Platypurse

I'm really excited that this metallic leather platypus clutch exists, and that somehow, even with those little webbed feet, it's sort of elegant.

Handmade platypus purse available at this awesome etsy shop.

I can't believe it isn't called a Platypurse. I mean...that's just obvious, like round windows on a nautically themed restaurant.

Renee said...

love it.

sara said...

obsessed with that store, fareal.

When I first saw the word "platypurse" in your tweet, I thought you were referring to any purse that features seemingly incongruous elements all in one handbag--kind of like how a platypus has a duck's bill and feet and the body of a beaver. But now I see you meant it literally, and wow, that's some platypurse!

I'll see your platypus (technically a duckbill platypus - someone with zoology parents should know better) and raise you a nine-banded armadillo: http://www.geekalerts.com/tag/bag/page/2/

Ack! That was MADE for me!

reminds me of a dachshund purse I had years ago. There was a company that was semi-famous for those. I think it was called Patch?

This. Is. Amazing! When aim was cool (it's not anymore, right?) my screen name was PlatypusKaty because I make this face that apparantly is a great impression of a platypus. I need this purse.

Cute! I do a great platypus face. Maybe you should have a competition where we send you pics for a chance to win it?! LOL, no really maybe?

No wonder my monster backpack has been looking sad, he wants a platypurse friend and who am I to deny a poor depressed monster bag?

Ornithorhynchus anatinus: Since there is only one sp. of Platypus extent within the two families of monotremes,the adjective prefix "duck-billed" does not distinguish it from any other exemplars except for extinct sp. and is thereby redundantly redundant. And I love platapodes(pl.) and hope to see one in the wild one day.

I want one of those so badly, even though I NEVER use a clutch (I'm too lazy, and I need my hands for holding drinks and gesturing emphatically).

But a platypus? C'mon... I need that.

What would Martin think about this....?

Renée T. Bouchard said...

Holy crap! That is hilarious. Where do I begin? The fact that it is not only a platypus, but a METALLIC platypus to boot? Holy. Crap.

C said...

That is amazing. I kinda want it to be my pet and not my purse.

I don't know. It's either really awesome or really horrible! I think the shiny puts it firmly in the realm of awesome though. You can't go wrong with shiny.

It's so awesome. I showed my friend, and we're saving up to get one sheep and one hedgehog. (My name means hegehog in some language. How cool is that?) And the sheep will be her graduation gift! Thank you for showing us!!
