25 Strange Throw Pillows

Throw pillows -- the cheapest way to bring a new look to your room. But new doesn't always mean stylish, chic or pretty...take a look at this list of 25 unusual pillows that run the gamut from clever to downright creepy.

Popped Culture took on the humble throw pillow for their list, coming up with a few that made us smile (think Mac icons, Nintendos and Scrabble tiles) and some that left us scratching our head (the blood pool and Godfather horse head pillows, for example).

But the absolutely strangest of all? The Japanese lap pillow, which is shaped like a kneeling woman's legs (short skirt included) and described as "a comfy cushion for napping, reading or watching television." And though it didn't make the list, there's also a "boyfriend arm pillow" available for the ladies.

Is your sense of humor such that you'd let one of these pillows grace your humble home, or does your taste run to the less attention-getting? And are there any pillows you've spotted that should have made this list?
