Here's some of the notable stuff we found.
Snoop Doggy Doll
This is exactly the kind of item that would be the first to get yanked from your bedroom at a house party, but damn if it wouldn't be fun to own for a few funky months. A rare vinyl toy of which only 600 were made, you can own this unearthly pimp fo' just $89 (though the auction ends at 11 a.m. today). On second thought, a few too many tokes and it would probably scare the crap out of you, staring you down in the corner. "Yes, scary Snoop figurine, the West is the best, just please don't kill me in my sleep!"
Snoop Canvas Painting
We don't know too many chicks that would turn down a bachelor on a leather couch with this fine piece of art lingering overhead. Over a bed in a ratty college dorm, however, is another story. That's just kind of creepy.
Conversely, this is probably chick repellent anywhere but a frat house, but admittedly it made us smirk a bit and then feel guilty about it.
Death Row Platinum Record: Doggystyle
It's $15,000 and awesome, yes, but do you really want a strung-out and/or broke Suge Knight knocking on your door 20 years from now looking for his old memorabilia to flip on eBay for rent money? Likely not. (Note to Suge if you have a Google Alert on your name and see this: Totally just kidding!)
Autographed Dolla' Bill Ya'll
This would be so much more money (literally) if it were a hundo and framed in some really amazing velvet-backed gold frame. $799 for $1 in this economy seems a bit steep, no?
Offensive Tea Towel
It was really Kurupt who said it on Dre's "Housewife", but who cares, you need this bad boy menacingly draped over your oven handle for when your buns get out of line. Beeyotch.
O, behold the joys of Etsy and the random tangents of human creativity. This shiz needs to be on stained glass in the Evangelical Church of Snoop and the G Funk Saints, if there ever is such a thing. May his nizzle bedizzle be with you, Amen.
Life Size Snoop Cut-Out
One, two, three and to the four, this Snoop Dogg cardboard cutout is at the door.... intimidating would-be intruders like a guard Dogg. And what.
Don't get it twisted, thugs need coffee breaks too. Cue scene from Office Space.
