From The Auxiliary Guild: How to make a cupcake!

One of our readers, Wisteroni, sent us the link to the video she made to make fun of The Hammock Video

It's so damn funny I don't recommend you drink or eat during it - or after!

I was so sad when this was over, brilliant.
But, I really had to pee. Heed the warning, pee before you watch, Danielle.

The Incredulous One said...

I have just peed in my pants.

wristeroni said...

Incredulous -
I'll post an eco-friendly Faux-Depends tutorial next week . . . just for you.

WindysDesigns said...

OMFG!!!!!!! i AM HERE laughing like a lunatic.

You forgot the paper mustache though. Next time.

newreader said...

I think I am going to die.



From laughing.




Indie cupcakes for EVERYone!
With a side of cynical!
And some adult beverages on the side will add the perfect touch - or should that be EtsyAdmin flavor KoolAid? *evil grin*

The Funny One said...

Can I Tivo this please?

Wende said...

Seriously? Why isn't this posted as a Video Response on the Death Shroud video?

That would make me happy.

I'm easily amused.

The Incredulous One said...

Wristeroni, I appreciate your concern for my bladder issues. I will await your tutorial with glee.

Maybe Etsy Labs could do a how-to on making protective undergarments for all those old ladies in the midwest - they can teach them to make use of scraps from their quilting nights.

Or maybe they can just upcycle all their crappy broken hammocks, fold 'em up, and stick them in their underwear.

TheSneakyOne said...

Fucking priceless!!!

wristeroni said...

Damn! You're correct. I forgot mustaches!

I posted it as a response vid on youtube . . . we'll have to see if they "approve" it.

The Disgruntled One said...

I totally hurt myself watching this!

eclipse said...

WIN!!!!!!!!!

This made me laugh so hard, omg, so perfect. Has etsy seen it?
5 out of 5 stars!!!!
Moar plz.

Jen Segrest (verybigjen) said...

omfg. I snorted gravy out my nose. The screen of my powerbook is a mess. Typing through the gravy to say AWESOME.

Your video was edited nicer than thiers too. Did you see Bre's "How to edit video" video. What a fucking retard. I can't believe they pay him to do that.

Now off to clean my screen... what gets gravy off superior computing power?

MajorFuckingEtsyBurnout said...

Sweet baby jesus, I lost it when the hammer and the advil entered the picture. ROFLMAO, as the kids say...

***PLEASE*** make more!

Baby, I ain't too proud to beg.

I eagerly await your next tutorial!

The Kinky One said...

Wristeroni


You are a fucking genius.


That is all, carry on.
*bowing*

newreader said...

We can haz moar plz?


Moar!


We wantz MOAR videoz like this!





*goes to see if the "video response" link has been approved*

just bitchy said...

OMG! The hammer was perfect!!!

A+++++++++

Thank you!!!!!!!

This is a perfect lesson for Etsy...

Don't fuck with creative people.

wristeroni said...

OK, who dares me to post it on the Etsy boards . . . I'm not a seller so what is the worst that could happen?

wristeroni said...

It's here on Etsy now!

Might need a bump, though, I think it was buried pretty quickly.

lessa said...

Oh my, that was fabulous!

MajorFuckingEtsyBurnout said...

Hmmm, I think you should post it under "Business Topics" actually....haaaaaaaaa

impetuous said...

Be CREATIVE! It's all about your STYLE! Love this video!

sound&fury said...

oh dear god, that was brilliant and demonstrates that I'm only a novice at the art of satirical Etsy blogging. Genius!

I am SO the boss of you! said...

Ok, now my sides hurt from laughing! Curse you cupcake lady!!

*shakes fist

silver-gwyn said...

That was fucking brilliant!

I bow to you (now that I have finally caught my breath from laughing so hard)!

Holly said...

A how-toish masterpiece!Damn funny!

Kali said...

Marry me!

Even Kali Jrs. #1 and #2 were laughing.

Andy Mathis said...

The Malevolent One said...

...can't... breathe... choking... with laughter...

oooh, caliente!

[dies of hilarity]

j. hart photography said...

holy SHIT that was hilarious!!!!!

oh man, someone at etsy has to make another how-to video so whoever made that can do another video! i loved it!

forum rubbernecker said...

