With the tagline Kil HungryThirsty Dead, a carnival worker rambles on semi-logically about hunger, thirst, his broither and his son."

Columbia "Great Moments in Trying Stuff"

Thanks for the tip AdsoftheWorld...

"What does a hot dog bun that's been marinating in a mountain biker's jacket taste like?
Depends on the jacket."

""Our fully-drainable shoe works basically like a colander, so surely it can make a decent salad."

Angry Cat
"It's not just a cat in a tiny cat jacket. It's a cat in our most air-permeable tiny cat jacket."

Mesh Tank Top
"We settle the age-old debate: what's cooler—a black mesh tank top, or our most advanced cooling
shirt ever?"
