Are you familiar with The AntiCraft? According to their "antifesto" they "were deep in the clutches of a weeklong absinthe binge when the Divine Hand of Brilliance touched us in an inappropriate place. When this vision came, we knew we must create a haven for all the sinister crafters of the world." Their "Beltane 2009" issue was devoted entirely to merkins. If you're not sure what I'm talking about you can read their article, "WTF is a Merkin?" The photos of the projects are decidedly not safe for work though if you're interested I find the merkin made of fishing lures...er...interesting. The only one I can show you is this one, made of glow in the dark yarn.
Certainly if you came across this in the course of your day you'd find yourself saying, "What the hell is this?"
