Today in Disembodied Things

[Part Twelve in an ongoing series. Parts One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six, Seven, Eight, Nine, Ten, Eleven.]

This lovely item was just sent to me by Shaker W, who found it at Tokyo Mango: "Wow. This bare-breasted, mouth-wide-open, ceramic woman is actually a compact cigarette extinguisher. Awesome, right? Just stick the butt in her mouth when you're done smoking."


What I find particularly cute about this adorably kitschy item is how it reminds me of the Brazilian girl, about whom I wrote on Monday, who was reportedly "tortured with lit cigarettes on her fingers and bare feet" to get her to submit to being gang-raped.

Delightful!

But of course those two things have nothing in common.
