The Jolly Green Rug

Most people have a rug in their home. I bet you do. But do you have a rug that is actually the footprint of a giant who suffers from an absurd amount of chlorophyll?

Probably not.

Don't feel bad, neither do I. But I feel pretty bad about it, so maybe you should, too.

It would be INSANELY cool to own even if it was just a REGULAR furry, green, foot shaped rug.

But this is a furry, green, JOLLY GREEN GIANT's foot shaped rug.

Think how jealous the neighbors would be! Plus, when the sad day comes that the family pooch dies, stick him under the rug and tell people: "Fido was squashed by the Jolly Green Giant."

It would be a great story.

This rug was a mail in premium from 1967.

It only cost a few bucks and a couple of labels from Jolly Green Giant food cans.

Such bliss for such a great price.


  1. I hope bright red socks make a comeback! I am starting to think 1967 was the zenith of our culture.

    I love it! Check out the sexy pose that JGG is striking in the ad!

  3. That rug baffles me but not as much as that large image at the top of the main page. What's coming on Monday? Are angry two year olds taking over the site?

    This question will haunt me all weekend.

  4. The angry 2 year olds are on standby.

    I have two. They are from the late 60s or very early 70s.

    Anyone know what they are worth? You might see me some day on the Antiques Road Show!

    However, the patients may feel more comfortable telling them their feelings, because they feel as if
    they won't be judged. Some schools even require gaining experience first as a prerequisite in your application to the university. As a masseuse, you also have the opportunity to earn tips.
