Most of you are probably too young to know this (I myself am actually to young, but I like to browse the internet)
But in the 70's there was a hype concerning something called the Pet Rock.
Picture:


Basically it was a shameless marketing campaign, who made a few people very, very rich...
They sold the boxes you see above and after a short amount of time, everybody owned a pet rock.

The beauty was you can make it all your own, never have to feed it and even if you have allergies, a pet rock is perfectly save.
Examples:


My question: if you had a pet rock, what would it look like

And on a final note, if anyone knows if these boxes are still available, please tell me I would like to buy one for a friend

Back when I was a teen, I was making out with this girl, when I had the bright idea of putting my hand inside her panties.

She had her period.

I'd leave mine blank. It's like dressing a cat up in a dress and lipstick. Or putting pants on a dog. You just don't do it unless you're Russian.

even better idea - print out the box layout from google images, then find a nice stone in your garden, fill the box with hay, put the stone in, and voila. either keep and pretend it's real, or sell it for 430 moneys.

I think your missing the point. It's not about the actual rock, it's about owning a authentic piece of nostalgia.

My not missing the point. And I said you could pretend it's the official rock. Convince yourself, and you wouldn't know any different.

So you have to actually brainwash yourself into thinking you own a legit version? id just skip the mental strain and buy one

The manual sounds more interesting than the actual rock. How do you write 32 pages on rock care? lol
