Flat Stanley's Hotter Brother

CRAFT TIME!!!

File Under:
Projects undertaken solely to make my children happy; having nothing whatsoever to do with me. Or my blog.




Start with:
High School Musical 3 life-size cardboard cutout of Zac Efron from Blockbuster.
equals

Flat Joe.

Aww, look how happy she is!!!!!
She can keep him up in her room....

Unless it doesn't really go with her decor...

In which case I'll just keep him it in my office.

Now see, if that were me, even if *I* had been the one who created it...here's how that would ultimately end up.

I'd have some reason for heading downstairs in the middle of the night, and upon seeing the life-size cut out and being scared sh!tless, I'd forget it was something I'd created and automatically assume that someone, oddly resembling one of the brother's Jonai had broken into my home. I'd go on the defensive and immediately pummel it, then beat the crap out of it with my rolling pin.

Nice work! I may need to commission you to help me redecorate my beerpong table for Halloween...

Patrice said...

LMAO! Flat Joe I love it! I'm glad to hear you didn't go to all this work just for your blog, because we love you with or without Flat Joe!

Threeboys1mommy said...

Hotter than Flat Stanley!?! Not likely!

You've gone above and beyond my friend, FANTASTIC!

pink green & southern said...

That is frickin' great! My three year old and my 11 year old would be equally impressed.

Swirl Girl said...

this is hysterical!


if you bring him to the airport, do you think he'd get an upgrade?

The Mom said...

I want one!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Annie said...

My daughter would flip her lid if I made that. I'd be mom of the freaking century!

sassy stephanie said...

For the kids, huh?

You are so damn funny!

Amy said...

Damn, I love it! My kids (who I showed this to) thought it was hilarious...but they didnt' ask for one...double damn~ :D

Cocotte said...

Um, yeah, it's in your "office" - right next to your nightstand & bed?

Southern Gal said...

That's awesome! And I love how you got him to do your laundry & clean your kitchen too :)

I need a Flat Joe!

McMommy said...

I can't WAIT to hear your husband's reaction. He's going to be all "Why does Flat Joe have to sleep in our bed tonight??!?"

Simply Shannon said...

Where were you back when I was a kid? I could have used a life size Joe myself (different Joe, but whatever)! Who am I kidding...I'd take one now.
So flipping funny!

jaime said...

words don't say how friggin funny you are...the best is the last pic where you are toasting him. LOVE IT!

cheers.

Allison said...

I can't add much other than you are one creative chick. I want one too.

nikkicrumpet said...

This has got to be the BEST "I've-gone-to-a-lot-of-damn-trouble" blog post in the history of blogging! I'm gonna be snickering about this one for weeks.

Jenni Jiggety said...

The picture of him with the dish towel made me laugh out loud! How I would have loved to be in Kinkos when you placed that order...

Susan in the Psych Ward said...

You have way too much time on your hands!!!

Mrs de Miranda said...

This is soo funny! My little sister would LOVE this!

Piece o' Coconut Cake said...

You have outdone yourself. There is nothing else to say...

The Nice One said...

You are simply amazing.

Amazing.

I wonder if I couldn't make myself a Flat Michael Phelps?! Mmmm Something I must consider.

Just Stephanie said...

oh, girl...you have some major issues! um...he's like so...pure...sue...what do you have plans to do to him??? does this involve a "kit" of some kind? Or perhaps a "where did I come from" book?

Of course then there is a question of where I can do the same for Matthew McConaughey??? Although, I'd be quite happy just watching him walk around the house half naked while vacuuming...simple fantasies....

Tiffany said...

LMAO Fuck where can I get a giant lifesize poster from. My lover Rob Pattinson would look great right next to my bed. LOL

jill jill bo bill said...

Genius. That's it. Genius. And funny. That's it. Funny Genius.

Heather said...

Are you accepting Flat Joe orders at this time?

Liz said...

LOL!!!!! I love it! I'm surprised you didn't show us a picture of Joe "resting" on your pillow. :)

Lisa-licious said...

I had to go back to your posting and confirm that, yes, you are indeed "toasting" Flat Joe. That's my blogger idol. You just ROCK! Miss ya tons!

Practically Joe said...

I wonder ... I'd love to have a Flat Pam (Anderson) ... but what would be the point?

Amy said...

So, are you going to send Flat Joe around the world for pics w/all your blog fans?

Shieldmaiden96 said...

They still publish TIGER BEAT? I almost didn't recognize it without a picture of Donny Osmond or the Bay City Rollers on the cover.

Linda S said...

Awesome! Funniest yet! Figure out how to do this on a blowup doll and you've got Joe in 3D..imagine the possibilities!

3 Peanuts said...

Such a good use of your creativity!

I find you just hiarious. I posted about you on my blog today!

Kim

Heinous said...

So who is that again?

Cathie said...

Oh dear, he is HOT is he not? Such impure thoughts for a boy that isn't even 21 and I am in my 30s.

Katie said...

Love it. You are the coolest mom ever!! :)

Eloise said...

My 11-year-old daughter is a Nick Jonas fan, but I must admit that Flat Joe is pretty darn cute.

ali said...

You crack me up! And remember, you only have 662 more days to plan his big birthday party!

Kimberly said...

Oh just admit it, you are sleeping with that thing in your bed you weirdo.

;)

Rochelle said...

You crack me up. I love how Guard Poodle has that "WTF???" look on his face.

Sassy Pants said...

You absolutely made my day! Hilarious!

Wayne John said...

Too funny, is he really all that and a bag of chips? I don't understand the whole HSM thing I guess...sheesh I'm getting old.

Prefers Her Fantasy Life said...

I love it!! I use to have a life-sized Darth Vadar one back in the day.

DiJo said...

Too funny! My 2nd grader would be the happiest kid on the planet if Flat Joe was waiting for her too!
I found you from 3 Peanuts. And, I just spent way too much time laughing out loud going through some of your older posts! So many great ones!

Anyway, is that a Portugese Water Dog in your pics? If so, I am guessing there are some hilarious moments with he/she too. We have two so I completely understand! I can't imagine a hamster surviving here!

Anyway, thanks for making me laugh today!

Kirsten said...

OMG! I need a flat Joe!!

Terri said...

Dayum!......I now get why you adore Berta y Lupe so much. Your house is spotless.

Petra a.k.a The Wise (*Young*) Mommy said...

haha, I remember Flat Stanley!

Very creative--what an awesome mom you are to create a virtual stud muffin for your daughter!

Lisa@verybusymomwith4 said...

My younger girl loved Flat Stanley---betting the older sister would love Flat Joe ;)
