(Newser) – If you have a chicken in need of a trusty poncho, or should you find yourself dying for a 16-inch reusable menstrual pad, good news: You can buy either—or both—of those items on Etsy, the site where artists sell handmade items. If you aren’t looking for a chicken poncho but just need a way to kill some time, check out Regretsy instead—the blog that compiles the most ill-advised Etsy items, including the aforementioned two, and more:

  • Corset jeans
  • "Dick or Treat" adults-only Halloween necklace
  • Organic Michael Jackson cat toy
  • Pin made out of a turtle foot
  • Painting involving a naked woman, a bear, and a pair of mittens
  • Gold-plated binder clip
  • Neon zebra pants
  • Mounted fake white tiger head bejeweled with Swarovski crystals
