Oh, no! You're all dressed for your wedding but you just realized your bladder is full? What to do? Have no fear. WeddingWeeWee to the rescue!

Oh, no! You’re all dressed for your wedding but you just realized your bladder is full! What to do? Have no fear. Etsy to the rescue!

Et·som·ni·a (/etˈsämnēə/), noun, 1. a sleep disorder caused by obsessive Etsy browsing. 2. the surprising arrival of weird handmade merchandise ordered when one is only half conscious. (True story.)

Has this ever happened to you?

Some of the items found on Etsy are so off the wall, so bizarre, so WTF that they deserve their own cheesy late-night commercial. Since I don’t have that kind of time, I’m instead going to devote this week’s Etsomnia to them.

For more Etsy fun, check out all my weekly Etsomnia™ posts.

  1. I think I missed a lot of this post – was laughing too hard at “Lena Dunham your spirit animal” to read through the tears. Thanks!

  3. If I wasn’t at work I would be literally falling off my chair! That “Birth Control Glasses” just killed me – because you just KNOW some hipster would think they’re the bomb… Funny stuff. 😉

  4. It’s a constant worry of mine….the being too sexy, that is. Such a relief to see a solution in this post. Thank you.

  5. The question is, do they make money out of this? ? ‘Cause if they do… wow! LoL

  6. The red nose warmer looks like it also could fit in the cat-toy group directly below, Donna. If that part needed winter clothing.

    And the chant to attract money that costs seven grand may be the most fitting chain-mail order item ever conceived. I can see it now when the next-witch-up receives the package and rips open the instructions. “Now place your ad online with the instructions to send $7,050 …”

    Thanks for the entertainment!

  7. The Chant thing was wildly overpriced. Mine are on sale for way less….no takers yet,but the economy is still in recovery.
    Things for the morning laugh.
