I'd hit that.
I can't answer until I know whether it comes in both male and female.
This is hysterical!
baltimorerowhouse: thank you so much for posting that. it made me giggle.
I thought it was the Alamo...
i have been wanting one of these since Family Guy had an episode with a big ass piñata!!!these look small though....i wonder if they come in bigger sizes
Worth the post just for baltimorerowhouse's comment. Ha!
oh, Apartment Therapy, how could you.... Is there ANYWHERE left on the web that one can go and not see another crude representation of naked women's body parts on the front page?!
that could be nekked men's body parts too....they are only showing the ass end....
Of course it would be a woman's ass and not a man's. Of course....
the actual price is $39.99....the $10.00 is just for the shipping. cheaper to DIY...
Dear lord, I hope those are filled with candy...
Better be an ADULT party!!!!!
That is classic for an adult party! Over the hill...
I dunno what kind of guy would have THAT kind of ass, but that looks like a woman's waist to hip ratio. It'd be hillarious to fill them with chocolate pudding or peanut butta and watching the lucky breaker's face when yummy filling comes out. :D2 Pinatas, 1 cup!!!!
Sigh. Et tu, Apartment Therapy?Violence against women is neither fun nor funny, kids.
oh boy another one automatically assuming it's only against women?
Oh, dear, 'what about teh menz', indeed. Little Flower, my pet, do you see any asses in the above picture that look like male asses? I certainly do not. There may be less curvy, hippy options at the website, but Maxwell picked these to post.
I took one for the team, and clicked on the website. Indeed, only the curvy female version is on offer. It wouldn't be "funny" if it was a dude's butt.
Looks like major cellulite.
Jezebella, MY DEAR, when was the last time you got yourself some ass, been to a nude model art class, or any beach... Summer is coming, baby...take a good look around not everyone out there has a perfect waist to hip ratio. People come in all shapes and sizes. These two piñatas were the only two shapes that website has to offer....sorry to disappoint you but they do not provide less curvy or hippy options. Perhaps you'd like to take a good look at the website too.
i would like to see a big butt on that website. no offense to people - men or women - with big behinds, but i would just like an actual big ass piñata to hit at the next party. that site was kind of disappointing. guess i'll have to DIY it.
Ah - new career idea - piñata ass model.Bring this out at a party and enjoy the akward silence.
I wish AT folks would lighten up sometimes.HILARIOUS- I'll take three.
I'm more amused by the fact that a few up here have no sense of humor. Because yes, instead of hitting the wife, you too can now hit a figure shaped like a woman to vent your frustrations. And instead of jail time you are rewarded with candy.It's a joke boys and girls. And an amusing one at that. But then, people not liking this probably hate Family Guy anyhow. And they are obviously minions of the Darklord.
hehhe that is good --- piñata ass model.buttocks can be very funny no matter what gender!
You're right. Violence against women IS hilarious. I would just love to watch a bunch of drunk dudes get their giggles by beating the hell out of a big curvy female ass. That would be so much fun! Yes, yes it would. Perhaps afterwards I will participate in a Girls Gone Wild video or a wet-t-shirt contest. Because that? That isn't demeaning AT ALL. It is empowerful and sexxay.Little Flower, perhaps you need to work on your reading comprehension. In one post, I suggested that perhaps other options were available. In the next, I noted that I had gone to check the website and discovered that there were no other options.Anybody who knows anything about visual culture knows that a large hip-to-waist ratio reads as "female" in this culture. One may disingenuously pretend that it "might" be a male ass, but we both know that one would be full of it.
Yawn - People think they can silence feminists and other progressive folks by accusing them of having no sense of humour. Luckily it doesn't work. Signed hardcore feminist and piñata ass model.
I guess animal-shaped pinatas promote violence against animals? Aren't you supposed to be blindfolded while you whack at the pinata? I've seen "erotic" cakes with frosting breasts on them -- by eating the frosting breast, am I condoning woman-hating cannibalism? I don't know. I've never thought that pinatas had anything to do with violence.
hahahah, hilarious! my family seems to always have pinatas at events. maybe i should suggest this one? ;)
WOW Jezebella you really really have to LIGHTEN UP!!! I guess you don't like Family Guy either? Perhaps YOU need to go out there and OPEN YOUR EYES as well as your mind. Have you never before seen a not so perfectly porportioned human body naked? Guess NOT.
Ooh, you're about to win anti-feminist bingo! First you call me humorless, now you say I'm too serious and I'm narrow-minded.Now I'm calling you an idiot with terrible reading comprehension skills. Buh-bye!Oh, JefferyK, you're so disingenuous! It never occurred to you that smacking a woman's ass pinata might ever-so-slightly evoke *actual* woman-beating? What a sweet little naif you are.And, sweetcheeks, "erotic" cakes with boobies on them are not even remotely "erotic" to most women. They're just dumb.
I am a so-called hardcore feminist and I don't see what the big fuss is about. It's a silly, juvenile pun at worst. If every little battle is picked, then no one will want to listen when REAL feminist issues arise. Questionably-gendered novelty pinatas do not count as a real issue.And I bust open a donkey pinata every Cinco de Mayo, but it doesn't mean i condone donkey abuse. Oy.
JEZEEEEE - HONEY.... you are clearly still doing a very long walk of shame after what seems to be some pretty crazy parties perhaps during your spring break days? Is that why you picked the name JEZEBELLA? lolDo you think you are winning your argument by name-calling? Aww but it ain't working.
Well, I'd like to think that most people can tell the difference between a pinata and a person. And I'd like to think that most people can tell the difference between a slap on the ass and a beating. I've seen pinatas shaped like heads -- as long as the head is male, no problem, I suppose.
