All together it looked cool. “Scattered” it looked pretty messy. I dunno how I feel about this one.
I would totally fucking buy that. That’s awesome.
“Last night I dreamt I was eating a giant hamburger. When I woke up, my scatter pillows were gone!”
What if we combined this with the Campin’ Condiments?
My doggies would so chew that up!
That chili dog thingy is hysterical. Looks like a few patrons got into a brawl after waiting in line too long for their Pinks dogs.
I can just envision me and the big man watching a show when I politely request him to pass me the beef.
it would be cute in the right setting. don’t know aboout the price tag, though.
That would go perfect with my burger bed!
This is awesome. I would totally buy it if I had kids.
i just wish the bun wasn’t the same colour as the beef. otherwise, i’d buy it
whimsicle fuckery at it finest!

The hamburger one I almost like. The chilli dog version is disturbed – it looks like a giant cat threw it up covered in hairball…
Hit me. I like it.
That’s a cheeseburger, DAMMIT! Can’t they even get their own product title right?!
Goes without saying that this begs for a french fry shag rug.
I do not need pillows to make it look like food is all over my couch. My 4 year old takes care of that for me.
Now I want the burger bed, too.
HK, I’m think of your radio show everytime I order a burger, fries, and a cccccokkkkkkke at Carl’s Jr.
“Hit me. I like it.”
You’re allowed to like things. We didn’t even say anything negative about these pillows. Some things are just a little off, you know?
I can has trailer park?
OMG! I had one of those in the 80s and I LOOOOOVEEED it!
Is this from the David Hasselhoff collection?
The chili dog ‘shop looks more like a murder scene than an actual chili dog. Annnnd there goes my appetite. My Weight Watchers leader fucking loves you, Regretsy!
I like to thumb you up just because you are hot.
Can you recommend something that’ll get special sauce out of upholstery?
It’s a little pricey — but if I had the extra bux I’d probably buy it. My decorating style is “a-little-crazy-and-nothing-matches” anyway…so why the hell not?
Yeah $220 is a little high. I think my mom saw mine in one of her magazines and made it for me.. back when, you know, every mom sewed. Not just those who want to.
“I like to thumb you up just because you are hot.”
It’s all a ruse.
I think I prefer my cushions a bit more well done.
From one of my favorite artists:
Right on Skully! I especially love his toilets….
I want to put my 1 year old in the middle of that and take pictures. That is way to awesome, lol.
i simply must have one of these.
that said, we’ve got a little trucker, frontage road diner here in the south called “waffle house” and they’ve got THE most glorious hash browns – and you can get them, and i quote:
scattered, smothered, covered, chunked diced, peppered, capped, and topped.
now THAT would be fun pillows.
While somewhat pricey, this is imaginative, appears to be well made, would be fun for the kids, and isn’t crap, so…why’s it on Regretsy? Speaking of crap, Helen, is that what you put on your chili dogs? ‘Cause I actually put chili on mine.
It’s on Regretsy because I think it’s corny and stupid. – HK
While I’m not generally into fake food, those look super comfy.
Okay, I’m sorry but while I would not buy these, I think they are awesome!
“Contact us today and lettuce make one custom for you!”
Hey there Rocktroll: FUCK YOU! That being said, I was in love with these pillows until I saw the price tag. WOW. That’s some buggery right there, and no, I don’t mean fuckery. For $220 I want the couch, too.

“It’s all a ruse.”
Hot AND sneaky. I like it!
Personally , I wouldn’t have these , but I don’t think the price is terribly unreasonable, considering the cost of fabric , stuffing , labor, design . What I can’t understand is apologizing for liking them !
Rocktroll- Maybe we should just run these by you first, and you can give final approval.
“What I can’t understand is apologizing for liking them !”
No one has to apologize for anything. Anyone who’s apologizing is doing it of their own volition. I like plenty of shit that no one else likes. I make no apologies.
I recently decorated my apartment like a Happy Meal bag and now I know what its missing!
Seriously, I want this so hard. P.S. I feel like a taco bed would be awesome.
#19 Bronc Drywall :
No. Really. Hit me.
“Where’s the Beef?!”
