Candybar carpet.

Do you want ants? 'Cause this is how you get ants.

Candybar carpet.

That "army carpet" looks like it's a real pleasure on the insoles. Ouch.

My dogs are eager to drag their rear ends across some of these. They're all about texture.

Some of those have great textures, at least from a distance.

For some reason, many of these make delightful anagrams:

Bottle Carpet? Battle Copter
Sponge Carpet? Conga Stepper
Cocktail Carpet? Cataleptic Rock
Thorn Carpet? Ratchet Porn
Spice Carpet? Pert Icecaps
Match Carpet? Tramp Cachet
Lead Carpet? Redact Plea
Pin Carpet? Inept Crap

These are really cool. But some of the close-ups start to rile up my trypophobia. {shudder}

Vladimir Karpets? No? They certainly can't claim to make all kinds, then.

trypophobia

Oh god bless you, I've been trying to describe that concept to people without being able to remember the damn word and NO ONE BELIEVES ME.

Fear of thanksgiving?

You could send them to this MeFi post {DOUBLE SHUDDER}.

Oh right, that thing. DNW.

Yeah, that's how I found out about it! My girlfriend recently showed me a picture of something (inside of a pomegranate maybe?) and I mentioned that, hey, did you know there's people shit-scared of stuff like this and could not for the life of me find that post and now I can finally win that conversation.

Could "fear of manipulated facial images where eyes are replaced by extra mouths or mouths are replaced by extra eyes" also fall under that category?

Things I have learned about myself today: I evaluate carpets by how they'd feel under my bare feet.

That cocktail carpet is like the cute poisonous caterpillar of death, in carpet form.

Oh, man. Probably.

Hi everyone, I am sorry for several reasons to have derailed this conversation about THESE REALLY COOL CARPETS WE SHOULD TALK ABOUT IN FAVOR OF TALKING ABOUT OTHER THINGS!

YES GOOD anyway noodle carpet, cooked or uncooked? I think cooked would be absolutely delightful for a few hours at least.

sexy firefighter carpet! sexy police officer carpet! come on down!

My soles say that the pasta carpet should definitely be cooked. But are we cooking the pasta carpet and then setting it up, or setting up the carpet and then somehow cooking it in place?
posted by dinty_moore at 9:36 AM on December 5, 2012


The more I think about the logistics of cooking it in place, the more I think it would have to be assembled post-cooking.
posted by elizardbits at 9:41 AM on December 5, 2012


You call that 'carpet'? This is carpet.
posted by Goofyy at 9:43 AM on December 5, 2012


We could just steam the pasta, maybe?

(I'm super busy at work today, in case you couldn't tell).

I was all over this until I realized there were so many hexagons all clustered up together. Jesus, people. HEXAGONS ARE SCARY. Why does no one understand that? Except, apparently, all MeFites.

I'd like a Creamed Corn or Mac & Cheese carpet. If neither of those are available I will settle for a carpet carpet, obviously made of carpet swatches.

These remind me a lot of those sand mandalas that some buddhist monks make. All that careful placement for such a transitory thing.

My parents had one of those when I was growing up; I loved it and its geometric forms and color made it fit in well with 60's decor. Apparently people are still making them.

Would the mefi carpet be made of beans or snowflakes? DISCUSS.

These are almost all very nice, and almost none of them are carpets.

I am so very disappointed the paperclip carpet stair runner is not all joined together. Boo!
posted by BlueHorse at 5:26 PM on December 5, 2012


Doesn't deliver what it says on the box.

I was actually looking to maybe buy a carpet for someone who is tough to buy a holiday gift for. Thanks a lot.
