Somewhere, Mario Puzo is very proud of the Horse Head Pillow Case. For those of you that love the Godfather, you know that this is a fun revenge-light gag gift.

We got gargoyles in the trees! Artist Clément Briend takes the textures of trees and light projects images of gargoyles to give the effect that the trees are indeed alive. The result is some of the most beautiful, and fun, imagery we have been able to post on this site in the past few months.