I’ll admit I’m a bit disappointed. The title had me geared up for WAY nastier.
#7 …first he passes you the beef – then comes the secret sauce…
plus it appears the seller is playing “hide the pickle” as it is not shown and what is a hamburger pillow without pickle
Just FYI, the cost of materials could be less than $50 if you shopped right. Most could be purchased from the remnant bin with only the buns being from the bolt. Stuffing is pretty cheap. And they’ve cleverly made it look larger than it is since that’s a love seat, not a full-size sofa. If you’re fast on a machine, including changing bobbins, I bet you could get it done in 4 hours. There’s about a 120% markup there. But, it really makes me want to break out my own machine and make vegan…
Is this made of Jersey (cow)? He he.
I’ll have mine with extra mustard please
Umm…I actually love this. A LOT.
#49 busybody : get ‘ole tightass to buy this so I can come over and sit on his beef, that’ll piss him off.
Even at $50 for materials and 4 hours of labor, it still shouldn’t really sell for any less than $180, IMO. Love it or hate it, I think the price is probably pretty fair for a handmade item.
psssst busybody- the soy sauce and ketchup come with their own special sauce stain spot- easy to clean and 35.00
RCB What did you do to piss everyone off and get all the thumbs down in other thread?? You’re naughty.
Killer lookie what I found for you. You’ll never have to go without those eggs again.
#54 IDK- yah have to ask everyone else. I thought my sitting on a gold mine crack was outstanding. You?
I thought the gold mine bit was good.
#41 Bronc Drywall: “Rocktroll- Maybe we should just run these by you first, and you can give final approval.”
Brilliant idea, but since I don’t have the time, let me suggest Regretsy go back to featuring the craptastic. Perhaps even using a fabulous guideline like, oh, I don’t know, maybe “it looks like you made it with your feet”?
You seem to have plenty of time. – HK
#38 amccarthy7734: “Hey there Rocktroll: FUCK YOU!”
And a warm hello right back to you, dearie. Are you always so eloquent?
Check out this seller’s blog- there are more pics of the other cool stuffed food that she has created…
If only I had a “lounge room” or “living are” for these to brighten up…
Seriously, for a kid (or college student) these look pretty cool, but I still have a hard time with the idea that the price tag is reasonable.
That Sunny Side Up pillow is a friend of mine’s shop!
She makes some really cute food pillows (including a PBJ sandwich), among other things. When I first saw this post, I thought it might be from her shop, too.
I actually agree with everything you said…before you started messin’ with Helen’s chili dog. Those things are nasty and give my husband vicious gas (and subsequent dutch ovens). I think her photo shop of said fast food nastiness was spot on.
And yes, these pillows would be fun for kids but not for parents. I’d have to yell at the little bastards all day- “get your grubby paws off the lettuce! Stop hitting your sister with the buns! Who spilled juice on the f#@#in…
i adore this one: http://www.etsy.com/listing/47389202/fortune-cookie-pillow-large
too cute. and very reasonably priced.
#66 Wilma Fingerdoo: Greetings! I was just sayin’! Does that look like chili to you? It looks less like a chili dog and more like what your husband produces after eating one. (Not that I know personally what your husband produces, of course, I’m just taking your comment to its inevitable conclusion.)
Yep, us kids sure would have been having hamburger pillow fights. Lettuce vs. Cheese, a battle to remember.
(Boy I really should think about buying one of these t-shirts)
“…let me suggest Regretsy go back to featuring the craptastic.”
This is the risk we take every time we post something that isn’t out-and-out garbage.
Two problems with this:
1. There’s something out there for everybody. This site proves that, and quite conclusively. It’s all going to wind up being subjective anyway, so we might as well have the final say in the matter. My idea of crap is not the same as Helen’s which is not the same as yours, etc.
(to be continued)
2. Things wind up on Regretsy for all kinds of reasons. The site has changed over time, and the featured products have changed as well. Sometimes we feature something that looks like complete garbage, just a real steaming pile. Sometimes it’s a fine product, but the description is excessively twee or overlong. Sometimes the product is decent, but there are a bunch of ludicrous spelling errors. Sometimes it’s not really handmade or not really vintage…
(to be continued)
Some listings just make you shake your head and wonder why anyone would make such a thing (vulvacraft). Sometimes we just make fun of something because it’s Twilight-based. Sometimes there’s nothing at all wrong with the product but it just strikes us as a little off, or something that’s probably not marketed to the right age group (Cthulhu keychains for children).
