Every product mocked in this week’s Dustinland is a real product featured in a recent issue of Sky Mall magazine. A few weeks ago I was on a flight and decided to flip through Sky Mall out of boredom. Upon seeing some of these ridiculous products I was inspired to draw a comic on the spot, which is kind of weird to do in public because people glance over at you and assume you’re some creepy loser (which is not true in my case, since I’m just a regular loser, not a creepy one). That’s why I make sure to wear a T-shirt that says, “I’m a professional cartoonist for MAD Magazine.” Then people take me seriously. They usually come up to me and say, “Wow, MAD is still around? I used to read that when I was 14. Remember those things in the back? The fold-ins? Those were awesome. I hated everything else. And I hate you. And why aren’t you wearing any pants?” But yeah, Sky Mall magazine sure has some crazy stuff in there.
