Finger puppet maven Stacey Gordon made this bedazzled tampon finger puppet. It has left me without words.

    Cute, funny, love it. Its face is the most amusing part.

    This is creepy and disgusting…why the red rhinestones? Why in general? Really?

  • stacey

    It’s only disgusting if its a real, used tampon. It’s felt & red bedazzle gems. Think about it. (would you rather they be brown bedazzle gems? or yellow?–that, I would think, is disgusting…red just seems normal.)

    This is AWESOME!!!!
    @ Amanda
    Why is it that you think menstruation is soo disgusting?(okay you may not specifically said that but..) It is a beautiful part of life. So if someone embracing it in a funny way disgusts you, then that is really sad.
