While the couch-based commerce of home-shopping programs is an undeniable boon, their housewives-only focus means their only value is cheery banter to pass out to. For convenient consumerism with an edge: HoneyShed.
HoneyShed's an online bazaar of carefully culled goods, plugged by sketch comedians -- fearlessly profane actors riffing on stuff you'd actually want, instead of failed weathermen pimping feline eyeliner. Products range from DVDs and video games, to a portable lie detector, to leather-and-brass European sneakers w/ footbeds based on SWAT team specs, for the look of a man who'd look classy kicking down a door, or riding in a van. As for the segments, apparently, the Spycam Boombox's chief value is spying on your grandmother at the nursing home, while the moral gleaned from Risky Business is "Sometimes you get a hooker and it's a woman, sometimesÂ…whatever".
HoneyShed's still in Beta, so expect expanded offerings, and in January, Daily Deals. For a non-consumerist taste of their steez, click the "Fun Sh*t" tab -- random skits you can pass out to, without waking up to find your cat's made up like a prostitute.
