Peep these cute organ-headed guts figurines by vinyl artist David Foox, very cute. Apparently he was inspired to make these Organ Donors vinyl toys after his uncle had a double lung transplant, ugh. Poor uncle. We especially like the Pickled Liver and Black Market kindeys. [via Not Cot -- thanks again, Julie!]
They're stocking candy canes at the grocery store, and our local Bed Bath & Beyond's got plush singing rabbis (I'm not making this up), so that must mean the holidays are near. Gearing up for the holiday season before Thanksgiving fills me with disgust, but being the gut-monger I am, I suppose I must jump aboard the holiday retail bandwagon and remind you to check out our Gutsy Gift Guide. It'll tell you what to buy if your best friend is getting a mammogram, or just the thing for your diabetic brother. There's even a sebaceous gland lapel pin for that diligent cosmotologist who got rid of all those zits for ya. Our handy list will help you find just what the doctor ordered for that marvelous nurse, amazing pediatrician, or that special medical student in your life. So take two lapel pins and call us in the morning.
I finally reconstructed the I Heart Guts Gift Guide for anyone looking to buy gifts for the cardiopulmonologist with a heart of gold, a great hepatologist, or the esthetician who has it all (but does she have a sebaceous gland pin, we ask you?). Also in the wonderful world of guts shopping (sorry to be so crassly commercial, but alas, that is the life of the gut-monger), we now have the ability to shop by gut or gland, so you can look at all, say, the gallbladder stuff we have on offer. Of course you can always type "parathyroid" into the search box with the same results, but it's a fun new feature I thought you gut-lovers might enjoy.
