Glitter. It’s used to make things sparkly during celebrations, for crafting or for dressing up.
Since I was a dance kid, my experience with glitter usually involved either glitter hair spray, glitter make up or glittery costumes that dusted the stage with glittery specs as we danced. I would find glitter in my hair, on my eyelids, behind my ears and in places that shouldn’t be spoken of for up to a month after I wore it. Glitter is a pretty concept but it has got to be the messiest, most annoying pretty thing there is out there.
Glitter annoys so many people that some Aussies decided to create a company where you can get revenge on your enemies by mailing them an envelope full of glitter. ShipYourEnemiesGlitter.com mails anonymous envelopes of glitter, which they refer to as “craft herpes,” along with a note about how much the person your sending it to sucks. Just pick the person who’s day you want to ruin, put in their address and pay $9.99 Australian Dollars (that’s about $8 US Dollars). Just imagine your enemy trying to dig through the “craft herpes” to get to the note and having a cosmic cloud of glittery dust fill the room they’re in; priceless.
Now I know what you may be thinking: is this for real? That’s the site’s top FAQ. Their answer, “Yes you fucking idiot. We spent too much time, money & resources putting this shit hole of a website up to not get paid for it.”
Currently though because people “have a sick fascination with shipping people glitter,” purchasing has been temporarily suspended so that the company can make sure all those enemies receive the glittery punishment they deserve.
In other glittery news, you can also poop glitter, if you’re into that kind of thing.
