of NBC’s long-since-cancelled “The Single Guy,” starring Jonathan Silverman! These tickets are guaranteed to appreciate in value if extraordinary circumstances cause them to! We hate these clocks, because we feel like their manufacturers know something we don’t! Get them off our hands! $60 each.
Hateful Little Man
Small, hateful creature, proportioned like a man but a mere three inches tall. We found him in a box of bananas. Naked and surly. Yells withering abuse in a tiny voice, like a kitten. His existence may or may not be an affront to God. We wanted to squeeze his little bones out for all the sour, hurtful things he said, but the stock manager said that killing him would only make him stronger (?). Take your chances on killing him, keep him around as a novelty, or get into arguments with him. Requires no food, water, or sleep. One of a kind, we hope! $6,000, including bell jar.
Obscene Materials in BULK! Would make J.G. Ballard faint!
Crates of publications, videos, artworks, statuettes, and other sundry products deemed obscene by the United States government and turned away from our ports. The Internet Discount Barn snagged them and secreted them into the country in the dead of night! Some of these obscene materials are relatively mild, and we disagree philosophically with the government’s contention that they should be suppressed. Others are indescribably lurid, disgusting, and perverse. In each grab-bag of obscene materials, we will include at least three “tame” items, which are no more obscene than America’s most disgusting hardcore pornography, and at least three shocking, disgusting, or perverse items. Many of these disgusting works involve filmed depictions of actual human death and mutilation, while others are simply profoundly and unforgettably disquieting for unmentionable reasons. Is your curiosity piqued? $200 per box.

Girlie Fiasco – Not for children! Unlicensed cartridges mean no limits on content! Classy ADULT party game in which you guide a highly stylized cartoon phallus through a maze of temptations! The New York Times called it “a testament to the enduring power of art to rouse the human spirit.” Sizzling!
Husqvarna Chainsaw Hootenanny – A promotional cartridge briefly given away with Husqvarna chainsaws in 1993. Content so disturbing that we almost put these in with the boxes of obscene material! A real hoot, if you like chainsaws and child nudity.
Calvin peeing on the Manx flag.Mysterious Bootleg “Peeing Calvin” Window Stickers!
These mischievous little marvels are bound to make Bill Watterson turn over in his grave (he’s dead, right?) Limitless styles and varieties. Calvin peeing on everything from Hobbes to the NASA logo to the United States Constitution. Some of these are downright stupefying: Calvin peeing on a smaller Calvin who is in turn peeing on an even smaller Calvin; Calvin peeing on a four-dimensional "hypercube"; Calvin peeing on a stylized racist “pickaninny” Negro child. We didn’t make these, we don’t know what they mean, and they’re definitely illegal. $2 a dozen, we pick!

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.
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.
Ignore the hype. Find out how these games will likely go right or wrong.
The Something Awful front page news tackles anything both off and on the Internet. Mostly "on" though, as we're all incredible nerds.
