Top 10 Funny, Strange and Unusual Fakes

This blog post all started when I brought a fake phone off E-Bay. It looked the same, the bow was indeed the same but of course, it was cheap because it was a cheap knock off. That day I learned the valuable lesson that when something is a lot cheaper than the real thing then it probably isn’t the real thing. So I thought I would help you try and avoid the same mistakes I did as I bring you…

  1. I like the donut seeds. Just add milk, I suppose. They would easy to mail. 🙂 Would any of those come up chocolate?

  2. I like that idea. So a glazed donut is raised eating sugar, and a chocolate cake donut grows up eating chocolate cake!

    I think I would like to be a donut.

  3. Reblogged this on Thoughts along the way and commented:
    I know it’s been a while…and there’s sooo much to say. So I really will try and update my blog soon. But in the meantime, I logged onto WP (to work on something-I-will-be-announcing-in-that-promised-soon-to-come-post), and saw this. And thought it was hilarious. Enjoy!

  4. Ha!! Hilarious! Over a year ago, my sister-in-law showed me a photo of a white van that said “free candy.” I wish I knew where she found that.

  5. Why does your logo sea horse look overweight?! I thought he would have been fit and health running around London servicing, maintaining all those professional swimming pools you look after!

  6. hahahaahhahahahahahahahaha, possibly the craziest, most insane post i have ever seen.My husband is a lil cuckoo (possibly the one who sold you the sea horse at the pub), I’m sure he’ll just eat this post up.

    Between the time travelling machine and the sea horse I’m not sure which one takes the trophy.

  7. I would like a seahorse too … perhaps just a little smaller and not from the bloke at the pub! You’ve outdone yourself, Russell! LOL’ing

  8. Whahahahaha! Well, then let’s start making money! LOL! Thanks for the lovely post Russell. Enjoyed it. 🙂 *hugs*

  9. That seems like the best answer yet! Taking away all the health parts explains why they really are bad for you. And how do you know when they are ripe enough to pick?!?

  10. I’ve been thinking about these donut seeds. Where do they come from? Then it occurred to me that donuts must be like apples. The seeds are in the middle part that you don’t eat. So donut holes are the seed-bearing reproductive part of the donut fruit. I’m not positive, but I think that implies the “donut hole” part is where all the nutritious enzymes and vitamins are hidden. Does anyone know?

  11. Whahahahahah! Now that was quite enjoyable Russell! I think I am going to take my friend’s Flemish Giants and start selling them off as Miniature Kangaroos. LOL!

  12. Obviously good science demands that you eat a number of them to test for ripeness and record your data on a chart. I am very curious how long they would take to sprout and ripen. Do you suppose you just grow them in the box? Are there different seeds for different flavors?

  13. The donut seeds sure made me laugh. Only you could find such crazy stuff to write about. Keep it up because you are very entertaining and always good for a smile.

  14. Donut seeds are REAL. Fruitloop donut seeds grow glazed donuts… I can also attest to the whole elevator time machine thing…

  15. Very kind words! If you are open to improvement and commit to it fully, you will better yourself and your world!

    Take care,

  16. I knew it was going to be good after seeing McDonalds….talk about funny. Loved all of these, than you for giving me a laugh to ward of this cold. Muchly appreciated. Mr 9 thought the Maccas was weird…. 🙂

  17. It would definitly be a donut tree. Donut holes would grow on vines. Freehugs, hmmmmm….lonely troll?

  18. I think there’s a good chance. I’m no expert, by any means, but I think that the concept works, and, by the sounds of it, you’ve got the technical skills to back it up. Well, I certainly wish you the best of luck with it all 🙂

  19. Really? Do you think I will be as big as that?!? Who knows, stranger things have happened. And no matter what happens I will always appreciate that you and a few others were here at the start of it all.

  20. Stuff that makes people laugh always works. I mean, just look at LOLcats or whatever that site is called. It’s huge! That’s where you’re heading…

  21. I love it! Great post and very funny. Thanks for sharing it and for visiting my site as well. Take care.


  22. Fantastic. I’m sharing on FB!

    The donut seeds would be a funny trick to pull on a child. My dad once made me believe that chocolate milk came from brown cows. Oh, how gullible we are as kids!
