Lionel Richie is one of those weird celebrities like Demi Moore and Kate Winselt who kind of starts looking better as he gets older. See: Lionel Richie circa 1983. And: Lionel Richie now. His songs, of course, have always been the epitome of easy listening genius. And now you--or your mom via a thoughtful gift from you--can have Lionel doling out his best mustachioed mug and lyrical pickup line right on top of your stove, ready to step in and preserve surface cleanliness any time you have a pot to stir or pancake to flip. Spoon rest creator Lenny Mud even gives Richie's famous line from "Hello" the parody treatment for your culinary geek pleasure. "Is it me," Lionel asks, "Is it me you're cooking for?"

Though not printed on the spoon rest itself, Mud's Etsy listing takes the kitchenification of "Hello" a step further, into its opening verse:

"I've been alone with food inside my mind
And in my dreams I've stirred the pot a thousand times
I smell something good right at the door...
HELLO
Is it me you're cooking for?"

The Lionel Richie crooning spoon rest is handmade from earthenware clay that was kiln-fired thrice to over 1900 degrees. It is both dishwasher- and microwave-safe and made from 100% lead-free, nontoxic materials.
