Ridiculous Inflatable Swan-Thing

Not bad but for my money it’s still difficult to top Alan Moore’s groundbreaking run of Swan-Thing.


It’s Oyasumi Pun-Pun!


I’m holding out for a Giant-Sized Swan-Thing.


I’m attracted and repulsed at the same time.


It get’s worse:image


Is it me or is that swan thing flipping the bird?


This swan is art. It speaks to me.


Swan or Dolphin sex toy?


Still my favorite swan-thing:




A concept ripe for expansion. Patio furniture. Kitchenware. And, of course, Netflix animated sitcom.


I was already thinking it looked like an Adventure Time character. Maybe Swan-Thing can be that crazy replacement show nobody really wanted or needed and yet watches anyway.


Now there’s an oxymoron for you.



By an odd coincidence, I have a photograph of Cory Doctorow sitting on a ridiculous pink inflatable flamingo thing. It resembles a flamingo slightly more than that thing resembles a swan (i.e. it has a beak), suggesting that Cory’s taste in ridiculous inflatable waterfowl leans more toward figurative art than abstract impressionism.


I’d say we have a winner here.
