Something's got to keep all those unruly Beanie Babies in line. HP Lovecraft's got nothing on the attack of the Plush Cthulhu.

Hahahahahahaha. I've never had an interest in H.P. Lovecraft. But that is one of the funniest sites I've ever seen. Thank you for spreading the joy.e

Thank you! Stuck in "will he ever phone me" hell and this is just what I needed (um, is that worrying?) Makes my soft toy recreation of the cover of a certain Pogues album pale into insignificance. My 1st post too!

I'm sure no-one cares but I almost made Cthulhu my username. Don't really know why I didn't. Oh yeah, Lovecraft is the only readable and enjoyable horror/weird/macabre writer. In my opinion of course. But he induces fear without ever showing you the monster.

Why did the spell check recomend overate instead of Lovecraft?

I don't know why but this line really cracked me up:

"Wow," said Baby Boy Fluffy Bunny.

"Wow indeed," said Professor Blue Smush DinoBaby.

What no Flash (kidding), this is one of the better sites of this genre. For a similar site see This one.

This, to me, is even better.

Cute, but, nothing beats a hit of Monkey in the morning! his (her?) new "sorbet in a sack" recipe rocks. and his "where's monkey" page and "poetry stop" shows just how people can get caught up in his (her) world. Monkey is always adding something new and there is always something to discover that I over looked the first or second time through. (the alt tags have a life of their own and there are hidden links.)

Don't forget the "Summer fun Cthulhu Plush"

My mind is now happy mush. The monkey site is so cool - I'm never going to get any work done now. Thanks for cheering up a miserable day :)

Some of my best RPG times have been playing Call of Cthulhu. I read a lot of dear old H.P. around that time -- my favorite game was at a convention, run by Greg Stafford (founder of Chaosium, publisher of Call of Cthulhu).

He made us all join the Church of Elvis, do a little (celebratory and worshipful) dance, and we all got a certificate, signed by him, redeemable for 20 sanity points.

My ex-wife stole mine. This explains more than I'm willing to talk about here.

It's not a Cthulu thread without a shaggoth...

Oh, and SadieBear, do you have a link to the Pogues cover recreation?

Meme mixture at it's finest (or worst).

Would it be wrong to place my child in a crib with plush Nyarlathoteps and Cthulhi?

I was just wondering the same thing. :)

shagoth - alas, the soft toy Pogues thing went unrecorded - Shane MacGowan Bear became uncontrollable and had to be removed

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! I HAVE ONE AND YOU DON'T!

I HAVE IT! I HAVE THE POWER!

(Actually, I do have one propped on the right top of my monitor, next to my Eclipse lamp...)
