The things people decorate their homes with are always funny. Some people buy the most random and useless garbage of which to adorn their houses.

But of everything I’ve seen the decorative throw pillow, throws me the most. (Ba dum pssh)

Okay so I understand that the throw pillow on the living room couch is there to tie the room together  – dude’s rug, big Lebowski, CLASSIC!~

And it matches the other colors of the room, and it is decorative. BUT, there could not be a more USELESS piece of furniture!

This thing gets thrown to the floor, moved out of the way or adjusted by every single person who sits down!

It should be called the throw (on the floor cause its in the way) pillow.

And the lucrative business savvy of the person that came up with the idea for the pillow made for decoration! Must be a bazillionaire.

Cause’ I mean, regular pillow at wal*mart: 6.99 (this one you sleep on, Nightly!)

Throw pillow at Pier 1 imports: 22.50 , its imported, from Taipei.


The two only times I ever see the decorative throw pillow actually utilized is when some poor soul shows up late to the soirée –  and has to sit on the floor like a misbehaved child.

Poor guy is like – “on the floor? Really? you don’t have one extra folding chair, well put me at the children’s table while we eat too, geez, matter of fact, pass me on of those throw pillows, if I’m going to sit on the floor like a schnauzer, I’m at least going to be semi comfortable.”

Or …

When someone next to you or across the room says something crass or insulting, then it really becomes a throw pillow as you bean someone for being a butt.

The tags are always amusing on these pillows, the places these pillows come from and the advice they offer you for proper pillow maintenance. It really is a good read when the conversation gets boring.

Put em in your house, put 30 on your love seat, but they are useless even as decoration all they do is offer unneccessary additional symmetry.

Pet rocks mood rings furbys tack onto that….the throw pillow.   POINTLESS!
