Since we’ve already established that arts-and-crafts online bazaar Etsy derives its name from the Greek word for “thus so”, parody site Regretsy can be construed as “thus, uh-oh”.

Among the cheesy hand-crafted crap in the snarky spotlight is this “custom simple Grecian style one-shoulder tunic”:

Oh look, a bed sheet tied in a knot. That is simple and sweet! And when you’re done wearing it, you can throw it out the window and lower yourself to freedom.

Off on a tangent: I’m sorely tempted to add a “k” to the name, and come up with “ReGretsky” — a site dedicated to a running critique of Wayne Gretzky.

The eleventh cookie in “The Daily Fortune Cookie Fortune” project on Flickr advises us to get ready, take aim, and fire — with love!

To love deeply in one direction makes us loving in all others.

A nice sentiment from this fortune. Although the notion of omnidirectional good vibes makes me cringe a little.