Occasionally we even post something that we absolutely love. We’re sneaky like that.
(to be continued)
The point is, not everything winds up on here because it’s an ugly pile of shit. There aren’t any ironclad rules. We look at a listing, and if something about it strikes us as worth featuring, we write about it. If it tickles our fancy in some way –whatever way that may be– we’ll feature it.
Now please don’t make me explain it again.
Could you please explain why some things that aren’t really awful get featured on Regretsy?
Pull up a chair…
Pardon me, but as a Regretsy fan, I do kinda look for things that genuinely warrant ridicule.
Well that’s what you’re here for. – HK
I love that regretsy isn’t all about terribly made items and I love food pillows.
I’d love to buy those cheeseburger pillows for my son’s room but at that price he’ll have to settle for a picture of them LOL.
#26: “PKitty” would make a great rap star name.
I love the fact that Helen keeps replying directly inside Rocktroll’s comments. It’s sort of like saying, yeah, you keep complaining, but just remember I’m in the driver’s seat, beeyotch.
FWIW there have been several Regretsy items that Helen has actually purchased on her own, so it’s not like it all has to be horrible. Sometimes it’s just super funny or cute or weird. Like, you know, giant hamburger pillows.
Wow if it was a little less expensive I would totally buy that!
#76 HK – As are we all.
Personally, I think this is reasonably priced for furniture. I’m all for paying people a living wage, plus a little extra for their creativity. Sure, I could probably whip up one of these out of my fabric and upholstery foam stash, but the idea would never occur to me! That has to be worth something. If not, just get everything made by Chinese indentured servant labor at Wal-Mart.
This is the greatest thing I have ever seen in my life. But maybe it’s because I just went to Burger King.
I want, I want, I want.
#80 HermesGoddess: “I love the fact that Helen keeps replying directly inside Rocktroll’s comments. It’s sort of like saying, yeah, you keep complaining, but just remember I’m in the driver’s seat, beeyotch.”
Beeyotch? Jeez not that again.
One of my comments was editorially butchered, which a such a nice person like Helen surely wouldn’t do. Next time it’s too clever for ya (whoever), just mercifully delete it, OK?
Oh for fucks sake, quit doggin’ each other & have a chill pill.
Or a chili pill.
“Next time it’s too clever for ya…”
I’ll keep that in mind.
#87 Wilma: A chili pill! LOL. It’s a chili pill and some Jägermeister for me, all right, and a fond good evening to (almost) everyone.
Now you can always haz cheezburger.
i would so buy that. if it wasnt 200 bucks, that is. or if i wasnt poor.
did the seller delete the listing? that would be odd since the comments were overwhemingly positive.
#92 geektastic: No, not deleted…SOLD! On 11/25/09, to a buyer who called it “fantastic”.
I have a knitted hamburger that would go with that. I should email the buyer. She could put it in her cat’s bed or something, so they would match.
Actually, I think that’s pretty funny. Would be cute in a kids’ room.
I totally was going to buy that for my son’s birthday!
And she removed it? Awwww
#79 batontwirler1 :
As seen in Mayor McCheese’s masturbatorium.
I used to be vegan, and I have to admit I’d still have this in my house for kicks. It’ll go great with my Velvet Elvis!
i have a crotched one, along with other food stuffies, i made for my little nephews. they eat that stuff up.
tip your servers!
I like the hamburger pillows.
I’m with ya, Bronc …. I think it’s as cute as heck. I’d balk a bit at the price …. but am tempted to whip one up for my otherwise rather staid digs.
I love pranks which can go either way …. and minds which challenge you to decide whether someone is nuts or a genius …. ambivalence is FUN!
I have to admit, I kinda like it.
The chili dog is funny as hell. And it might have something to do with the guy who craps purple paint.
Where’s the onions? Can’t have either one of those without onions!
I can has cheezburger…on my sofa?
