So. I’ve been faffing about on Etsy & WAHM sites, a’lookin & a’dreamin about fluffy mail, and I’ve made an interesting discovery.
What ARE they I hear you ask? Circus tents for pet fleas? The new craze in fashionable hats for Barbie?
They are small cones of fabric that people actually buy (…and for someone to buy it, remember, someone has to make it…) to place over their baby boy’s genitals during a nappy change, to prevent a well-aimed stream of urine splashing them in the face.
Never mind a flannel, a strategically placed wipe or even speeding the hell up with the nappy changes, what you need right there is a Peepee Teepee, a Weewee Tent, a Caution Cap or a Sprinkle Stopper (I WISH I were making these up…).
I find the whole concept, obviously, terribly amusing & feel there will be a wave of even more embarrassed than usual young men blushing over the slideshows at their 21st birthday parties in 21 years time.
I have linked the pictures. Just don’t tell me if you buy some, & I won’t ask.
PS, The first commenter to come up with a better name than the ones mentioned above wins not goods, not money, but my undying admiration.
PPS, There is a frikkin game about them!!!
