Best Link Ever! Regretsy Punks Etsy

POST BY KAREN ARCHEY

Etsy had it coming. The online arts and crafts-based marketplace features saccharine, handmade creations from the hipster-meets-Martha Stewart demographic – a target for ripe for picking by the blogging community.  And so enters Regretsy, a blog pairing the craft site’s most regrettable listings with a bit of vitriolic commentary. The recipient of this week’s Best Link Ever, Regretsy lists items ranging from supposedly-utilitarian items like tampon cozies (to help keep them warm?), to visual art like Jacks On Pollack–a painting ejaculated upon, its pattern mimicking Jackson Pollock’s Ab-Ex drips.  Jacks On Pollack is available for the low price of $40.00 USD.

Best Link Ever is a weekly column posted on Fridays culling the best gems of the Internet, maintained by AFC Associate Editor Karen Archey.

Hilarious parody. Although I gotta tell you, at something like 3 million viewers monthly, for any artist Etsy is nothing to sneeze at.
