Coffin couch (version 2.0)

a couch shaped like a coffinA while back I wrote about this brand of coffin couches. Well, believe it or not, someone else has come up with their own version. (Seen pictured above). Personally, I prefer the look of the more modern, leather coffin couch. On the other hand though, I do appreciate the way this one folds up into a coffee table. Aw hell, I'll just get one of each.

Frankenstein loves Burger King!

I've got to visit this Burger King! It's located in Niagra Falls, Ontario right next door to "The House of Frankenstein", a year-round haunted attraction. When the fast food franchise went up on the corner, the House of Frankenstein people constructed a giant Whopper-lovin' monster that appears to be busting though the store's roof.

Damn those Canadians and their genius combinations of things I love!
