Finally, my sponge is worthy

Betseyhead 3M and o-cel-o are collaborating with that wacky Betsey Johnson to "bring a new sense of style to your sponge." Seriously, that's what it says on their website.

And this happens not a moment too soon. My sponge has been suffering from very low self-esteem since I brought home the Michael Graves toaster from Target. Problem is, the three sponge styles that are being adapted from Betsey's Fall Fashion Week show don't match my kitchen. Oh well, I guess I'll have to wait until next season's fashions arrive.

Todd Oldham designed cool furniture for La-Z-Boy to help give them an image makeover, Michael Graves brought his design genius to small appliances at Target. I don't know, did sponges really need a makeover? Would you really want to be the designer known for breathing new life into a sponge?

Well, I don't know....I guess if you're gonna buy a sponge you might want to buy the ones that are cooler than the green and yellow ones. But, maybe for young families they should market Sponge Bob sponges. P.S. If I were going to hire a designer to create sponges it so would be Kate Spade. I'm not sure why.

you could tile the office walls with such. Then...it doesn't hurt so much when you bang your head against it.
