.... unless you can find someone who actually bought it!

40 bucks for an unpainted jar lid with an old valve tied to it?

Maybe the 'maker' was taking the "Whiz"...

Once seen, never forgotten... I now have a cheese whiz (and I don't even know what that is!) 'necklace' burned into my brain. Now I have to search the interweb to find a 'Steampunk' thing that is less steampunk than that.

Not Cheex Whiz, But Cheeze Whiz *Light*  ::) The other type has an attractive red cap. Still guaranteed to stop your heart in 100 sandwiches or less.

Steampunk ... you keep using that word.  I don't think it means what you think it means.

Imagine someone showing up to a steampunk themed party with this on.


This is none of the things it is described as. Granted, might be a mistake in their website

If you do find it, don't hesitate to post it here!

Does the hippo tell the time? Hopefully this is not a full sized hippo. The shipping charges would be terrible!

Putting a full size hippo in your pocket doesn't sound like a good idea either

A micro hippo bred by a mad aristocrat with too much time on their hands and an excess of hippos actually sounds like it could make its way into a steampunk story or two ;D
I wear goggles so you can't see when I'm staring at you.

Well, yeah. I could tell you that a micro-hippo watch could be Steampunk. But that would make me a hippocrite.   ;D

Where there's smut, there's brass.  You might say.
Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.

Ok not exactly Steampunk, but I don't see anything wrong with producing a brass knob of this shape, The phallus has been depicted in various forms since ancient times,  Cerne Abbas Giant being a fine example, so why not?

Haha; many years ago, now, I was on holiday in Weymouth and we, that is, my parents and I, happened upon one of those New Age sort of shops. In the window was a CernevAbbas Giant clock. One arm formed the hour hand, the other formed the minute hand, and for the second hand....

Well, colloquially there are steampunk adventures that might require testicles of brass.

Although this item is presumably well polished, I would query why 'our' steampunk emblem should be described as "small"...

Well my French isn't up to much but, "I am a woman with arse" seems to be the gist of it.

I remember (repeatedly) seeing one of these in a shop window in Dorchester on holiday as a teenager. Needless to say there was always a quiet tittering...
