This is Limnis, the Venusian Ufek. I'm not entirely sure whether he's a plushie or a sofa. I do know, though, that he cost so much to stuff I didn't buy groceries that week.
Strange, he doesn't look like he's missed many meals.

Beat me to it, C17. A glint of insanity amidst a whirling sea of unnerving misplaced sexual energy.

There's definitely some hot plushie luvvin' going on in Otter's Plushie Forest.

Huh. As creepy as this obsession is, the, er, plushies themselves are actually really well done. You'd think he could make a decent living if he sold a few.

Granted, he'd probably have to clean the white crust off first....

I've had a few people ask me where I keep all of these plushies. Well, here's a partial answer. This is my "den", where half the plushies stay. It's a very nice place, complete with live plants, glow-in-the-dark stars on the cieling [sic], and a big brown blanket that can be pulled down to create that "burrow" effect.
And if the "burrow" is rocking -- uh, uh, I'm just stuffing my plushies. Ah, squeezing some more stuffing into my plushies, that is.

One of the greatest things about the internet is that I get to see sites (and sights) like this, and laugh about them. There is no limit to how freakin' weird human beings can get.

One of the worst things about the internet is that kids get to see sites and sights like this, and might somehow thing that this is within the realm of "normal." There is no limit to how freakin' weird this next generation is gonna get.

I sometimes wonder if ignorance isn't bliss.

he should sell them--he's good.

Very organic looking toys. I don't think I would leave kids alone with this guy for too long; but for stuffed animals to appear so animated is a fantastic gift expressed.
posted by buzzman at 11:00 AM on May 11, 2005

I think that if any "normal" child sees bumps into that website, they'd know, or hopefully know, that something isn't right with the picture.

Hey, eureka, instead of teaching children the evils about same sex marriages, we should indoctrinate them to recognize the evils and perils of plushy madness.

I personally would like to own an amberglow plushie. !Woot!

Holy crap. The plushies are great enough, but check out his (many) stories, too. I guess this would be "plushie sci-fi" or something. A couple of lines:
"The truth is, most people still thought of plushies as toys. They simply weren't ready to accept the notion of plushies as people." Uh, well....

M'ro, the earthworm/squirrel. He's got little feelers on his tummy, just like a real worm, made out of fishing line.

Right. Because realism is so important for a stuffed earthworm/squirrel.

Actually, I also think he should sell them. They're actually pretty cute.

This is awesome. I just hate that whenever I see something cute and innocent like a man's hobby making homemade stuffed animals, all I can think of is the latent sexual deviance. Curse you, furries.

When I happened upon this thread, I was watching a PBS documentary about cows (it was either this or soap operas). Millions of Hindu people in this world, from wherever you are to India, worship cows. I'd read about this before, but I always thought it was metaphorical, that they respect the cow because its their food and milk and clothing and whatever, but they literally worship them! They get down on their hands and knees and literally prostrate themselves before a mooing cow! I was creeped out at first, but then I saw this thread. I gotta admit, it puts the honorable Hindu people in perspective, when you see one creepy non Hindu weirdo dude worshipping plush toys.

Brings to mind: "Pleasures of the Fur" [Vanity Fair, March 2001] and "Plushies and Furries" [MTV Sex2K | January 3, 2002].

Did no-one else get the wiggins when the one of the bottom photos shows him getting his furry on so he can 'hand out lollipops to kids'?

And on a tangentially related note - are people who wear chip'n'dale costumes at Disneyland considered furries?
posted by Sparx at 1:30 PM on May 11, 2005

Heck I think the girl who wears the Daffy Duck outfit at Six Flags is a furry. Nice legs, though.

This is the scariest thing I've ever seen (from the MTV link).

Oh, come on.

It isn't that strange. He likes to make pretend stuffed animals. So did Jim Henson.

YOU probably play dungeons and dragons.

ericb, I've been trying to get that MTV furry show Tivo'ed for ages! (None of my friends believe me when I tell them about it. Like I could make that shit up.) I thought it was True Life episode, though. Thanks for putting me back on the track!

Sparx, that was my first thought—well, almost my first thought—too: Someone encouraged him to give candy to little kids??

"There is no limit to how freakin' weird this next generation is gonna get."

The next generation? I knew someone that had a thing for fire hydrants. He desperately wanted to take one home, but knew very well that he shouldn't.

Weird is good, and when the going gets weird the weird turn pro. Things aren't even weird enough yet.

Even though furries and plushies personally freak me out, it'd be so much more amusing to see two (or more!) folks in fursuits simulating totally improbable sexual acts on a street corner then yet another fuckin' Starbucks, Blockbuster, whatever. Seriously. I'd much rather see somone getting all humpy with a stuffed earthworm-squirrel than YAFSB. And I like coffee. A lot. (No, I don't want to move to NYC.)

So where's the forest? No plushie trees?
posted by sellout at 5:45 PM on May 11, 2005

Well, k, you gotta point there, loq. Furries burning down *bucks would be a good start.

I just hope exposure doesn't normalize this sort of thing. Pushing the boundaries of weirdness is just fine when it's furriness. If furry is normal... what then?
posted by five fresh fish at 5:50 PM on May 11, 2005

but furries and plushies are like the sweetest, most innocuous kink around--it's adorable, actually.

Good old-fashioned nightmare fuel.
posted by Faint of Butt at 8:02 PM on May 11, 2005

But it has such a high "creepiness" quotient to it, amberglow. It's kind of infantile, never growing out of your childhood teddybear... and then stoking the stuffing outta it. And there's the furrotica, where almost every animal has enormous human-shaped in-yer-face boobs or a dripping, drenching cock the size of my left leg. The furry bodies attached to these zones are inconsequential in comparison, which seems kind of topsy-turvy given the viewer will be wearing a fantastically obsessive hand-stitched furrysuit, yet possesses merely an ordinary human-sized cock. And, finally, that the fantasy is to fuck the hell out of a furry animal-creature instead of a person.

And, besides, they covet my teddybear!

But, yeah, I suppose if my kids were gonna stumble across hard-core porn on the net, I'd rather it were furries than sadism.

Yeah, like, it's the same with Star Trek conventions. Hugging. Scratching. Bouncing around. You know, having a good time.

Seems innocent enough. I mean, he could be into guns and denigrating women instead. What would you prefer?

Guess it makes people feel good to point out the weirdos.

NO, I don't like "plushies" or whatever the fuck. I just think the spectacle-ness of pointing out other people's supposed weirdness is itself sick.

Yanno, people who are into humans like some pretty weird stuff too.

Yeah, humans are gross.
