Pass Me the Roach, Man

I am feeling this roach pin* on Ebay right now! My thoughts are to pin this realistically painted metal piece to my jacket lapel or emerging just a wee bit out of a breast pocket and watch the reactions.

I've got a sick sense of humor.

But it turns out, I'm not alone. Just dig these other roachy goodies

1.  Sterling silver  Roach Brooch

This was the first piece I saw in roach chic and I've been hooked ever since. Somehow a common pest took on a sophisticated sheen. But the price on this guy made me look a little harder

2.USB/ necklace combo

Facebook obsessed girls can get behind this trend too with a blingy USB powerful enough to hold all those incriminating photos of you wearing the USB as a necklace

(Bejeweled cockroach USB/ necklace combo, $33 at

3. Dinner for two

Uninvited guests? Just plop down one of these plates (or bowls or cups) and watch them scatter

(Ceramic 9 inch screen-printed plate, foldedpigs, $18 at

4. Solar powered cockroach toy

This claims to be an educational toy to teach your child about solar energy. I say it's meant for little brothers to scare their sisters. Tomato, tomahto

(Solar powered cockroach educational toy, OWI, $7.95 at

5. Cat nip filled roach cat toys

But why let Junior have all the fun, when Mr Bitey can swat around a giant cockroach too. And really who doesn't want to come home to this sight

(Organic cat nip filled roach, The Cat Farm, $7 at

6. Roach print checks

When paying the rent, I like to include subtle reminders of all my maintenance issues. Right now my checks are of the mysterious leak from above variety, but when they run out...

7. Roach motel keychain

When I started this roundup I fully expected to find the obligatory rubber roach gags,  necktie, and cutesy printed stationary but what the F is this? I am shocked my mom has not sent me one of these!

*Above painted metal roach brooch available on ebay, but I'ma snag it right now!