"Questionably-gendered novelty pinatas do not count as a real issue." LOL! - No, I guess it would be hard to build a equity movement around the ass piñata.
I found this old blog page earlier:http://desiretoinspire.blogspot.com/2007_04_15_archive.htmlThat's the kind of thing I used to come to AT for.I didn't come to AT for big ass pinatas. Unless, of course, it's the "new trend" and now someone is going to install lights in it.No. That is NOT a good idea. Don't do it.No, I don't watch Family Guy. I do not watch TV at all. So the Sex in the City is lost on me. I have never seen that show. But I didn't think this was a TV show related site.So what room does the Big Ass Pinata go in, and how does it save the world?
And, bingo it is! "Why fuss about petty things when there are people starving in Africa/war in Iraq/something men consider more important?!" In fact, "Women just can't take a joke" is the very center square in Anti-Feminist Bingo. At least you started with a classic.You anti-feminists are all so very predictable. Don't worry your pretty little head about it, though, I know it's very complicated. "Women are human" has FIVE WHOLE SYLLABLES and they're *very hard words* to understand. Bless your little heart.Oh, I just noticed something! You implied that I'm a slut with that nonsensical "walk of shame" comment! Gosh, could you BE any more predictable? I don't think so. Did you fee-fees get hurt so you had to lash out? You're the one that picked a fight, delicate flora.
i'm not lashing out Jezebella.and i didn't pick a fight. i just chose to disagree with you and stay light-hearted that is all. these are just butt-shaped piñatas nothing for you to get all crazy on your soap-box for. geez you are very tightly wound and need to relax already.
Jezebella: please calm down.
Oh my! It's hilariously ironic that some people sound like they need to blow off steam. And you know what would be awesome to blow off some steam on...... a giant, ass-shaped pinata.
These sort of piñatas have been made in Latin America for ages, they are used mostly for bachelor's parties and the likes and filled with condoms and other adult items. Still, not hot. Okay, maybe after a few margaritas.
Jezebella, we get it. You don't like the pinata. Move on.
Odd how the first two comments here are about the same as the first two comments at "swissmiss".
lol, humorless feminists hate pinata asses.http://easypersiflage.com/blameforum/index.php?topic=5254.30I had a donkey pinata for my sweet sixteen...does that mean i was commiting violence against donkeys?
Wow, lolwhut, i just went to that page.

Come on, it's a pinata. Heehee.
Not hot maybe, but definitely fun.
Er...There's a lot of finger pointing going on here.It's not OK to go around hitting things. Unless it was made to be hit, like a punching bag. About the only thing a punching bag resembles is a really big sausage.Homer Simpson voice: Mmmm, sausage...No, I don't think it's cool to hit a pinata woman butt. No, I don't think it's cool to hit a pinata donkey either. In fact, I yelled off my balcony at a little boy hitting bushes. I went down to talk to him, and then to show him the beauty of the bushes and what they did and how the grew and what the flowers smelled like. I told him the name of the bushes, and explained why it was important not to beat around the bush.He had a lot of internal aggression. Much like most kids have a lot of energy and no place to use it. So instead I tried directing that energy into mental tasks and physical tasks, like walking around the property to find different plants. Like "How many different kinds of plants can you find right here?"And I spent time with him. So he learned. And he never beat a bush in my view again.Now...Some people start stuff.We know that.And we want to know why.Here's what I want to know.I want to know why this was even posted. I'm wondering if the site is having problems keeping traffic coming in and has to resort to such cheesy tactics as posting stupid-ass pinatas to drive controversy and comments.There have been a plethora of strange posts on this site lately. I made a joke about this becoming the National Enquirer Apartment Therapy (NEAT).Sleazy and cheesy makes me uneasy, and does NOTHING for my apartment. I cannot make any connection between the pinata and my apartment. Or anyone's apartment.Bring back the good design. Or bad design. Please.
Dear Maxwell:I respect your work, your design, your books, and your blog. You seem like a smart guy.With all due respect, I have to ask: Did you really not see how this might be offensive, or are you trolling your own blog?Jez
lolwhut, you're a stalker and an ass-hat.It's amazing how many design snobs are going to the mat over a tacky piece of crap.
And even more amazing that you are even still here.
If you are really trying to raise awareness of these issues of women's rights, please stop name-calling. Have a dialog with an open mind. You will NEVER change anyone's mind by hurling insults at them. They will put their defenses up and call you shrill and reactionary. And your points, however valid, will be lost.I'm very, very concerned about this new generation of feminists...Love,A Feminist From Way Back
jezebella: it's an ASS PINATA. get over it.little flower: someone doesn't like the ass pinata. get over it.i'm not sure if i wrote that because i wanted to chip in my $0.02 about this inane flame war or because i just wanted the chance to write "ass pinata."
thanks lemonpie - this whole thread got so ridiculous.
Yup, and I did it all by myself, little flower. You, sir, are the soul of decency, discretion, and restraint.
who's gonna have the last word?(I keep checking back cuz this is hillarious!)
I checked back for the humour too - I feel slightly ashamed of my curiousity and that the phrase Ass Piñata crossed my mind today at work and made me smile. The bad thing is I can't discuss this with my friends/family - too hard to explain and it requires the horrific visual - and I don't want to subject my friends to that.Signed Peacelily, a feminist who WILL NOT take this on as an equity issue.
maybe big ass pinatas need to look like this so jezebella won't feel so bad hitting it...THIS is funny:http://www.englishrussia.com/?p=1308
i dont want to eat candy that fell out of an ass.
