Bizarre-ness (Bizarrity?) at the Dollar Store

I was looking through the pictures on my BB, and realized I haven't shared this with anyone yet.

I was at the dollar store around Christmas, getting some bows and tissue paper for my gifts, when I came upon this marvelous piece of publishing gold:

It seemed like one of those cheap generic word search books with themes like city names (that you've never heard of) and dog breeds (that you've never heard of). It didn't look like it had anything to do with Winona Ryder, or even celebrities in general.

I wonder if Winona knows about this? Could the geniuses that made this get in trouble?

I know dollar stores (especially the mom-and-pop ones) are rife with weird stuff like this, and seeing it only fuels my desire to splurge and get the good stuff, but sometimes I get a kick out of the bizarre merchandise they get away with selling.

Hi, Cat. I just wanted to say hello, and thank you for visiting (and following!) Bug Safari.

I think it's funny that you describe yourself as a 10 year old in an adult body. I have always said that I am still 12 inside. So I guess that makes me a little more mature, but not much.

Take care,

I know, sometimes I just want to go crazy at the dollar stores and buy some many weird and fun stuff...but I have to curb the 12 year old that is inside me sometimes or I would have a house full of more crazy stuff, but I would totally buy the Winona word find...
