Win Your Own Durtbagz!

I’ve got a warped sense of humor. But they say the first step to recovery is admitting you have a problem.

So there’s no shame in shouting it from the rooftops. Or carrying it over my shoulder in bag form. Which is why Durtbagz fits me to a T. The bags (and more recently t-shirts) sport your standard street sign redrawn to crack you up along with a pile of signs created purely out of thin air . . . to crack you up. Creator Erin jokes Durtbagz are one part beer plus two parts time on our hands.

That she’d plaster a giant yellow diamond on a comfortable and genorously-sized bag is part of the hilarity. Slung over the shoulder, Durtbagz are right out there on your body, with a sign saying laugh and the world laughs at me, er, with me. They’re a much-needed laugh where you can stow your stuff.

My pick was the pyramid of stick figure cheerleaders, with one falling from grace. Stolen by my friend Jennifer (yes, they’re that cool, and yes, I’m just that good a friend!), I had to go back to the site to shop for more. I found one more appropriate for motherhood: Baby is Bored (a take-off on “Baby On Board” in case you didn’t catch it). And a Mullet Crossing bag I know would make me a marked woman in this here part of the country (but hey, you have to die laughing, right?).

Think you can do Durtbagz one better? Good, because we’ve got one bag up for grabs, and Inside Out readers can play a role in the next sign to appear on a bag near you. We’ve all seen the “Men Working” signs. What would a “Men Working” sign on a Durtbag look like? Leave it in comments, and you’ll be entered to win your bag!
