An-thro-po-morph-itis. It's Itchy.


Example A:  Super adorable conjoined wild truffle boars.
I like to collect stuff, and lucky for me, so does my best friend, Kim.  One of my favorite things to find are Japanese anthropomorphic tchotchkes.  Usually, I do a pretty good job on my own, but when I start slacking, Kim swoops in with assistance.  For example, she found these adorable conjoined pigs for me at a local consignment shop.

Example B:  Congregation of Anthro Apples.
Anthropomorphic pigs are very awesome, but what gets me really itchy on adrenaline are anthropomorphic fruits and vegetables.  Since I've been collecting these for awhile now, sometimes other friends will also swoop in to help boost my collection.

Example C:  Pissed off banana.
This banana was sent to me by Katie from Don't Eat Off the Sidewalk.  He's pretty great to have around, even though he's always so pissed off.  It probably has something to do with so many happy apples hanging around 24-7.

Example D:  New kid.
I haven't added any new apples to my collection in a long time, so when Kim found this one today, she snapped it up.  This new addition is the largest in my collection, and it was only $3!  Kim's pretty much the best at estate sale scoring.  Good thing she's on team Kittee-Bee, or I'd be in deep doo-doo.

Example E:  Uh oh, picture time!  (Did you notice this is as big as my head?  Score!)
The DSM-4 clearly states that one of the classic manifestations of anthropomorphitis is the strong, burning desire to pose with newly acquired anthro objects at any cost.  Even if it means using the self-timer on a cheap point 'n' shoot camera.

The more you know.

  2. Of course the banana is pissed off — it's all the ethylene gas apples produce that's causing him to ripen against his will. My favorite is the apple teapot.

  3. The Japanese have anthropomorphic adorables down to a science. Seriously, it's those designs that make me wish that fruits and vegetables really did have cheerful smiling faces... Although it would be much harder to enjoy eating them then.

    1. Yea, if fruits and veggies really looked like this, I'd probably just eat dirt. Then the Japanese would come along and make cute anthro dirt--although they probs already do...

  5. I love that pissed off banana. Nothing like having a little balance in your life... And, so cool that you have a partner in crime (aka madness) re: finding all of those amazing tchotchkes.

    Thanks for giving me my very first VeganMoFo comment - if I had a kissing lemon & lime salt & pepper shaker set to send you, I'd to it in a heartbeat!

  6. Is it weird that I think the banana is a pickle?

    Kim really is the best estate sale-r ever. It makes me want to do it more often even though I find shit when I go...
