Undervalued Items of the Day

posted by on December 10 at 15:35 PM

Slouching along at a mere $61:

An Afternoon on the Green with the Stranger Golf Squad


Eighteen holes of putting and puffing at the Home Course near Fort Lewis, with our slightly dazed in-house golf team (captained by Bradley Steinbacher).

Not pulling its weight at a shamefully low $71:

Dapper and Depilated


The good folks at Salon Dewi call it “manscaping,” but it sounds more like a clear cut—one Brazilian wax for a fellow. Cover up your deforestation with seven new pairs of sleek underthings from Red Drawers. Plus an ensemble from American Apparel—slim slacks, a T-shirt, and a cardigan. And a dashing cap from Bouncing Wall.

(Photos of the ensemble’s constituent parts here, here, and here.)


I forgot to mention—so far, you generous people have raised $31,177 for the noble folks at FareStart. Thank you. So, so much.

But don’t stop now—every little cent goes to help the homeless.

I'll take my wishful-thinkin' funds from Slog Star and move them over to the golf thingy as long as you can assure me that that bear will be there, and like so will be chasing us.

I was looking forward to this one staying under the radar. But, while we're here, does this include beer and golf cart?

Dear rob:

I assume so. But I'll inquire.

does it include a bear? who is on the team and how fast can they run?

I was wondering why people were asking about bears on a golf course and then I actually looked at the photo. "Oh, THAT kind of bear."

This just in from the Stranger Golf Squad, re: cart and beer.

"The Stranger Golf Squad does not ride in carts. We walk. We are men—or at least we pretend to be when we're on the golf course.

As for beer, sure."

Bear attack not guaranteed.
