You-Doo Dolls

Got an inkjet printer and an insatiable blood vendetta against someone who's inconveniently filed a restraining order against you?

No? Just us?

Regardless, anyone can enjoy a You-Doo Doll from Noted LLC. It's a whole kit for creating a Voodoo doll of virtually anyone. The kit includes an inkjet iron-on transfer sheet and doll-sized shirt, skirt, and pants.

As you can see, we've taken the liberty of Voodooing Tricia and Jonathan. Go ahead and right-click their picture and "save-as" to magically transfer Tricia and Jonathan into your computer where they'll have to battle a Tron-esque super-villain in order to escape.

Stay Classy, Louisville

You've come to know and love WHY Louisville as the place to get a ridiculous, or adorable, or ridiculously adorable T-shirt. But sometimes your in-laws come over for dinner. You have to throw that T-shirt in the closet and put on something a little fancier. Something you might even use a clothes hanger for. There's no need to head to the Mall-o-Plex just yet. We've still got you covered.

Fleur-de-Lis Polo Tee
It'll work on the golf course. Or in da club. Or anywhere else you may be apt to wear a polo shirt. Printed on 100% cotton American Apparel brand polo tees.

Fleur-de-Lis Leisure Dress
There's nothing classier than a Louisville lady in a leisure dress. Printed on 100% combed cotton American Apparel brand leisure dresses.

Five Year Anniversary Wrap-up

We had a blast this past weekend celebrating five years of WHY Louisville-ness. Between the celebrities, the free T-shirts, and the unveiling of our new sidewalk sign, there was hardly enough Saturday to contain all of the fun!

Here's a little taste of what you were missing if you couldn't make it down. Check out even more photos on our Facebook page. A big, big thanks to John Wurth at Hatch Creative for the excellent photography.