A few reviews:

"Glitter, Red dye #5, and zippo! This film has it all! A must see!"

"Two cupcakes up for Wristeroni's directorial debut!"

" Oscar worthy indeed, for "Best Short Mocking Etsy"!"

"Caliente!"

The Righteous One said...

Colorvive - $4
Sprinkles - $2
Flaming Dixie cups - $1

Making fun of Etsy - priceless

Wende said...

It's too bad they won't allow this to be a linked video. Although, anyone clicking on the stats and data link will find this:

jodie nicholson said...

I've watched it four times now...I laugh harder every time.

hella said...

oh my god, where is my inhaler??? i am WHEEZING, i'm laughing so hard!!!

ebbandflo said...

so funny - will these cupcakes be listed in your etsy shop soon?


pls make more how to's (and warn those of us with asthma to have meds on hand to quell the wheezing induced by laughing insanely!!)

el-stinko-armpit said...

Bravo! That was so well done that I think even viewers who never saw the death shroud video would luv it.

I did manage to eat a sushi roll while watching without getting wasabi up my nose. But I have to bake breakfast muffins tonight, and I know I am gonna have a hard time trying not to spill stuff all over 'cause I'll be laughing!

Hope you are going to pack up those yummies and send them to Etsy Labs...get some dry ice to put those fires out.

ShrugItOff said...

Kudos! Awesome job!


Hair conditioner, glitter and lighter fluid.

Hahahahahahahahaha

the fluffy one said...

All I need is confirmation that you are an UNlicensed kitchen!
That is hilarious! thank you!

PG said...

Absolutely marvellous, still laughing from the other side of the Atlantic.

Yarn Girl Stuff said...

Wow! I don't think Etsy could have done it better!

You deserve two gold stars (the scratch and sniff kind!).

idyll hands said...

Classic! Now I have to go watch the hammock video again and compare notes - but I think the Oscar goes to glittery cupcake goodness :)

curious said...

Fucking Fantastic! Hee!

eclipse said...

"any kind of white powder will do"
hmmmmmm
Have you discovered the secret ingredient of Etsy's magic cupcakes?

TheSneakyOne said...

eclipse, I was thinking of the "white powder" and my partner and I tee-hee'd at the thought of using cocaine or heroin.. Maybe meth... Cuz any white powder would do. LOL.. Magic cupcakes, indeed.

old hippie bitch said...

El Spoofo Perfecto! You summarized today's etsy beautifully. It was a clear message, but are Rob and Maria listening?

And damn well done...even without $27,000,000.

dances with cupcakes said...

I want more!!! That was awesome!!!

etsyaddict said...

Oh. My. Goodness.

More please??

Combustion Glassworks said...

I about died at Hammertime!

My suggestion... put it up on Ebay, see how much Rokali will buy it for ;)

Trollie said...

Mmm. I bet they have fabulous indie flavor as well. =)
I was sad when it was over too!

wristeroni said...

Combustion Glassworks -
You're right . . . I should package it as a cd on Ebay (with an Evil Eye quilt cover) LOL

Combustion Glassworks said...

I have tears in my eyes!

Do it! the bead went for like $44 right? HAHA!

cantremember said...

I have to say I have never seen anything funnier. My sister and I were on the phone, both watching it, and couldn't breathe for laughing.

LicaLee said...

Instant classic.

I can has hospital bill from project I learned from etsy?

*refrains from spewing cliche "must see" movie review type phrases*

peacekeeper redux said...

Sent it to my Martha Stewart insider friend tonight, she develops crafts for the TV show

Thank you so much. My deep depression was lifted immeasurably.

Posting it on ebay is brilliant and RK probably would buy it, he is one sick puppy.

Merrill said...

OMG....I am in tears. MORE!!!!

maillemystique said...

OMG! My dog is looking at me like I'm a nut I'm laughing sooooooo hard.
Excellent.

blacksheep said...

Hubby and I watched this and literally howled with laughter. Our 6-year-old daughter loved it, too.

Ebert and Roeper - two thumbs up!

wristeroni said...

peacekeeper -
That would be hilarious if Martha watched it : )
